14 Months Today

…and she’s officially walking.
Got an email from my Dad this afternoon, that read :
"There she goes!!!  Life will never be the same, but that’s ok." 
love pops


Her Favorite Things Right Now:

Playing peek-a-boo. Which consists of her yelling out "boooh" when she hides her face only to very quickly peek back at us with a huge grin, often accompanied by squeals. She is so very proud of herself for being so tricky!

And we of course laugh and laugh because we can’t help it.

The other big thing that she’s into right now is playing the bellybutton game. You really should try it sometime. The object is to lift your shirt ( or even your "team-mates" shirt if you’d rather) or look down your( or your "team-mates") shirt.

Once you’ve finally spotted the sought after b.b. (we have shortened it to "bee-boo") you burst out into a giggle of glee
 and then proceed to tickle yourself or your "team-mate" with gusto.
You repeat this pattern over and over until you get distracted by something like, the cat for instance.

Words She is saying:

Hi there!
happy! (this is my favorite word that she says)

boo ( boooh)
thank you ( we tell her, " say please’ so she says " tane-choo")
side (outside)
pretty (this is my other favorite word that she says…
usually either in response to someone’s earrings or a flower we’ve stopped to smell)
one ( if you ask her " how old is baby")
that (dat) she say to everthing as she points with her chubby little baby finger
snack (sna)
and drink (dink)

And she nods her head all the time. When we anyone says anything, She looks you in the eye nods. I mean, she is just always agreeable. Perhaps it’s has something to do with the fact that she has yet to learn to shake her head or say the word no,which of course we are in no hurry for her to add to her growing vocabulary list.


So aside from the occasional poop in the bath-tub, refusal to nap or eat her peas, emptying of the contents of every bottom drawer in our house, and the kind of fit that is accompanied by throwing oneself down on the floor, much wailing and kicking of the feet…being her mommy is pure bliss.

On this, Good Friday…



Blue skies with white clouds on summer days.

A myriad of stars on clear moonlit nights.

Tulips and roses and violets and dandelions and daisies.

Bluebirds and laughter and sunshine and Easter.


ee how He loves us!"
