Mute no more

My daughter... Since she was born she has always been quiet. So quiet, my husband (who worries a lot) thought she was a mute. She does cry once in awhile when she's upset, and she can hear. I told him you don't need to worry about that, she'll find her voice some day. This week while he was away for work, Brileigh found her voice. She is a wild women all of the sudden. She wiggles everywhere! And her voice! I wouldn't call it talking, more like shrieking! NONSTOP shrieking. She loves to hear herself. Her brothers on the other hand stare at her in awe, or annoyance (I haven't figured out which yet). When Jeremy came home from his trip it took him only 5 minutes to say, I think I liked her better as a mute! I on the other hand think it is quite cute. She loves to shriek at her toys as she rolls all over the place. The picture below is one of the few times she is quiet these days.

Rylan on the other hand was very happy his sister decided to take a break.

What I've Been Working On
I got my punch needle supplies out the other day. I haven't done any of that for a few months. I think I'm going to mount some designs on fabric covered boxes. This is the first one I've started. I don't know what background color I'm going to do yet. Blue, Cream?

Girl power!!!! Glad she is "telling" you about it. Daddy is too cute but I knew just what he meant. My last child was a late talker but oh boy when he started!!!! Just wait.
Love the pictures, you sure make BEAUTIFUL babies.
Great job with the punch needle. wonderful shading on that pumpkin.

Oh my gosh! Your babies are adorable!
My daughter didn't talk much when she was little. Then, one day, when she was just two years old, she started to read her Dr Suez books. I am serious!! I even had a Kindergarten Teacher, from our church school, come over one night to witness it!

Thanks girls! You know Suzanne I've always thought that she is really contemplating things. She always has a deep in thought look on her face. It's hilarious how the boys just stare at her. Thanks Audrey, I've decided the background is going to be shades of cream with brown swirls.
