So about a week ago I thought it would be a fun idea to enter Lilah into a contest through Parents Magazine. I received an email yesterday saying that Lilah now has a chance to become a weekly favorite but we need your votes to do it (everyone who is entered has the same chance). She is currently number 972 for the week so pass on the following link to everyone you know and lets see if we can get her vote count up! If she were to win the contest she would be able to have a shot to be on the cover of American Baby magazine… pretty awesome!!!
Get your friends and family to vote too! Just forward this email to them or share the link. http://photos.parents.com/category/vote/photo/305293
(For some reason, the link I posted yesterday takes you to someone else’s kid… let me know if this one does as well)
Anyway… this past weekend marked the first in a series of weekends in which our family is incredibly busy. With Lilah’s first wedding (Congrats Katie and Todd), her first trip to the bowling alley, a trip to a bbq festival in Valley Junction and her first sleepover, Lilah was in a constant state of new experiences. She was, as always, perfectly behaved although in her usual manner refused to take naps all weekend. She managed to catch a few minutes of shut eye in the moments spent driving to and from all the festivities but refused to allow herself to sleep too much. In typical Lilah fashion every minute spent sleeping was a chance of missing out on the excitement around her.
I didn't really take any pictures of her this weekend but my aunt Jenny took this picture a few weeks ago at her housewarming bbq. It is one of my all time favorite Lilah pics:
I also thought I would share the result of what happens when mommy is in the kitchen, daddy is outside grilling and Lilah sees an object on the table within her reach:
