Okay...back to the blog...and getting the 7 updates done. It's busy around we went out of town to visit Grandma and Grandpa.

Sis is getting big...and! She runs full speed from sun up to sun down. She falls and gets up and keeps on going. A friend who teaches gymnastics commented that she is very sure footed. She climbs to the top of our play structure. She goes up the slide an then stands at the top yelling to the boys in the yard. She swings in the big kid swing never lets go and LOVES to go high and fast. She also climbs up onto the barstools and gets up on the counter...dumping drinks and wrecking things...well, her nickname is Godzilla!

Sis's language is really taking off. Most of her sentences have to do with food..."I want that, I want a bite, I want some". She said, "Hi Mom" when I went to get her out of her crib. She says all the kid's names and is adding about 5 words a day and putting them into sentences. She is super bright!

She is very attached to her Mama. She loves Papa too but wants me all the time. She wraps her little arms around my neck and hangs on for dear life. She gets jealous when I'm holding baby brother but has no problem climbing up and making room for herself too. She calls her bottle the "Mama Baba". We have debated taking her off the bottle but she is NOT ready for such a drastic move. She loves it and gets such great comfort from it. It's also about the only time you can get her to slow down, sit on your lap and snuggle. She puckers up her little lips to kiss everyone...including the cat multiple times a day;)
She is such a fun, busy, loving little girl. I couldn't imagine our life without her!

  1. It has been a year since Cam and I (and Gramma B and Grampa J) went to Ethiopia to bring this little girl home. It has been wonderful watching her hit each and every developmental marker and try to do more, go further, learn quicker than her older sibs. What a treasure this little girl is! So beautiful - "and smart, too." Just like her mama and aunties and grammas. Hooray for this little one! I can hardly wait to see what she does next!
