We are pretty sure she is calling Onslow and Pauline (as well as the picture of three cats on the box of cat litter) "kitty". Though, with baby-speak, one cannot me sure. What we do know, is that she uses Mahmahmummum is reference to me. In fact, the most common view I have of Edie Pants is the view you see in this week's picture. As I've mentioned before, our little Edie is very much a Mama's girl... and she is usually attached some how to my leg.

One of Edie's biggest first year milestones was completed this week when she took her first official steps. It was fabulous, and we managed to get it on video. Unfortunately, since those first momentous movements she not taken more that two or three steps. In time, I suppose, we will look back fondly on the days when she simply crawled.

As noted in the previous post, we went out to Minot a couple weekends below to visit family and celebrate the upcoming arrival of baby D. Because of my lack of summer weekends due to my job, we do not visit our family in central North Dakota in the summer very often. So, it was quite a treat to see everybody in the summer (and made hanging out even better as we could do it outside!)
Here are just a few extra pics of our visit.
Edie with Chelsey & Aunt Kim
Matthew and Edie got along very, very well :)
Lots of discussions on pregnancy and parenthood...
Most importantly, Edie was able to meet her Great Uncle Dave and Great Aunt Jean!
Our wonderful niece Dana and her wonderful husband Dave are expecting a baby boy due in July. A couple weekends ago, the TrygKerz family traveled to Minot to visit family and celebrate the upcoming addition.
There is so much love and excitement over baby D and I can't wait to meet the little guy! Oh, and if you'd like to see just a few maternity portraits of Dana, go on over to my photo blog.
This is Dana from the back... yes, she is 8 months pregnant.
Games! Chelsey trying to figure out how round her sister is...
...and, of course, the infamous "what is in this diaper" game. I think Alicia got a kick out of trying to figure it out.
Future Grandma (for the third time) Laurie

Of course, little Miss Edie Pants was given all sorts of love by her cousins and Aunties!
Tuckered out on Aunt Karmie's shoulder...
Edie is one of ten girl cousins (just three boy cousins)... that's a lot of girls! Here she is with Chelsey, Dana, Alicia & Sami.

Edie's first buddy Maggie, born just 17ish hours after our little rascal, is set to move to Iowa at the end of the week. Maggie's mum Penny and I thought it was quite important that we get the two girls together before the big move. It's been awhile since they've hung out... and, for the first time in a long time, Edie was really, really, really bashful. She warmed up a little bit but for the most part did her own thing. Maggie, on the other hand, seems to really enjoy hanging out with another little person.

We took a great trip out to central North Dakota this weekend. Usually, when we visit family near Minot, we drive right through Bismarck. Of course, the "we are almost there" thing doesn't work very well when you have a baby who needs to get out of the car. Luckily, we have some pretty great friends in Bismarck, and I think stopping will be something we always do!
Ashley and Neil had their twins Addison and Carter about five weeks ago. It was great to meet them of the first time, play with nearly 4-year old Kaitlyn, and catch up with Ashley. My friend Kari even stopped by during her lunch break!
Oh, and if you want to see more picture, head over to my photo blog.
