Lily's First Christmas - 2008

These pictures are from Christmas Eve at Grandma & Grandpa Lapair's house. This of course is Lily's first Christmas with us. She loved opening gifts, she even wanted to open her sisters gifts. Emily let Lily help her with some of her gifts. 

At the top of Grandpa's Christmas tree is an animated angel. Lily didn't notice it for quite a while but once she noticed it she was fascinated by it. We are sure she thought it was real. She was saying good-bye to it as we left. We lifted her up to get close but she didn't like that at all....too close!

Christmas morning the girls received a new wagon which they loved. As you can see by the pictures, it was a big hit with all the kids. Good thing they could all fit in.....even a place for the dog! If you look behind Micah you see a little space where the dog is sitting.

Happy 7th Birthday Emily!

On November 28th Emily turned 7! We celebrated her birthday last weekend because two of her older brothers just bought houses and were in the process of moving in on her actual birthday. Emily continues to be a tremendous blessing. She is being a very good big sister. She is learning patience, she's teaching her sister things, she watches over her to protect her etc. Thank God for our daughter Emily!

Mom's Little Helper

Lily loves to help her mommy. Today she was helping to fold laundry. She actually folded this dish towel all by herself. Lily is constantly saying..."Help you?". It's a blessing to see such a good heart in such a little child. We celebrated her sister Emily's 7th birthday on the weekend and I had to set up chairs and tables etc. to get ready for the party. Lily of course, had to help daddy carry in the tables and chairs. It takes twice the time to do things with a little one holding on to everything.....helping.

We have had Lily now for over three months. Her vocabulary continues to grow and she continues to adjust quite well. We just can't seem to get her hair to grow. The only part that wants to grow is the hair on top of her head! Her hair on the sides and back is still the same length it was when we first got does that happen?
