Grandparents are the Best!

Last week we had a visit from Lillian's Grammy Elaine and Grampy Tom. Lillian charmed them with all her new words and her never ending desire to run around. In an effort to keep the girl busy we spent most of the weekend out and about. We all went to the Children's Discovery Museum in San Jose on Saturday. On Sunday we went to Shoreline Park to see the beautiful lake, all the ducks and wonderful sailboat teamed playground.

Nash enjoyed the visit as well, he got lots of attention and got to go out for lots of walks. Lillian even got in on the action by bringing Nash his Frisbee.

When Grammy is in town, Lillian spends lots of time at the playground. Here's a picture that Grampy took of Lillian and her Grammy going down the slide at the park.

Farmer Girl

This past weekend Lillian got a taste of life on the Farm. We made a visit to Hidden Villa, an educational farm in Los Altos Hills. Lillian had loads of fun practicing all her animal sounds. Here she is mooing at the cows. There were a few sheep in there as well for her to baa at.

From cows and sheep, we moved on to the free-range chicken area where she cock-a-doodle-doo'ed with the roosters. Chickens are pretty scary when there's no fence separating you from them. What's a baby to do, but try to run away? Of course that building she's backing into is the chicken coop, so right after this photo she got freaked out by more chickens coming out of the open gate. They had her surrounded!

Hugs from daddy help her forget all about the mean chickens.

Silly Babies

This past Friday we hosted another mom and baby lunch. Much fun was had by all. The babies had fun scattering Lillian's toys all over our house. The moms enjoyed the lunch and each other's company. After lunch was done all the babies headed outside to play. Like a moth to a flame they all headed to the neighbor's stoop to climb the three little steps. Miraculously I was able to get a few pictures that included 4 out of the 5 babies.

Having all those babies around gives Lillian a case of the sillies. Lillian decided it was a good idea to Samuel's belly as a bouncy toy. Thankfully Samuel is a good sport and doesn't seem to mind the bouncing.
