A Tent for Lilian

Yesterday afternoon I needed to unload a few groceries from the van and so as Lily played on the floor on her playmat I asked the boys to "take care of her." After a couple of trips in I peeked around the corner, making sure everything was okay in the den because it was a little quieter than normal...everyone seemed very content. While Ty had decided to do his own thing (he was not entertaining he sister as he was asked to do), Micah had decided that she needed a tent. I watched as this was "built" around her.

At first she was very amused as she lay under it one her back and watched the pillow teetering above her. Eventually she decided she would try to manuever herself out of the remaining holes. She seemed to be pretty entertained by Micah's "gift" to her.

Later she found the baby in the mirror and entertained herself with this.

And just a few more pictures of our precious baby girl!

Her latest trick is that she is trying to figure out the crawling thing. For about 4 weeks now she has been scooting like this:

bottom in the air, nose in the carpet.

But today she has continuously been rocking on all fours and sometimes getting up on her tip toes. At Tracey's house today she made her first big lunge forward. Does this count as a crawl? I don't know...but either way, she's changing and growing up way too fast!

Nathan's doing the same thing. Its hysterical - bottom goes high in the air, his toes lunge him forward, and he's just not quite sure what to do with his hands yet, so he ends up rolling onto his side. When he rolls back to his tummy, he's 6 inches closer to his goal. He's getting pretty good at this "croll" Its not really crawling.... :)

I can't believe she is starting to crawl. It always seems that the third grows faster than the first two. Love the tent Micah made for her!!

I cannot believe she is trying to crawl! I sure wish we were able to see each other's kids grow up in person, but since we can't, I love getting to see them on the blog! The snow pics are completely adorable, too. No snow here in Bham, which is fine with me. We're ready for spring! :)Love you!
