Monday afternoons are the best. While our morning usually consist of running errands around town and the occasional thrift store stop, our afternoons are generally laid back and at home. She often moves from one thing to another very, very, very quickly. Whether it's putting her boots on, drawing, playing with Legos or reading a few good books, she is usually always busy. We have a great time and I really treasure those afternoons.

Since Edie's birth (nearly) eighteen short months ago, I have stayed home from work on Mondays. Currently, I am technically "working from home" on Monday and Fridays and while I do get a lot of work done during nap times and in the evening, it's pretty much impossible to work while Edie is awake. And, to be honest, that is just fine with me.

My cousin's toddler, Brooklyn, came into the studio on Saturday for her 2-year pictures. Of course, I had to bring little Miss Edie Pants so we could (attempt) to get some photos of the two of them together. It was (sorta) successful. Man, two toddlers are exhausting!
Edie trying to give Brooklyn a kiss.
Of course, I took some of just Edie...
Edie, how cute are you? So cute!
Edie, how big are you? So big!
Edie, where's your belly?
Where is your belly?
Where's your nose?

Another month of super growth for Miss Edie. She is becoming much taller and toddlerish and her head seems to have doubled in size, noticeable by the many shirts that will no longer go over her head.
Her language skills are growing and growing with new words every other minute. She is very good at making most of the alphabet sounds with exception of L and V. The letters R (ahhhwr) and Q (Ca-u-ooo) might be the cutest sounds that kid has ever made. And, of course her Minnesota O's are coming along very nicely. Our favorite new words this month? Applesauce, turkey (in reference to her turtle), toast, go (in her finest Fargo accent), MaPa (you can guess), and shower ("shaw-war").
Oh, and tooth count is now up to 10 with those first bottom molars coming through. I expect those top ones will show up within the next month or so.
Over Christmas, Edie gained a new member to her entourage. Mij, a very nice ugly doll, has become a new favorite friend and has joined her puppy and blankies as her constant companions.
