HAPPY Holiday!
...<>...<>...<>...<>...<>...<>...

Gwen sure is excited about Santa coming!
Hopefully Santas shop is done making her present in time
since he sent us a letter saying it was back ordered!
We wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas
since we didn't get our cards sent out in time.



G
wen is growing so fast and is so smart.
She is starting to say sentences and understands everything.
She is very tall for her age, she looks like she could be three.

We are so blessed to have her since she brightens our day, every day.

Love the Echols Family

More catching up

Here's a couple more pictures of Gwen that I wanted to post





















Gwen's dicovered a new game. Put a bucket on your head and run around. She's pretty good. She hasn't ran into any walls so far.

Catching Up

It's been a long time since we last updated our blog, so here's a summary of some of the things Gwen has been doing this summer.


She's gone blueberry picking with her grandma. Notice the leash, it keeps her from running off.

















She's been to the beach. As you can see beaches in Oregon are very different from beaches in California.





















This is her at Buffalo Wild Wings, celebrating daddy's birthday.














Here is a of video of her playing with her favorite doll.

And like her daddy she's very ticklish.




















So long from the happy family!

Springtime!

This week spring arrived in Portland and we finally had some nice weather. After a grey, wet winter, it was sunny and 72 degrees. Gwen got to go outside to play with Lola in our new yard, and she loved it.

Our kitty looked on jealously while Gwen and Lola played outside











After playing all day Gwen took her bath, where she tried to eat all her bubbles.

It's Party Time!

Gwen's first Birthday
was an exciting day for all of us (probably for us more than her since she seemed a little confused by it all). Her and Grandpa played with the balloons before the party. We went out to eat with the Reasers and the local Chinese restaurant and went to Mom and Dads afterwards for the party. She looked at us very puzzled when we all stood around her and sang. What was that thing with fire? Why was everyone looking at her? Even the cake, she couldn't understand why she could just play with it with her fingers and why was it ok to stick her whole face into it.

Gwen didn't eat much of the cake and then we opened presents.

She got a doll that crawls and giggles and when won't stop kissing it. And she got a bucket of blocks and she loved the container more than anything!
