Auntie Diane / Thursday, April 22 2010 04:06 PM

It's been awhile since I have checked in on you little Etta, so I enjoyed hearing all about your progress and visits. I can't believe you are going to be 2 years old soon and I STILL haven't had a chance to meet you. I am caring for my sick doggie and limit my traveling, but I am going to figure out how to visit with you soon!! A big hug from me, and know I love you from afar.

Auntie Donna / Sunday, April 11 2010 08:30 AM

Well, between you not updating and me not visiting in a month so we have had quite a time catching up! You have been very very busy little girl! Every minute sounds great (except for the blood taking! I agree ACK! But you gotta keep up with that!!! Your cousins were injured playing soccer last month and I had to go to the hospital for physical therapy almost every day for nearly three weeks...but they are almost all healed so hopefully no more doctors for a while for us either! I have to catch up with your videos...keep em coming...Love ya little one...catch ya laters!

Hi Sweetie: It is so good to get such a detailed update on all of your latest activities and developmental progress. You are able to ROCK everything! I am so proud of you and enjoyed catching up with you on all the new videos Mommy posted. Love you lots and am looking forward to seeing you next week. -- Love, Nana V

18 Month Well-Baby Visit


Nana V / Wednesday, December 16 2009 05:03 AM

Your Mommy is one smart cookie! I think it is wonderful that your thyroid level is perfect. I love your "visit" with the baby in the mirror and all your arm and leg exercises. You certainly know how to put waiting time to good use. Love you lots, Nana

okay, so, I'm walking all ...


Aunt Kimi / Monday, December 7 2009 04:27 PM

I love presents!!!! anyway, Etta you are sooooo adorable and i want to gobble u up!!! you know i take 2-3hr naps whenever i can! so i know how gratifying that is! i love you big girl!!! Cant wait to see you!!! Aunt Kimi

Nana V / Monday, December 7 2009 04:24 AM

Hi Honey, I'm sorry the Man In Red with the White Beard scared the holiday spirit out of you! He does look a bit suspicious in the photos and I'm glad Momma has already taught you NOT to accept candy from strangers. I hope your next experience with the White Bearded Wonder goes more smoothly. I promise that you will eventually come to like him -- alot! But only sit on his lap if Mommy is nearby so she can grab you up if you change your mind. Lots of love, Nana V

Big week for me!!


Dallas / Sunday, November 22 2009 08:34 PM

Just got caught up on a lot of the "happenings" in Etta's world lately. It sounds like once she started walking, she just made up her mind to never stop! You go girl!

uncle kj and aunt lori / Friday, October 9 2009 02:49 PM

Wait to go sweet girl. A pink jeep is perfect for you to be sportin' around. You will love it. Glad you are giving it a chance. Momma is relieved you are giving it a try I am sure. She has some really great ideas for you. love you much.

Lauren / Friday, October 9 2009 01:41 PM

Yay Etta!! (and good job, Momma-that wasn't easy!!) I see many fun walks/stroller rides in your future! Hopefully I can join you for one soon! Love you bunches!

Daddy / Friday, October 9 2009 03:27 AM

Etta, nice job riding in your stroller this evening. I'm very proud of you. Love you.

Nana V / Friday, October 9 2009 12:34 AM

I am SO proud of you honey. Pops and I are really looking forward to being able to push you in your stroller. And, of course, we can't wait to see and squeeze you next weekend! Much love, Nana

Hellooooooooooooo Readers!


Nana V / Tuesday, September 8 2009 12:11 PM

Good Morning Honey, I hope you and Mommy and Daddy had a good Labor Day Weekend. Grandfather and I "labored" all weekend around the house, puttering here and there. It's a new week and I'm sure that will mean new adventures for you. It is hard to believe that you were here just a little over a week ago! Lots of Tuesday love (and Wednesday love and Thursday love, etc.) from your Nana V.

I have a cold!

Happy Belated Birthday, sounds like it was just right. love all of you.

Daddy / Friday, July 24 2009 03:01 AM

Etta, thank you so much for the new watch, Panama shirts and especially the toaster oven. We are going to cook some very yummy foods in the toaster oven. I am very excited about baking a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies for us to share. Love you.

Nancy / Thursday, July 23 2009 11:23 AM

You are correct! Logan's yeast rolls are made of yum! We are glad you all had a wonderful time celebrating your daddy's birthday. Nancy & Rylee

Today I went to the ...


Daddy / Monday, July 13 2009 08:58 PM

Etta, I am very excited about your love for playing in water. :) I know of a few good swimming holes we can play in when you are a little older.



aunt lori and unc. kj / Friday, July 24 2009 07:08 PM

Well, I would have been fussy after a trip like that, but glad you made it safe, and saw some friends along the way. Poor mommy must have been worn out. Looks like a nice visit after that. love you.

