"L" is for lovely Lily

This post is about my lovely granddaughter Lillian.  I'm joining Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday and we are celebrating the letter "L".

My granddaughter will be 3 in October and we are realizing just how beautiful she is.  She has a pure innocence about her that shows through her gorgeous eyes and smile.  She easily speaks her mind and views the world through eyes that know and share love and security.

               Lily's serious face reminds me of a Madame Alexander doll. 

Lily is a happy-go-lucky toddler with a ready smile and an inner confidence that never ceases to amaze us.  Sometimes she is a little too fearless for her own good, but her individuality endears us to her completely.  Sometimes she insists on having what her brother has and then a bit of rivalry begins. 

I think that the following picture says it all about Lily.
"I'm here and I'm happy".

 Lily loves to run and play.  Occasionally she runs at inappropriate times searching for toys in a store or some girly-girl stuff like hats and pink purses!   

 My daughter took this picture when they drove up Mt. Lemmon in Tucson for a bit of fun and sightseeing.  I've never been to Mt. Lemmon but I understand that there is a ski resort and a village called Summerhaven.  Mt. Lemmon is in the Catalina Mountains and is about 9,000 feet above the Tucson desert. 
Here we have Lily, showing some attitude with her grin and her hand on her hip!  My grandson, Brandt, doesn't seem to be amused by Lily's antics.

This is one of my favorite photos of my daughter, Karen, and Lily.  My son-in-law and his extended family had several photos taken on the grounds at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and this is one of the pictures captured by the photograper.

My two grandchildren are loved so very much. Lily is always showing her independence and charm, while Brandt, who rarely forgets anything, amuses us with his in-depth conversations.

Did you see Gerber is looking for a new baby?

She would be a real contender.
