And there she goes...again




And There She Goes Again from Ali Edwards on Vimeo.


It's good times around here. Yes, indeed. 


Can you guess one of my most favorite parts in this video? 


She is almost 11 months old and getting closer and closer each day to that next big milestone. She is the happiest, most joy-filled, bright-eyed little girl. And so, so funny. She loves to eat and makes constant mmmmmmmmm noises bite after bite. She's especially interested in anything anyone else is eating and gets a little indignant when we deny her repeated requests to share. She's really a fearless eater (and yes, it's likely I am just a tad more sensitive to the whole food issue because of a certain almost-eight-year-old who also lives under this very same roof) and I love that about her.  


Watching her personality emerge has been really good entertainment. The kind that warms your heart and makes you remember all that is good and wonderful in the world. We laugh and giggle and support and blow spit bubbles and redirect and snuggle and pinch cheeks and say "watch this" over and over again.

    Ali, I love that video, what an adorable family you have.
    I am proclaiming 2010 as my year of ME.
    Yes, a return to me. Finding me. Taking care of me. Up until now I have devoted myself to my two small children and somehow in the mix, I'd forgotten to take care of me - not only my physical appearance but everything in between.
    2010 is the year I take care of me and rediscover my likes, my style, my everything that encompasses me.
    To assist me in my quest, I've signed up for the Mondo Beyondo course with Jen Lemen and Andrea Scher. Rediscovering my dreams, and making them real.
    Here's to a healthy, happy, prosperous 2010 to you and yours.
    best,
    Francesca

    So sweet!! Yay Anna! My 14 month old, Megan, sat beside me and clapped for her, too. Don't you just love this stage? Simon is such a doll- such a good big brother. Enjoy these moments, Ali! Thanks for sharing. :)

    Awww bless! That is so cute. I have a little girl who is now 15 months old and she does the 'mmmmmm'ing while shes eating. Its almost as if she's singing to her food. I've never seen or heard of any other baby doing that until now. Certainly my older one didn't do that! My Mom swears she's the only child in the world who does it, but now I can safely tell her that she's not the only one... she's normal! LOL. She's just started walking too and I'm treasuring every minute of it. For some reason I don't remember this stage with my first one!

    Lol...to me she wasn't asking for a little help, she saw her brother with something to eat in his hand and was asking for some of it. :) Thanks for sharing the video. That stage goes way too fast. My DD will be turning four next month and it seems like only yesterday she was that little. Enjoy it! :-D

    I cannot believe she's big enough to walk. I'd say walking age was my favorite, but it's not true. I seem to love all the ages.

    I really can't say what would be your favorite part but I think it is so cute when your son runs into the other room and she reaches her wee hand for his. sniff*sniff* so sweet!

    Wonderful! I think your favorite part is after Simon cheers for her. He leaves the room and she turns to look for him. She can't wait to join him!
