Elspeth is a stepper

As in, she can kinda walk if she wants to. Altho if it's further than about two steps, she just crawls cuz it's faster. =D So yeah, she took her first steps yesterday and I have mixed feelings about it. What happened to my soft little newborn boo? She's getting so big! Also, she's walking already and she doesn't even have any teeth! I guess I was a little too prepared for Average Baby, Elspeth's just too quick for me.

Family reunion = success

I won a door prize!

Everybody was happy, nobody got sick or hurt, fun was had by all. Pictures are now on Flickr. Also yesterday we had a Chibi Posse reunion (Spike is back in town, dropping her brother off at the MTC), so pictures of that too. In related news, I PWN Mark at DDR. This is significant because he pwns me at, well, every other game ever made. Well, maybe not EVERY game, but you get the picture.

Sewing up a storm

Originally uploaded by Driggs family.
In the last week I've mad a onesie, a dress, and a new sling. I'm sewing up a freaking storm! Probably because we've been having a little extra stress lately and I find sewing soothing.

Anyway there're also some new pictures on the Flickr page. Current advice stands at just check there every couple days, as now that we have a DIGITAL CAMERA which I love so very very much that's about how often I'm posting pictures.

In other news, Elspeth can now go from sitting to standing without pulling up on something. Still can't walk yet tho, and still no teeth. She does these milestone things in whatever order she likes I guess...she pulled herself to standing before she crawled too, so I guess skipping around like this is just typical of Elspeth.

Last but not least we leave for the family reunion tomorrow. Yay! I'm so excited we need a break. Especially me needing a break from my email account. Seems like companies have started to scout me out (yay) but it's rather nerve wracking (boo) to have to do as many test translations as I've been doing lately (yay), especially because then I have to deal with rejection letters (boo). I've only had one of those so far tho so it's ok, and it was more of a "we'll write back when we have something that suits your style." Anyway.
