Giant wooden spoon = giant multifaceted fun.


on Saturday, July 10, 2010

So. rather than putting up some flowery post about how Ky is getting more like a person every day, and how beautiful the transition is, blah blah blah, I think the best way to summarize the changes is as follows: she's now old enough to have Ani as a soundtrack.

Get up and go

on Monday, June 28, 2010

Right after filming this, we took the upper-level insert out of her pack-and-play. Still...so proud!

Around the house, iPhone-style

on Sunday, June 27, 2010

Here are two slightly longer videos that capture Ky's growing mobility, as well as her complete inability to be a terrifying beastie, which seems to be her aim.  (As a side note, these were both shot and edited on the new iPhone, which is just so cool I could spit.)

Funny faces

on Monday, May 31, 2010

Here's a quick video from yesterday that highlights Ky's current fascination with the Baby In The Mirror (verdict so far: amusing, but less tasty than expected), as well as her recently-developed ability to both travel and make funny faces at the same time. Truly, it is a golden age.

One of two things is happening here: either Ky has learned what peekaboo is about, or the top of Lisa's head is actually hilarious. I'm reserving judgement for now.

Best. Moment. Ever.

iPhone use #3006: Document ludicrous child

on Sunday, March 21, 2010

When I woke up this morning, it was to a very musical serenade from our tiny opera singer.  She had quieted down a bit by the time I was awake enough to take this video, but she's still pretty silly.  Please to enjoy the baby:

I'm looking at the Ky in the mirror (oh, yeah)

on Sunday, March 14, 2010

Well, this is new.  Yesterday, Ky discovered what the mirror was about, and spent some time discussing the discovery with her mirror doppelganger.

Don't Fail Me Now

on Thursday, March 11, 2010

It's not clear why I thought she wouldn't notice her feet until around 6 months (maybe it's that she won't be able to devour them until then), but, well, she found them.

Tiny Axl Rose?

on Tuesday, February 23, 2010

Well, we flew on past another milestone yesterday.   See if you can guess what it is.

It's like she's a person.

on Thursday, February 18, 2010

Well, one of the things that happens when one has a nearly-two-month-old baby is that, apparently, one doesn't know how to summarize her in a satisfying paragraph.  Thus, I'll leave that for a future post, and for the moment, just post this video of Ky that was taken this morning.  This is during her very first interactive play session EVER.  Score.

A witty title -- nah, I'm too tired.

So, developmental milestones mean she doesn't quite sleep as well as you'd think :-).  Nonetheless, we've been enjoying our little mountain climber, or, as she is becoming known, Mrs. Milky.  (She has many skills, but licking her lips after a feeding ain't one of them.)

Proof of Developmental Riot #1

on Saturday, January 30, 2010

This video would have been edited and uploaded sooner, but we had a delightful visit from Aunt Kel and Brad this week.  Yay adoring relatives!  Meanwhile, the riot has continued; we're now working on multi-stage sounds, which makes us sound a little bit like R2-D2.  It's amazing how much more alert she is in general, and specifically how amazing she is at standing practice already.  I'm betting on professional surfer as a career path so far; she's just so well balanced for someone so wee.

Here's the video of her first couple of trips to the play mat, or, to paraphrase her actions in the days since this video was shot, "that place where I can slap and then eat the giraffe."

As always, note that you can play the video at better quality by changing the "360p" setting in the video player to something larger (the button will appear once you start playing the video).  If the video stutters or is choppy at a given setting (1080p, for example), the system can't handle it.  Depending on your computer, you may be able to view versions up to the 1080p video, which would give you maximum babyish excellence.

Developmental Riot #1

on Sunday, January 24, 2010

All day yesterday, Kyla was eating like a maniac -- about twice as often as usual.  We were perplexed.

Then, this morning, she woke up and suddenly knew how to smile (not all that often, but there's no mistaking it this time, definitely social smiles!), was using both feet simultaneously during standing practice, and knew how to negotiate a 180-degree head turn (clumsy, but effective).  It is SUPER exciting, since it's her first real developmental leap.  Go go tiny monkey!  Documentary evidence to follow once I've, you know, taken it.
