I just have to laugh...

when stuff like this happens.

I was making banana pudding to take over to my parents' house for dinner with my cousin Kris and his wife, Denise. I guess I set the cool whip lid within Lily's reach accidentally and fortunately for her, it had some stuck to it... LOTS actually. I should have noticed that she had stopped saying Da-da-da-da-da. Call me a bad mom for instead of taking it from her-- running to get the camera... but it was just too cute. I see pie-eating contests in her future!

My friend, Laura's, blog reminded me of this. On days like today, when I'm busy and Jeff's been gone for 3 days... and there are so many things that I need to do and want to do that seem so important today... I need to remember that this time is a gift and enjoy every moment with this PRECIOUS baby.

That's too cute! She is just the cutest little thing. I can't believe she still goes in the Bumbo! It seems like you are getting more months of use out of it than we did. :)

What a cutie! That has to be the cutest picture! I'm constantly having to remind myself to lighten up about some things Nathan gets into and just let him explore and discover things...even if it makes a big mess. :-)

She is so precious. I love her happy eyes and smile even with whip cream. I am so glad that you realize that you need to stop and enjoy this gift from God. By the way, the banana pudding was delicious. Nana
