Fun Fact
First time pulling herself up into a standing position 11/29/2009

Very wobbly, but she did it!

Bonnie Claire Seham VanZile Wise learned how to wave on 09/05/2009

Bonnie Claire Seham VanZile Wise's first word was kitty cat ("diddy dat") (06/30/2009)

Thought we might have heard it earlier, but it was on this date at Wild Rumpus Bookstore that we heard her say kitty cat in reference to the store kitties.



Bonnie Claire Seham VanZile Wise's favorite book 05/31/2009

is, "Some of My Best Friends Are Polka-Dot Pigs" by Sara Anderson.  She kicks and squeals when she sees this book, and she can keep focused on the pages reading the book up to four times in a row!  Most other books, she gets bored by page 2.  It is self-published and out of print so if you ever find any used copies for cheap, pick one up for me!  I have a feeling ours will be well worn out very soon.

Bonnie Claire VanZile Wise's first Amtrak ride was on 04/24/2009

We went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for the Spitzer/VanZile baby shower weekend in Wisconsin.  We love riding Amtrak with a baby!  It's much easier than driving 6 hours (not including diaper and feeding stops) in a car.
