Weekend Updates....and two weeks left till ONE YEAR

OK readers of the MMB blog, I have a small bone to pick with you all ... how is it that I post cute photos, funny stories and updates for over a year with one small comment here and there and Jason posts TWO updates in one year and gets FIVE comments. I see I am just not cute enough for you all! ;) (note winking eye means this is just a joke and I am not really mad so please keep coming back to read!)




So that said on to the updating. This past weekend my mom came to town to visit. We realized it was the first time someone has been here on a weekend in quite a while, so we took advantage of her to be our personal photographer for swim class (we tried music class too but that picture did not come out so well)! As you can see we all do really get into the pool with her and she is getting really good and splashing around and her favorite game - let's climb out of the pool and crawl away. I especially like the song where at the end we all go shhhhhh as this is suppose to teach them when to be loud and when to be quiet. Silly instructor silly silly silly.

We ran lots and lots of errands and tried our best to tire Lilah out all weekend but as you can see from the first photo above that only seemed to work when she was reading. Now that Lilah has learned to crawl and stand up and walk with our assistance she has been pretty unstoppable.



She is also learning to feed herself - which is great! and messy. We have been allowing her to go for it and the calamity that has ensured has been quite funny. I also learned last night that if I substitute broccoli for organic O's as a finger food she doesn't seem to care. Yea! Although she did spend quite a bit of time trying to feed the broccoli to me while keeping the O's for herself - hmmm.






She has also gotten even more expressive than ever as you can see from this photo. Right now sticking her tongue out is her favorite thing to do in the car, in the house, on the street - you get the picture.

I only just started reading the blog, so I should be exempt from comments about my comments...or, rather, lack of...
