No baby news, but my first baby is defintely no longer... she wrote her first word today! What a big girl!! She was way less impressed than we were, but we had no idea she could string together letters! Jeff told her what letters to write, but still, it's a word! It was only two days ago that I even knew she could write an "A". Where do they learn this stuff??? Here's a sampling of her work...

She is CRAZY about horses (and unicorns and zebras) right now, so we figured "oat" was a nice indicator of her current stage!
