Lilly Love

Lilly love. Lilly infatuation. Lilly fondness. Lilly crush. Lilly obsession. Lilly stalking.

Whatever you want to call it, Spencer has it. He has fallen for Lilly. Hard. He's smitten.

It's not like Spencer just met Lilly for the first time at her birthday party. At ages 3 (Lilly) and 2 1/2 (Spencer), they actually already have quite the history with each other. This is the first time, though, that Spencer #1) is aware of Lilly's name AND can say it and #2) remembers her after he has seen her and is able to talk about her and the things they did together. And what, you ask, did they do together? Hug and eat cake. That's it. Not very exciting, but that's all he's talked about for 2 days.

This is Spencer's "first" "experience" with Lilly. She was 1 month old and I was about 12 weeks pregnant. Ha!

Their actual first meeting. Spencer was about 6 weeks and Lilly was 7 months. You have to remember that Spencer was 4 weeks early so his adjusted age was 2 weeks. We joked that Lilly and Spencer didn't even look like the same species because although they were both babies, one was a "big" baby and one was an itty bitty baby.17 months and 10 monthsLooking shell shocked that they were just thrown together at the zoo.A pesky little brother getting in the way of young love.Ahh. The infamous hug. Spencer brings it up at least every 45 minutes during his waking hours. I'm sure he's dreaming about her at night too. I saved the Baby-Lilly (Spencer refuses to call himself by his name and calls himself "Baby") hug picture to my desktop. Spencer just sits there and stares at it.

And then smiles when you ask him who it is. "Baby Lilly hug again"

Chelsea, our plan seems to be coming together quite nicely. I'd say let's go shopping for our mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom dresses but I don't know what will be in style after the kids finish law and medical school- which they have to do before getting married.

Um... does bring pink, lots of lace, and sequins EVER go out of style?
I think the only question here is what to serve at the wedding and which child will be the doc and which will be the lawyer!
Whoop! Love you Natalie!

Wait, wait...can Spencer and Soren SHARE Lilly? Okay, maybe that's not possible. They could take turns being her husband. :) Yeah, that's it. I love your blog Natalie, and it was really nice to finally have a chance to visit with you!

Ah...young love. Just wait until they reach the "boys/girls have cooties" stage!

Hugging and eating cake? Awesome. Two of the best things EVER.
