This post is mainly for the grandparents and relatives:
Lilly is growing into a very independent young girl. Here are the things she has done in the last few days that have brought her "growing up" to my attention:
*she poured her own drink (got out the cup and the juice from the refrigerator by herself)
* poured cereal into her own bowl
* she spread peanut butter and jelly on her bread and made herself a sandwich
* came downstairs 2 mornings in a row all dressed with her hair brushed and in her opinion - fixed!
* and today she was supposed to be having quiet time in her room - she decided that she was tired and needed to take a nap instead of play, so she put on a pull-up (we're still not potty trained while sleeping) and a t-shirt and put herself to sleep.
All this to say - she is growing up and I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad about that.
