How Tall Is Vivian?

If you ask her pediatrician, Vivian is 31 inches tall and weighs 21 lbs.

If you ask Vivian (Wie gross ist Vivian?), the answer is pretty self-explanatory (Sooo gross!).


If you look at the pants her Omi sent her, she still has a bit of growing to do.


Or, you just put a big sweater over it.


And add a few more layers to dress her for winter. :)

Books

Vivian loves books. Mostly, she just turns the pages. Sometimes, we read them to her. A couple of days ago, I put her in her high-chair while I made breakfast for her. The first couple of the books I had given her thudded on the floor within seconds. But she kept the third one and started reading it. Too cute!

One Small Step for Mankind ...

... several wobbly steps for Vivian!!!

This evening*, Vivian stood up by herself and clapped (drawn in by the music for a commercial on the TV that was on). When I called Will to watch and stood her up again, she stood there, slightly wavering and then took several steps. Needless to say she got a lot of claps and cheers from her parents! We then sat down on the floor and had her walk back and forth between us a few times. Just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. And it wasn't. You go, girl! :)

*Ms Lisa at Daycare had mentioned on Thursday that Vivian had taken about three steps, but we chose to ignore that one since we hadn't seen it. :) And how considerate of Vivian to wait until both parents were watching her this evening. Or was she just trying to make sure she had an audience?

Ready - Steady - Attack!

Just a couple of quick ones ... it's late. I think Vivian liked her blueberry muffin. She even ate a bite or two :)




Typical

Just as her one-year warranty expires do we find out that some of her sleeping-parts appear to be broken. Good thing she's so darn cute! :)

Photos from Vivian's birthday to come this evening, assuming she goes to sleep at a decent hour (read: before 11pm) tonight.
