What We've Been Up To


We had a play date earlier this week and Natalie got to enjoy her first dip in the pool since vacation.  She LOVED it.  She was splishing and splashing all over the place.  The water was a little chilly but the girl didn't mind one bit.  I think she was in there for an hour...and I only made her get out because I was bored...not her.  I'm thinking next summer I definitely need to get my little swimmer a pool.

 

You may recall a certain little one learning how to sit up on her own recently?  Here's some proof.


 

 

 I just can't get over how much she looks like a big girl!  And she's improving everyday.

 We've put the bumpers in her crib now as she's become a rolling machine and keeps trying to reach for things outside her crib when she's on her belly.  Plus, she was banging into the rails like crazy whilst scooting...so it was time.  I think she's settled into her new little routine quite nicely!


 

 


We've been working on crawling here lately.  Natalie's really great about getting up on her hands...and getting up on her knees...just not at the same time.  I know with time she'll figure it all out.  She's starting to get really frustrated when she can't get to where she wants to go though.  Her new way to move is to get up on her knees, push her face into the floor, and basically flop forward.  Not sure how she thought of that...but it works.

  

 Girl is just the love of my life.  I could kiss those little cheekies for hours.
