a portrait of my child once a week, every week, in 2014


Your Great Grandma Penny died this week.  She loved you very much and always enjoyed speculating about your potential for red hair.  We went to Michigan to celebrate her with family.  You enjoyed meeting all of Daddy’s Aunts and Uncles and Cousins so much, you just love the attention.  You also loved playing with your cousin Brie’s toys, she has so many!  You especially loved her baby piano, and getting your first real piano lesson from Uncle Bobby.  Your crawling and pulling up is getting to expert level, and you’ve even started to figure out how to get back down without banging your head on the floor.  We can tell when you’re having a lot of teething pain by how you keep your mouth closed a lot, even your smiles keep it closed, so hopefully those teeth will get into position and leave you alone for a while!
