Mimi's visit, Ice Cream, and Father's Day

Just wanted to give a picture update of our last week!

Mimi and Pierre came to visit. Lilleigh loooved Pierre! And she walked around the house calling for "Mimi." It's just so easy to say!

On Saturday night we hosted an ice cream social for our street. It was in our yard and our next door neighbors' yard. We had a decent turn out. And two families made their own ice cream!



Sunday was Father's Day. We went to church together and then Brendon opened his gifts, with Lil's help! And that night we had friends over for a steak dinner. They are pregnant with their first child, and Tristyn has been on bed rest. Thankfully though she is off bed rest, as of yesterday!



Also last time I updated, Lil was not enjoying swim lessons. I am happy to report that last week we had a fun swim day with some friends. Aunt Randi helped her enjoy the water! Then today at swimming lessons, she was much happier. The water was still kinda cold though (it was only like 78 outside!), so she wasn't the happiest camper but still a huge improvement!

Our last month and Lil at 16 months!

It's naptime, and of course, I have a bajillion other things I could and should be doing, but I also think it's time for an update. It's just been too long!

Today Lilleigh is 16 months! Here's a little about her this month...
  • Running! 
  • Loves bubbles.
  • Says a bajillion words. When I counted about 6 weeks ago, she had 30+ words. This month it seems that she's had 1 or 2 new words per day. So I've stopped counting. The girl can talk! Oh and she can now say "Jesus" and sign it - well her version of the sign is clapping, but she understands what it means and assigns meaning, which is the key I think!
  • She also understands a lot! Daily I am amazed at how much she understands. Today I was letting her play with some Lilleigh-friendly apps on my iPhone (to keep her from falling asleep after swimming lessons). The app turned off, so I told her if she handed the phone back to me, I'd fix it. She handed the phone to me immediately. Amazing. Love that.
  • Nursing once before bed.
  • Gives kisses and hugs.
  • Loves to be outside playing! Stroller, wagon, water table, you name it!
  • Dislikes the pool... hoping we will have a new report next week! Last summer you may remember she was the swimming lessons super star, but not so much anymore! Today she just cried and kept trying to get out of the pool. Hopefully within a few lessons, she'll remember how much fun swimming can be! I should mention though that she loves our backyard baby pool!
  • Has taken on a second attachment object. Again, all on her own. A small pink bunny, who she calls "Baby."

We had Pappy come visit a few weeks ago.

As you can see, she did not like being up on the shoulders.

But she was super excited about the chair Pappy got her for the front yard! He got mommy and daddy chairs too!
Grammy also came to visit!

Earlier this month, we went to Houston for Anabelle's graduation from Kinkaid.
