Flashback to One Year Old Mavry

Going through some older pictures and videos.  It's crazy how much difference a year makes and also interesting to see so much of her personality is the same!a

Mavry's 2nd Birthday Party

In the process of catching up with posts I realized Mavry's 2nd birthday was still waiting to be posted.  She turned two years old on February 6th! We celebrated with a pancake brunch in our yard.  It turned out that Mavry was still recovering from being sick (thus the rather stoic look in her birthday cake picture), but she still enjoyed playing with all the kids who came to celebrate.  Instead of a cake this year, she got a stack of small pancakes with two candles, berry syrup, and whipped cream.  She loves pancakes and was intent on her stack even after we finished singing and gathered for some songs on the guitar.  

 Ummm we did finally take down the Christmas lights sometime after the party.

Mavry Working with Droppers

Eliel: 7 Months

Eliel turned 7 months old last week!
His favorite things are scooting out the front door (he pushes the screen door open) to sun himself on the porch, watching the chickens, and pulling up to standing on whatever he can. 

He is now happily eating egg yolks, liver, avocados and bananas from our yard, stewed carrots, and some butter.  He loves all of it and gets most of it in his mouth from his tray. 

I sent Colin a picture of Eliel pulling up on this toy at the library.  Colin came home that very day with the exact same toy that he had found on Craigslist.  Mavry and Eliel have gotten a lot of good out of it but it is sometimes a source of discord when Eliel pulls up and Mavry tries to get him off of it.
