For Your Viewing Pleasure...

A veritable smorgasbord of videos of my cute girlies! Some are kinda long. I just barely found out that you can edit videos in youtube to just put on the good parts, but I was too tired, and anyway I like seeing the whole video :)

Cute laughing baby :)

You think this is just a video of a baby trying to poop ;) Until you see Noelle haahahahahahaahaha

Just moved in. And loving the piggy tails :) Oh, and the dishwasher arrived, which is why I had to end so quickly

Christmas Morning with Noelle

Underwear hat. Also, Noelle loves the garbage truck and we anxiously await its arrival every Thursday.

The reason I love this video is that it shows Noelle figuring out, remembering, and anticipating the timing of the song. Something new for her :)

To go with the pic in the last post, our big girl holding herself up :) That little coughing sound she is making is her "I'm-so-utterly-pleased-with-how-accomplished-I-am" sound :) Cute girl.

Baby Girl Turns 8 Months

Cute bathing beauty! Look at that chubb!

All the Thurman cousins born in the year 2011. Isaac, Soleil, and Lucy :)

Chilling with her Daddy

Baby girl's first Christmas

Love that sweet big smile!

A whole 2/3 of a year! That scary 1-year mark is getting closer and closer, faster and faster. But we are loving watching our little ladybug grow. She is getting taller, though she looks so little standing next to Noelle. And her hair is getting longer too! Though it is still light at the roots, I think it will most definitely be brown. Coming from a family where all of us had blonde hair and blue eyes, it is such a marvel to me to have two little girls with such different coloring. But I love it so much! They are both gorgeous, I think ;)

This month, Soleil had her first Christmas. It was so much fun, and she loved all the excitement. She also got her first tooth about a day after her 7 month birthday. Her 2nd tooth nearly came in the day after her 8 month birthday, but it seemed to put itself on hold and is still just sitting right below the surface. She can clap her hands and wave hi and bye-bye. She loves to say ma-ma, da-da, ba-ba, and hi. Mostly her words are still pretty indiscriminate though. She can hold herself up standing, and can scoot around just a little on her bum. But still no crawling yet :) She loves to wake up in the morning and snuggle in bed with mommy and daddy for a few minutes before we all get up and get breakfast. And one HUGE milestone: She officially sleeps through the night!! Not even waking up to eat anymore. The past couple of weeks she has been sick, so her sleep has been not as great, but I am so happy that she finally sleeps through the night :D She is also very good at picking up small things, like Cheerios, with her thumb and pointer finger-- and shoving them into her mouth as quickly as possible before mommy and daddy have a chance to investigate :) We love our sweet little Soleil so much. We couldn't even imagine life without this little ray of sunshine in it. She loves to gives hugs and kisses. She loves seeing family and friends. And she is so animated and bright and lovely.
