A Day in the Life... (part 2)

Rebekah's favorite hobby seems to be climbing into small spaces, so much so that it deserved it's own post. We think it has something to do w/ her refusal to be born naturally a little over a year ago--she absolutely refused to leave Kristie's belly.

We've wondered how she could put this "skill" to good use later in life to support her parents--submariner? coal miner? magician's assistant?

We have included a lot of pics of the various items Rebekah has climbed into, but know there are many more where those came from.

Party 2010

At her party a couple weeks ago, we had a lot of friends, food, and fun all around. Rebekah was a little overwhelmed by the people and by all the toys she got.

We had to have a toy box specially made in anticipation of the gifts that we suspected were coming her way.

We had a special "smash" cake made for her, but our thoughtful little girl just poked at the cake, which didn't make for thrilling video--she rarely performs on cue at this age.

Our Little Leprechaun

We'd like to give the impression that Rebekah, who I'm sure has some Irish blood flowing through her veins from somewhere back in the day, is always a sweet little creature who kids love to see on their cereal boxes.

At times she gets quiet, though, and her mood turns more...

disagreeable, or...

Still As Sweet

One month later, the Roberts family is still as excited as we were in early February when the New Orleans Saints won their first Super Bowl over the Indianapolis Colts. The video below chronicles our experiences before and during the game, as well as Kristie and James' exciting (and cold) time at the Celebration Parade on Feb. 9th.

Rebekah and the Bear (3/7/10)

Here Rebekah was the day we brought her home from the hospital--so quiet and sweet,

so tiny and bald.

And here she is a year later, so much more awake and so much more attentive,

but just as bald.

The previously planned posts for today have been preempted by the fact that Rebekah has started walking. We knew she had the ability to do so, but she finally convinced herself. If you don't believe us, possibly thinking the above photo is doctored, we've attached the following video:

Practice Run

Since we were away from home on Rebekah's birthday, we had a little Practice Run where we were staying. Rebekah has plenty of toys, so we mainly wanted to see how she would do with the cake at her actual party. The pictures speak for themselves.

One Year Old

... or 12 months, if you prefer. Can't believe we don't have to count in months anymore, although I think we have a few more months to do so.

We're not at home, so her Bear picture will have to be delayed a couple days, but we wanted to take this chance to celebrate Rebekah's First Birthday!

Rebekah entered the world at 11:42 AM on March 2, 2009:

Here she is precisely one year later, at 11:42 AM on March 2, 2010:

(still screaming)

(now knows how to talk on a cell phone)

Notice any other similarities or differences?
