End of the school year

The past few times I've posted about Tobias, I feel compelled to share a little about Miss Lydie Lew too. Here are some snapshots from her life...

Here are some photos from the end-of-the-year party for Mother's Day Out.
Lydia and her friend, Owen. They have been buds since their beginnings and have gone to school together for the past 2 years. They see each other multiple times a week and almost act like brother & sister. (Like "arguing" over the silliest things, "That's MY mommy." "No, that's MY mommy.")
Lydia wasn't quite sure what to do on the stage at first...

But she warmed up quickly.

Doing the train

I was amazed at how well she followed instructions. It was so encouraging for me to see her in that type of environment - listening AND having fun!

Being "crocodiles"

I think school this year has really facilitated Lydia's interest in "crafts". Almost every day we do a coloring/cutting/gluing activity. Currently we're going through the letters making people out of them (pasting eyes, nose, mouth, hair, etc.) She's finally interested in it and although her attention span is brief, it's MUCH improved. Her cutting skills are amazing (I wish I could say the same for her gross motor skills - the girl can't catch a ball for anything!). This was taken as she was stickering a crown at her cousin Gabby's 3rd birthday party.

I told them to roar like a lion. :)

Catching fish at the party.

Such a little girl. Legs crossed, fixing her hair. Ugh, she cracks me up sometimes!

She "adopted" this baby for the day while at Gabby's house. She would hold it, rock it, and put it for a nap.

And of course, she jumps at any chance she can to "hold" her baby cousin Rachel, who she ADORES!

We took a mini-Memorial Day hike to the waterfall at Longpine Resivoir.
She couldn't wait to get to the waterfall!

And yes, daddy carried them like this most of the way. Whew!


My girl.

More Memorial Day - Picnic with her pals.

This is classic Lydia. She took off her pants and decided the bucket was an appropriate place to "take a bath." She knows she's being a silly goose, just look at that smile! Love you, Lydie!
