One other moment I have to share happened before the sickness this morning....
Lily is speaking in short sentences a lot now. One she loves to say has to do with everyone we know sliding on her slide. So, she starts with herself, then she says, "Mama slide, too." Of course, I slide, too. Then, she starts naming stuffed animals, people who aren't here, and lastly she always wants our cats to slide. The first time she said it, we thought it was so cute that we got two of our cats and forced them to slide for Lily. What were we thinking? So, this morning, she said, "Jo Jo slide, too, Mama." I responded," You want Jo Jo to slide?" Lily replied, "Yes!" Jamie voiced his opinion, "Have you asked Jo Jo if she wants to slide?" Lily quickly replied, "Yes." Then Jamie cameback with this statement, "Well, what did she say?" Lily stopped and stared at Jamie for a split second, then she said, "Meooow." (in her perfect Jo Jo voice.) We cracked up! You never know what children are going to say, do you? Besides, it sounded just like something Jo Jo would say. :0)

In December of 2002 after my Mom passed away, Jamie and I took a trip to Paris, France. When you lose someone who means everything to you, it seems as though life takes on an entirely different meaning. Life is too short, and I had always desired to see Paris for myself. So, we went, and we had a wonderful time. We are passing on our love of travel to Lily, and she already knows so much about Paris (especially the Eiffa Towwur). We can't wait until she is old enough to go back with us for a return trip.

This was one of our many funny moments with Lily over the weekend. You have to really listen closely to hear her tell Abby- her K'nex Abby made with building blocks- that she is sorry. Lily has started saying complete sentences now like "Where did Baba go?" and "I love you, Mama- I love you, Baba" and "Lily slide, too, Mama" and " Excuse you, Baba" and "Lily go to bed now". Who says all those things about terrible 2's? I love this age!

Lily now recognizes all of her alphabet, except for X and Y. She still gets them confused. She will just sing bits and pieces of the ABC song, but she loves saying whatever we say. So, this is one of her copycat moments. She loves copying everything we say and do!

Lily started trying to say "I love you" a few weeks ago, but now, she seems to actually understand what it means, and her words are much clearer every day. She says, "I joooove you, Mama" and "I joooove you, Baba" all of the time now. It seriously brings us to happy tears. It is hard to believe we have waited so long to hear those words. The wait was soooo worth it!

We have been singing this song to Lily since she was little. Now, she has started singing it to her Abby doll. We love listening to her sing- usually the last word of every line. And of course, the last word is loud and long! Have a great weekend!
