Baby Update - 14 Feb. 2010

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody. Time for another baby update. As I type this Elsa is sitting next to me in her mommy's lap, left thumb in her mouth, smiling and jabbering away as she stares unblinkingly at me and grabs my attention with those big blue eyes. In fact, I just snapped this photo...

I have two Valentines this year, and I couldn't be more in love with the both of them.

Things are going well. The weather is finally warming up here in Puebla and the Spring semester at El Pozo is in full swing. We are very busy and a little tired but also happy and challenged and thankful to be a part of all of the great things God is doing down here in so many young lives.

Just finished up a great visit with the grandparents (Edwardses). Those two weeks flew by and it was so fun to watch them goofing off with and loving on their granddaughter.

Still no real words yet, but a couple of weeks ago she did say "mama" very clearly, and then a few days later she looked me straight in the eye and said "dada" - then ten seconds later she said it again! We're pretty sure she doesn't know what she's saying, but she sure does talk a lot, and we feel like real words are just around the corner.

Elsa's fuzzy hair is growing in steadily, but she still looks bald from ten feet away or more. Chewing on her toes is a new favorite hobby. At her last doctor's visit, three weeks ago, she weighed 7.2 kilos and measured 69 centimeters. Overall, she's healthy and happy and growing fast, and we're just trying to enjoy every moment.

Here are the latest photos.

Possibly my favorite photo so far. Love those eyes!

By chance the three of us ended up wearing purple one day. Then Bego stopped by and she was wearing purple, too! Had to take a photo.

Only one foot could reach the ground, but that only lasted a few days! Now she's all-out jumping.

Mirror fun.

Please keep all of these little ones in your prayers. And their parents, too. Thanks!
