Phone Cam Vacation Pix and Walking Flix
To celebrate finally getting over our various sicknesses, we went out to dinner the other night some friends who were visiting. Afterwards, we walked around a bit. Pippa really is getting the hang of walking, and seemed to like walking on the grass. She also really liked to walk to the planters and sniff the flowers.
Here is a link to some grainy videos from the cell phone camera showing just how good she's getting at walking:

Hi, dog, Mama, Papa/Dada, up, please, light, what's that, nose, cheese, more, shoes, "Go, go, go!" (this is a cheer for the Tour de France and now whenever she sees a bicycle she says it), teddy, boom, banana, bye bye, all done, night-night, Oscar, Cabar, milk, cheese, ball, down (as in get down), down (as in to the dogs for them to go down), duck, book, truck (her favorite word right now), no, eye, bird, pop (usually used for bubbles), pat-pat (what you do to dogs), car, shake, Kix (a cereal), Cheerios, cracker, Pippa, cat, pineapple, Annalise (a friend of hers), key, Auntie.
46 words. Crazy. She also makes animal sounds -- elephant, fish, snake, dog. I couldn't even begin to make a list of the words she now understands -- she can follow tons of directions (whether she chooses to is another story) and clearly understands at least 1/2-2/3 of what James and I say to her... if not more.
This is the first chair she learned to climb into. I wasn't quick enough w/ the camera to get her climbing into it (she's a fast little bugger). Apparently it's her reading chair -- she likes to push the blanket and pillow into a nest, grab a book and read to herself. Notice the book is upside down.

Pippa the baby sitter
I can't tell if this looks like Pippa is helping watch the twins,
or if she just got done knocking them over like bowling pins....

Danny, over at the Stinehelfer Blog posted a link to a place where you can feed in a photo of yourself and get it to turn you into a character from the Simpsons.
Here's the result:
This made me remember a couple other cartoon versions of me that I had kicking around on my hard drive:
This ends the interruption of your usual programming.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled "All Pippa and Rowan-- All the Time" content.
Pippa loves bananas
... but her mama doesn't really love bananas.
(listen for the faint commentary in the background noise from this vid...)
(these are all pretty grainy, cuz they're from the cell phone)
