Busy days

Life sure gets in the way of blogging. : ) We have been having fun, fun, fun. Last Thursday we had a playgroup at our house- I didn't get very many pictures but hope to at the next one. Here's what I have:

Josie enjoying a donut

Payton on her shopping spree!

Roxy's hoping Lila doesn't want her chair back 'cuz she's not wanting to give it up!

Roxy and Lila playing ring around the rosy!
On Saturday we went with some friends to the library. Again, not many pictures as I was busy chasing Miss Lila around- she didn't want to sit still!

Sammi, Lila, Olivia and Ashley- missed getting a pic of Riley!

Hey Olivia- I'm ready to get out of here- want to come with me?

On Tuesday we went to PT and Lila showed off her skills walking unassisted down the hall with Miss Carla.

After we got home from PT Lila refused to take a nap- I literally tried everything I could think of for 2 hours to get her to go to sleep. I finally gave up, brought her downstairs, and of course she fell asleep on the floor. Kids!

We are so excited that Miss Lila is walking.

We are, however, very concerned about the way she's walking. Her left foot turns in a lot.(Check out Lila's left foot in the picture of her and Roxy playing Ring around the Rosie- you can really see it there) Our PT thinks it might be a hip problem- we are taking her to a specialist on Long Island at the end of the month- hopefully we will get some answers then. That might be the way she will always walk, and if so, that's fine. We just want to make sure that we do everything possible to get her all the help she needs. We'll see.

This morning was Lila's first experience with Meals on Wheels. She didn't say much about it but I have to assume she loved it. : ) I just love the smiles she puts on people's faces.

We leave tomorrow for New York for a graduation party and get-togethers with Nick's family. It should be a good time. Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!




  1. So exciting to see her walking! The girls are all getting so big and looking so grown up.

    Have a great weekend and I hope you get to see the fireworks. Love you!

  2. Awesome on the walking Lila Lou! :) Is she putting her foot like that to stabilize herself? It is hard to tell in the pic. Otherwise it really looks like a weak ankle thing ... lots of times our kids do that with their ankles, meaning they need ankle support of some type.

  3. Yay, she's walking!

    Have a great time this weekend.

    Happy 4th!

  4. That's great news! It's a joy to see these photos and hear your words. Looking forward to updates after your visit to Long Island.

  5. YAY LILA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maybe Bethany is right and it's a weak ankle. Just get her some basketball shoes and she'll be good to go!!! JK

    I really like your new floors! Very nice!

    Love you!

  6. I LOVE seeing Miss Lila walking! Yay! We had a great time at the playdate and at the library--we won't be able to do the big playdates again until ESY is over, but hopefully we can get Lila and Sammi together on some weekends...?

  7. I gave you an award today on my blog. You and Miss Lila deserve some props!

  8. Yeah on walking!!! I can't wait for Sydney to walk!!
