Yesterday I got a letter from Mark's brother Trent who is serving a mission in Pennsylvania. I had just sent him Ivy's Kiddie Kandid pictures and he mentioned that he has yet to see a picture of her smiling! So I figured that's probably the case for most of you. So above is proof that she does, on occasion, smile. She's a happy kid, just not a super smiley one. She's much more serious than Millie ever was. Below is her usual serious (or seriously tired) face.
A couple of weeks ago she learned to use her pointer finger and has been pointing non-stop. Not only does she point at things but she also enjoys exploring things with the finger. Here she is exploring the texture of the chair. Funny girl.
