Still "wonky" a lot of words and some pee...hehehe

I am still missing the entire side navigation on the blog... I started to look around and attempt to fix it last night but got distracted with changing the background image. Then it was time to log into the online Bible study that I am doing... Soooooooooo... I have yet to get it sorted. I thought I knew what it was but now, I'm not so sure. I guess I can delete it and start over.. not the blog just the side navigation.

Onto other news.... Lillian did wonderfully on the potty yesterday... she went a total of 9 times and only one tiny little accident. I was taking her to go every 30 minutes though. She did wear a diaper at nap time and it was wet when she woke up. So, she gets the concept. Today, wasn't so great but that was entirely my fault. We were running all day and to be honest, I am not ready to brave the public restroom with a toddler. The thought of it totally grosses me out. I can just imagine the things that she may try to touch... that's when it would be good to have octopus arms. LOL

She has been a little "out of sorts" for the last week or so. Restless at nap time and some at bedtime. Not eating well, hitting herself in the head/face. Not allowing me to vacuum, and irritable... in the past when she has acted this way it's b/c she has an ear infection. I typically watch her and wait. (and take her temperature) She ran a low grade temp one day. So, it's either her 2 year molars or... a growth spurt!

Speaking of a growth spurt... She has really started to put small sentences together...

"Cun bear sit on my chair?"
"Un dadda at work?"
"Its a big doo doo" (nice one huh? lol)

She is growing so quickly. I feel so Blessed that I have been able to witness and watch her grow through these years. I have Faith that God will align everything the way that it is supposed to be. :D

I know it's been forever since my last post. Some of the formatting on the blog has gone "screwy" and I have found it annoying to post updates to be quite honest. The pictures don't post where I want them to and etc. Now, I do have the knowledge on how to fix it all. I have just lacked the time.

I recently was "re" hired by the corporation that I resigned from to be with Lillian after her birth.. anyway, I was hired for a temporary work from home position. How AWESOME is that? Seriously, I have been in awe over this. It's another amazing testimony for our family. Eventually, I will be looking to return to work full-time once Lillian is in preschool. That could be as early as this coming summer! eeekk! I have some strong mixed emotions about this. I am confident that God will guide our direction. I have been seeking him about this for a long time... hence the testimony about the temporary work from home position.

I took Lillian for her 2 year well baby check up. She was 35 and 3/4 inches tall! (90th%) She has typically been in the 70th% so she has really SHOT up! She weighed in at 24lbs. (20th%) Technically under weight. But, her Dr. said that she wasn't overly concerned about it. But to keep her on Whole milk. Her head circumference came in at 49cm. (90th%... exactly where it has always been) Her Dr. was very please with her progress.

I do believe that Lillian is going through a bit of a growth spurt right now. She is eating like crazy (she may no longer be underweight...lol) She did NOT nap well today. She is toooo busy to sleep. She repeats so many of the things that we say and I think that her favorite phrase right now is "What's that?" She wants to pick out her snacks from the top cabinet and I have caught her trying to climb the cabinets! I'm sure that it will not be long before she begins pulling chairs over to reach what she is after. :)

She starts an art class in a couple of weeks. Well, I hope to get the blog straight again soon...
