This weekend my sister, her husband, Mike, and their new baby, Lily, made a surprise visit to check in on my dad’s recovery after knee replacement surgery. Lily is my first niece and I love her spiky hair but she is a cry baby. When she last visited, she cried the whole time so we couldn’t go near her. Thankfully, she is older and doesn’t cry as much so we were excited to be able to hold and play with her.
We pulled out the Bumbo chair both Baby and Princess used when they were babies from the attic. It was a whole new world for Lily now that she could sit by herself.
While we ate a pizza snack she sat in the middle of the table and shook hands with my dad.
Listened to my mom sing her favorite songs. My mom lived with my sister for 5 weeks after she had Lily and she sang to her all day. Lily is 4 months old and she still remembers my moms singing.
The girls gave her toys to play with. They are still trying to figure out how to play with her.
The girls thought since she isn’t big enough to play with them, Lily might like to watch them play. So they moved her to the floor.
