More Lilly Diaries and a CU Freebie

I'm late posting this...sorry!! Yesterday was busy, busy..lots to do and places to go. Everyone wanted to see Lilly. Miss Popularity!! Lilly enjoyed the day and as usual played to the audience, bestowing her best smile on all around. She even had on her party bubbles, spitting or yelling...unless the attention started to drift away from her and then she just politely reminded people who they had come to see. When she had refocused their attention she was gracious again, a bit like the queen holding court! But they loved her!!

On Friday we actually had some sun so we spent a bit of time in the garden. Does anyone know if daisies are toxic? Lilly loves them and as with everything she loves she has to put them in her mouth and chew. I rescued several, with a bit of manhandling she eventually gave them up. It was amazing we sat on the grass and she stayed still for 5 minutes just looking and watching...following things with her eyes but not a move or sound. It was lovely to see. Mind you my DH spoilt it a bit as he said Lilly was just pondering her next move!!

Not only have I got the hang of how to duck and dive from bubble and spit but bedtime has taken a turn for the better. The good news is I cracked it!! Well..let's get this right..Lilly was graceful and allowed me to crack it!! Last night's bedtime went like clockwork.....well, sort of! It was only a minor skirmish instead of a full scale battle. That has got to be good! No, it didn't happen on schedule but getting closer to it. Bath time was great fun, wet but enjoyed by all. The wind down period afterwards was relaxed, no huffing or puffing over it. Sure there was a little protest (I'm understating again, lol) but then the girl finally said " What the hell! Lets make old grandma smile and I am just a teeny tiny bit tired" and she smiled sweetly and in no time she slowly slipped away to the land of nod.

Lilly's daddy is not working Sunday and Monday so he called and said he would pick her up today and take her home and bring her back Tuesday morning...awh!! That's lovely!! I was really pleased for Lilly...but me being me....I started to worry!! Will she get confused, all this tooing and froing? Will she not settle when she comes back? So after a restless night pondering every possible problem, I emerged at 5.45am looking like the monster from the Blue Lagoon!! As I walked into the room I was enough to scare the bravest of men and send them screaming in terror...but.....the moment she saw me the tears stopped and there it was....her best smile!! She really didn't care that I was looking like I could stop traffic, she just was pleased to see me and her little arms went up. What more can I say? (Sigh.)

Today I have made a little personal and commercial use freebie. I hope you enjoy them! I have included the three recoloured flowers and the two grey scale ones. Have fun!!

You can download them here

That's all for today folks, catch you tomorrow!! Hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Guess Lilly knows you very well now. It didn't take long as they are so very smart. Rest up for the 2 days and it will soon start all over and I know that no matter what you don't want to miss a minute of her.
