Walking! And Noooo!

Lilleigh has been walking!

Since I took this video a few days ago, she's been walking a lot more! Like across the room voluntarily! ;) Truly a toddler! She's growing so fast!!!

And she's also learned to say no. But not so much because of mommy (or I don't think...) but because of Spot the Dog! Hilarious! Thankfully she says it in a sweet way. Enjoy story time.

Is He able?

Last night we started MoneyWise 2. MoneyWise is a ministry at our church, focusing on our finances and God's kingdom. It's not unlike Crown or Dave Ramsey, though from what I understand it delves deeper. MoneyWise 2 is more of a follow up to Crown, which we did years ago.

She stills drinks from straw sippy cups. We have a few soft spout sippys that she will drink from, but it's confusing for her to have to tip those but not the straws... if we had more straw sippys, I'd only use those. I may just put the spout ones away... Learning to use utensils. I know this will be a long journey! But she does sometimes scoop food onto her spoon and then sometimes that food even makes it into her mouth! Ha!Loves to swing! She's loved this since she was a newborn. Back then it was in her Fisher-Price lamb swing. Now it's in her Little Tykes swing outside or the baby swing at the park. She's content there for a good hour, but she's lucky if mom lasts 10 minutes.Loves her wagon! We go on wagon rides often. And if I need to do so…
