(i have her 20 month post ready – just need to finish the pictures from the other day…maybe tomorrow)…

Lia’s independence streak is starting to show. I don’t remember it this early with Noah but alas…she wants to do everything herself. I first noticed it with feeding (she will not let you feed her…period. She has to do it herself). And just recently I found her like this:

Pantless for a good part of the day because she couldn’t figure it out nor would she let us help in any way. Not even to turn the pants around to help her put them on the right direction.

I found her in her crib this AM with both legs in one pant leg (and mad as a hornet about it..). I also find her putting her socks on which she’s actually quite good at (although she’s better at taking them off.)

She can do her jacket, hat, and shirt (if you pull it over her head first). She also likes to brush her teeth on her own (and just recently – potty on her own – more on that later).

Anyways, I can see we’re going to have our hands full with her (perhaps not literally..if she’s so independent and all…)

(as it goes in fits and spurts, I manage to find one night a month to catch up on things so here goes a glut of picture heavy post for posterity…)

We had a bunch of snow the last few days and Noah’s just at that age where he’ll spend hours outside shoveling, building forts and sledding. This time DH took him over to the big hill in our neighborhood (the back half of the dam) and had some fun. On their way back, he leashed up the dog to the sled and wanted to see if she could do it.

Macie slept well that night!!

Today I was in charge of both kiddos while DH was out in the garage building shelves (new house and we still somehow have a project list a mile long…) and at one point I lost track of Lia. Next thing I hear is her little feet padding back and forth in the kitchen and then her giggling. I walk over to find her emptying a tissue box one by one and putting them in the trash can. I managed to catch her on her last pass (last tissue)

I did wash her hands after that I promise:)

So as I mentioned before we had a pretty sick Easter. We’d planned to spend it in PA with my family but the norovirus had a different plan. We headed home Saturday night instead of staying thru Sunday afternoon. That meant that the Easter bunny had to be redirected again (we already told Noah that we’d communicated to him that we were at Memaw and Papas house…). In the redirection, he was a bit late Easter morning:) It was lunch time before he finally got his act together and hid the baskets.

Thankfully, this is the first year that Noah really understood so he didn’t care if it was first thing in the AM or later in the afternoon.

I thought I’d share the video so Memaw and Papa could see since they essentially supplied the Easter bunny with the loot:)

I realize that we have so few videos of Lia. At this point we had hours upon hours of Noah cooing, gahing and sleeping recorded. I guess that’s the second kid syndrome.

Here she’s trying out her baby einstein chair for the first few times. She was sooo excited when I stuck her in and she saw all the toys right at her level. I guess it gets boring in that bouncer:)
