Lily is doing so well in school - it's so fun to see her acquire knowledge and enjoy going every day. She still loves to make people laugh - here she was showing me how she smiles without showing her teeth. She and Jackson started going to gymnastics and are having so much fun. Her favorite thing ever is to get tickled - especially if I say I will tickle her until she pees her pants.
Also in September I got the chance to go and visit Amanda to see her new house and paint a lot. A lot! Isaac and I flew over and left Adam to spoil Lily and Jackson (movies, a trip to the zoo, silly string, lots of candy and treats) for a long weekend. It was so fun to be with the Nays! After being around Amanda for a few days I feel like I can do anything - (small) home improvement projects; control my budget better; make meals that my whole family will eat; and of course be a better and more sensitive mom.
Speaking of great days....Isaac had his first birthday! Since he loves dirt so much I wanted to make the dirt pudding cups with oreos and gummy worms. He wasn't feeling too good the day of his birthday and so we did it the next day. Lily and Jackson (and Carly and Carson, who were here for a sleepover) thought they were pretty awesome but Isaac ended up crying - we found out he had an ear infection a few days later :(.
