Little Music Makers

Lily was enrolled in a 4-week class called Little Music Makers that met for a half hour on Thursday nights. It was kind of crazy, but she had fun.
Here is a pic and a short video of the chaos.

Aunt Lisa's Visit




I'm not sure what Lily's face is about in this pic


Mason loved to ride Lisa's scooter and Lily liked to chase them

Wisconsin State Fair

We visited the State Fair two weekends in a row, and did lots...


Of course Chris had to try this year's newest addition to "fair food"

I got my teeth whitened


Lily ate lots


And saw lots of pigs
(Aunt Lisa turned a blind-eye on the cruelty of the pigs)



some pigs were a little scary when they stuck out their snouts



Lily had an old-fashioned picture taken in a flapper dress




and she took her first pony ride

15 Months

Apologies for my lack of posting, I have a lot to catch up on...

silliness









Mason's always taking care of Lily



At the Gingerbread House in New Berlin




At 15 Months this is what Lily's up to...
Height: 30 inches
Weight: 20 pounds 5 ounces
Foods: Anything and everything, she especially loves shaved turkey breast
Development: Now that she has mastered walking, she tries to run (hilarious), she can't really do it...and has been talking a lot more. She dropped her night-time bottle out of the blue one day, so we went with it.
Babbles: Dada, Mama, Hi, Bye-Bye Bubble, Meow, Woof, Cat, Dog, Moo, Baby, Ball, she also roars like a lion now, in addition to barking like a dog and meowing like a cat
new this month: oh-wow, good-girl, gorilla, night-night (most of these are thanks to Aunt Roxane)
Teeth: Still just has the bottom 2 and top 2
Adventures: It's been another busy summer month - Lily went to the airport to pick-up Aunt Lisa, and has been to the State Fair tw weekends in a row and went to Renaissance Faire (stay tuned for pics). We've started taking her to a "Little Music Makers" class on Thursday nights, it's fun! (through Greendale Park & Rec of course)


Lily is still wearing 9 month clothes, size 5 shoes and her hair is growing...I swear.

Lily Meets Her Aunt Lisa!

Lily patiently waits
Lisa & Lily

Lisa, Angie and Grandpa


Out to dinner with the fam
Lily finally met her Aunt Lisa (Chris' sister) on Wednesday, when she arrived from Arizona. Tears were shed and Lily was as happy as can be to meet her Aunt, who she has heard so much about. Lisa had planned on visiting last summer, but unfortunately had to have a lot of surgeries due to a fall she took (2008 was not a good year for the Karczewski girls). She is here for the next 2 weeks, we are thrilled and have lots of things planned!

Starbucks Claims It's Youngest Victim



Wait, wait, wait...before you go nominating me for "The Worst Mom Ever" award - there was no coffee in this mini Starbucks cup. There was a sample of the Strawberry Banana Vivano Smoothie - and Lily loved it! I thought the cup was adorable and had to let her try it - she was hooked and drank the whole thing.

Painted Toe Nails



Call me crazy, but I painted my 14 month old's toe nails - they look sooooo cute!
I was inspired when I saw that Buggy's toe nails were painted on the last episode of Tori & Dean
