The Smudge Report

I think I've been pretty restrained for a long time now. I mean to say, when did I last show a photo of The Smudge? I took this yesterday. Is she not the sweetest?

Sleeping Beauty

I lifted the next one from Thesha's blog. It was taken on June 26th, after our long flight home from Vancouver.

Snuggling

The girl became and more alert during our hiatus. Although she was beginning to smile then, she now smiles often and freely and begins to try to use her voice. There are a few smiles and a few vocalizations in this clip, but, of course, she tends to clam up as soon as the director yells, "Roll Em." Who knows whether that her first laugh was recorded in this clip or whether it was a complete fluke?

You are quite irrepressible and without shame when it comes to your lovely grandchild!

It will only get better as she finds herself under you guidance.

She is such a cute little girl. For some reason I could not get the video to play- I'll have another try tomorrow (no that's later today I see it's gone midnight).
