We are working on posing. Matilda rarely stands still. Here she is saying, "Cheese!" She is then on the move once again with her Michigan bear.

First bicycle

Matilda received her Christmas gift from us a bit early this year. With helmet on, she made her first loop of our apartment.

Realizing that she was probably in more danger wearing her helmet inside, we took it off along with her socks for one more loop.

As of this week, Mati now wears her sleep sack backwards so that she won't take it off after we put her to bed.

Summer and Fall

On one of our last warm days before winter, just two weeks ago, we walked to the park. On the way, we stopped to go up and down the steps of the Octagon House.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Matilda is thankful for her family and friends. She is also thankful for the rocks that she likes climbing near the GG Bridge.

Hope everyone enjoys the big and little things!
