A friend from work knit Nila this great sweater. This is the third thing she has knit for Nila. As you can see in the two videos below (taken last night)

Nila is becoming quite the character. She is playing more on her own now, she is still quite the little explorer. Sarah says that durring her weekly baby group Nila is always trying to "escape" from the play room into the hallway. Escape is a good word for it since she usually has her head down and is just huffing along at full steam toward her goal of "THE OFFICE" down at the end of the hall. I have been trying to read her a book everynight after her bath and before bed. She really dident like this quite time until I started to hit the pages of the book three times with my hand everytime I finished a page. Now I tap the book page three times, she sits for a second and then does the same telling me I can turn the page.

Not a lot of photos this weekend. I went along with 28 11 to 14 year olds from our churches youth group on a ski trip. We had a great time; I did NOT take any photos though. I was worried about breaking my camera while hauling it around the mountains at high speeds.

I will try to get some current Nila shots tonight.

Life was not good this last week. Nila got sick and started to threw up repeatedly Wednesday night, she got better then Sarah and I got sick Friday at the same time with some gut wrenching stomach / fever thing. It was hard there for awhile. Between Friday at noon and Today at noon I only had 2 crackers to eat. We are all well again now...

Food Please



Nila is loving her food, she is eating again. She will feed herself (or try to) Sometimes some of the food makes it close to her mouth.

Day in Annecy





Sarah did some shopping Saturday in Annecy today (Sales are on so we are rolling the dice for what size Nila will be in later this year) and I took Nila on a hike up the mountain. I hiked up hill for two hours and she slept on my back. We got the baby backpack as a handmedown from some friends and we are loving it. The backpack is small and light. I can move through crowds without a problem and Nila can wack me on the head / play (AKA GRAB AND PULL) with my ears when she gets bored, it is great for everyone.

Our little shopper *VIDEO*

Feet



Nila loves to put her feet on things. She will stand up and then step on her toys, books, her shoes, cloths on the floor, blocks, basically anything she sees. Sometimes she even trys to hoist her leg up and put it on things that are well above her waist. (she is figuring out quickly that this is a no go). The best though is when she is eating at the table. After a while (about 3.42 seconds) she decides that she is to close to the table then pushes away. After she reaches her optimal distance she can now rest her foot on the table while eating.

Sidenote: As you can also see the baby mohawk is still going strong. I think we are going to die it hot pink soon.

Its a hard knock life while learing to walk. I love this photo. A couple of scuffs, a runny nose, red cheeks, and a serious face. She is so so close to walking. She can get a couple of steps in then bites it, we wont count it as official "walking" until she can do four or so steps without using the diaper crash pad.

I will keep you posted.

Nila has this great new trick. She clamps down her lips, and lets NO FOOD PASS. The last couple of days she has become very picky about her food. She waves her hands in furry, clamps down, and tries to bat the spoon away. It is quite theatrical.

Nila Walking


I had to explain the whole 2007 thing to Nila this morning. Since she hasn't even been alive for a year yet I don't know if she grasp everything quite yet. Hope everyone had a great New Year.
