Ok, so I forgot to mention in my post from yesterday a few things about LilyRose. First she just learned how to skip. Or better yet it's the toddler version of skipping. I believe my niece Christina taught her this. It really is the cutest thing to see. She skips everywhere. We crack up every time. Second, she said her ABC's yesterday. Ok, we had to repeat some of the letters like 50 times but she got through to Z. It was super cute and I am hoping to get all these new milestones on video now. Last but not least, she went to the beach for the first time last weekend. Saturday night me, Anthony, Joseph and LilyRose took a ride to the beach at like 7:15 pm. You had to see her face when she got on the sand. She had no clue of what to make of the whole thing. Joseph went into the water while Anthony stayed down by the water watching him. LilyRose was sitting with me a few feet away on the sand trying to figure out what it was. She couldn't understand why she couldn't get the sand off her hands and feet. It took her a while to get use to it. Well, she decided to walk over to Anthony just as the water was rolling in and it covered her feet. She let out the biggest laugh and scream and that was it, she was hooked. I had no bathing suit for her, so her shorts did just fine. Thank god I always leave the house with an extra outfit or 2.

Sunday we went to the beach nice and early with my cousins Janeen and Kristi and there 5 kids, plus one of there friends with her son. All together there were 7 kids and LilyRose. They had a blast. I didn't bring my camera because I forgot it. Can you believe it, I forgot the camera. It doesn't matter, the whole day is seared in my memory for life. I have a few pics from the night at the beach. There kinda dark but if you click on the pic you can see her face.

More to come soon.

Look at her! Little peanut.
Alena LOVES the beach and sand. She will sit on the beach with a bucket and pail or in her sandbox forever. It's probably the ONLY time she sits still!! LOL
