Lily's oral antics have changed in the last few days from sucking on everything to licking everything. She'll lock something in her sights and army crawl to it with her tongue out, ready for a taste. She's fascinated by it and sticks it in and out of her mouth like a little lizard. Here's a collage from earlier today. I know all the pictures look the same, but I was trying to demonstrate just how frequently it hangs out of her mouth...which is a lot.
(my favorites are the middle bottom and the right center)
Let's just hope this doesn't last into high school.
I watched it once and laughed out loud all by myself. Then I made Cole watch it with me, and we both laughed out loud together. You must watch!
2. This talk by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf that he gave at the General Relief Society broadcast for our church. Here's a quote:
Sisters, wherever you are, whatever the circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you, with an infinite love.
I could feel Pres. Uchtdorf's love and Heavenly Father's love for me and for all the women around me. I cannot wait until General Conference this weekend!
Lily and I are not feelin' so hot today. A slight cold for me and side effects of a flu shot for Lily mean there's been lots of crying from Lily, lots of rocking from me; lots of sleeping from Lily (7:30 pm-7 am completely uninterrupted. A-mazing!) and lots of movie-watching from me--the new Jane Eyre and X-Men: First Class. I have a bit of a Michael Fassbender crush at the moment.
Lots of liquids and lots of cuddling are just what the doctor ordered, I think. In the meantime, here's a recent picture of my sixmonth old. I just can't believe she's six months already. A milestone post will be coming soon.
On Labor Day we headed up to Austin with family. We people-watched, strolled in and out of the fun shops, and sampled some of SoCo's finest food -Enoteca Vespaio and Hey Cupcake! The wait for South Congress Cafe was too long and Flip Happy Crepes was closed, but at least we have an excuse to go again. We visited the Capitol, but missed the LBJ Library. I loved the vibe there and can't wait to go back!
