As for what Lily is up to these days - She can say her ABC's and count to 20 on her own. She loves singing Patty Cake, Happy Birthday and I'm a little teapot. She's become our own little parrot, mimicking everything we say, including calling Ian "babe" like I do. She's talking like crazy and saying things like "Look at that, Mama!", "Where'd daddy go?" , "No way, Jose" and her newest one "I need help, Mama" which I have been trying to get her to say instead of whining and crying when she gets frustrated.
**Pictures of our trip will follow shortly.
