So if you've been around Lila lately you have probably noticed how social this girl is. She LOVES everyone and every day she becomes more and more independent. My little girl is just like I was at her age, or so I hear.
At church Lila really likes to go and sit with other people, even if I don't really know them. I don't mind because she never goes very far and she's always willing to come back when I need her to. I also make it clear that they don't need to let her sit with them if they don't want her to. It helps me know she is really secure and knows that we're always there when she wants to come back to us.
Anyway, today at church things were particularly interesting. Lila decided that she wanted to go and sit with another little family today that were in the row just in front of us. They have a little 3 year old boy who is just adorable. Well Lila sat nicely on the mother's lap and played with her bracelets. It was going well and Lila and the little boy were getting along just fine. Every once in a while she would lean over and give him a hug or a kiss and then continue to play. It didn't take long, however, for things to get a little out of hand. Lila suddenly could not seem to stop hugging the little boy and kissing him. He was really sweet and would try nicely to get away, but she just kept going for it. At one point the little boy even said, "I'm not a toy!" It was hilarious to watch them. In fact there were several people around watching them and laughing. It was a little distracting.
After that I went and got Lila and things were fine again. I felt a little bit bad, but right after sacrament meeting the boy came over to say hi to her again and so I realized he really hadn't cared. He never got mad, but I think just a little overwhelmed. :) What am I going to do if my little girl is already boy crazy?! There are a few boys that she enjoys hugging in our ward. It really is quite adorable to see.
