I cried for a good hour this morning. The only upside being that I didn't take Lily to see them today because we were running late. But now I have to explain the empty space in our carport where the birds are supposed to be.

The second card I used paper from the new "Glitter Stack" I got on clearance at Joanns (wohoo!). I like shiny! : ) The pink flowers on the first layer are textured and the stamp is embossed with a new embossing powder I got at a garage sale (new!) for 50 cents! I love a good baragain that's for sure.

L: Knock, Knock
M: Who's there?
L: Poop. (Laughs hysterically)
M: How did poop get on your forehead (apparently I should have been supervising this one!)
L: The poop came out and then it went and pooped on my forehead. **Really??**
L: Spongebob Poops.
M: How do you know?
L: He has a butt.
L: The unicorn went down to the buggy water and he pooped hisself.
This weekend Lily is with her dad and I am finally getting started on her "First Year" Scrapbook. Four pages down...only 22 or more to go (two pages per month)...yikes! And that's just year one! I think that they will start to go more quickly as I do more of them though. I don't think I am going to do a whole separate album for each year but probably combine the next two years into one- since there are some months I am missing photos from. I'm just glad that I finally am getting started...I made some cards today too...pictures tomorrow. I'm too tired tonight- going to bed!

I saw a book at Thirdplace Books someone had written all about the funny things their kid said over the years..what do you know? Apparently I'm not the only one with a quotable kid.
Tonight, as I was putting Lily to sleep, a tune I made up using her name- kind of a lullaby that I used to sing when she was really little- just came into my head. I started singing it and it was like she remembered- or it felt familiar and she just relaxed. When I was done she asked me to sing it again- so I did.

Oh honey, I guarantee there are many more stores I like better than Albertson's. Seriously.
Lily: Look at the Hockey game Mommy! (Pointing to a basebell field)
There is a starling (?) nest in our carport not too high up that Lily and I have been watching carefully. The momma and daddy bird take turns sitting in the nest- so everytime we walk by I pick her up to get a good look. She says "Oh I just love those birds!" It is so nice to appreciate the little things with her- see the world from her perspective. At the park there were a bunch of birds flying really low to the ground. Since it was twilight there were lots of bugs so I think the birds were eating. They were flying very close to us though and Lily's eyes were lit up in wonder. She said she thought it was the same mommy and daddy bird from our apartment and they just might be... you never know.

By the way- the clean laundry- Since I brought it up from the dryer on Sunday-I can't even think about going to reach for anything in the basket lest I mess up her carefully crafted seat. I think I have enough underwear to last me through the week- or else I'll have to sneak a pair when she falls asleep. Pick your battles I tell ya.
This hair <--- her teacher did-she liked it until she got in the car seat and couldn't put her head against the back of the seat.

Heard on the Fort Warden Trip:
Lily:Mommy you're driving too slow! Mommy you're driving too fast!
Lily: Mr. Ladybug, do you want to climb on my ball? Mr. Ladybug are you listening to me?
Lily: I can't believe I live here!
Mommy: Lily, please do not lick...insert here one of the following: the window, the ball, the chair, the seatbelt, my cousin (I swear I said all of these- it's her new obsession, licking things ewww.)
And a cute conversation we had when we saw a deer in someone's yard :
Lily: Where's her baby?
Mommy: I don't know.
Lily: Maybe he's lost.
Mommy: Oh I don't think he's lost- he's here somewhere.
Lily: Maybe the baby turned into the Momma.
Lily: When I grow up I am going to turn into you Mommy.
Oh Lily-you will be so much more! You will be wonderful- the one and only you!

Lily and I on the Deception Pass Lookout.
