If you had one guess as to how Mike wanted to spend his first Father's Day, I guarantee 99.9% (Okay - who am I kidding - 100%) of you would guess correctly. Yup, Lillian took her Dad camping! I'd be a big fat liar if I said I wasn't nervous and I'd be a bigger liar if I said it was easy to get us on the road! But the first camping trip of the season is always a little rusty. We finally took off at 3pm Saturday afternoon and the only things I forgot to pack were Mike's Father's Day cards and gifts...duh!!!
Lily-Bird already seems to love all the things her daddy does!

What a memorable Memorial Day we had! Lillian was three weeks old last weekend and Mike & I felt it was time to introduce her to several friends who hadn't had the opportunity to meet her yet. We planned a big barbecue here at the house and had a great turnout! I forgot to take pictures - I had my hands full with a VERY hungry little girl! But thankfully our friends Stu & Allison captured a few photos for you!
We also had out of town guests last weekend! Uncle Tom came in from Montana to meet his girlfriend (and our family friend!) Sue from Indiana. They spent a few days in the mountians, hiking and a few days in Denver with us. We had a great visit, I took lots of pictures, but unfortunately, they were deleted from our camera somehow! I'm especially disappointed because I had great pictures of us visiting my great-uncle Bert (Lillian's great-great uncle!) and they're gone. Here's a picture of Tom and Sue at our wedding two years ago.
1. I attempted to dress her in the sleeper she came home from the hospital in and it was too small! Her legs were bent up at the knees and couldn't straighten out.
2. She slept in her crib all night! Of course, she still woke to eat at 2 am, and 4 am but Mike and I have reclaimed our bedroom for ourselves!
3. I put her in her carseat yesterday and I had to re-adjust the straps to fit her in.
So I guess her demanding need to eat is paying off, she's growing! We walked down to the 1st Friday art walk in the neighborhood last night and Lillian received so much attention. Despite her obvious growth spurts to Mike and I, the rest of the world still views her as the little peanut that she is! I've never had so many strangers stop to talk to me! Here's a video I took earlier this week. Enjoy!
