My bean at the lake

First...I should say that Layla's little nickname since bringing her home from the hospital has been "bean" if I refer to "my bean" or Layla Bean...that's where it comes from...she really doesn't have "bean" anywhere in her legal name :-)  Thank goodness, right?

So I think I have written before about Layla's flair for is the latest Layla original.  She acutally picked out the sunglasses because when mommy "lets the sunshine in" her room in the mornings, it hurts her eyes--she's so smart!   Then she noticed her little bloomers on the floor with the dress I picked out for her--who knew bloomers could double as a hat?  AND the fairy shoes are from last year's Halloween costume--you should have seen her face when she discovered them in her shoe closet!  So imagine Neil's surprise when this little face woke him up yesterday morning.

As promised, here are some pictures from our trip to the lake.  Layla really had a good time...and it was so funny to see her be so insistant that she take a ride on the tube...I mean, everyone else did it.  She also really found her life vest interesting.  I was surprised to see that she never tugged at it or got frustrated at it.  She did, however, get a little frustrated when the boat stopped OR slowed down...HA!

Once again...super cute!! I think you may be raising a future fasion designer. She's off to a great start...that outfit would definitely turn heads. :) And, WOW!!! WHAT A BRAVE LAYLA BEAN!! That's a big tube for such a little lady. She definitely has no fear...I love it!!

She is sooooo cute! We also have "fashionable" girls, especially Elizabeth. I can't wait to see what their styles will be like when they are teenagers...yikes!
