Baby Meets Couch

Before now I worried about Lil’ A falling off the couch so I hadn’t put her on the couch by herself. She’s getting better with stuff like that and knows how to crawl off backwards, so now we set her on the couch sometimes. Not to say she hasn’t fallen off and won’t again. Or that she hasn’t swatted at the lamps, ripped up my magazines and attempted to empty the tissue boxes…

…but it’s cute to see her explore the couch, nonetheless.

Cute enough to post 23 photos of her.

To everyone but the Grandmas I say sorry about that.

To the grandmas I say you’re welcome!

Piggies!! - Another Milestone

I think this is one of my favorite milestones… when baby girls can wear pigtails!! For Lil’ A it was about a month ago.

It was as much out of necessity as anything.

I mean, what is a Mama supposed to do with this mop?

I mean, really… WHAT TO DO?!!…

IMG_6673

Seriously. Crazy hair. Ha!

Piggies!!

And one with her fan club, of course.

It’s not the easiest thing I’ve ever done getting them in her hair.

But it’s well worth it!!!

Just when I thought she couldn’t possibly get any cuter…

Sink Bath and Fan Club

I gave Lil’ A a quick bath in the sink a few weeks ago.

Her fan club came swarming.

They just think she’s the best.

They are right.

But they are the best too.

Beauty

Took a few photos the other day of Sweet N in one of her ‘dancing outfits’. This day she was preparing to have friends over to have a ‘ballet class’. It never actually happened, but it was the anticipation of it happening that is most of the fun, right?

She’s just a beauty, inside and out…

Steps

We had a milestone yesterday, folks!

Lil’ A took steps!!!

When the big kids were getting ready for bed with their Daddy, I took A on the balcony to play with the kitchen set. It was a lovely day outside and I just wanted to hang out with her. And then out of nowhere she took a step all by herself! She’s been ready for awhile and so I knew it was coming any day!

I yelled at Mikey, who thought something had gone terribly wrong (sorry honey!) and once relieved that nothing had gone wrong he came back with the appropriate recording devices, along with two small and thrilled cheerleaders who were so proud of their baby sister!

You’d think the third time around it’d be less exciting.

IMG_7225

Not so!

IMG_7227

Just look at her face. Her Mama was so excited, she knew she must have done something great!

IMG_7229

Her motivation was the little red apple sitting on the table (and maybe her jammy-clad bouncing big sister?!).

Seriously, look at my face here. It was so fun! It’s just so wonderful watching babies grow and learn. Especially when you love them so much your heart could just burst.

IMG_7232

Here she goes. Look at that little tongue of determination.

IMG_7233

Made it!

IMG_7234

Happy grin!

She later repeated her feat by taking a step in the bathtub (not recommended for beginning walkers?!) And today she took three steps in a row.

She’s just so stinkin’ precious.
