First Official Time in Nursery

Today was Lilia's first official time in nursery. She cried and fell asleep on brother O's shoulder. She slept till the last hour. She had snack and played with the toys. When I picked her up she cried because she saw me. She was very happy to see me. I missed her a lot! She is such a little lady. I can not believe she is 18 months old and going to nursery.

Sharing a Plum with Mommy

Lilia loves plums. Sharing is the problem. Yesterday she did not finish so I got the left overs. Yummy! I get the seed before she gets to it.

Back to Sleep

Lilia woke up from her short nap crying. She fell back to sleep laying across my chest. It was nice to hold her while sleeping. She is my little angel.


We had book group and it was great. We talked and had yummy food. Her husband made the salsa and it was great. The cupcakes were light and melted in our mouths. I think she called them Australian Butterfly cupcakes. Susan was a great host! We had a great time. Thanks!

Brushing Lil's Teeth

Lil loves brushing her teeth but only if she gets to do it. I help at the start and then let her finish. We have been brushing her teeth since her first one.

A Mother for Choco by Keiko Kasza

This is a great story. It does not say the word adoption but teaches the principle. We all have different spirits, look different and all need a family.

Things That Go

Note to self: Find the children's books on sale and let Lilia read while Mommy shops! She was so happy reading in the cart. I did not find the book till the very end of our shopping trip.

She was very tired and fell asleep reading.

Ducky Bathroom Before and After

We are getting tile in all our bathrooms! Yeah! Here is the Ducky Bathroom:
The Sims did a great job.
Lilia helped him with the spacers between the tiles. She stayed out of the way, mostly.
The shower curtain is new.
We are so happy with the new floors in our bathrooms!

I love the work done so much that here is their website:

Bathing Beauty

I always forget to take pictures when we are at the pool. We have been going with a friend and it has been great! Lilia loves to swim and play in the water! One more thing, we wear sun block! 70 spf to be exact. I get cute freckles and Lilia gets tan. The two pictures are of her waiting to go into the pool area. I hope to have pictures of us tomorrow.

Strict Obedience, No Feet on the Table!

Lilia had her fill of dinner and decided her feet needed to participate. She had one foot on the table and we told her to put her foot down and she put both up. We were laughing inside. She is such a cutie! We moved her plate because she was trying to move it to the floor.

I printed these yummy cupcakes.  I know Lilia is not old enough yet but I think they are so cute!

These is my Words

I just finished reading this book. I loved it. Nancy E. Turner did a great job. Wow, I laughed, cried and was amazed.

Playdate with a Friend

She pushed this grocery cart all over the place. 

Lilia loved this riding toy.  She did not go far but loved steering, playing with the "phone" and opening the door and closing the door.

Lilia ventured over to the climbing was on her own.  I sent this picture to Daddy and he wanted to know how high she was.  He was a little concerned but thought it was great.  She is over a mat and my friend was standing near. 
Lilia and I went to this great playtown and had a great time. We met friends there. She loved the shopping carts, fire truck, climbing on things, slide and the rock wall. We had a great time and I had a coupon so it was cheaper to play.

I made pizza tonight. I used the bread dough in the fridge. It is 70% wheat and the chicken pesto over powered the wheat. Lilia and Daddy loved the pizza. It was really good. The hardest part was getting it on to the cooking stone in the oven.

I have been waiting...

Wow! I got Kroger coupons in the mail, "giving you savings on the things you like to buy"! I am so excited. I actually can use these coupons! Thanks Kroger!

Babysitting a 7 Month Girl

Lilia and I watched a 7 month little girl this morning. They played together and were really nice to each other. Lilia was even sharing her toys and kept her within sight. They both got tired at same time and I got both of them down for a nap. Yeah! It was an adventure! The picture is of me reading a story before nap time.

Watering the Tree

Daddy took Lilia outside. Oh, she was happy! I suggested they water the tree. It is really hot here! Lilia had a great time watering the tree, the rocks and herself! She loves her Daddy!

Nap Time

She is tired! 11:45 am till 3:30 pm! That is a long nap!

17 Months

Lilia is 17 months! We were out of town when she turned 17 months. She is wearing the shirt we purchased. It says on the front, "Adoption It's About Love". We love our birth mom and her family so much. We visited with her while we were out of town. We are so happy being parents and love Lilia so much!
