God has given us so many things to be thankful for. Of course, we are most thankful for our daughter, and for the way He planned her life specifically to be ours. We know that Lily was no Plan B for us. God knew before time began that Lily would be born in China, and He knew that she would be brought up in our family as our very own. The first three pictures show one of my favorite new things that she is doing... being our copycat! She loves copying everything we do- the way we eat, drink, sit, talk, and walk! I love watching her want to be like us!
How cute is she with her little hands right behind her back...
Just like her Mama's hands! She does this at least once a day now.
Another thing we are very thankful for today is the Avent Magic Cup. How cool is this sippy cup! If only we had discovered this earlier- we would have never had problems with the switch to the cup. It is truly magic, and Lily loves it. She can shake it, turn it upside down, and throw it anywhere- with no leakage. This is good for a child who really wants to play with her new "toy" cup.
Last, but not least, we are so thankful for our Nanny- Aunt Mindy. We are so thankful that we get to leave Lily here every day in such good hands. It is so nice to come home to a happy child who is so well cared for during the day. Plus, it is such a bonus for her to get to have her cousin here with her, too! I hope that they will be such good friends as they grow older. I wish I had a video of the other day when Lily "hiya" kicked Nathan (which her Aunt Suzette taught her), then Nathan pushed her down, and finally Lily patted him on the head and kissed him. But, Mindy did take some video of her today after she woke up from her nap. Nathan is in the playhouse- so you will see him for a second, too.
