Lila Lunes: You guys, she turns 2 in 4 months.

Oh Lila.
You're awesome.

It's true. You're cool. It's been ridiculously fun watching your personality develop. I can safely say, I adore you. So does your Daddy. He always says, "I've never smiled this much until Lila came along." And it's so true.

I cannot even fathom that you're four months shy of two years old... It seems like in the past month you've skyrocketed from my sweet little baby to my big girl. I mean, slow your roll already. Ok?

You smile all.of.the.time.

And you talk INCESSANTLY. (My Mom says this is how I was. Imagine that.) And, you've discovered that you're funny. And you've discovered how awesome it is to be funny in front of others. Laughing is part of your daily schedule.

Speaking of your daily schedule; it involves going to the park everyday, playing with your water table, eating cheese, playing with sidewalk chalk, petting Ferg, tickling Vivi, reading, dancing and playing. (Not a bad life.)

You've seamlessly morphed into a good big sister and have truly shown no signs of jealousy. (I'm serious.)

In fact, this past weekend you were standing on the bed in Vivi's room over and over again and falling backwards into the pillows.

Sadly, you bonked your head really hard on the [concrete] wall. (Poor parenting on my part, I know. Hey - accidents happen.) And you screamed and lifted your arms for me. I held you for 8 seconds then you pointed to Vivi who was just feet away... I took you to her, you tickled her and snuggled her and you IMMEDIATELY stopped crying.

Sweet girl, cuddling with your sister made you feel better.

[insert heavy, happy, Mommy sigh...]

At this point in your 20 months, there is one very obvious love of your life:

Your Daddy.

I think the feeling is mutual.

You're awesome, Lila.

Love you to the moon and back.


More pics...

WHERE did my baby go?

I adore how your dress.

Lila's new light-up shoes from cousin Chloe are a danger: she never looks UP when she walks... she's too busy staring at her feet. :)

Lila and her sister.

Pig tails.

"Mommy, please get out of my view of Yo Gabba Gabba."

She's growing up.

 "Lila" as taken by Chloe...

At the beach... Posing.
