Lila Ross • 11.5 months old

Q. So how has Lila melted your heart recently?
A. Well, yesterday we bought her a new pool and she loves it. She was standing up saying, "Mamamamamamama" and then came over to me and gave me a BIG mouth kiss. Oh, I love those moments... She's so much more interactive and I HEART it.

Here's the new pool, and the old pool.
She upgraded.

I'm in my new pool!

(These were taken just moments after my sweetie pie smooched me.)

Q. What's new with Lila this week?
 A. I think she's being especially precious this week. Or, it could be that I'm sentimental that she's nearly one year old.

It's hard being Lila. Sometimes you just breakdown. I get it.

Look at that lip.

 And... then she's fine. She turns it on, then off. I don't know where she gets that...

Q. So, what's our plan with weaning/sippy cups/bottles?
A. As of right now, we're taking it one step at a time. First step, her afternoon milk is now being served in a sippy cup - not a bottle. It's actually going over quite well. See?

Q. Is Lila walking yet?
A. Nope! The little lady is not walking yet, however she is cruising (still) We figure she has the rest of her life to walk; she can start whenever she's most comfortable. :) No worries here. We actually prefer that she sticks to more important things: like checking the receipts after we return from the grocery store.

Q. What's Lila eating these days?
A. Her faves right now are white beans, cheddar cheese, green beans, zucchini and sweet potatoes. She has had chicken and stated that she'd like absolutely nothing to do with it ever again, thank you very much.

Here she is enjoying a cucumber, squirrel-style.

Q. Can I believe that it's almost been a year?
A. NO. I cannot believe that it's almost been a year. I'm shocked. I'm floored. I've learned so much. (Tear...)

Ok, onward to the pictures of the week...

 Here's Lila offering Ferg some Cheerios.

(I love this one.)

Lila and her buddies. Gil and Ferg.

And, we have another breakdown.

How sad is that one tear?

She's still offering us her items.
"Care for these sunglasses?"

And, the best eyes-closed picture of the week.

Yep! I'm standing!

Peeking around her chair. Lila must ALWAYS know what's going on around her.

Kissing Ferg.
(I think Ferg's smiling.)

Really? More pictures?

And, my favorite picture of the week.
My less-than-a-year-old BABY and I wish you a very happy week,


  1. I definitely agree that Ferg was smiling in the pictures! Those 2 love each other and it's the cutest thing to see in pictures!! What a heartbreaker she is going to be!!

  2. I just love the pigtails on top of her head!!!! What a sweetie!

  3. Such a cutie!!

    Almost one... Are you planning a big party?!

  4. Awe...almost a year. CRAZY. I adore that last picture. Her face is precious, and I'm in love with that curl on her left side.

    What a munchkin.

  5. I am floored at how expressive she is in pictures, Ky. I swear, she looks more and more like you the older she gets. (Surprisingly, the more ornery faces are the ones that look most like you. What is that about??)

    How much do I love that your daughter loves her dog/bestie? LOVE IT. I just want to smooch her face. :)

  6. Lila looks like someone I'd like to hang out with. She seems like a good time gal.

    I think my favorite picture is the one with her checking your grocery store receipts WITH HER SWIM GOGGLES ON! Hahaha! Ahahahah! Hilarious to the max.

  7. That pool is very cool!

    The breakdown pictures are hilarious. I have plenty of those of the girls and I plan to break them out later in their life, ha ha!
