Malia's First Concert


Well sort of. We got free tickets to go to the Newsboys concert - which was on St. Patrick's Day. We knew that we couldn't stay the whole time without throwing Malia completely out of her routine but decided that we could go for a little bit and maybe catch a few songs.

The Newsboys ended up having 3 opening bands so we left long before they took the stage which was unfortunate - especially since it was Michael Tate's (DC Talk) first concert as the lead singer. Historic and we were there - kind of. Haha!

The Park

The other night we took a family trip to our neighborhood park. Malia enjoyed swinging, climbing, and going down the slide.



And for those of you who don't remember what she looked like on her first swing ride back when she was about 6 months - here is an oldie but a goodie! The changes are amazing, don't you think?

Andrew's Wii Birthday

Saturday was Andrew's birthday. It was a milestone for us as it was our first time hosting at our new house.

The big gift (thanks to many generous family contributions) was a Wii. We actually got it about 6 weeks ago (somebody couldn't wait - granted he did wait almost 28 years to have a gaming system of his own!) but some accessories and a new game were received at the party. It is amazing but even Malia has Wii skills. I will have to post a video at a later date.

The birthday boy.

Malia enjoying trying to feed herself ice cream.

At first it seemed as if she liked the ice cream better but she got more and more into the chocolate cake which made me proud.

Pebbles Hair

In the process of moving, Malia's Aunt Kendal watched her a few times. On two of these occasions, Malia got a new hair-do!

We love her hair like this but I have no idea how Kendal got her to sit still/ didn't rip out hair while putting it in. I have tried at least twice and failed miserably so I think the hair-do for now will be reserved for when she hangs out with Aunt Kendal.

Chairs

Ah, where has the time gone. We have been busy, busy moving into our new house. We officially started living her last Saturday and then got internet hooked up on Wednesday night. Unfortunately we didn't have the keyboard for our home computer until this morning. Hopefully the blog drought can end now that we have everything set up!

I did not take many before pictures of our house because it was just dirty and had white walls. I did get a few shots of Malia as we were unpacking though.

Here she is playing with some Cheerios and some mini-tupperware cups. It kept her entertained for quite awhile one day as I was unpacking in the kitchen.

First Word?

Malia has gotten more verbal over the last couple of months but she really doesn't have many words yet. She does say "dis" a lot which we interpret as "this" because she usually says it when pointing to something she wants. But a few days ago, she said a new word.

Watch the first few seconds of this video to hear. Also she gets mad because Andrew takes the Swiffer away from her - this girl loves to clean!
