Your Walking!

Mamita, you started taking your first real official steps this evening. Daddy put you down in standing position and called you. And you took 3-4 steps towards him! We were so happy but pretended it was no big deal. He did it again, and again you took about 3 steps. So I've been practicing with you this evening and you keep doing it. You fall on your butt but youve lost the fear now and let go without as much hesitation as before. I'm so proud of you!

Well Princess, soon I will have to be watching your every move even closer. Last night you were able to climb up onto the futon several times. Granted you used your boppy pillow to give you some lift, but you now know the moves it takes to get up. Lifting your right little leg to the top and then pulling yourself up. It helps if mami is laying there so you can hold on to her pants while your doing it too :)

Last night you also slept well. That is two nights now in a row but last night was a really good night. You only woke up around 4 this morning. I felt you sit up. You do that sometimes, you just wake up and sit up and stay there dazed, probably wondering where the heck are you, its dark! I normally hug you right away and lay you back down. So I gave you your "baba" and changed your diaper and back to sleep you went.

You didnt use/cry for your pacifier this past night!

An hour later I heard a neighbor using their saw. How inconsiderate to work on their yard at 5am on a Friday! After daddy went to the gym around 6 I could no longer sleep and here I am, typing away. Come to realize that "saw" noise was coming from our kitchen? Could it be? As I got closer and closer to the fridge I realized the fridge was making the noise! GREAT! Now I know why daddy was going through the fridge before he left. The stupid thing is broke. I better go clean it and cook the frozen meats we have later today. I doubt we will get the darn thing replaced in time to avoid our food getting ruined.

September Updates

Well we have entered Madam N's 11th month. Here is what's new:

  • Yesterday evening she started smacking her tongue against the roof of her mouth. After I noticed it, I would do it and she would immitate. This went on all evening. Cute.

  • She has been pointing for a few weeks now. She will point at her videos or things she sees.

  • One morning, when her dad and I were playing with her, we asked her to bring two toys to us from her toy shelf. Out of ALL her toys, she brought the correct ones to us in the right order!

  • She throws things and grunts (is that the right word?) - like if she were mad. Especially when she no longer wants to eat that item or, like yesterday when I would grab her sock and throw it on the carpet and make the noise, she would pick it up and do the same. So cute, she even makes a "mad" looking face when she grunts.

  • Today, we went to our first play group at the library. There were other mamas and babies. She liked it! I think I will do that every week from now on. Tomorrow we may go work out at the beach with the stroller in another mama group.

Hmmm, i know there are more updates, so I'll have to remember them and post them soon. For now, thats all folks!

Oh we went Halloween shopping today too. We bought Halloween decorations and i also got her some lilac fairy wings that will match her fairy skirt.

Just to dress her up and she can prance around our home with :)

I can't wait till Halloween. Its my baby's week! Her dad always wanted our baby to be born on Halloween and by coincidence she was born that week. We are decorating our place this year :) How fun.

Happy 10th Month Birthday!

My baby turned 10 months yesterday!

How fast! Almost one year! Scary. I can't believe that I took you to Mexico City when you were in your 5th month because 5 months since then have gone by, twice the age you were when I took you. It makes it seem like I took you there not too long after you were born but at the time it felt like you had already been born for a while. I have to say, these last 5 months went by much faster than the first ones. Oh baby your looking more and more like a toddler now!

...was really fricken tall!

Ok, so I'm sort of tripping out with Madam N's third toe. Its long and as tall or slightly taller than her second (index?) toe. She curls her index toe so it makes it look even taller. The tallest of all her little piggies. Her dad doesnt have it. His second toe is actually the longest one.

On mami's side, they go from tall to short to shorter, a common "flow" of toes.

So its not mami's or papi's toe. WT Heck! Cute now, but I hope for her sake it blends in when she grows :)
