Pictures from Grandma and “Bapa”

 - by Gretel

Sorry for the delay in updating.  It’s been a crazy few weeks with lots of activity.  Ilyana has made some neat leaps, including jumping right out of the car at Grandma and Grandpa’s yelling “Bapa! Bapa!” instead of taking a day to warm up.  She’s also counting to three, and saying “eh-phan” when we pass a billboard of an elephant every day.  It’s trying at times with her emerging control issues, but we’re making it through.  Just don’t leave her with a crayon unsupervised…had to clean out of the teeth.

Thanks to Grandma Laurel for the pictures!!


I’m playing at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.

Aren’t I the cutest?

We’re playing in the park now.

The rocks are the best to play with.  Mama wouldn’t let me eat them tho…

I got nice and clean later.  Baths are fun!

I got a drum to play with.  It was nice and loud.

Time to go, woof.  Bai!

More Words

 - by Gretel

Pictures are coming soon – we’ve had a busy few weeks, and haven’t been able to post.  We’re currently experiencing an explosion of words with Ilyana.  Some are things like naming body parts, items of clothing, or toys.  Others are sounds, which she uses to identify things.  (She’s saying ‘moo’ when she sees cows, and ‘woof’ when she sees dogs).  It seems that every day there is something new.

By far the most fun are the phrases.  We’ve got “up please,” “thank you,” and one of her new favorites, “I don’t know.”  (Actually, it’s “I non no,” but you get the idea.)

My favorite is the one she just came up with Thursday morning.  She ran into the dining room as I finished up breakfast and said “Mama, yuv you!”

Can’t beat that :).
