10 Things we LOVE about Lily Hanks!

(aka Lilers, Lily-kin, Lily Vanilly, Liller spills, Lily Skibilsters, Lil)

1. We love the way you can jabber on for hours as quiet as a mouse, and then explode with volume that would match an elephant.

2. We love the way you nerd out and pretend to be laughing or entertained when we are trying to be funny. Your fake "that's funny" smile is the funniest thing on earth!

3. We love how snugly you are and how you will race across the room as fast as you can just to plow into our arms and slobber-smooch our faces.

4. We love the way you crawl like a bear wherever you go, unless you have to get through a tunnel.

5. We love that you can out-eat all of us in any single sitting.

6. We love how you like to be pretty and you try so hard to do your hair and dress up like your big sister.

7. We love the way you put up with Brooklyn's constant attention and smothering, whether you like it or not.

8. And we love the way you will fight to the death when you are ready to be put down and have some space.

9. We love how playful you are and how you love to be thrown around, teased, and tickled.

10. And we love that you will just sit and chill in our laps for hours.

We feel so blessed to have you in our family Lily and we all love you SO much! Happy 1st Birthday Little One!

Oh I love my Lily!! I can't believe she's already been around for a whole year! She's really so wonderful and I'm glad Naomi that you decided to suffer through pregnancy again to bring her here :) Thanks for your Mommy sacrifice!
