Big Winner!

On Saturday, we headed to It'z... basically a bigger, better Chuck E Cheese's with a pizza buffet and even a separate fenced area for little kids like Lilly. Lilly loved it.  

While we were busy playing a game, Lilly dragged Christian over to this large spin a wheel game. Christian swiped the token card and Lilly pulled the lever. And what do you know... she landed on the bonus... 500 tickets!  Some music started playing and Lilly started dancing as tickets started spewing out.

You can see in the top of this photo, how little the 500 tickets part it, just a little line.

Apparently a bunch of other kids were around and watching and saying "Look! That little baby can play it better than us!"

 Look at all those tickets!

What a lucky little girl we have. Christian starting filming this after she won the jackpot.

And this is what Lilly got at the end with all the tickets we collected! A pillow pet. She has always wanted one of these, whenever we pass them in the mall... now she finally has one.

Lilly's Most Common Phrases

Lilly has started to put words together and make phrases. She is using 2 words at a time but the phrases she uses are definitely growing in number. It seems everyday she has a new one.  Here are some of her most common ones to date.

"Come back" (generally aimed at Twinkle the dog)

"Where go?" (This is probably the most common phrase that comes out of her mouth right now, besides the word no. She is usually talking about Twinkle, Dad, or Bestefar)

"Sit down" ( though it really sounds like I taught my daughter to curse, aka "s*it down")

"Stinky poo poos" (usually said in response to the question "Do you need a diaper change?")

"No, mine" (Whenever Twinkle gets to close to Lilly's toys, food, or blanket)

"No, way" (of course, couldn't have a list without this now trademark phrase)

"Look, fome!" (aka "look phone" but you can replace phone with pretty much any object Lilly knows the name of)

"Airpain, Airpain" (aka "airplane", This is recited upon any noise that sounds like it might be an airplane)

"Boom, Boom" (when thunder or "funder" is heard or when she finds a glue gun and acts like it is a real gun)

No, No, No Way

This video cracks me up. Lilly is such a fireball these days. She definitely know what she wants and if you ask her to do something it is often answered with a "No Way!"  We're not exactly sure where this came from but she has been doing it for a while now. It's half funny and half extremely frustrating. Oh well.

Lilly and her Sweet Dance Moves

Lilly is a pretty good dancer, if you ask me. Better than me at least.

But I think I found out where she gets it from.

haha. I think Christian might kill me for posting this. But it is too funny to not share with the masses.

Summer Swimming

One of Lilly's favorite things about Bestemor and Bestefar's house is the pool. She absolutely loves going swimming. The water is always warm and it is ALWAYS hot outside. It is actually pretty tiring though because she doesn't like the float we got her. She likes to be held. She likes to do all the dangerous stuff and act like she can swim, when she can't. She likes to jump into the water, even when you aren't ready for her.  We are working on that. She has jumped in and gone under quite a few times but she is getting better at waiting until we tell her to go.

Just chillin with my frog and my mini duckie.

Pool flavored apples, yum.

 She has become a dangerous climber.

And jump!

Check out those curls.

Stopping for a snack. 

Whoops. Swim diaper wedgie.

Dancing in the Rain

Lilly enjoyed some dancing and  swimming in the rain, fully clothed, thanks to some late afternoon rain showers. She loved it.

Sorry some of the pics are dark. I was too lazy to fix 'em and I think you get the idea.

Lilly from Last Week

or last month. Who's keeping track? Cause I'm certainly not. Anyways,  here are some funny and cute pictures of Lilly from recent days.

Despite her face, she actually really liked eating the corndog.

Decked out with all her bling.

Can you say WEDGIE?

Christian and Lilly BeanFace.

Every naked baby needs a hippo and a teapot.

The Tat

Here is our little rebel child. She's not even two and she already has a tatoo.

She loved it at first. Until she wanted to take it off. Then she kept pinching at her skin and yet it wouldn't come off. She kept getting so mad. It was kinda hilarious.

The Fourth

On Monday we headed to the Woodlands (the city just north of Spring) for their parade. We got there probably about 30 minutes early, found the perfect escape parking spot, and a perfect spot on the side of the road in the shade. The only thing we forgot was chairs and our bums were hurting by the end from sitting on the curb.

Lilly trying to steal some stranger's chair.

Lilly's first catch of the day. A little American flag.

Second, a balloon for some politician's campaign. And this is before the parade even started. It was a welcome distraction.

This is when the parade started with all the firetrucks and police cars and all their sirens going off.

Lilly waving to all the people in the parade that wave at her.

Our best attempt at a family photo. Lilly was too interested in the parade obviously.

Lilly was full of funny faces that day.

Here you can see Lilly with her quarter. One of the banks that was in the parade was handing out quarters to the kids. Lilly had hers for about 7 minutes until she dropped it, it rolled away, and the kids next to us took it. Oh well.

And this is what happens when I ask her to smile. Beautiful.

I think Halloween will be a breeze this year. She already has the hang of it.

Asleep before we even got home. The parade was 2 hours long so it definitely wore her out!
All of Lilly's loot. Including candy, water bottle, t-shirt, sunscreen, bracelet, necklace, lanyard, 3 American flags, a pinwheel, stickers, a tatoo, and coupons for free food from Chick-Fil-A and a free ice cream cone. As well as a free popsicle for each of us that didn't make it home :)
