When did this happen...

Well...I guess it has been over seven days since I posted. Pretty bad when your friends are emailing you to see if you are ok?!? HA We have been really busy lately, as everyone seems to be in the fall. Lots of appointments and juggling.

This morning when I was leaving the house I had a moment of, "When did this happen?" I said good-bye to AnnaKate and she waved good-bye to me. Usually her good-byes must be prompted with a wave or by asking her to wave, but this morning she waved just because I said good-bye. She did is just like she has been doing it for years, when did this happen? Then I noticed that her sippy cup was empty so I asked her to give it to me and she did. When did this happen? We have worked for what seems endless hours practicing signs, waving, talking, singing, eating, playing and walking. It all seems to be coming to together for AnnaKate. She is understanding so much more and it is all really clicking. We always say that we have had a baby for much longer than most people because AnnaKate is so small and still crawling but I do think my baby is no longer a baby!

Enjoy this video of her favorite dare devil game..."Stand up-Fall Down"

That is hilarious! Austin used to (well actually come to think of it he still does) do it as well. He would do it when we'd get him dressed for bed. We'd stand him on his full size bed (for guests-not him!), put his jammies on, and then I'd tell him to lay down. He'd go straight as a board and plop down on the bed. Silly kids!

So cute! I love seeing you and AK! (I'm glad you're ok!)

I couldn't help it, I'm a worrier! AK is adorable in the video (as usual). It seems like so often we wait for things to happen and then it all so changes so fast we almost miss it!

I love the video clip! So precious and fun! I was beginning to wonder why no posts lately...glad you got back to it! :)

She doesn't just fall down, she throws herself backwards! Love it.

Reminds me of a backstroke start, like I used to do only from the block, not my mom's neck, and into water, not the bed. Maybe AnnaKate will be a competitive swimmer someday?

So cute!
I loved seeing your little angel in action and what action! She is a WILD woman.
I have actually started my own Blog. How come yours is so much cuter than mine?

Oh, does that bring back memories! Addie, at age 5, still loves a good dramatic drop. She's a darling girl. Sounds like she's made some decisions about progress lately - hooray for the whole family!
