Lots of stuff!!!

I can't believe I'm updating the blog and it's only been 1 month!! This may be a record!!! (Yes, I know Kim... it's about time I keep up with my blog!!) We are all doing great, Laila's growing and growing. I keep asking her to stay small for mommy and she shakes her head no. Stinker!! She's doing great with her speech therapy, her therapist is always so impressed at how smart Laila is and how much she's learned since her last session. Laila can drink out of a straw which is a big deal for a cleft palate baby, especially when her palate hasn't been closed yet, just another reason our Laila ROCKS!!! She's the most amazing little girl and I can't believe how lucky we are to be her family!!

Here's Laila in the bathtub, she loves the bath!!

We went to the zoo a few weekends ago and ended up buying a family membership. We only saw 1/2 the zoo and we were all pooped. It's a big zoo and we had so much fun. Laila loved all the animals, especially the bears and lions. She likes to growl like a bear or lion and scare us so when she could growl at a bear or lion she was very happy. She also helped daddy feed the birds.

Laila and daddy rode the train at the zoo...
and the carousel.
We went down to Colorado Springs and to the Olympic Training Center. Here's Laila and mommy in the Olympic rings.
We also saw Dani, Michael, Devin and JT. They were in our travel group to China and they adopted JT. It was so good to see them all, JT is such a little character and cute as can be!! Unfortunately all my pictures ended up too dark, we took them outside after dinner.

Laila's grandma came out to visit for about 2 weeks to watch Laila while Scott and I worked. Here's Laila putting her feet on a chair just like grandma!!
A little shorter than grandma but gets an A+ for effort!! Here's my dad and Laila, they are great friends as you can tell!!
Nothing like a kiss from grandpa.
Here's Laila on her beanbag, eating, watching Yo Gabba Gabba. Life for a 2 year old is pretty good.
Look, Laila's hair is long enough for pony tails!!!! How stinkin' cute!!!
So there's the last month or so in a nutshell. We hope you had as much fun as we did!!!
