Mothers Day and more

Lily got her very first haircut on the 12th of May. I was so worried that she would throw a huge tantrum because the girl does not like her head touched. I was also worried that it would take away from her babyness. She does look older but the cut is adorable and she did pretty well considering she was not the least bit happy about the situation.

The calm before the storm.

What Lily really thought about her haircut. The lady who cut her hair was super patient.

And the finished product, a short and stylish bob.

Mothers Day was wonderful. We went back to the duck pond. Lily loves the animals she sees and the freedom she has to walk around. We took sandwiches and snacks and just hung out for hours. My kind of relaxation. Auntie Jessica included Lily in a game of ring around the rosie. I wish you could have heard it. Lily's giggle is infectious.

Troy and Ava fishing in the duck pond. We didn't have the patience to catch a fish but she did lure a stick her way. Last time we were at the duck pond she saw someone catch a fish. We asked her what she thought and she said it was terrible. Perhaps it is good we only caught a stick.Is this not the cutest picture you've seen. Perhaps I'm biased but com' on.
Lily in her new bikini. I wanted to capture her in it before she outgrows it but she doesn't have time to pose. You will just have to trust me that it is adorable.

Cinco de Mayo


THIS IS MY LITTLE DARLING ALL DRESSED UP FOR HER CELEBRATION. I can not believe how much she has grown and changed in one years time. Oh, how one wonderful being can change everything. She is absolutely amazing. To think back on the little sweet soul that entered our lives with the easy smile and quiet ways. When she first came to us she slept all the time. I think she kept going to sleep in hopes that when she awoke she would see something familiar. To her dismay we kept appearing at her bedside. I can not imagine my world changing so much in a day. Lily is a prime example that children are truly resilient.
We invited Nonnie and Papa and Grandma and Grandpa to help us celebrate and honor our forever family. Lily showed off quite a bit and decided food was not for eating but for playing. We left our waiter a hefty tip and Lily left a giant mess. We must explore everything!
And here is the true face of Lily. Sugar and SPICE mixed in with a whole lot of silliness. I just love it!
She is getting one of her molars. OWEE. That finger is almost permanently in her mouth.
Can you tell it's time to go? She didn't even want to try the ice cream. Yes to all of you out there who have thought us mean and torturous to not feed our darling the sweet stuff. We have decided to let her try her hand at an occasional sugary snack. so far our efforts have been thwarted and sweets have been rejected. I assume that it is only a temporary dislike.
