1st Birthday Party ~ April 26th, 2007 ~ Skittles had a play date birthday! Four 2-year-old boys, four friends born this last year, & four mommies. "Aunt" Jackie and boys came up from WVa and made her purple princess cake, too!

"miss 2006" takes a birthday taste!

March & April 2007  ~  10.5-11.5 Months Old ~ We didn't take too many pictures the last month, because we were too busy watching her WALK! She took her first real steps March 18th, and by Easter she would no longer crawl!

1st Week of November 2006 ~ 6 Months Old:

Crawling girl on the go - WHOA!
She began sitting up with perfect posture & crawling in straight lines up on her knees across the floor the first week of November! To top that, she began pulling up November 8th!!! She is fully 100% mobile at 6 MONTHS. She surely beat her brother! We'd be freaking out...if we weren't so proud!!!
She's also going after anything she can find to chew on like a piranha; but no teeth, yet.
