singing frog

This morning Birdie clapped and waved without any demonstration--just by me asking her each one. Pretty impressive. However, she will never do it for anyone else. When I ask her to do it, this is pretty much the look I get. I have my very own singing frog.

just try not to smile

Maybe it's just me, but I can't help smiling when I see this face.

new tricks

Birdie's recent trick is that she can wave bye-bye. I've been working on clapping hands, and she finally got it down today. Then, as we were unpacking this afternoon, we had her in a cardboard box with us in the closet, and she pulled herself up! She did it again in her crib a little later. I think she's officially going to skip crawling.

Daddy was making her laugh. Plus, she's pretty proud of herself and giggles when she stands up.

I wish the light had been better, because I really love this pic.

pics from the last few weeks

While we were waiting on the house to close, Birdie and I spent our time in Louisiana with family.

red room

We have a long list of things we want to do to the house from small repairs to lots of decorating, so here's the first of many: red master bedroom.

big girl

Here's the first picture of Birdie in our new house. I had to post it because she already looks so much older than the ones from Easter.

we're home

Well, it took 3 hotels, 2 plane rides, 2 cross-country drives, 2 PODS, 10 movers, 2 sweet sisters, an ever-changing closing date, and 6 weeks, but we're here. Last night was the first night that Birdie, David, and I spent together as a family in our new house. It was wonderful. And, Birdie had her second 4-hour stretch of sleep. Life is good.

This is my new favorite Birdie pic. I took it at the Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport. Many more pictures from the last several weeks to come.

so close...

We are closing on our house today! I'll update more tonight before I lose internet access again. Here is a quick pic from Easter.
