16 Months + A Heat Wave!

Dear Lila,

Happy 16th Month Birthday!  We just came back from visiting our friends and families in Boston.  This was your second trip back "home."  We brought you to a few of Mommy and Daddy's most favorite places--Santarpio's Pizza and The Border Cafe.  You loved Santarpio's almost as much as us.  While we were in Boston, there was a heat wave that rivaled the temps in India.  I'm going to quote my mother on this one "Tray, once yous step outside it's like bein' hit with a blow dryahhh in the face."  Luckily, Uncle Eddie has a pool and we spent most of our days cooling off there.

just being cute!

We spent 4th of July weekend in New Hampshire for a mini-reunion with all of Daddy's college friends and their babies.  There were 12 adults and 6 children (all under the age of 2).  You were the only girl!  It was like the baby version of the Bachelorette--you had a tub-date with Izek, a boat date with Aiden and Bruce, and a lunch date with Adam and Damon.  In the end, Bruce pulled a "risky maneuver" and stole your heart.  There are talks of a reunion show this coming February in the Bahamas!

You were so great on both ends of the flight.  You slept, you played peek-a-boo with the people behind us, you said 'Hi!" at least 100 times to every single person who looked at you, and you played with TV screen.  Great success!

A few funny moments that I want to remember from this age;
-When dogs barks you will say "dao! woo-woo-woo!"
-You think all birds are ducks
-You sing to yourself
-Your favorite place to hang out is in dog's crate
-You love putting your babies in a their stroller and pushing it around.  Then when your done,  you pick your babies up by their necks and throw them out of the stroller.  So nice!

My how big has she gotten. And even cuter by the day, if that is possible. They just grow up much, much too fast!
