Rocking chair

Although Matilda no longer uses her chair as a rocker, she loves climbing into her chair to sit and watch Sesame Street.

More hats

Same hat, different day.

Plus slippers!

Sad hat

One too many pics and this is what we get. Such a sad hat. Once I put the camera down, her smiles returned.

Thank you

Besides slippers and Sesame Street (Mati is pointing at the TV), Matilda is thankful for her family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Matilda enjoys wearing a hat from the time she wakes up until bedtime.

Although I think her favorite hat is the pink one from the previous post, here she is wearing my Stroller Strides hat.

Wash, wash

We always wash our hands when we get home.

Mommy & Mati

We don't have many pictures together. I'm usually taking all the photos. I think we are starting to look more alike.

More leaves

Before raking, Mati and I talked about leaves. Previously, she was a bit apprehensive about them.

21 November, 2009


While in Michigan, Matilda helped me rake leaves. They should make one handed rakes.

Mati reads a book while in her peace sign pajamas.

All grown up

About six months ago, Matilda and her friends posed for their first picture together. Today, they are all one year old, more or less. Can you match the baby picture to the toddler pic.

This one

Looks like Matilda has made her choice, until she sees the gourds.

Going up

Matilda mastered the stairs over Halloween. She is great at climbing up.
Over Christmas, we will work on going down.

Shoes on

Matilda now walks over to the door when she wants to go outside. She also hands us her shoes after trying to put them on herself.

Shopping cart

Grandma Smart made Mati a shopping cart cover to keep her comfortable and protect her from germs. She seems to enjoy it!

Grandpa and Grandma Smart took Mati and I to a cider mill, where they also had pumpkins. And gourds. A lot of gourds.

05 November, 2009


Early morning on Halloween, Matilda dressed up as a pumpkin. Notice her pajamas underneath.

This year the costume fit her much better than last year.

There is still room to grow. Maybe Mati will dress up as a pumpkin every Halloween.

Rest in peace

Matilda rests on Missy and Brad's lawn/graveyard.

Hair and eyes

Matilda's curls and big brown eyes were very popular with the family. Curls run in my family though skipped me more or less. Matt and I both have the brown eyes.

While Matilda played with her new toy, I quickly looked over the instructions to see if we could turn the volume down or off. A very important feature.

Great Grandma

While in Michigan, Matilda enjoyed spending time with Great Grandma, Grandma, and Grandpa.

It's difficult to get a family pic with everyone looking at the camera at the same time. Instead, all eyes were on Mati.
