Our sweet and feisty Lilly Belle turned two this month! It’s hard to believe that two years ago she was a tiny (well, she still is tiny) NICU surgery baby. She’s come so far! She is very headstrong, but very loving. She is talking very well and she can out eat Vivian at nearly every meal. She loves beans, pizza (of course), fruit, quesadillas, cereal, and nearly everything else. She’ll even eat salad! And, she’s a great sleeper – 12 hours at night and 2-3 hour naps! Who knew two years ago when we were in the thick of feeding and sleeping issues that we’d come out the other side like this?! Lillian especially loves Vivian and seeing the two of them play together and pretend together makes us smile all the time. We are SO glad that these girls have each other.
It was a lot of fun celebrating our little girl and we did so with balloons, presents, a big chocolate cake, dinner out, and breakfast with Mickey and his friends. We didn’t throw a big party for her, but she didn’t miss it. She was so happy with everything else and loved telling people that she’s two, along with singing “Happy Birthday” to herself.
Lillian is a ton of fun right now and I know from experience now that the fun is going to increase in the next year. Happy Birthday, Lillian! We love you more with each passing day!
