Lilly's New Words & 25 firsts!

Lilly is just a little chatterbox lately! She is starting to repeat things!! Her favorite words are: dada, dog, Kyle (pronounce dial or tyle), I love you (sounds like I ove uuuu), and last night she said Taylor (she has an Uncle Taylor).....she is amazing!! Seriously smart girl! This morning i caught her trying to put my sandels on her feet. So cute! She can do SOOO BIG (throws her arms in the air), show me where her belly is, give high fives, clap, tries to put her bows in her hair, turns her book over if it is upside down, and loves to dance! I just love, love, love my sweet girl!

Found this on another blog and thought it would be fun!

Last Saturday, Lilly & I spent the night at my parents house since Kyle had to go to a Bachelor party in Chicago. We had lots of fun...AWESOME deal shopping at Kmart with my future sis-in-law, apple orchard, more shopping, etc... Have I mentioned my little brother is getting married?! He got engaged about a month ago and they are busy planning their wedding which will be next Sept. 25! My new sis-in-law is awesome! Her name is Hayley and she fits in perfectly with my family. We had so much fun shopping together....seriously running around kmart at 9:55 PM! I am so excited for Hayley to be a part of my family.

So anyway...Kmart had double coupons up to $2 last week (last day was Sat. when I went). I am so into coupons and getting good deals that I was SO excited for this. If I was smart I would have gone every day that week! Seriously though I got so so so much stuff for $35 total. Here is a list of everything I think I got...I may be missing some stuff...but I will post a picture! I basically paid for formula & diapers and got everything else for next to nothing.

Huggies Diapers
2 Huggies wipes
Dove deoderant
Crunch & Clean Dog treats
4 Reeses
Mayballine (sp?) Mascara
Cover Girl Nail Polish
3 Kotex Lightdays
Strawberry Mini Wheats Cereal
Shirt for Lilly
6 pack Zest Soap
Hmmmm.......can't remember what else!

Anyway...I love good deals, so I was thrilled about all of these awesome deals!

In other news...Lilly will be 1 in about 2 weeks. CRAZY...can't believe one year ago she was still in my belly and now she is such a big girl. A beautiful, funny, sweet, spunky, and just plain amazing big girl. Actually she is my teeny tiny girl. I think she only weighs about 20 lbs, but she is very tall. Tall & skinny like her daddy & mommy! Did I mention she is having a PRINCESS birthday party in 2 weeks?? She is, and I am getting ready to order her a cutie patootie tutu outfit from Etsy. Have a great weekend!
