Stasiya's first word

Seriously, I think she is saying bird and trying to sign it too in this video. So cute watching her get so excited about the birds outside. I even got a little bird feeder so that we could have more birds around the house to watch.

For some reason the video is not loading correctly so here is the youtube page you can click on to see it.

The girls got their toes painted






Here's a video of the girls talking while letting their toes dry.

Athélie - she got her pony on this weekend

She looks totally different whenever she gets her hair done.

Stasiya's 13 months old!

I can't believe she's a year plus now. This has been a fun month with her learning lots of new things. She's saying "ba" for bird and bee. She waves bye-bye like no one's business everytime she hears someone say bye or Marc or I leave. She really likes playing with blocks and putting things inside other things. She is getting more fiesty with her sister even trying to hit back when sister isn't nice to her. She has "happy" feet. She dances and bounces up and down and moves her little feet which is the cutest little thing. I have to get a video and show you. She's a happy girl when she's not sick which has seemed to be often this winter. Or teething. She's been working on her molars. At least she has lots of new teeth to chew with.

Here's new new birthday photo outfit and location. I was tired of the busy background so I decided to change things up and move the monthly pictures to a new spot.


She wasn't feeling well when I took her picture this morning, but I didn't want to postpone it any longer. Poor Baby.


I attempted to take her birthday pictures with my new camera, which was quite hard since it is quite technical to learn how to use it.

But here's a few of the best pics from our little photoshoot. If you like one of them, just right click and save to your computer. You should be able to print at your favorite place. If you have problems or want me to e-mail the pic instead, just let me know.




Remember this photo from Liz at Yellow Umbrella?

I tried to recreate it. But it's not near as cool.

This one is my favorite.

Marc doesn't like all the naked baby shots. So maybe I need to keep trying.

Here's one more just for fun.
She has a cute little profile.

Girls were cute and matching little bumble bees.

Zoo Day

We went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago while my Mom was in town. It was a beautiful spring day and the girls had lots of fun showing Mimi all the animals.


Our friends Grace and Piper met up with us - here are the two girls looking at this big iguana.

They like to sit on the lions.

Hello Giraffe

Sister Love

Mimi Love

Mama Love

Mom. Daughter. Granddaughters.

The girls weren't sure about the Howler Monkey's when they started howling. Have you heard them? They are SO loud.



Mimi and her girls.

This was Stasiya's first trip to the zoo where she actually noticed the animals and could interact a little more. Yay! She loved the Toucans.
