14 months

Wow we are getting so big! Click on the picture above to see an album.
This past month has been filled with so much adventure. Drew can now be considered a confident walker and he takes off every chance he can get. I see now that once Ella starts walking I am going to be in big trouble. Who knew something so little could be so fast? Drew practices his skills all day. He walks slowly, quickly, quietly, while talking, carrying something, carrying something over his head - you get the picture. I still get a kick out of it. Ella is taking her time - literally. It seems the faster Drew gets, the slower she goes. She will no longer push the walking toy (I think a bad spill spooked her) so she crawls and cruises everywhere. She has begun to stand for a few moments without holding on, but thats as far as she goes. She recently learned the "uh-oh" sequence of dropping something, saying "uh-oh," picking it up, and then standing up. This has occupied her for up to 45 min!
We had a few adventures recently. This past weekend was Nana Vera's 90th Birthday. We went to Foxwoods to celebrate. Ella and Drew were big winners! Then on Sunday we had a surprise party for Nana. It was so much fun. Both babies take a while to warm up to the party scene, but once they get going - watch out! It was a great weekend with lots of family time. We loved playing with Sidney and Luke - and Uncle Mark made us a delicious breakfast. Stay tuned for pics and maybe some video.
Love ya!
