Tessa is walking!!

Actually she is running, but I have been so delinquent in posting that this clip just shows her taking a few of her first steps. This isn't a great video in that it is fuzzy, but I was running to try and catch her first steps on video. Now she may be running away from you, like when you are trying to change a diaper or if it is time to go inside. However, she is so happy to be able to keep up with the big kids that she is mostly just running - all the time. She is running to go play outside, running to get in the bath, running to keep up with the kids, and sometimes just running around in circles. We love the sound of her pudgy feet padding along the ground! At any rate, she is on the move!

Those sneaky leprechauns.....

Those leprechauns are pretty sneaky. Each year the kids are sure they will catch them, but so for no such luck. Each year they put out their shoes by their doors in hopes of a leprechaun filling their shoes with candy. They also wake up and hurry and rush to look in the mirror because if the leprechaun kisses your cheek then it leaves a shamrock on your cheek (for most of the kids this is a smear of green by the time the morning comes around, but it is evidence of a kiss nonetheless). This year that crazy leprechaun also dyed the milk green. Here is Sammy displaying all the evidence of the busy leprechaun. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
