my funny monkey


“Mama, do you know what I love best about you? I love your heart.”

“Did you know I‘m going to adopt a baby brother from Ireland?”

me: “Lilah, are you really excited to get your new glasses?”
lilah: “Well actually, I’m really excited about my new baby sister.”

"Does God see EVERYBODY... with His TWO eyes?"

“When a baby boy or a baby girl is born, are they born wearing clothes?”

“When you get old, your memory gets old and you can’t think very well!”

“I love Mama & Baba & God… oh yes, and my baby sister.”

“Why are you only allowed one baby in China?” Will they know I’m the big sister?”

“Hi Mama, isn’t that pretty magic? I can jump and skip at the same time!”

“Mom, be careful! If you squash my belly, the food will go into my legs!”

“How does my skin get darker?”

“Why are there no freckles on the underside of your arms?”

After going to the circus one day: “Wow, wasn’t that SOOO magical?”

Baba and I were having a minor disagreement one day - Lilah, in her bossy voice:
"BABA! I'm giving you 10 seconds to apologize to Mama!! How many times do I have to tell you? SIXTY-FIVE times??"

"Mama, you're the best cooker in the whole wide world!"

Talking to Baba and I one night: "I like that you two love me and I love you too."

  1. She is such a cute and funny little monkey. I just adore her. I really chuckled at the freckles under the arm pit one. Harry DOES have freckles in his armpit which is actually a sign/marker/symptom of a disease (NF1). It is ironic because only people with a genetic diseases get them there...who knew? Lilah could be doctor!

  2. She really just says the sweetest things! She must make you laugh one minute and melts your heart the next... I can hardly wait to see her with her new sister!

  3. Honestly, I am just amazed at her thoughts! If you don't have the Dr. Seuss book, "Oh The Things You Can Think", you should get it for your little thinker!

  4. Reading the stuff Lilah comes up with just makes my day! Thank you for sharing, Jill. Love these fun shots of your little barefoot beauty, too.

  6. oh, she is so precious!!! :)

  7. I love the last comment of hers that you shared. Simply perfect.
