Slow down!

The sheer speed with which my child is growing right in front of my eyes is, at this moment, the most overwhelming part of being a parent. Here is why:

I cleaned and put away all the bottles.

She says "dogga" and makes a solid attempt at saying "woof, woof". That is, until Seth tried to teach her sheep and baa and now she sometimes says "dogga, woof, woof" and other times says "dogga, baa, baa".

She is a full on dancing machine. Bravo Sara...I am waiting for you to come to my house to attempt to recreate the All the Single Ladies video. Sometimes she even dances to no music which I am certain she learned from Sara. Sara beats to the drum in her head and I LOVE that Lila hears the same drum ;-)

She spends an exorbitant amount of time talking. Not to me, not to Molly, but just to herself. Mirrors are the highlight of her day. I find this particular quality to be HYSTERICAL. I posted this video on Facebook with the note that I see the possibility of "talks too much" on a future report card....

And finally, SHE WALKED!!! Ok so, it was pretty forced on our parts, BUT, she officially CAN do it. Don't get me wrong...I don't want to rush this. Walking truly signifies that the teeny, tiny, baby days are over and I am not sure I can handle that. However, it is fun to help her see how capable she is...(please excuse my horrendous outfit...I spent nap time scrubbing down bathrooms today).


  1. Yay Lila!!! How exciting! I love the video of her talking to herself in the mirror too. She seems to know EXACTLY what she's talking about!

  2. Congratulations- that's so exciting! I used to get reports cards all the time that said "If Christine was here to socialise she would get an A!" I like that she's a talker! :)

  3. So cute! I can't believe she's walking! Remember that video of you as a kid singing to yourself in the mirror, that's what the video of Lila reminds me of. She's getting more and more like her mom!
