These are long overdue pictures of Shiloah's birthday party! She turned one on Feb 10. As you hopefully can see, her preferred method of eating cake is very different from her sisters'. Hannah's first birthday cake was eaten precisely and neatly, Shiloah's birthday cake was eaten with great joy and most of it ended up in her hair! We love our girls and their differences.

Peekaboo, Shiloah!

I know it's been a while since the last video was posted, and since the last pictures were sent out... I know, I know. My excuse remains the same: with the computer downstairs I hardly ever do anything anymore! But, now that it's getting nicer outside and we can play in the backyard this opens up an entirely new realm of video-posting and picture-sending! No promises, but I'm hopeful.

This video was from lunch today. We had minestrone and Shiloah was so playful after she finished. She spontaneously started playing peekaboo with me, but mostly with herself -- enjoying it immensely! She says a lot of words now, "all done", "fish", "bye mommy/daddy", and lots of other words that get lost in her constant babbling. She loves her big sister and playing with balls and balloons. She also loves reaching for the keyboard I'm typing on! One of the funniest things is how much she loves her Shishaw (Vicki, Corey's mom). We have decided that Shishaw is the human equivalent of blueberries (Shiloah's favorite food). I am merely the chicken nuggets, a vital source of nutrition and comfort, but not blueberries! Shiloah runs to Shishaw squealing with delight, forgetting about her chicken nuggets. Shiloah and Shishaw -- what a mouthful!
