Long Break

I'm back! I left last Wednesday to go babysit Kirkland and Kjirste and I got back late last night. That's why I have been MIA. Three girls under the age of 3 gave me little time to update the blog. We had a great week together and Lily had a blast with the girls. They wore her out so much that she was sleeping past 9 a.m., which is unheard of for Lily Grace Mayer. Everything went well, except for the alarm going off in the middle of the night and the police coming to make sure there were no burglars, but that's a story for a different day.

Kirkland and Kjirste moved to Chicago today. :( I have been babysitting for the Miller family for over 2 1/2 years. I met Kirkland when she was just six months old and I knew Kjirste when she was born. They have been Lily's little buddies and my little buddies, too. We are going to miss the Miller family a lot, but hopefully we will get to visit them.

Lily is sooooo close to walking. I honestly think it's going to be any day. She has a lot more confidence when she is standing. Lily definitely has a little mischievous side to her and I think I'm going to be in trouble when she can walk.
Tyler's football team won again. They will be heading off to semi-state next weekend. I'm excited the team is doing well, but I'm ready for Tyler to be home. I know he is ready to be home, too.
Other than that, I will have a slightly less hectic schedule. I won't be nannying, so I will have more days home to hang out with Lily. I'm really looking forward to that. Also, today is Lily's 13th months birthday! How bout that! One last cousin Kate and Brian had their baby!!! It's a little boy named Jack and he is adorable. That's the 3rd boy cousin within a year, but I'm sure Lily will have no problem bossing all 3 of them around in a couple of years. My cousin Patrick and Becky will be having their baby soon. Hopefully, it will be a girl for Lily to play with. :)

Lily, consider your gift from NYC your 13th month gift, because I forgot to get one. The thing from New York is for good luck, though, and I think you need to post some pics of you wearing it...

Dear Allison, Tyler, Lily and all gentle readers:

I agree 100% with Sabrina--the girls look great in their matching pj's. All the best to Lily's friends as they move to Chicago.

Now, I can't resist. Visiting NANA and eating a baNANA. Grandma Mark and Grandma Mayer need to be careful that Lily doesn't get the two confused and suddenly a finger might be missing!

I do hope that the writers of this blog are planning Thanksgiving, Saint Nicholas, Saint Lucy, 14th month birthday, Christmas, and New Year's photo and story opportunities! Expectations are high.

God bless,

Fr. Steve
