Here she is in all her seventeen-month glory. Shhhh...I took one of these pictures the day before. Good thing, too, cause of the darned wind ruining the actual seventeen month shots. Oh yeah, and that tumble she took off of first base, face first into a mouthful of dirt while discovering the adjacent baseball diamond. That pretty much ended picture day. (She might need a few lessons in running the bases, Uncle John.)
That said, she's pretty amazing at seventeen months. Some favorite words: puh-low (pillow), huhg (hug, with lots of emphasis on the 'uh' part), and still baaay-beeeeee (baby). But those are only three of almost 200.
New signs: elephant, work (as in 'Daddy work'), and 'cycle' (as in the motorcycle ride-on at the park). But those are only three of almost 100.
I am one proud mama. I am sooooooooooooo that parent saying, look what my kid can do. SO her.
And in other happy news, congrats to Rick & Cathy, new parents of baby Johnny, born yesterday and weighing 6 lbs 13 oz, 18 1/2 inches, teeny thing! But finally another boy in the mix for all the girls to fight over!
