Esme is 16 months old today. It's her first monthly picture in the new house. I really like the backdrop of our front garden and will try to use it as long as weather permits. She looks like such a big girl in this one. She is now rarely crawling and is getting very fast and agile on her feet. She is also becoming quite the climber (and subsequent faller.) There is a video below of her climbing up the slide at the old house. She really loves crawling all over Parker and getting in his face. It is really cute watching them interact each day.
She is become a bit of a pickier eater. Combine that with a love of throwing food off her high chair and we end of with a mess after every meal. She is babbling and talking a ton. She will try to say just about anything we ask her to. Jimmy was gently scolding her about playing in the toilet, saying "out." She waddled out going "ow, ow, ow." She can get in to just about everything now so we have to keep a close eye on her. Still in 18 month clothing and size 4 diapers.
Some of her favorite toys are the Fisher Price piggy bank, Nemo couch, mom's phone, mom's purse, and anything Parker is currently playing with. She seems to really love the new house, which makes me happy. Welcome home baby bear, we can't wait to celebrate many more milestones here!
