As Promised…the Video Catchup Post

Alright, here’s our life in video over the past time I haven’t been able to blog.

Wash Your Face
She’s actually really good at cleaning up her messes. Well…trying to clean up her messes. That includes her own face. Her usually very messy face.

Monkey’s Favorite Game
At 5 Months

At 18 Months

Who’s My Favorite?

Love You

What about now?

Isshe (Otherwise known as Peek a Boo)
Grandparents started playing this game by asking, “Where is she?” when Monkey would hide. Now she calls the game (and the blanket/towel/pillow used to play it) “isshe.”

Singing the “Bitty Bider Song”
Mimi taught us this song.

She is SOOO TALKATIVE! All the time!

Rocking Chair
A favorite game, we sing while she rocks.

Looking for S
Monkey has friends she loves to play with. But when those friends disappear to go find something else, she gets concerned.

Pretty Pink Flower
Daddy’s shoulders might be the greatest place in the entire world. And we have also recently become obsessed with all things “pretty.”

I can put on my shoes!
This one’s a little long, but demonstrates our fantastic shoe-putting-on-our-hand ability.

Sleepy Song
When Monkey tries to sleep in the car.

Ari’s Soap
Playing in the bath and pretending to bathe.

Drawing “Sunsine”
All circles are “sunsine,” even those hastily drawn in spilled mashed potatoes on our high chair.

More Pickle!
In which Monkey can’t decide what to eat, but declares her love of cruises.

What if I say it really, really slow?
There is no video here, only audio, but if you listen closely you can tell she’s repeating the same phrase over and over again. We can’t understand her, so she eventually just slows it down to a crawl, emphasizing syllables to help us understand.

Trying out a recently learned skill.

We LOVED the penguins at the zoo. We call them “Pennies.”

Kicking in the Pool
Monkey has mixed feelings about the pool. We’re okay here, and splashing water is always fun.

Walking Baby Doll
She has a lot of fun with her “baby doll shouler.”

Say “Happy Birthday!”
This video was taken on my birthday.

Well, if you would just move out my dang way!
Shoes are such an impediment to proper stroller pushing.
