On our way out the door…

On our way out of my parents place, Lily-Ann showing Jewles where we were parked.  I know photos like this may be boring to many…  but seeing her from the back always blows my mind a little.  Gone are the baby, and even toddler proportions.  And when you aren’t distracted by her face, you just see it all the more clearly.  She’s very much a little girl now.  I don’t know when it happened, but it did.

Damon will sometimes put a diaper on the wee girlie before putting her pajamas on.  As soon as he leaves the room she’ll strip down, take off the diaper, then put the pjs back on without it.  She’ll then look at me and explain how her Daddy still thinks she’s a baby.  Lily will then hand me the diaper and say “I don’t need this”.  But, the next time her dad gets her ready for bed, she’ll let him put the diaper on again… and wait until he leaves the room to take it off.

Seriously… could I have a more sweet, more wonderful little girl?  Sure.  She has her moods too.  She’s awfully headstrong and determined (remind you of anyone?)…  but she cares a whole lot about those around her.  Makes me feel awfully awfully lucky.  🙂
