Hey girl, what's shakin'???



That is Lia's new favorite saying!!
Seriously!
She has said it all day today and we laugh hysterically every time she says it!
She has also been saying, " I totally rock"
Too funny!!!

Our weekend:

This weekend we went to the park
 
Played on the bumpy fun slide

 
 
The curb became a balance beam


 
And then we headed to DQ!!


 
Hurray for a long holiday weekend!

This is what really happens:

with our active 3 year old little girl 
- in church 
- on Sundays.
We call it our Sunday Adventure!!

We keep busy with snacks...
 
Sing and dance on a stage.
AND attempt to play a tune on the piano. 
 
Read the suggested religious story books Bubble Guppies w/ fun stickers...

 
Put on sunglasses: do do do  
 
 
And eventually say a prayer or two.
 
And all this before church even begins!!!
 
She is learning a lot. A lot about God, inside voices, whispering, patience and self control. 
 
We love this last picture. She is so still and angelic like - its like she gets it.
If only for a few minutes!!!
 
Happy Sunday !

Our little Dr Lia

To cute not to share !! 
Lia loves playing with glasses. She usually says "aw cute Lia's not blind , she just needs glasses. Thanks Dr Lia!" 
Oh the things she learns from TV - Sometimes she thinks shes a doctor. Thanks Team Umizoomi and  Dr Bot 
At least she's not afraid at the doctors office!!

Happy Mothers Day !!

It was a relaxing Mothers Day.
We are so lucky to live so close to both of our moms.
So we got to visit with them both today.
Happy Mothers Day Mom/Oma and Mom/Grandma
Then we decided to forgo the planned at home dinner and ventured out for Mexican.
A little margarita never hurt anyone, right!?
 
I told Lia tonight, that this was the best Mothers Day ever. 
Because she is getting older and we are having so much fun with her. She is
communicating so well and has LOTS to say...till midnight last night to be exact!! 
But she is still little enough to let us rock her before bed, sits on our lap and reads books with us and
welcomes our hugs and kisses anytime/anywhere! Each day is a reminder that she is growing up-
too fast.
 
This week we had her 3 year check up:
Lia is now 30 lbs( 30%) and is 38 1/2 inches tall (85%)
When we brought her home she was a peanut. Barely 15 lbs
You've come a long way ..baby!!
 
We made it to a "flowery garden"
We ran through a "forest", rode a "cart" and threw coins in the fountain
And we got some really cool Mothers Day flowers.
 
Lia played with pirate cousins,
Captain Caitlin and  1st Mate Lexi!!
While watching her new fav: Bubble Guppies X marks the spot.
 
We had a fun and busy week and a great Sunday Mothers Day!
