Here's a little video of Penelope talking during dinnertime. It's amazing how quickly she's starting to say words. She's also saying "eye" while she pokes yours, and "dada" for Matt, and "maa" for Moby (I know you were thinking "Mommy", but that still isn't happening).

The video below shows PP eating dirt. It's completely by chance that I got this shot. I thought I was setting up to take pictures, but didn't realize I had my camera set to video and was actually recording. So, excuse the hiccup - it's louder than I thought.

We have some cute footage of her walking and talking on our video camera, but still need to download and edit. Stay tuned...

Walking & Dancing

video
Here's a short clip of Penelope walking. Friday night, after about 2 hours of sleep, she decided she was ready for more action. We played and got some cute footage of her walking and playing a set with her dad. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Matt! PP and I are so blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for all your gifts and the love and support you give.

Some more from Mimi's visit.

More to come...we finally have some decent video of her walking. I just need to get the video downloaded to the computer. Stay tuned...

Mimi's Visit

video
Mimi came to visit during my Spring Break. Above is a little video clip of PP dancing for her Mimi - super cute! She loves to dance and does so with the smallest encouragement.

We had a wonderful time with Mimi. PP and Mimi re-bonded and enjoy each other's company. They went on lots of walks around the neighborhood and visited with the kids that play in the greenbelt across the street. Mimi got to experience Penelope walking more comfortably on her own and Mimi was the first person PP signed "spider" to (she still loves "The itsy-bitsy spider"). Peeps did lots of her mockingbird sounds with Mimi, and overall had a great time bonding with her Mimi.

Mommy got to sleep a lot, decorate the walls with PP pics, and have some "Cortney" time (I spent an afternoon with a galpal and we got our nails, toes, and eyebrows "done" - it was pure bliss - thank you again, Connie). And Daddy got to work to his heart's content without any worries for his girls.

Thanks, Mimi for all your wonderfulness!
