Two Going on Twelve
pants or skirt (or both).
Lily has been taking her role as a "big girl" to heart. She is helpful with James. The other day as I was making lunch, James started to cry and before I could even react, Lily put her hand up and said "No I do it!"
She walked over, said "S'ok James *shhhh*" and put his plug in his mouth while she pat his head.
While waiting in line at the store, she dances and twirls to make him laugh.
I think we need to take her to the zoo more often, since she thinks giraffes say "RAWR", elephants say "a-choo" and roosters say "bawk-bawk-toodleloo"!
I want her to slow down and stop being such a little grown up; at the library last week, she wasn't dancing during toddler time, so I held her arms and made her move (marionette-like) to the song.
She looked up at me with serious eyes and said "Mama, stop it".
Hold up, shouldn't she wait until she's twelve to be embarrassed of me in public?
Sidenote: Yes, I am aware most of these pictures don't match what I'm describing, but they were the closest I could find :) Guess I need to carry my camera around in my back pocket all day and night too!
