14 months

Apparently, Lola has decided that--now that she is 14 months old--she is old enough to hang with the big boys.

Yesterday, Colin took her outside to play--and she certainly did just that.

While the boys were monkeys on the swing set, she had some fun on the slide.

Mommy nervously watched from the deck....

She did well! One leg over....the other leg over...until she was all the way on the slide.
Cameron decided to make silly faces at her, and to coach her from the top, saying things like, 
"C'mon baby girl! All the way to the can do it! You are a good climber Lola!"

....but he just ended up causing her to laugh, lose her grip, and slip to the bottom.

She landed in a giant hole the boys have created with their feet from their non-stop sliding.
Seriously. It is deep.

She didn't seem to mind.

She clapped and bobbed up and down for about five minutes....

....and then found a leaf and made the 'icky' face.
She made sure to show her brothers.

Colin is such a servant....he was the push-er, as usual, while Ethan was the push--ee.

It was adorable to look out and see a foursome on our swing set.  But it was even better to see my boys'  love and protection for their little sister while they played.  They were not more than two feet away from her most of the time, making sure she was okay.

She was.

I'd say it was a successful first trip to the swing set.

Happy 14 months, Lola Claire!

In LC's last picture there's only one sock. That's the best part. :)

She gets prettier and prettier each time I see her pics! As I looked at your post, tears came to my eyes. I am so happy that God blessed you with Lola girl. She is certainly a miracle and I love her (and you)!!
