14 Months Going on 14 Years

Today Maizie turned 14 months. Pretty unbelievable. I read a book about Michelangelo awhile back that said that each time he worked on a piece of stone, a living image inside the rock revealed itself to him little by little. It's been amazing to watch our little girl reveal herself to us bit by bit. And this tiny glimpse of the person she will become is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. OK, sap is over. Here's some shots of her being all grown up...

Her first "color". And the last time she actually drew on paper. Her new table is covered with crayon marks. Not to worry--we plan on painting it a glossy chocolate brown.

This is not a pose (since it's pretty impossible to pose a 14 month old). She just really loves her new table and chairs.

Crazy Maizie with the 12 teeth.

Playing at the big kid playground.

And, finally, our piece de resistance (or however you spell that in french). Here is Maizie's new dance. Her hip-shaking ways may be reminiscent to those of you who were there for the "Love Shack Dancing Debacle of 2003". Let's just say we know where she got her moves from. We may have to keep a tight reign on this one...

I think Phillip has been teaching her ... he's been dancing like that even before he could walk. =P
