Standing like a big girl!

Look at Magnolia standing!  We put the legs on the toy that we bought her for Christmas to see if she would stand.  She will actually stand and play with it for a few minutes before her little legs give out.  She also finally rolled over from her back to her tummy yesterday... in her crib!  I went in to check on her before I went to bed and that little squirt was sleeping on her tummy!  I rolled her over, brushed my teeth, went in again and she was on her tummy again!  She did the same thing for her morning nap today too!  She wont show us that she can do it, but now we know the truth!  We are off to Minnesota on Friday so I wont be blogging for about a week... give or take a day or two.  I have gotten panic stricken phone calls when I dont blog for a few days so I just wanted to let everyone know that we will be out of town!

Happy Valentines Day

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day.  It was most definitely the best Valentine's Day I have ever had... and I think Magnolia would agree with me on that one! :)  We surprised David and went to where he was eating lunch.  Magnolia wanted to bring her daddy a bear that she grabbed off the shelf all by herself.  She even personalized the bear by eating his tag while I was doing some other shopping and not paying attention to her!  She also brought her dad his favorite coffee drink.  We also had a first today.  Magnolia sat and played by herself and did not cry when I walked away.  I do believe I even heard her laugh!   I am so lucky that I got to have the loves of my life be my valentines this year!

Doin' laundry

Here is Magnolia helping me do some laundry.  She was such a great little helper. She liked to play in the pile of clothes and play peek-a-boo. Her shirt that she was wearing obviously needed to be in the washer... dirty little girl playing with all the clean clothes?!

World Games

Boise is hosting the 2009 World Games for the Special Olympics.  We went downtown yesterday to go to the figure skating.  Magnolia had a great time.  It was so much fun to see people from countries all over the world.  We watched the skating and then went out and walked around downtown.  The bottom picture is of Magnolia meeting a polar bear... I was way more excited about it than she was!  The olympic torch is in the background.

Check up

Magnolia went to the doctor last week for a check up and shots.  Here are her latest statistics:

Weight: 19.8 lbs (90 percentile)
Height: 27 1/4 in (78 percentile)
Head: 46 cm (so big it is way off the charts)

She was a real trooper with her shots.  They seem to have effected her more than the last couple of times but she is doing great now.
