Lily found something!

Two nights ago, I went into Lily's bedroom to check on her, and for the first time, I saw her playing with her feet! I've been waiting over 22 months to see Lily play with her feet. I don't know why, but I just think it's the cutest thing that babies do, and it always made me a little sad that Lily didn't do that.

But two nights ago, that changed! Now LG plays with her feet all the time!

My mind knows that, developmentally speaking, Lily is behind with this. My heart sweeps that information under the rug and rejoices that my little girl plays with her feet. And I can't get enough of it! I'm constantly staring at her new "toy"!

Here's a picture of how she does it:

She even hooks her little finger around her big toe and pulls on it, but she holds on tight! And I keep staring!

Unfortunately, though, Lily caught the cold that Gabriel has. I wouldn't be so worried, but this one has gone down into Gabriel's lungs and he's now on breathing treatments. That scares me for Lily. I know there's so much worse going on in our world right now--things far worse than little colds--but if you would, please pray that this one stays away from Lily's lungs. Those are the colds that scare me the most.


  1. You Go Lily!!!
    You gotta love you some toes :)
    Praying that she's feeling better soon

  2. Lily, you little champion!! And look at the delight on her face... I LOVE IT!
    Praying that she recovers quickly from this cold, and that it doesn't spread to her lungs... and Jill, hopefully we'll see you all in Africa one day: our doors are always open, and I would love Lily and Miks to meet :) And of course, so would the folks :)

  3. I regret I got behind in checking your blog, Jill. I'm just delighted to hear about Lily playing with her feet...I agree: it's an especially wonderful "feat," and that picture is absolutely adorable. Though it's been a few days since her fever and cold, I'm still gonna pray...please update us soon. Dear Lord, Once again, we ask you to "consider Lily" with mercy and healing. I know You love her very much...please show us Your faithfulness yet again. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
