Kirkland acts like Lily's second mom. She will bring her binky to her or go and talk to her if she's crying. It's too cute!
We're getting geared up for a BIG weekend. On Friday night I am helping my mom and two others host a shower for my friend since 6th grade, Katie Wales. I am helping to make food, set up, etc. Then Uncle Nick and his friend Tim are coming in on Friday for the race. On Saturday we have about 20 more guests coming in town and we're having a BBQ on Saturday night. Am I crazy?? Two parties in two nights with a 7 month old? Then on Sunday we are off to the race and Lily is staying with Nana and Grandad Mark. There are 24 of us taking a bus down to the track and we have a section of tickets together which is a recipe for a great time. Although I a little stressed now, it is going to be a great weekend spent with lots of good friends.

Lily is learning how to drink from a sippy cup! I usually give the cup to her right before I change her into her clothes for the day. That way, she can get as wet as she wants. Today, she had poured most of the water on the tray, so I added a little rice cereal to see what she would do. First, she put her hand in it and was totally confused. Then she took her clean hand and tried to get the cereal off with her other hand. With some frustration, she realized that would not work, so she dipped her hand in the rice cereal. After a couple of minutes, Lily discovered she could swish her hand in the cereal and then eat it. She thought that was fun!
Today, Tyler's lacrosse team begins the end of the year tournament. Good luck to them! Also, update on Tyler's mini marathon run (thanks for reminding me Jenny!)...he finished in under 2 hours and never stopped running. I was rather impressed!!!

I figured out how to download movies from my camera! I'm pretty proud of myself, because I usually stumble with "technological things". Anways, here's a little clip of Lily's new favorite...her Jumparoo. She would be in it for hours if she could.
She has also been eating Cheerios all by herself. She can usually get one in her mouth about 1/3 of the time. They usually end up sticking to her face or hand or are on the floor. It's pretty funny to watch.

Lily also proved her toughness there. She was playing with some toys and a girl came over who could walk and snatched the toy right out of Lily's hands. The girl started to play with it right in front of Lily. She decided she would have none of that, so she reached all the way over and snatched the toy right back. Glad to know she can stick up for herself.
Also, yesterday the Pack and Play came down in the family room. Lily used to take naps all the time in it when she was little, but now she will only take naps in her crib. It's nice to see that only most of our family room (instead of all of it) it being taken over by baby stuff. But the toys are multiplying quickly and I'm sure will take over soon enough.
