Maria turns two!

Here are some recent pictures of Maria and her 2nd birthday party! She is growing! She's been a late bloomer as regards talking...probably due to the fact that Esperance speaks French with her...but now she's talking more and more. She likes to repeat words we say and she gives lots of orders like "sit down", "pick me up", and "don't do that" :o) I pointed out the moon to her the other night and now she says, "The moon!" every time she sees the sun...Science isn't the strong suit in our household :o) We finally got Internet at our house last month, so maybe I should become a blogger again...It will be a challenge to find out if I still have any thoughts of my own which don't revolve around my 2-year-old!

Sandra Lynn's Photography: World Beat Festival 2012

Maria has a knack for endearing herself to strangers everywhere we go.  This kind lady took our picture at the World Beat Festival and blogged about it here:

Esperance participated in an African dance group at the festival.  He was definitely a star of the show and showed everyone another facet of his entertaining abilities!  We're used to seeing him up front with a guitar and a microphone, but the dancing was a whole new treat :o)

Easter 2012 pics

FINALLY uploaded recent photos of Maria. She looked like Little Bo Peep on Easter!

She now has 2 new molars (in addition to her 8 front teeth). She's been walking for 2 months and is now getting up to a run. She dances by steering with one arm and turning in circles. Hmmm...gotta go because her diaper fell off.

Fall Photos

Ok, ok, I really am going to finish my 10 days of Congo before the end of the year :o) But for now, more Facebook photos. Here's an album from Maria's 8th month of life and another of Thanksgiving dinner chez l'Ambassadeur. Enjoy!

Maria is now 9 months old, crawling all over the place, and growing her 7th tooth!
