Easter Eggs!


Sunday night we dyed easter eggs with Emma Claire. She likes to look at them and bang them on her highchair (Big Bird was slightly injured in this process). I tried to get her to decorate them with stickers but she just tried to eat the sticker so I think next year will be a bit more successful. Here are a few pictures of our fun!

Wolfpack Baby

So close...

Emma Claire is soooo close to walking. She's been taking a few steps at a time this week. We call her Evil Kenevil because she has no fear. Here are pictures of her taking a few steps...

Sleepy Girl


Emma Claire has had a chest cold this week and ran a fever off and on. On a good day the swing makes her sleepy, yesterday she gave in. Poor thing slept for a good thirty minutes or so in her swing.



First Tooth

Just ran across this picture and you can actually see her first tooth (bottom). She has two more now on top and a mouthful coming but it's hard to catch them in photos.

Sunday Best

Pretty girl all ready for church!

14 Months


These posts take a bit more time due to the photo editing and for whatever reason I've put it off the past few months. I kept my notes on what she was doing so now it's time to get caught up!



At 14 months, Emma Claire was:



  • Wearing mostly 9-12, still has a few 6-9 things she can wear

  • Size 3 diapers

  • Sleeps 10-11 hours at night is for the most part is down to one nap during the day

  • Weaned to morning and evening feedings only

  • Says bird, baby, book, ball, "ba" for balloon, bubble, kitty, mama, dada, woof woof, duck, bye bye

  • Signs more, milk, all done, and please. Please is my very favorite - she can get ANYTHING she wants I think just by signing please.

  • Understands simple directions from us - on your bottom, push the button, etc.

  • Can stand up without holding onto anything

  • Can stand from sitting on her own (without pulling up on anything)

  • Cruises with ease, speed crawls, & attempts to climb objects

  • Takes 5-10 steps on her own. We are expecting her to take off any day now.

  • Mastering toys that require placing objects in holes, putting shapes into certain places, etc.

  • Mimicing us more - I have a tickle game that I play with her and she has started to mimic the sound & arm motions I make and play back with me.

  • Can point her belly, eye, nose, & ear by name.

  • Loves birds, books, balloons, playing outside, bathtime

Here is her 13 - 14 Month comparison picture. Click to enlarge.