Nana V / Thursday, July 9 2009 08:22 PM

Hi Sweetheart: What a BIG trip for you! I'm sorry that you were delayed but am glad that you got to see your friends in Atlanta again so soon. I know how much fun you have with Natalie and Alyssa. Now that you and mommy have had some rest I hope you are giving Lito and Lita lots of hugs. You give the best sugar ever! Take care of mommy and have lots of fun in Panama. Lots of love, Nana V

This week was a lot ...


Happy Father's Day to Daddy ...


So, I'm ONE now! How did THAT happen?


Lita & Lito / Friday, June 12 2009 09:13 PM

Etta, for such a precious one-year old, you sure are busy!!! We don't know how you and your Mom & Dad keep up with everything. We're looking forward to your visit to Panama and we'll try our best to fatten you up with mango and all the other goodies. Hugs and kisses, Lita & Lito

Grandmomma / Friday, June 12 2009 10:53 AM

What a great detailed update in the life of a special little ba, oops, I mean, girl who has blessed us with her presence for a whole year now! Good job to your Momma for keeping us so informed. You keep eating and growing and crawling around pulling plants and things over and just have FUN! Love from your GMM and GDD.

gu kj and ga lori / Wednesday, June 3 2009 02:52 AM

Happy Birthday sweet girl, you are a miracle and a blessing. We hope to see you Sat. at your party. We love you, KJ, Lori and girls

Nana V / Tuesday, June 2 2009 12:53 PM

Happy Birthday Etta! We were all SO excited to meet you and so very glad that you have such a great fighting spirit. In spite of your bumpy introduction into this world, you are pure sugar -- like a big bowl of sugar -- probably because, your very smart mommy knew to eat the Zebra cake. Much love to you, Nana V & Grandfather

Update time!!!


Mom, Happy Mother's Day. Love you :)


Momma / Monday, May 11 2009 12:23 AM

Lita & Lito / Wednesday, May 6 2009 10:27 PM

Wow, Etta. Your days make ours look pretty lazy and slow. You are just zooming along and getting nearer and nearer to your special day. Send us a wish list, as we'll be with Tia Joan & Tio Ed next week and we can go shopping!! Love ya all-sending hugs and kisses. Lita & Lito

Nana V / Monday, May 4 2009 10:30 PM

Etta: You are doing so much and are obviously a very busy bee. Depending on what you want -- it's not time for that pony yet -- maybe all of your grandparents can go in together to get it for you. Perhaps we will buy Mommy and Daddy a year's supply of tissue paper in lots of pretty colors. Just kidding. Ask Mommy to let us know if you need something BIG or lots of little things. Love, Nana V & Grandfather

GMM / Saturday, May 2 2009 11:27 AM

What a great update! So fun to know how your day goes! Can't wait till the birthday party - any hints of what you want for your birthday??? Love, Grandmomma and Granddaddy

sandra sansing / Friday, April 17 2009 01:20 PM

Being a mom or dad when little ones have to get shots is not fun. Etta is so cute and it is really a good thing that she is so aware of what is going on. All the time that you spend with her is so good for her developement. We showed our grandsons all the Baby Mozart and Bach tapes. They certainly got cognative deveopment that my children did not have the opportunity to get. They are too sharp sometimes, they ask so many questions and they get into so many things.They wear this ol Mimi out.

I'm getting SO big!! ...


Today I promised Momma that ...


Nana V & Grandfather / Thursday, April 2 2009 02:50 AM

Hi Sugar, Grandfather and I just checked out your videos -- his first time to see you crawling up the steps after your rattle! (I've watched three video clips several times already.) We are so proud of your progress...and determination to go after what you want! Every time Grandfather sees you he keeps saying cute, c-u-t-e, SO CUTE!!! And you are. We love you and are looking forward to squeezing you next Saturday. -- Nana V & G'father

So.... I've been sick for TWO weeks now!! UGH!


Donna / Wednesday, April 1 2009 01:40 PM

PS. Hope you get over all the sniffles and coughs soon...Spring is right around the corner and you need to be well to catch all that action! LUV YA

Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ / Saturday, March 21 2009 02:49 PM

Get well soon sweet baby and mommy. The trip sounds very cool. That is such a good thing for everyone with common goals and experiences to come together, and how great to meet so many friends in one place. Love you, Aunt Lori and Uncle KJ

I had my nine-month well-baby ...


Rachel Moore Hawkins / Friday, March 6 2009 01:18 PM

Wow, Etta, baby Signs sounds like so much fun! Will learned some of that at his old school when HE was a baby, and we always thought it was so cute. And too exciting that you have a "movie star baby" in your class! (Although I have no doubt that you are TOTALLY cuter! ;) )

I went to a Baby ...

Lita & Lito / Tuesday, February 10 2009 11:30 PM

We look forward to reading the stories, seeing the pictures and we check each and everyday, just to see Etta's cheery little face! We'll see you soon. Hugs and kisses from Panama.
