A little helper for the holidays

Lily finishing off my rice bowl at Rumbi's :)

The closer that it gets to the holidays ... it seems the busier it gets!

We are only a month away from a long awaited event .... NURSERY! I really cannot wait. Sometimes I am sad when I think about my baby growing up so fast. But then I think of trying to contain my no longer baby in Sunday School and Relief Society ... not so sad anymore!

Still our little girl is growing up fast. This month I have been putting away a lot of our baby things ... the baby bath tub ... bouncer .... boppy .... all things things she has long outgrown.

One thing that I am quiet happy about is that Lily is quite the helper. She is very good at moving the laundry from the washer to the dry (sometimes a granola bar makes it in there, too, so I have to watch closely :). She also grabs a cleaning rag and wipes up her spills on the floor occasional ... she started doing this all by herself! She is also good at putting laundry in the hamper and garbage (and sometimes not garbage) in the garbage can. What a good helper!

Plus her vocab is expanding. She now says happy, IHOP, and moon.

Look at you, following the rules. Analee will be 18 months old in four days, yet she's been attending nursery since she was about 14 months old. It helps that Grandma is one of the nursery leaders. But seriously ... who came up with the 18 months old rule? Kids simply cannot be contained in SS and RS for that long!

So fun to see your blog! I don't know if I ever would have found it if you hadn't made a comment on mine. Thanks! I can't believe how big Lily is! I don't know if I've ever seen her! She is so cute! Glad you are doing well!

Lily is just adorable! I've been filling in for nursery when they've been short-handed and those children are so sweet. I can't wait to be a mommy myself...only 3 1/2 months to go!

Good helper indeed :) I'm excited to see you tomorrow!
