Walking, climbing and bouncing!

She won't let anything disturb her, not even four or five families worth of kids running around and causing a warm friday evening ruckus. 


Achievement unlocked!

Pizza as big as her head

She's walking for real

What ought to be here is a picture at least or a video of her walking.

There is one tiny problem with that.

She's moving really fast. Every picture I've taken lately has been a blur. And by the time I get sorted to take a video she's managed to leave the room, eaten a cat, and crawled into a cabinet.

She thinks this is all marvelous fun.

I'll let you know how I feel about it after I take a nap.

The amazing spiderman

So tonight I let Z watch the spiderman movie for the first time. He thought it was 'very very incredibly awesome'. So I guess that means or rad a big hit.
But interestingly while eating a snack before bed, he picked up on one of those 'Yeah but what if' moments. At the very end the sneaky green goblin tries to stab spiderman in the back with his hover board but instead in gets himself. It goes down like this, as the green goblin faces off with spiderman, spiderman jumps out the way and the board gets green goblin and then goes through the wall behind him it is going so fast). Zs "but if" was ..... But even if spiderman hadn't jumped out of the way, the board was going so fast it would have gotten spiderman and then nailed the green goblin too.
Nice observation Z.

We might have a walker on our hands

Doesn't that sound menacing? It is. In fact, it might not matter because it isn't clear she's committed - she hasn't figured out it could be faster yet, so maybe we're safe for a minute.

Anyway, Sunday at the superbowl party one of our friends decided she should probably just help Miriam work it out. And apparently our daughter loves a little encouragement because she was like "Oh, you want me to walk? Like these seven steps where I pause and shimmy my butt? LIKE THIS?"
Too funny.

 Even she probably could have walked in that touchdown.

 (daaaaaaaaaamn.)
