Visited Orange Beach, AL in July and had a wonderful family vacation!  We watched our little girl play in the sand near her family in front of a beautiful hotel and marveled at how much her life has changed.  She warmed up to the sand and ocean where by the end of the week, she was asking to go out into the surf and dunk down in the waves!  She continues to have many first time experiences and we are so excited to watch each one.  We are crazy about this girl!

 tutu tired!

She loved the beach!
Today Lilah-Kate got her glasses!  We think she really likes them because she has not even tried to take them off one time.  She has also been a lot more vocal today, it seems that she has something to say about her new found vision.  Tomorrow, we leave for the beach, so we are very excited for her to experience a whole new world!

If you can't get enough attention in a tutu, try on a pair of boots!  Lilah-Kate loves to dress up and is starting to really ham it up when I break out the camera (can't tell can you)!  I don't know how, but the girl gets cuter every day...

 going to a party!
