Edie the Artist

Hi! Remember us? The TrygKerz Family? Sorry for the lack of posts lately. This blog has been a bit neglected. Can I blame summer and it's super-duper busyness? Because I do :)

Yesterday, Edie helped me out with a little project and painted six squares for our rotating art wall. She did a great job!


This morning, I hung up the paintings. She was very proud of her work (and we are very proud of her).

Twenty One Months Old

Holy Moly! I better post a 21 month post before Edie reaches her 22 month mark. Sorry everybody! This should be an indication, however, on how super busy this month has been. But, I think that's just how late spring goes.

Edie, as you may tell from the picture below, is developing her sense of humor quite well. It's been really neat to see her laugh at her own jokes or funny things papa's says or does (passing gas may or may not be one of those things.) We can't wait to see how funny our little squirt will continue to become.

Aside from being funny, she is also pretty good with her words. Last month, she began putting sentences together... her first being "Sit Down, Papa." Since then, the sentences have become more and more complex.

As I said before, this month has been busy. We went to Garrison, N. Dakota for Easter, then, just a couple weeks ago visited Kris' sister Kathy in Columbia, Illinois (that's where the pictures below were taken). It was Edie's first time on an airplane and she was so, so excited. She held onto Ms Puppy nice and tight and did a super great job on the flight. We hope it's one of many big trips we take with our little Edie Pants.

Twenty Months Old

Even more language expansion this month for Edie. She is now regularly putting three words together to form little sentences. She knows what she wants... she knows what she doesn't want... and she's able to let you know exactly what she does or doesn't want to do. My favorite? "Snuggle Bed SimpSims?" (Translation: Mum, Papa, can we go your bedroom? You'll lay down, I'll hop all over the bed and spill your water, and we'll watch an episode of the Simpsons.)

We've had a really long winter this year but over the last few weeks we have finally experienced a bit of a thaw. This has allowed us to go outside a bit more and Edie has discovered her love for water puddles! Luckily, the center of street (which, to be honest, is more like a paved alley) has formed a puddle canal so we have plenty of water to splash around.

The Spring Dress

Happy Snow Day to all of you that live in the Red River Valley (and most of North Dakota). I'm convinced that we upper Midwesterners can handle disappointment better than any other segment of people thanks to our erratic weather. Remember this weekend and earlier this week when it was super, duper, nice outside? Remember when it reached 4o degrees and everything started to melt? Well, here is our house today:
Not so much melting going on. I guess Edie's dream of splashing through huge puddles of water will come true.

Anywho, way back when it was nice out I had the motivation to make Edie a pillow case dress. The fabric (a sheet) and the bias tape were thrift store find so the dress was practically free to make. I think I'll make a whole bunch of these for the summer. They are light and airy and super comfy. Oh, and Edie actually enjoys wearing it!

I also made her "baby" a matching dress.
