Friday, February 13, 2009 update!

Today is February 13th,2009 and I am finally getting a moment to update you on Lily and our homecoming...I really didn't think I'd be running as much or as fast as I am with these wee ones!

Eli is crawling and pulling up, so he is really keeping us hoppin'. As for Lily Ping, she is doing great! It's probably a good think that I have been too busy to keep up with her blog, because we have gone through some transitions and she is awesome ! Bedtime was a difficult time, now it is is much, much smoother. This is due to a very regid routine, which includes a warm bath, a soothing massage, a nice comforting bottle and then to bed. She hardly fusses, where is that wood to knock on..., and is seems to be ready for the quiet of bedtime. Her language skills are coming along,too. She is very proficient at Ah-Choo, UP, uh-oh and is trying her tongue and lips with down, cup, cat, tiger, all gone, peek a boo. She does a lot of chattering and babbling that we don't understand,too. She is very active, loves, loves games, dances to all kinds of music, including ItsyBitsy Spider, which is one of her favorites.

Health-wise, all tests have are normal, she has gained 2 pounds in the last month and we have more routine hearing and vision tests scheduled.

So, how does she like Eli???Well, basically she ignores him most of the time, although he does his very best to charm her. She moans if he takes her toy, of course, and she generously provides him with toys to play with in his high chair. If he drops something, she will often fetch it. Occassionally, she pushes his hand off of something she has deemed her own. All in all, they are doing great! She imitates him in sounds and language, so when he starts to talk, she will probably take off with words,too. We are introducing her to more kids now, so that will probably help with language development,too.

For now, that is quick are a few pics to show more of the story.
