Cooling Off!

This is a recent favorite thing to do of Lilly's when she goes outside with Millie. For some reason, perhaps the heat, she can't help but take her shoes off, stand or sit in Millie's water bowl, and then pour it out after she's done. Kinda cute, kinda yucky!

Day at the Zoo!

We went to the Albuquerque Zoo with Steven's work a few weeks ago. We had a blast and Lilly really enjoyed it. Here she is just relaxing so Dad can pull her around the park! Silly girl!
Lilly and Daddy! Nice shot of the polar bears in the background!

I thought this was a cute pose she took to get a better look at the zebras.

I never get enough pictures taken of just me and Lilly cause I'm the one that's usually behind the camara so any chance I get to pose with my girl I take!

Birthday Pictures...Finally!

Here is the cake I made for Lilly. It's the first time I've made a cake this creative! Luckily I had help from Bonnie so it turned out pretty good! Hopefully you can tell what it is! Thanks to everyone who was involved in Lilly's birthday! It was wonderful!
Everyone wanted to help with the presents!

Isn't Steven cute helping Lilly with her presents?! Cute Daddy!

Time to make a wish and blow out the candles!

Lilly was pretty excited with everyone watching her!

We thought it would be easier to use a cupcake for blowing out 2 candles rather than a whole cake!

Some of the dads just hanging out, not looking at the camara of course!

Here are some of Lilly's friends playing in her new sandbox from Mommy and Daddy!

Lilly's 2nd Birthday!

So our little Lilly is now a whopping 2 years old! I can't believe how big she is getting! Now I understand what my parents are talking about when they say "..it seemed like just yesterday I was holding you in the hospital..." I know 2 years isn't a super long time, but it really does feel like I just had Lilly yesterday! Anyway, I have some cute pictures from her little party she had but my dear hubby has the camara with him in Salt Lake City, which has all the pictures on it. He is there for his Grandma May's funeral. She passed away on Friday and was a dear, sweet lady. I wish I could be there with him but on account of the bump in my stomach, it is not in my best interest to fly! I will post some pictures in the next couple of days...hopefullly. My quick little sister-in-law put the pictures she took at the party up right away! Good job Brianna! If you can't wait for my slow butt, her blog is ourfairytaleending.blogspot.com.

A New Year!

I think one of my resolutions this year should be to keep up with my blog! I got really excited to start it and then I really slacked on keeping up with it. New year, new goals right? The May family is doing well. Steven is enjoying his now full-time job with Northwestern Mutual, especially since he is now graduated! Yea! I am still going to school, just a couple of classes. Lilly is doing great and growing so fast! She's adorable and we love spending time with her and seeing her learn new things. She knows some animal noises when we ask her, such as "What does a puppy say?" She then says, "Woof, woof," and then goes along with a few other animals. Steven thought it would be funny to teach her what Mommy says, which, according to him, is "No, no." She knows that one just as well as the animal noises that she does. He likes to show people the "cute" thing he taught her.
