Juliet's Favorite Things

Juliet is a whole different child now that she is walking! She still follows me around and cries to be held sometimes, but not as often- which my back and eardrums are thankful for! With all of the walking comes the falling and she has taken some good spills. But all in all, she has taken off and is doing everything in her power to keep up with the big kids...

On the 4th of July Jules went face first onto the cement in my parents backyard. It was one of those really sad falls where she didn't even try to get up- she just laid there crying until we ran and picked her up. That made it sound like we left her there for awhile- we did not! We were just on the other side of the yard is all, and I don't run very fast anymore:) She was supposed to get her pictures taken the following morning, so we had to reschedule that one,but she recovered faster than I thought she would.

Juliet's favorite place to be is outside. Specifically, if she is outside she loves the dirt! She just has a radar for dirt and will find it no matter what. This works well when Tim is weeding the garden, which is almost a daily chore. She loves to "help" and Tim loves the company. It is really cute to watch.

She has also learned to say "cheese" when you pull out the camera. Saying new words is another of her favorite things. She says "hello" like Scooby Do "ra-rooooh" and it is one of the cuter things I have ever seen!

Gunnison was heaven on earth for Juliet! She could be outside, there was lots of dirt to play in, and she had the undivided attention from Brinley. What more could you need?
