messy eater

Lily has had a few fun meals lately...first she had her first spaghetti dinner in which she spread all over her face! (I think it was even on her eyelashes!) Second, she really loved eating some yogurt. I recently learned how to make yogurt in my crockpot!! I was really excited about it, especially when it turned out great and Lily loved it!

Isn't she the cutest??

Montano de Oro

This past Sunday we went on a hike with our church out to a state park, Montano de Oro. It was a great day for a hike. Lily had her first experience riding in the backpack...and she, unfortunately, had her first bloody owie. She took a little tumble on some asphalt and got a scrape on her nose! The hike was about 3 hours and we had a great time.


Well, this was Lily's second Easter...but she was only 2 days old last year =) We had Steve's dad (better known as PopPop), Uncle Dave, and the Ilacs over on Easter. I made my first ham ever and it was a beautiful day. We even got to walk down and play at the new park near our house. And, of course, Lily was all dressed up!

lots of things new

I know it has been quite a while since the last post...between work and holidays and playing with Lily, it's hard to find a free moment or two! Needless to say, Lily is growing up more and more each day. She is walking all over the place now, is becoming quite opinionated in her old age of "almost 14 months" and even knows 8 words!! (we counted: mama, dada, buhbye, hi, ball, bubba, wow, and her new favorite...no!) It's been so long, I thought I would give a little buffet of pictures to show all the things Lily has been up to:

She learned how to go down the slide all by herself!

She is a big walker now, even pushing her doll around in a stroller.

Lily learned that it is really fun to play in the sand.

She loves her ice cream!

GoodNight Moon is her favorite book.

She can show us her belly!

All in all, she is awesome and we think she's the greatest!
