Babies? What Babies?

So, just as Abby is officially no-longer a toddler shaped little girl, Liam and Lily are officially toddlers. They don't even bother to crawl anymore and just toddle and climb and explore. We have this make-shift barrier to try to keep them confined to the living room (we now call it "the corral"), but they are constantly finding ways of breaking out. They are usually sporting a variety of bumps and bruises in varying stages of healing. (Check out Lily's shiner!) Oh, and they encourage each other in their attempts. Lily prefers the climbing over things method (Liam had been known to give her a leg up to help out) and Liam prefers the "brute strength" method... and he is STRONG!. Abby helps out the best she can and enjoys playing with her brother and sister now that they can finally play. And speaking of "play", I have started teaching her piano. I plan on getting her through the first book and then I'll find her a proper teacher... so far, so good! They looked so cute at church today, I had to take some photos. The dress Lily is wearing was one of my very favourite ones of Abby's (take a look below at little Abby). I love re-visiting all of her old clothes and giving them new life with Lily. Paul and I are still just doing the best we can. We look forward to his promotion which will take place as soon as a position opens up and he interviews with a district manager. We feel very blessed to live in a nice neighbourhood in a lovely home. We are so very fortunate.

It's weird that bald Abby had more hair than Lily. I guess she wasn't so bald after all, eh?

You two make good-looking babies. Remember we used to talk about that when discussing future mates? HA!
