Lily is such a little hider…

since the first time, just after she could crawl, when she tucked herself in a hidden spot behind the rocker in her room.  She was SILENT for over 10 minutes… as I was screaming her name and searching in places like, in the dishwasher and  under the toilet lid,  after looking in all the normal places.  When I checked behind that chair for the THIRD time and found her… I collapsed on the floor, shaking violently and crying.  She had the biggest grin on her face I had ever seen.

Now,  she’ll sit in dark closets or corners for extended periods of time for us to come looking for her.  Her latest favorite spot is laying behind one of the big couch cushions.

Here is what she was doing while she waited…  NICE!

One day, she had gotten a little too quiet while I was cooking… so I walked back to her room and did a double take as I passed the guest bathroom.

This kid can’t sit through a 15 minute story time at the library … but she can be perfectly still and quiet for who knows how long waiting for me to notice that she’s hiding… interesting.

I love that she is a hider. And it really is amazing how still and quiet she can be when she is hiding. It'll be interesting to see what kind of hiding places she'll find as she gets older. She may really give you a scare one of these days!! (hopefully not though! :) )

Maybe if you take a big pillow to the library she will hide behind it quietly and listen to the story!

That's awesome.

I love the scrapbook page, too!

How did you make your pictures look like polaroids? Was it in livewriter?
