Tantrums and Tahoe

No one warned me the 2 phase would start early!

These last few weeks Lily has been entering the rights of passage to her second year. My once all to agreeable baby is becoming a full fledge toddler-esk little being. She now throws herself on the floor and cries for no apparent reason and if I walk away from the tantrum she follows me room to room. It is really quite amusing. My mom was over the other day and I was at the back of the house where Lily layed herself at my feet. I left that room and walked out to the kitchen and my darling little one ran down the hallway passed her Nonnie smiling and then planted herself on the floor in front of me and started her tantrum once again. And yes to all of you who have met her I do mean that quiet angelic little girl pictured at the top of this page. Those photos are of picture day where Lily exercised the right to say "no" and speak her mind. All qualities I am happy that she possesses!?! I love this new challenge I am not complaining. I always thought that I would love the baby stage the best. That stage where fixing there problems consisted of a bottle or a diaper change. But I must say this new stage far surpasses the last. She just keeps getting more fun with each new stage. So wish me luck that I survive 2 tantrums and all! And to all of you currently parenting one of these independent little creatures I drink my margarita as the little one rests her eyes and bid you cheers!

In this photo I caught the telltale scent that told me that ones diapers must be changed. I told Lily where we were going and she ran into my bedroom and got into Stuey's dog crate. Which is made for a 8-12 pound dog not my petite 22 1/2 (the half is important) pound beauty.

Peter and I took our first away trip just the two of us since the arrival of Miss Sassy pants. We had a wonderful time. We went to Tahoe for the night and even won 162 dollars with 2 pulls on a slot machine! My first win ever. The below pictures are some self portraits of our time together. When we got home sassy was very glad to see us. We even had our first phone conversation where she said hi and bye.

I was just telling Eric earlier today how I think Maya is so much fun at this stage. Yes, tantrums and all! It's almost like a game, trying to guess if she'll listen to this "no", or look at me and then do it anyway, or just pitch a screaming fit. Maya started a little early too... she's so advanced that she started the 'terrible 2's' at 18 months! LOL!
