Yes, I know it has been a while, and no, I have not been stitching.

Ok maybe a little bit in the past few days...I will post some of those WIPS soon.
But for a change of pace here are a few hotos of A for your enjoyment. Hmm really....does anyone want to see these? Oh well tough, I am posting them anyway.

First up we have our first attempt at pigtails. this takes some yelling and squirming (she does not seem to understand that she is the one pulling her hair when she struggles) and it does not last very long, but it is very cute.

Easter 2009

a second photo of her on Easter inspecting a jellybean filled egg. ( which we like!). As you may of gleaned when you noticed she is not wearing pants, we don't do anything big for Easter...Ian works and we have no family close by. (no fancy easter dresses or posed portraits here!) So we did a mini egg hunt after daddy got home from work. Next year if she is walking it will be a bit more fun.

Yes I said IF she is walking. I think Ian and I have given up on having a normal walking child any time soon. We have 1 1/2 months till the neurologists predicted date for walking. and while there is progress it is torturously slow. She will walk well if you hold both her hands. But she seems to have an aversion to using the walls or furniture to hold on to (in parentese: she does not cruise alot) and of course she would rather walk than crawl so that means you have to be at her beck and call if you want her to go anywhere.
It is particularly challenging cause the weather is so nice is when you want to take her to a park and let her run around. I am predicting she will take her first independant steps on the first day it is over 95 degrees and the mosquitos come out

(Thank you to all who suggested a 2nd opinion on this issue, but she is progressing and doing as is just so tiring I have to vent)

I think her version of the terrible 2s has begun this month let me know what you think:

1. acute aversion to anything new...swimming, photos taken, extremely shy around strangers. etc. all of which brings on screaming, crying jags that last until the next meal.

2. screeching at crystal shattering levels when you do not read her mind.
ie walking in the right direction, not bringing her food quickly enough.

All of it makes me want to smack the next person who asks me " So when are you having another?"
