Funny Faces

Our little goof-ball, seeing how the chair tastes.
I love this face she's giving Tadd (see his paw at the bottom). Even though it's Tadd's ball, she thought she had the rights to it at that moment.
No, she's not crying, she's laughing! She thought it was the funniest thing that she turned the Bumbo chair over and then got on it...until she fell off it backwards, and then it wasn't so funny anymore!

Let it Snow

This is the most snow we have gotten all winter. It snowed non-stop yesterday and the result was about 4-5 inches of snow and the sky is threatening more. I was hoping to get to March without much at all, but alas, no such luck. We'll see how long it sticks around. It's suppose to be close to 50 degrees by next weekend.

Tottering Along


video
I said that I would get a better video of Raeann walking, and since it took me a week, she is gaining steps and going farther. She always lands on her bottom when she topples over, and that's not enough to scare her out of trying it again.

At the Park

It was a fairly nice day, in the high 40's, so we decided to take Raeann to the park for the first time...well, since she's become a crawler, talker, and walker. She was very interested in the grass.
I don't think she enjoyed the swing too much...I guess she's not quite big enough for it yet.
At the top of the slide!
Going down the smallest slide. We did actually go down the other slides too, including the twirly one. I think she enjoyed that one the most, as it was the only one she even commented on with a slight "ma" when we got to the bottom.

Do you think you can do all that?


Mike and I had three days of conferences after full school days this week and we didn't get home until 7:30 or so, so our sitter, Heather, kept Raeann, gave her dinner and then brought her over to our house and put her to bed. This is the board with the instructions for how to take care of her from 5:30 - 7:00 (or bedtime). Do you think I'm maybe a little paranoid about her routine or what?

Starting to Walk

video
Raeann started to walk on Sunday. Sorry that the video is sideways. We've been trying to get one of her walking, but it's very difficult when she only takes a few steps at a time. We'll get a better one soon!

The Proof is in the Puddin'

video
In an earlier post I mentioned Raeann getting in and out of the laundry basket by herself. Here's proof that you can't leave a basket of laundry just sitting around without eventually finding a baby in it. You even get a little dancing and a wave good-bye too - the cherry on top!
