There aren't enough hours in a day... I started waking up a couple of times a night to play. I used to sleep 7 - 10 hours straight, eat, and then pass out for several more hours - for a total of 11 - 12 hours sleep. Now I wake up around 1 and 5 am to practice crawling, calling for my Mommy to keep me company and comfort me if I hit my head. She tries to nurse me back to sleep but I don't want to so I protest. I guess maybe that's why she looks so tired in this picture. I love being with my Mommy!

And the babbling begins

First I said mmm-ba, then a-babababa! Sometimes I mix the sounds together and say maababa. When I made the sound "mama", my Mommy got really excited but I honestly don't understand why. I also started banging my hands up and down. They make a sound!

Catch me if you can!, part deux

Many people have asked my Mommy why they never see me on the Izzy-Cam which was originally pointed into my crib. Dahlings, I'm SOO done exploring my crib! I'm rolling around and scooting everywhere now! Mommy moved the Izzy-Cam to my playmat so you'll have a better chance of catching me! Note me in the first picture playing with my favorite toy of all - the Ikea catalog! or how mesmerized I look watching Baby Mozart in the second!

Update: Izzy-Cam has been turned off indefinitely.

I drink from a sippy cup

I actually prefer licking water out of Mommy's Nalgene, but this will do.

I crawl a couple of steps forward eat! I got it!! I've been making little frog hops. I also love to roll around on Mommy & Daddy's king size bed nonstop for about half an hour! I roll from my back to stomach to back to stomach, then I hit a barrier so I rotate 180 degrees, then scoot a little, and start all over again... back to stomach etc..... My Daddy says that I move just like the Roomba!

Daddy piggyback ride!


I rolled off the bed AGAIN. This time Mommy put pillows all around me while I was napping but I woke up quietly, found a little opening and secretly decided to see what was behind there and then AIYEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

I'm sitting by myself!

I don't fall flat on my face anymore! Now I can play with all the new toys Mommy bought for me. That Gymini was getting so boring!

I feed myself with a spoon

I'm not sure if I like the taste of banana but I like chewing on this spoon.

I take to the pint before the bottle

Daddy gives me my first pint. What's this exciting new beverage?

There is nothing like an ice cold beer on a warm day! I really am as my shirt says "Daddy's Little Girl"!
