All dolled up

Today we finally got Lillian to wear a barrette in her hair by convincing her that she looks much prettier. Eric captured these cute shots of Lillian admiring her new look.

Budding Engineers

Last weekend we had Lillian's friend Jessie over for an evening of fun. There was lots of running around screeching and playing with Lillian's toys but after a while both girls honed in the best toy of all, the computer. The two of them worked together side by side trying to turn the computer on. Keyboards were pounded, mouses were clicked, and buttons were pushed. They never did figure it out, but they sure had fun trying.

Lillian and Klaus

This past weekend had the pleasure of a visit with our friends Ryan and Joanna and their baby Klaus. Last time they visited us he was just a little baby. Now he and Lillian are mature enough that they can actually play with each other.

Two budding intellectuals reading together.

How often do you see that kind of enthusiasm for takeout food?

And of course the pinnacle of all baby games, the tea party. We have a toy tea pot, and Lillian knows how to use it, but for some reason they're using toy bottles of shampoo and baby powder. I'm sure it makes sense to them.
