Lilyanna at age 1

Miss Lilyanna is a person.  She has opinions, thank you very much.

  At age 1, her favorite songs to have sung to her are "Frosty the Snowman" and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider".

  Her favorite album to listen to  is "Snacktime" by Bare Naked Ladies, and anything Veggie Tales.

  Favorite books are "Frosty the Snowman" and "Food for Thought".

  Favorite toys?  My canning lids.  Seriously.  HOURS of entertainment there.  She likes the jars, too, but Todd is a big meanie and wouldn't let her bang glass jars on the tile floor.  He put them on a high shelf that she can't reach.  Of course I can't reach them either...  

Her words to date are "Baby", "Up", "Uh-oh", "Mom".  She has sounds for "thank you", "all done", "bottle", "Benjamin", and "Dad", but not real words yet.  She LOVES shoes and babies!  These are her two favorite things in the world.  She also loves her brothers very much and all the fun things they do.  (Rides on their shoulders, and wrestling with her to name a couple.)

Lilyanna loves to dance and listen to music.  During every piano lesson, she's right there "helping" my students play.  They really appreciate it.  (Ok.  They don't.  But they put up with it because she is cute.  And then they say, "I messed up because Lilyanna was playing."  And I say, "No, you messed up because you only practiced this today 5 minutes before your lesson, now try it again and pay attention this time!")

It's hard to believe a year has gone by already.  I can't really remember what life was like before this little girl joined our family.  We sure are glad she's here!
