Today I'm linking up with Katie for a baby style post.
I attempted to get just a few good photos of her, and apparently I was having too much fun with my camera. I guess it helps that I have a good model. She is walking so well now (as evidenced by the photo collage above) and she makes the cutest little faces and gestures as she goes along.
She is genuinely happy with herself.
I've actually noticed a pattern with Klair and her walking that I find amusing. The first time she took a step? When we were in a room filled with family at my in-laws. The first time she really started taking off on her own (i.e. initiating the walking process without us prompting her) when we had some friends over this past weekend for the Superbowl. Then again tonight when we had the scouts over for den meeting she wanted our attention and walked around the house/living room the whole time. Basically, I'm thinking that this girl thrives off of attention!
For the record, she grabbed that book and sat on her toy box to read all by herself.
She created her own little reading nook!
The teacher in me is jumping for joy.
She is constantly giving hugs and kisses these days,
and her stuffed animals are often the recipients of such affection.
She climbs up on her toy box to look out the window at passing people, bird, cars...anything really. She's very curious about the world and extremely observant.
I can't wait to take her outside more once the weather gets nicer!
Speaking of going outside... It snowed a good deal the last few days and I decided to take Klair out to play. It was actually her first time playing in it. Now, I know what you're thinking. "You live in Utah and you just barely took your daughter to play in the snow? It's... February!" It's not as bad as it sounds though, I promise! We had a weirdly warm and dry November. Then, in December we actually got a lot of snow, but we were constantly sick and it always seemed to coincide with the powder days. Then, January was another pretty dry month around here. Thus, the snowfall in the past few days was the first opportunity we've really had to take her out and throw her in the cold, white, fluffy stuff.
She did surprisingly well. I daresay she loved it!
This little snow bear was in heaven.
It was night time, and we shot this with Sam's phone,
so the quality isn't the greatest...
but I still love the look of pure joy on her face :)
