Happy 9th Birthday, Eila

Birth Announcement

8 months

It's hard to believe that Eila is already two-thirds of a year old. Now, I think that Eila is around 18 pounds, but I have no real idea, other than she is heavy to carry around all the time. ?Fortunately?, Eila prefers to crawl or walk (holding someone's hands) most places.

She is starting to clap her hands. Mind you, it currently resembles a strange karate chop more than a clap, but it make some noise and is lots of fun.

Eila is beginning to cruise around the table and pull up on plants, TVs, speakers, couches, gates, cribs, even her carseat (when not strapped in).

Changing Eila's diapers are not such an easy task as she tries to roll and fight her way as far as possible from the scene.

She is eating a variety of fruits and vegetables: apricots, avocados, bananas, carrots, green beans, mangoes, nectarines, peas, peaches, plums, prunes, sweet potatoes, zucchini and of course, rice and oatmeal.

As for sleeping, something went wrong here - somehow almost every morning Eila wakes up in her parents bed... We could attribute this to the fact that for a few nights she would scream and scream - possibly from pain associated with teething.

More States, More Eila

Eila has now traveled to Virginia and our nation's capital. Eila has now visited 10% of our great nation. Three states, two commonwealths, and one district.

We had an enjoyable time in DC and there will probably be some Pictures of the Day from our trip soon.

Sorry about the hiatus from new pictures. I'll try to keep up better.

Virginia. We started our first "family vacation" in this state and ended it there too, but spent most of the time in Washington D.C.

Eila learned a lot about her nation's capitol by visiting the significant memorials and monuments. She also gained a wealth of information about science, especially air, space, dinosaurs, and insects during our visits to the Smithsonian. Eila got a little bored in the museums at times, but was alert and looking around at everything much more than anyone would've guessed. The archives and the capitol tour were too much for her and she napped the entire visit.

The hotel offered a wide variety of unexplored and unchartered areas for our curious little one. She found the cords, shoes, cabinets, trash, and closets irresistable.

Everywhere we went, Eila made friends. We can't count the number of people who stopped to smile and say hi. Many people even asked to hold her and tried to play with her. Eila was happy to oblige almost anyone with a huge grin and often even a little chuckle.

During our trip, Eila made big advances. In her crawling skills, she more than doubled her fastest previous time for crossing the room. In pulling up, she practiced without pause in the portacrib and whenever she wasn't tied down. In eating, she stopped spitting food at us!
