bum-bum-bum, here I come

Everywhere. Baby is all over going everywhere now,
and she doesn't care if we're around to help her or not.
I'm loving this practice of independence.

We are thankful for snotty noses and cutting teeth.

fun times had by all

I have had such a fun weekend!
We pretended like we were from the Farm.

Aunt Sister read lots of stories to me...

and I showed her all my tricks, including my new teeth.

wee-wee-wee-wee all the way home

Yesterday during communion one of the kids in church came up to us and asked us if this was the baby who "squealed like a hog". Yes, it was. Although we prefer to think of her as shrieking like a velociraptor.

(And what baby wardrobe is complete without hand-me-down leopard print?)

do you see what I see?

No, not the butternut squash and corn in her nose...
we see a tooth poking through!

the struggle for technology

There's something magical about the controllers,
and baby really wants them.
We forsee a future where things are put up on the mantle...
far, far away from little hands.

i love spinach

The baby who has an aversion to green veggies has now embraced spinach.
Who is this child?

sometimes Mommy lets me eat grass

She's come so far... Baby no longer screams bloody murder when we put her down in the yard. She's actually kicking her feet and waving her arms with complete bliss in the second picture. (And thanks to the magic of photo editing, it looks like our grass is still mostly green!)

a pink nightmare

Unpractical? Yes.
Adorable? ... Jury still out on that one.

rubber ducky, you're the one

This picture best sums up our visit from the Dorks.
We had such a good time crawling all over them in the floor,
and someone was thrilled with her first experience with bubbles.

The Hater got in this morning around 2:30am and the Dorks left for their journey eastward around 3:30am. Baby was up a dozen times during the night last night, and I'm sure she has a sixth sense as to when I finally get the sheets warmed back up and start to drift back to sleep. I bet we'll all be tired today.

But it sure was worth it!

time change

All of our practice this week at staying up later and sleeping in later was for naught this morning when baby decided it was time to get up at 4:30am...
