Lia is now just shy of 18 months and is not just walking but RUNNING. And she is fast. She is also talking up a storm. She has a bunch of words, but her favorites are Mommy, Daddy, Micah, Pickle (one of the dogs), Cheese, Shoes, Elmo, and Gabba. She is also starting to put words together. Just today she told her brother to, "GO AWAY!" It was a heart-warming moment, indeed.
We recently celebrated LIA DAY! The first anniversary of the day we met our sweet girl. We celebrated with a special dinner and cupcakes, along with a new doll stroller (that the kids fight over), and tickets to Yo Gabba Gabba (coming soon!).
We finished the night with a Family Dance Party, which of course made me cry.
|Seeing Lia and her dad dancing to her "adoption song," pretty much put me over the edge.|
|This might be one of my favorite pictures of the two of them.|
He started his summer by knocking out his two front teeth on Memorial Day. That was awesome. Okay, not really. It was SCARY, but Micah handled it way better than I did. He apparently pulled them out clean while going down a small water slide at the pool. You do not want more details than that. Trust. But, all is well and his big teeth will come back in about 3 years. We have plenty of time to get used to this smile...
