here we are again. it's monthly portrait time on the eames rocker. 22 months.. only 2 more months until she's 2 & i really won't be able to call her my baby girl any more. this portrait business is total madness. getting mirka to sit in the rocker without her singing "see-saw" & rocking it so hard back & forth, that it literally moves across the room, is impossible. funny, but impossible.. and that's without her deciding to climb in and out of it a hundred times, or deciding that it was time to take her shoes off. so these are the best of the bunch, but at least they tell the story i guess. ok. so, what's new? our little gracie girl is still obsessed with hats, but not as much as the muppets.. she asks for elmo at least 50 times a day & to her, with the exception of grover or miss piggy, they are all called elmo. every time kermit is on the screen in the muppet movie, she cries out "elmo", which we always reply "kermit" & she chooses to ignore. i think we'll have to get her a little trampoline soon too because she loves jumping around on the sofa and flinging her legs out from under her so that she bounces on her bum & giggles. my sweet petite. my little papoose. cheeky.
update: the lovely anna from one of my favourite blogs, rummey bears, has got herself a new rocker & is planning on starting a monthly portrait series of her own. i just love the peace sign her little one is flashing us. peace baby bear!
