Name: Lily Jaye Nara Watson
Height: 44.25 inches
Weight: 40 lbs
(which puts her at about the 25th percentile for height and weight)
Favorite Things To Do: color, go to school, hang out with family and friends, read, watch tv/movies, ride her scooter and bike, run around like a crazy person, make everyone laugh
Favorite Shows: Doc Mc Stuffins, Lalaloopsy, pretty much anything on Nickelodeon
Favorite Foods: kalbi, cereal, hamburgers, chicken nuggets, carrots with ranch (never carrots with no ranch), strawberries and mangos
Favorite Disney Princess: Belle from Beauty and the beast (“because she has brown hair just like me!” she is obviously gravitating more to the Watson in her as opposed to the Ham by not mentioning “Mulan”…)
Dislikes: peanut butter (to the point that she has told people she is allergic to it. liar!), warm drinks (will tolerate hot chocolate if there are marshmallows present), shopping (chris couldn’t be happier), when chris goes to work (every night we talk about our least favorite thing that happened that day and EVERY DAY it is that chris goes to work.)
So, that’s my Lilster in a nutshell. She wakes up every morning with a ridiculous smile on her face and is ready for the day! Lately she has been waking up and getting herself dressed before coming upstairs- and her outfits are always a delight to my heart. The temptation to ask her to change is really great on some days, but I am trying really hard to let her find her own personal style (which is kinda hard since i buy all of her clothes…) The best thing that she does though is she layers a tank top under her dresses- she wants to be modest!!! There are so many things that she does that make Chris and I melt with pride, and that’s pretty high on our list!
Lily is pretty much the best big sister in the universe. She cannot go to Dunkin Donuts or the Dollar Store without getting something for Topher too. She loves Mia so much and is just waiting until they can share a room- estrogen extravaganza!
This year we had the distinct pleasure of celebrating Lily’s sixth birthday in California with the Malloys. We had a wonderful breakfast of cereal (her fave) and then we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and had the best time!!!! We saw penguins, jelly fish, sardines, so many things. Funny side note- if you’ve seen “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”- you know that it’s a movie that takes place in Swallow Falls, the sardine capitol of the world. Jeehon was talking about how the auqarium is in an old sardine canning factory and when we were driving there and taking our sweet time, Lily said: “Are we at Swallow Falls yet?” So stinkin cute and funny. After the aquarium we went back to the house, then went to Chuck E Cheeses. Great time had by all. Then we came back home and had Lily and Topher’s joint family birthday part at Chuck E Cheeses AGAIN. It’s great to be six!
Here are some great pics of Lily from this year- but beware- there are lots of precious dimples that will make you melt:
