What a Peach!

Peaches has had a really rotten winter,

but she is still a wonderful little girl. We love having her with us every day. Because of her battle with illness this winter she's lost a little weight and is just under 19 pounds. She's 29 inches long and using all her strength and dexterity to start climbing!

Of course, that would have nothing to do with the stellar examples of her older siblings!

One of her favorite things is to play with cell phones, however she's gotten too good at actually using cell phones, so now she has her own little Mickey Mouse cell phone (Happy B-day little one!)

Another love in her life is babies and small animals.

She LOVES them. When I first started watching Ka'lel, she would get so mad that I wouldn't let her "love" him (ie body slam and "pat" with great force.) She's quite a bit more gentle with him now.

She chases Gramma M's dog Charlie around, and he is really good with her...she gets to pet and play with him to her heart's content.

She loves to have things over her head, but not on her head (ie bows, head bands, barrettes etc). The head band in this pic came off two seconds after I took the picture!

She loves to be in the mix with everyone else. She is so patient with her siblings and their sometimes over exuberance with her. She always greets them with huge smiles, sometimes squeals, and always wildly waving arms (she's not much of a "talker" yet)

Here are some more pics of our little Peach from her first year.

You've come a long way, and we're so glad you're with us! Happy Birthday Peaches! We love you!

SO... I have finally had some time to catch up on blogs and take a look at what has been waiting to be finished on my own blog. I saw this little post on several blogs today. you go to your My pictures file, go into your sixth file, and the sixth picture in the file. Post it, blog about it and then tag six people to do the same. I'm not going to tag anyone, since I wasn't tagged. But here's the pic:

Here Peaches is about two months old and she was just cooing for the camera. I remember I kept laughing as I tried to take her picture because she was being so cute!

First Five

So I'm totally stealing this from Beth's blog, but I love this idea...hopefully it will get me outside of myself.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It’ll be done this year. {translation: you may be waiting a little while}
4. You have no clue what it’s going to be … it may be cards, a poem, a bookmark, something yummy or a complete surprise to you (and me!) … who knows? not you, that’s for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
6. Most importantly, you must offer the same deal on your blog - the first 5 people to comment on your blog (or if you do not have a blog, facebook) get something made by YOU!

The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me …

If you’re not the kind of person that wants to make something tangible for others, how about some kind of service for them, any type, any size?

The game is afoot!
