Throughout the tour, Lily kept reaching out for chocolates saying "peas?" After watching the chocolates get made, all were given a free sample too, which Lily loved. She kept saying "mo, mo" while simultaneously using sign language to be sure I understood what she was after : )
This is Lily's little friend Olivia and her mommy Allison. Olivia is just one day older than Lily. Lily also plays w/ Olivia's brother Luca who is 3.
And then getting to eat it! [February 13, 2008]

21 Months!!! Where has the time gone! This count down to 2 is compounded by the fact that baby #2 will be here by then. Yikes!
Lily is growing up so quickly. She feeds herself well with utensils and can drink out of a glass. She is counting to 15 for each stair we climb upstairs to her room. She can even spell her name, thanks to the B-I-N-G-O song. For play she loves to be on the go. Regular outings include going to her gym Monkey Business, story time at the library, grocery shopping, and play groups. At home she loves her kitchen. She makes a lot of tea, which she carefully hands to patrons using a pot holder while cautioning them that it's hot. She enjoys play-doh and crafts at her little table. She enjoys pushing her doll in her stroller (while walking the dog and talking on the cell phone), playing with her stacking pegs, writing on her wipe board, and sliding down her toy slide. She LOVES music and dancing and sings along to a lot of songs whil shaking her 'bon-bon'.
She seems very excited about her new baby brother or sister. She insists the baby is a boy. Throughout the day she frequently lays her head on my tummy, tells the baby hi, kisses them, and snuggles for a bit. Very sweet. Let's hope it lasts once the baby is born!
Happy 21-month birthday peanut!!!

Our friends Greg Vincke, and Randy Ruddy's little brother Denny Ruddy (and friend Eric) helped kick off the reconstruction activities. Lily LOVED having all of the boys around to play with. Especially Uncle Greg. Uncly Randy is sooooo 2007.
It wasnt' all work for Lily. Despite her room undergoing a bit of reconstruction, she still managed to find some time to kick back and run up bills on Uncle Greg's cell phone. She actually does a lot of pretend talking to her cousin Julia.
We do feed the crew, so Lily helped make a lot of dinners. Here she dishes out ice cream for the peach cobbler. Already a great chef, she made sure to have frequent tastes to ensure the quality was up to par. [Lily, just for future reference, you demanded ot wear the water shoes]
