Week 51

Dear Genevieve,
This week you turned 51 weeks old!
Well the BIGGEST news this week - you started walking! You are slowly getting the confidence to step off by yourself without my prompting. Today on your 51 week birthday you walked a few times all on your own. I can tell you are THRILLED with this new found independence.

You still love your walker though - we are lucky to be having such gorgeous 'winter' weather

But your stroller always draws you back.... MUST walk around the stroller & grab onto the wheels!

Chasing the birds!!! FUN

Happy LadyPracticing walking

We LOVE Manly - love that ocean view

Mama & Baby

Fun on the swings

Daddy's shampoo styling - straight out of Ferris Bueller

You have all of the sudden mastered all of your toys this week too. You put the shapes in the sorter, you place the rings on the stacker and you put the puzzle pieces back. With help, of course, but you totally 'get' how they work now! Such a smart lady :)

I CANNOT believe it's only 1 week until you are 1 year old. WOW. Times flies - what a great year it has been :)

Lots of Love,


  1. Awesome shots!!
    Is Murray nervous at all about the fact that she's getting SO GOOD at pushing around that shopping cart?! I'm just sayin'...

    Love you and thanks for the smiles,
    Auntie Joni

  2. I have watched the walking video's over and over they are fantastic! The picture of 51 weeks is precious and she has grown so much. Miss her more than words could possibly express, thank goodness for the video. Love G. gram

  3. Loved each and every posting that you do. Have a wonderful weekend and a festive and joyous celebration of Genna's 1st year of life! We all feel blessed that we were able to have her home in Minnesota this summer to party with us,too.

    Love and Kisses, Grandma

    G.G.: I agree with you that we miss Genna so much!

  4. Grrrr - it still looks warm in Manly even in winter!! :) Looking forward to the 1 year blog post.
