We're normally fairly picky about what Lilah is allowed to ingest, but with all the birthday parties and special events we've been attending this summer, dinner may easily consist of a hot dog (or in some cases just the ketchup) and a cupcake.
Dessert is practically a dietary staple these days. The words "pie," "ice cream," "popsicle," and "freezie" have all made their way into Lilah's budding vocabulary, and she's not afraid to use them. Plus, she's always been a cookie-lover but now she's taking it to a whole new level and matching them to her outfit:
Summer makes us a little more flexible about pretty much everything: bedtime is often whenever-we-get-home-ish, bath time can be just a mere suggestion (I swear, at one point her hair was actually crunchy it needed washing so badly), and she runs around like a savage with food all over her face and stains all over her shirt.
We also spend as much time outside as humanly possible. Which means taking activities we traditionally reserve for indoors outside for a new twist. Like drawing,
And with all that fresh air and exercise of course she also needs to sleep...
|I'm kidding, obviously! This was just my kid being weird. Again. Seriously, where does she get that from???|
Hot summer days also mean that Mama is willing to run through the spray fully clothed.
|In a white skirt with serious see-through potential, no less. Summer does something to my brain.|
Yep, now that we're finally getting some summer in Vancouver, we are living it up. It's one big party over here chez Lilahbility!
