from baby to big girl

Hello again! Here is the picture of my little daredevil that I mentioned in my last post. I had no idea 10 month olds could do things like this! One day they are hating tummy time, the next they are climbing on everything in sight!

This week also brought new adventures! Guess who has mastered walking?!? Yep! We are saying goodbye to carpet burned knees and hello to shoes! Ella Claire has been taking steps by herself for about 2 weeks now. As of yesterday, I think I can officially call her a walker. She has been walking all over the place! She still crawled a bit today when she was tired, but she is now preferring walking over crawling. I'm happy and sad all at the same time! This was her very first time to ever
wear shoes. Doesn't she look like such a big girl?

(Don't know why these pics are so small??)

Oh! I love that sweet little thing! She is learning so many new things. She will shake her head, yes if you ask her a question like, "Ella Claire, are you a sweet girl?" or "Ella Claire, are you a smart girl?" She also will hold up 1 finger when you ask her how old she is. But, that one we are still working on. She has to be "in the mood" to cooperate and hold up that little finger. ;)

We are in full blown party planning mode at our house. Well, I say we, I mean me! Jeremy just comes home everyday asking "Did you spend any money today?" or "How much money did you spend today?" I'm really not going too crazy. We are just having a family party. But, it's still hard for me to not want to go all out! I have a few projects that I am working on for the party and I can't wait to see how they all turn out. Well, I guess that's all for now. Hope to be back real soon!

double the fun

I've been gone for far too long, but I've been busy. My days are now filled with watching two babies. That's right. Two. Not one, but two! Madelaine has joined Ella Claire and me during the day every Monday- Thursday. And we're having lots of fun. These babies are as sweet as they come and I am honored to have them in my care. M is still just a tiny mite at 4 months old but she is learning new things everyday and will soon be sitting up and playing with Ella Claire. And EC, well she is into EVERYTHING!!! She is taking steps by herself now and climbing on everything. I caught her red handed standing in her baby stroller push toy a few weeks ago. I quickly took a picture (how could I not capture it!?!) and then put her sweet little feet safely back on the floor. The picture is not uploaded to my computer yet, so I'll have to post it later. It's way late now and I'll have an early wake up call in the AM, but I'll leave you with one picture of the cutest cousins in town.
