Evaleigh is getting really good at making animal noises! She can do a dog, cat, cow, monkey, lion, and today she started making a bird sound. She also loves to do "so big!" that she learned from her nana. It's a little hard to hear the dog (ruff ruff) and the lion (rowr). Sometimes she will do a sheep sound.
FINALLY she is walking!! We went to Joel's parents' house last night and I think she liked the soft carpet, and she took several steps on her own! But usually when we tried to get to walk again she would just sit down. Then tonight we were helping her walk and she did! She took lots of steps! This video is after she took several steps. After this video she took several more steps. She had been walking behind her push-carts for a long time and walking while holding our hand, and now she is finally walking by herself! (She is 16 1/2 months old!). She is very cautious and only does stuff when she is confident.
She is saying a lot of words too. She imitates a dog, cat, lion, elephant, and monkey. She says dada, daddy, mama, kitty, yummy, baby (beebee), and sings her ABCs, even though it sounds like E, C. She can sometimes feed herself with her spoon. She climbs on the futon and climbs down backwards. And she still loves to read books! She will sit and read for a long time. She is growing up so fast!
We got about 6-7 inches of snow last night! I am home from school and may be most of the week. It's not supposed to get much above freezing until Thursday. Evaleigh is 16 months old now, and still not walking! She walks fine when she golds our finger, but when we let go, she stand a little, then plops down and crawls. I have a lot of videos and pictures that I should post...
Today I hope to sew some cloth napkins. We had tons of paper napkins and I wanted to have some cloth ones made by the time we ran out. We are on our last bit of paper napkins! I also plan on baking a cranberry nut loaf, and some cranberry/pear/applesauce for Evaleigh to freeze.
Maybe if we are out of school most of the week I can start some of the many other projects I have!
Here's a real short video of her on her rocking horse that she got for Christmas. She can do it by herself, with help getting on.
I am from MN and PA, but currently live in GA with my wonderful husband. We've been married for 4 years and are expecting our first baby in September. I teach second grade and he works at Starbucks. I love to spend time with him and crochet.
