Lillian's Bubble Bath

Lillian plays in the fountain in Phoenix

Arizona Girl

Last week we took Lillian on a trip to Phoenix to visit with the McGuire clan. Lillian had lots of fun hanging out with her Grammy and Paw Paw. She also got to see her Great Grandma Nora who was out visiting from New York and who she hasn't seen since last fall's visit to New York.

Of course once you have the whole family in one place, family portraits are inevitable.

Lillian is becoming very helpful, here she is trying to help her Grammy empty the dish washer.

We have way too many great pictures to post here, so we've put them in our Phoenix08 webalbum. Thanks Dad for taking so many pictures!

Cowgirl does brunch

Lillian loves cows so much that it was a given she was going to be something cow related for Halloween (we're reminded constantly that cows say, "moo."). So this year she's a cowgirl. Unfortunately she grew out of her boots, so she'll have to make due with the ones on her shirt.
We got invited to a baby Halloween brunch hosted by Lillian's friend baby Shannon from Strollerhikes. All the babies looked great in their costumes, and it was nice to get another opportunity to show them off aside from the big day. Here's Lillian sampling some juice with our hostess.

Funny computers

Lillian loves using the computer. She thinks it's hilarious.

Second Cousins

Today we had a very special visit with Lillian's second cousins Kyra and Kylie. Kristen's cousin Brooke and her husband Karl came for a brief visit after a family trip to the northern coast before heading back to their home in Tuscon. Lillian and Kylie's birthdays are only a few weeks apart, Kyra is a two years older.

As you can see, Lillian warmed up to the visitors immediately and made her self comfortable on Karl's lap so he could read her a book. We had a lovely breakfast and spent some quality time at the park. It's nice for Lillian to see second cousins even if the visit is brief. Hopefully we will see them all again very soon.
