Just another afternoon swim...

Going for an afternoon swim with Josh after nap time has become part of our daily routine.  It has pushed dinner and bedtime back a little bit, but it's totally worth it to see our happy girl splashing around in the water!

Lily's new "big girl" room!

Lily's big girl room is almost complete! We still have her crib in there (not sure when we're going to try and make that transition), but other than that it's done and super cute! She loves to snuggle in her bed at night to read stories, but it perfectly happy to get in her crib to sleep :)

We still haven't decided on a name for her new giraffe...any ideas??!!

Here is a peek at the nursery, which is still a work in progress.  Josh did an awesome job painting it (I'll admit, I was a little worried)!

Happy Father's Day!

We had a wonderful Father's Day weekend. Josh was on-call, but didn't get called in once for the first time in months!

Lily and Josh had a special father/daughter date Friday night. They started at Monkey Joes, pigged out on pizza and cinnamon bread and finished the night at Target to pick up some milk and a new toy fire truck.

Saturday morning Lily helped me make crepes from breakfast. After breakfast, they headed to the gym for a quick workout, then off the the pool for some fun. I got lots done around the house and picked up Chick-fil-a to take down to them at the clubhouse. After nap, we all headed to the mall for some shopping and dinner.

Lily surprised Josh with his Father's Day gifts early Sunday morning. She made him a beautiful arrangement of construction paper hand cutouts that she spent lots of time coloring and decorating with her favorite Dora stickers. I put together a DVD full of pictures of Lily and Josh throughout the past two years.  They've had lots of fun times together!  We also picked up a special treat, Krispy Kreme! Then we headed out to see Toy Story 3. It was such a great movie and Lily actually made it through the whole thing!

It was a great weekend full of wonderful memories!

Lily the FISH!

Lily is a little fish in the pool.  Josh has been working with her a lot in the pool at our gym.  They usually go about 4 times a week.  She has come a long way in a really short period of time.  I'm pretty sure she'll be swimming all by herself by the end of the summer!

Park Fun!

We've been spending lots of time at the park these days. Lily has become pretty self-sufficient on a play ground, which has been nice. I'm not sure I would be able to climb around with her at this point. She has so much energy, and the park is the perfect place to get it all out and insure a nice LONG nap!

She loves climbing and sliding right now. Not too interested in the swings anymore. She also has a new obsession with sticks and rocks. Any picture where she looks mad or upset is probably a result of me or Josh telling her to "drop the stick/rock" for the hundredth time!
