Happy New Year! Happy New Decade too. We were just talking about how at the end of this decade Willow will be 10. Hard to imagine!
Josh and I made a new-decade resolution that I'm excited about. We got a cool book for Christmas that lists 26 different hikes in the Keweenaw. Most of them are shorter, nice hikes to do with Willow. We've resolved to do every hike in the book by 2019. We'll start in the spring.
Willow had a doctor's appointment this week and she is up to 14 pounds, 9 ounces. In between the 5th and 10th percentile for a 7-month old.
Two days after Willow said poo poo on Christmas, she said mama. Too bad she didn't say it two days earlier! Oh well. Here's mama:
That's Josh's sister Janna holding Willow. Janna, Josh's parents, and cousin Joe came into town yesterday. I'll post those pics on the next post.
Last weekend, we brought Willow out (cross country) skiing for the first time. She had a great time! Look at that smile in this picture.
She got an exersaucer for Christmas- the physical therapist said no more jumperoo. The exersaucer is OK as long as she is able to be flat-footed. Even on the lowest notch, she is not able to do that. In this photo we have a folded-up blankie under her feet which turned out to not be high enough. Now we use a big book.
My last picture is my new prized possession: my new shower curtain. I know what you're thinking. A shower curtain is not blog-worthy and it should not be anyone's prized possession. But take a closer look. Our shower isn't a regular shower. Regular shower curtains don't fit on it. When we moved into this house, it came with a custom-made shower curtain. I think the woman who lived here before was crafty. So anyway, we'd been using that shower curtain for years now. Shower curtains aren't meant to be used for years. It was so disgusting. My mom made me this one for Christmas. She's got mad skills. It required a sewing machine and a grommet-maker! Plus, it is made of a non-PVC material so no more toxic chemicals will be leaching into our air! So, thanks mom! I wanted to publicly recognize her because this project took her an entire day. :)
Bye bye to Tat
