Well, I guess there are two exciting things about Alice:
- A second tooth has finally poked through! She had been a one-toothed pumpkin for almost two months.
- She had previously found out how to pull herself up, but just over the last few days she's really been looking for ANY opportunity to do so. Here's a video of her standing with Houdini: http://youtu.be/pRbFu4YKbWI
Also, she still loves choosing the most difficult way to go places--if it involves going over something or under something, that is the way she'll choose. She especially loves when her mother's exercises creates a human tunnel to crawl through.
Here are some photos of recent happenings:
|We had some of Ryan's med school friends over--the other two that had babies last year. We wives really liked the look of this photo and thought it should happen more often.|
|We made our first ever turkey! A bacon-wrapped turkey, to be precise. It turned out amazing!|
|Sunday before Valentine's Day. Of course we needed to get the picture before the shoes came off. Couldn't quite keep the headband on for long, either.|
|I accidentally poured out a bunch of Cheerios instead of just a few. Alice got so excited and dove right in, grabbing them by the fistful (there are bananas in there, too, to make for a gooey mess). I love the sincere excitement on her face.|
|Alice: I love going through funnels, like this me-sized one created by the couch.|
|Surveying the destruction. And this is proof that sometimes (most of the time) I just can't hold still long enough for mom to get my pants back on. I'm lucky I'm wearing the diaper!|
|Good morning, sleepy face!|
|Tooth! (The new one hasn't poked through yet at this point.)|
|Over is always the best way (unless under is an option).|
|Happy Valentine's Day! I just woke up from a nap.|
|Practicing squats to work off some of the leg chub|
|Oh joy! Look at where I pulled myself up to! There are some big incentives here . . . bird toys, bird playground, bird bells, bird.|

Here are the projects I finished up this week:
|We can also swing the gate to block only the stairs. We just need to put some sort of hook thing in the wall to keep it there. Okay, so this project isn't 100% done.|
|I invented this mobile out of unlikely craft store items.|
|I finally painted Alice's letters and got them up. Previously, her walls had been bare except for on one wall.|
|Alice noticed the mobile immediately the first time she was in the room with it up.|
|I made this painting of Pittsburgh for my friend from Turkey.|
