We had such a great time of fellowship and Lily always seems to save her "firsts" for GA. We walked into get her up from one of her afternoon naps and didn't find her laying down, but instead SITTING UP with one of the biggest grins!Our first stop was to see Granny & Granddaddy (Michael's parents), where Lily made a "new best friend." I'm not so sure if the feelings are mutual on the other end though. Bandit, their white cat, had a 9 month fan club and got more attention than he ever desired I'm afraid. Lily definitely kept him well groomed as she would have chunks of white fur in her little hands every time she got a hold of him. She reminded me of Alf (remember that show)? Poor Bandit doesn't have a clue as to the torture that will be coming his way as soon as she can go on her own.
Driving with granddaddy on the plantation!Lily in her "kinni" that her Nonni actually bought for her before she was born. Sad to say, but this was a one time wear only b/c it's already too snug around her little hammies! Oh, and for those of you who saw her cool little activity pool in the previous post, we took that one back and this is pool # 2 (princess pool with a canopy). We really liked the first one, but a heads up for any of you who have considered buying it. In order to keep it inflated you have to leave your water running all the time. Of course that's just not feasible on a seminary budget, so we returned it and went with the princess castle. Nice and shaded with a canopy...for the royal highness!
Can't you tell that life is so hard and Miss Lily is just "suffering" out by the pool as she tries out her personal pool furniture that her Nonni surprised her with.
It was a blessing to be able to visit with my sweet sisters Emily, Carol, and Tara. This is the first time that our children have been able to get together and play, so they had such a great time.
My brother Clint and I have birthday's two weeks apart, so while we were home together as a family my mom threw an early birthday celebration dinner. Here are some family shots!
Lily loves her Uncle Clint and Aunt Sarah. Uncle Clint never fails to keep her entertained as he impresses her with all his dance moves...you're sooo cool Uncky Clint!
The best for last! This picture cracks me up...I've questioned before if I should really claim him! Just kidding Padre! My dad has always tried to claim that his granddaughters good looks are a resemblance of himself and that she should have been named in his honor. After I share with you the name he HIGHLY recommended, we thought we would be ever soo generous to let some of you who are looking for a girls name, fight over it. My dad's name is Clinton and the suggested name was Clintet...just beautiful huh! So here you are, Lily's look alike...Papa!
