Monster Version 1.9

Smashing Tomatoes

One year and nine months.

Little smashing hand

This is the month that we will remember as the Wow Month.

Many times a day, more than we can count...
we look at one another to make sure we weren't hearing or seeing things.
Did our monster really just do that??


There are so many "big-kid" moments...
Playing chase at the playground.
Telling a long story, complete with hand gestures.
Singing songs from the backseat.
Dancing to music only you hear.
Talking on the phone.
Reading out loud from your books.
Handing out hugs and kisses.

Remains of Tomatoes

There are also just as many of these moments where we think...
Where did she go?
What was that noise?
Why did she do that?
Who did she learn that from?
How did she get up there?
When did she get so big?

Eva Monster

In one word... amazing.
