I started this blog one year ago this month. Initially the entire reason for starting it was to share pics and everyday happenings with family and friends that lived out of town. I have been amazed at how many blog friends I have made that share a common interest of scrapbooking and/or raising a family. So, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you. Thank You for taking a few minutes out of your day to come by. Whether I know you in real life or in "virtual" life, it means a lot that you visit.
Natalie will be 10 months old on Monday. Her 1st birthday is quickly approaching. Any tips on how to slow time down? :) So here's what's going on with her: Her 2nd tooth is coming in. Cousin Taylor spotted it when he was with us earlier this week. She's trying lots more table foods and beginning to not like her baby food so much. Some of the surprising things she's liked are mushrooms and olives. She really likes mac and cheese, especially the EasyMac microwavable kind. We discovered last night she loves peas, which is odd because she just won't eat baby food peas.
She's moving around like a champ. She still crawls around on her stomach, but she's gotten a lot faster at it. And if I go into the kitchen from our living room, it's only a matter of seconds before she's followed me in there. She even figured out how to crawl through/underneath her rocker chair that I had put up as a barrier.
In the mornings I usually put her in her exersaucer so I can grab a shower. She loves watching telletubbies, Little Einstein, or Mickey Mouse clubhouse while she plays in the saucer. She's the most interactive with the telletubbies though. She laughs and babbles back at them and even reaches for them. She had just started saying uh-oh right before she saw telletubbies for the first time. Uh-Oh is about the only word I understand from the telletubbies, and she repeats it everytime one of them say it.
She likes being read to, but usually bangs on the book while you're trying to read it. Funny how babies like to pat everything. And she also wants to turn the pages before your done, and sometimes we read the book backwards, depending on which way she turns the page.
I knew I always wanted to stay at home whenever we had children. I just never knew how rewarding it would be.
Have a great weekend!
