Brrrrr - It's time for indoor activities!

With the weather getting colder (except this past weekend!) and a bit of random snow, we have been staying inside a bit more than usually the last few weeks. This means lots of entertaining for Lilah - times when she entertains us and times when we have to entertain her!

Lilah has gotten very good at what the clinical folks call "independent play." She is usually happy to sit with a book for a bit, play in her kitchen or sometimes just run in circles around the house. However, when she wants your attention, she is sure to get it as she is getting more vocal each day. Mastering the word "please" Lilah knows that it will get her just about anything and so she uses it for basically any occasion.

Jason and Darryl are in the process of building her a Leggo table, but the Leggos delivered before the table was completed so Lilah has discovered the joy of putting things together only to take them apart again! You can see in the background that Hunter is worn out just watching all her activity,

This past weekend was a busy one for the whole Boig family. On Thursday night my sister and mom arrived from their trek cross country - delivering my sister safely to DC where she will be for the next six month interning at The World Bank - hurray! Then on Friday we had music class, followed by a trip to Aunt Ashley's apartment where Lilah ran around for at least an hour from room to room to make sure it was satisfactory for her Aunt to live in.

On Saturday Lilah had her first non family non friend babysitter in over a year, while Jason and I attended a most amazing dinner with Erika and David that they had bid on in an silent auction. Lilah took it in stride and was fast asleep, full and happy when we arrived home.

Sunday was a day of sports. For those following along on my Twitter feed you have seen the photos - but in case you missed it we attended the Caps hockey game around 12:30 where Lilah proceeded to fall asleep early in the third period.

We then headed home to clean up and get ready for Superbowl, where we had a few of our favorite (and Lilah's favorite) folks over including - you guessed it - Alexander! She also took in some quiet reading time with Beth and Mookie - which would be cute enough expect that we learned that night that she can also say "Beth" and today she has learned to say "Mookie!". Good thing she learned to finally say "Mommy" first!.
With quite an exciting gamem Lilah fell asleep in the last (and I am not kidding here) 45 seconds of the game making her mom miss one of the greatest comebacks and then turnarounds in years.

And because no posting is complete without some videos - here is Lilah rocking out to her "Fridge DJ."

As well as her "Lawnmower Dance."
