chloe: the bigness of big


:15 & counting:

now that many of you may have received our Christmas card, i'll post it here for those that maybe haven't seen it:

chloe is well.

she's currently obsessed with this little ice cream set. it's just plastic bowls, spoons and ice cream mounds, but she spends a lot of time talking to herself as she pretends to eat with the spoon. very curious.

she continues to enjoy reading. animals are still her favorite.

she now likes to hold hands, too. when we're walking on the sidewalk, she'll actually reach up to hold our hand. it's still one of the best feelings in the world.

being the big girl that she is now (just turned 15 months), she often eats at the same time and the same things as us. this is both good and challenging. good, since i don't have to spend as much time making food just for her. hard because it's a mess. the other night i made meatballs and pasta and gave her a bowl. she didn't throw it, but you can imagine the mess. she did enjoy it, though.

she can now identify her nose, bellybutton and sometimes eyes, in spanish! she seems to understand both spanish and english phrases like, "vamos" (let's go), "quieres snack" (you want a snack) or "donde esta" (where is...). if i start to say donde esta, she immediately points to somewhere on her face, trying to show me where a certain body part is.

she totally loves to watch the wii. i'm not sure what to think about that. i guess it's probably better than watching some trash on tv. we don't play that much, but she loves the high pitched sounds and mii characters.

chloe went to the zoo on thursday with jared and his friend bobby. lots of photos.

i know it's sideways, but it's cute and i didn't have time to adjust it.
