Sunny Easter Day in Annecy

I even got sunburned a little while reading out in the yard. But first we played with Mélina. I’m not a particularly baby-friendly person (I know virtually nothing about babies except for the fact that I do not want one), but I make an exception for my niece.

I only speak to her in English, so she always looks at me weird. Or it could have been the sunglasses.

She was playing with David’s cell phone, but then became more interested in my camera. The more expensive it is, the more fun it is to drop on the ground!

David trying to get her to walk. She’s only 9 months old. When do these babies normally start walking? And when will she start talking so I can teach her zee English?

    Your niece is very pretty in pink for Easter!

    Early walkers start around 9/10 months, late walkers more like 16 or even a bit more. I think average is about a year +. Mine both started late – about 16 months! Some were alarmed but I was in no hurry — I felt better that they had a little more common sense before starting to run around.

    My niece started walking at about 9-10 months but my cousins child was at about 13 months. Apparently Olive is like a shadow now following my brother all around the house! She doesn’t say much but it getting there.

    She’s adorable. My older nephew started at 9 months- on Christmas day one year, just started walking all over like it was nothing. My younger nephew didn’t start till he was about 16 months- he was a chubby baby, so he had to work for it!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
