Holidays with Friends.

"Save me... Daddy has my legs... save me"
At 16 months she has finally decided to walk. At last she won't be ruining anymore pants. She will walk by herself but prefers a finger to hold.
Christmas morning Maria arrived with coffee drinks in hand. She was our Christmas Angel for sure considering Elizabeth has been rising at 3am for about a week.
Spent Christmas Eve with our friends Sam, Lynn, Anneka and Virginia. Virginia actually spent a week with us. Was supposed to be her holiday but I think with the 3am Elizabeth alarm it was perhaps not as restful. We had fun though!!

20 years of mairrage

I went back east for Bill and Lisa's 20th wedding anniversary and got some shots of the cousins together. I only hope that Jeff and I manage to have such a wonderful relationship in 20 years. Their kids are also just fun to be around.

James and Kathryn desperately trying to get Elizabeth to smile.
The cousins.

Play Gym




One of the reasons we moved was for a larger house. It allows the space for visitors when they come but even better we have quite the play space. Some 200 feet of covered deck outside which is great in the Seattle rain but also an amazing basement where she can just go loose. Thank goodness for used finds on craigslists and the reusing of boxes for playhouses. Please notice Jeff in the playhouse... she loves to put her dad in the house and makes him stay put!!!

ABC's

videoWhen I sing the ABC's to Elizabeth I always accompany it with the letters in sign language so check out her hand movements. It is her attempt to sign along to the song. She had quite the audience as you can hear... Jeff's parents were her for a great visit although somehow we managed to take no photos.
