Some Easter Fun

So I realized it had been awhile since I posted to the blog. I have some fun pictures, but I really want to tell all of you how silly our wonderful daughter is. Often when she's lying on her back, she'll start flapping both arms like she's trying to take off. If I pretend to eat her fingers or her toes, she just starts giggling hysterically. Very contagious.

It's also really cool to see how quickly she's growing up. Every day when I come home from work, I'm half expecting Vanessa to say Daddy, run up to the door, and give me a big hug on my leg. ;) She's really mobile now. She can crawl slowly all around the room, can walk with support from Mommy or Daddy, and can pull herself to standing. Must babyproof house faster....

She's also really interested in what you're saying. Story time has become very exciting for her, especially if silly sound effects are involved. She loves it when we sing to her which means she must not have developed her sense of pitch yet. I'm pretty sure she knows her name is Vanessa and that we're Mommy and Daddy. Grandma, Grandpa, and Nana are close. Oh, and she definitely knows banana (her favorite real food).

We went over to my parent's house for Easter.
We actually managed to get one picture of the three of us.

Here Vanessa shows off to Nana how she can walk with a little bit of help from Mommy.

Poor sleepy Vanessa is about to get attacked by...

The incredible hugging Nana, aka Nana Banana!

Vanessa wasn't so happy with Lily barking to say hi. Poor Vanessa!

Vanessa is thinking very hard about making a silly face for the camera...

But she settles for a smile instead.
