Picture Update

I know that I hardly ever post pictures, so . . .
Eric's idea of helping me clean.
Beth learned how to push the step-stool over to where she wants it.
This is how she uses the rocking chair Papa made.
Oh the joy of the park!
She likes to ride where she can see things.
Peek-a-boo.
I can hold on with the best of them.
Sly guy.

Treasure Chests and Easter Dress

We received some great packages from my mom and dad this last week and Eric was VERY excited to open them.
They were treasure chests for the kids that my dad made for them. Beautiful work, thank you Daddy.This is Beth enjoying her treasure chest. Is this indicative of how she views herself?
We told Eric that this is where you put things that are important to you. He immediately ran and gathered up his trains. Surprise, surprise.
Dad and Mom Alleman helped us buy Beth an Easter/birthday dress. Thank you so much guys! Behold the cuteness that is Beth. Love her and despair. (Ryan has to put in his 2 cents).
"Me, cute?"
"I'll pose for pictures, but no autographs!"

Letter Tag - G

My letter tag from Aunt Judy is the letter "G"-Ten favorite things starting with the letter G. Why, Aunt Judy, did you pick G for me? That’s a hard one. I actually had to think.

Good food, really good food
Gospel, not the music
Gentle husband, especially when I’m moody
Genre fiction, love a good book
Giving
Going out as a family
Getting the house clean
Gordon, brother and grandpa
Green thumb
Games

I tag Mary w/ the letter P, Laura w/ the letter S, Darlene w/ the letter M.

12 Month Check Up

"So you really think I'm going to hold still for a shot? Yeah right!"
So the stats are in for Beth after 12 months. She is 29 1/2 inches long, that puts her in the 65%. And she weighs in at a whopping 18.2 pounds, which puts her in the 9%! Good work my little one! (No pun intended.)

Her first view of the decorations we put up.
Birthday waffles.
Kacey and Eric over a pizza dinner.
The bug cake.
Beth and her presents.
And more presents!
The party group.
We gave her the cake.
She tried the cake.
She ATE the cake.
She dumped the cake.
"Oh my gosh, this is so good!"
After getting cleaned up, she's happy.
Meanwhile, Eric is having fun with all of her new toys.

First Steps

Maybe because her birthday is this week Beth was feeling the pressure to start walking. So, tonight, she decided to just do it. Zach and Alison were here to enjoy the moment and give proper applause for Beth. Thanks guys for coming over and spending time with us. This video can speak better for itself than I can, so here is a clip of her first steps.
