Tuesday, January 15th.
I catch you standing and even cruising on your tip toes often. Anytime I use the microwave, you always hurry over to it, stand on your toes, and reach and stretch, trying to touch the buttons closest to the bottom.


Wednesday, January 16th.
I've been trying to teach you how to blow the whistle that I have on my keychain for a few weeks.
A few days ago, I was sitting on the couch and you just picked up my keys out of the basket on the entertainment center 
and did it, without any help or prodding from me, then started laughing.


Thursday, January 17th.
We've been trying to teach you to sleep unswaddled (again), so it was a rough night. 
I was not ready to get up when you were, so I put you in the floor to play and fell back asleep on the couch. 
This is what I woke up to find.

This is what you do with your hands when you aren't sure about something. 
There's an animal supply store just a few minutes from our house. They have an emu, a llama, rabbits, 
chickens, ducks, turkeys, doves, goldfish, crawfish. . . everything. It's like having a tiny zoo five minutes away.
The weather has been really mild this week so we've been taking advantage of it with outings like this.

I bought Papa a brewing kit for Christmas. 
An Irish Stout has been fermenting since then and was finally ready to bottle today. 
You thought all the bottles were for you to play with and tried to climb in the box.


Sunday, January 20th.
We took a trip to the art museum, and I think you actually enjoyed it. 
You interacted with things a lot more than I assumed you would.


Monday, January 21st.
You found your belly button today. You giggle every time Papa and I lift up our shirts to show you ours.


  1. LOve your photos... every single one... but the one with the belly button is the cutest... the mess is the funniest... and the close up of E´s face is the most beautiful one!

    Your words are sweet too!

  2. our 2 would be fast friends. tippy toes and clanging bottles :)

  3. Love seeing the weeks worth of photos at once, she is such a cutie! I LOVE that last one with her belly button :)
