How is it July Already?Perhaps its the VERY mild temperatures or perhaps its the fact that we spent July 4th falling asleep before 10, but somehow I can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that it is now July. What happened to June? Isn't it still May?
We survived the trip home from Minnesota with a minimum of grumpy-baby. Plus, I had an inspiration while watching Baby A play happily with the wrapper from her diaper wipes - I encased said wrapper in some scrap fabric, added a few ribbons, and voila! New baby toy!
Baby A continues to thrive - all 18.5 pounds of her! She probably could be crawling right now if she would spend more than a few seconds on the floor. In Baby A's mind, however, there is really only one way to spend one's time... STANDING.
She also finds it acceptable if YOU stand while holding her, and she really appreciates it when Abby shows her which way to go!
While not standing, I've spent my time pureeing baby food...
... making my mom a birthday cake with some of the entire dozen double-yoked eggs I picked up at TJ's...
... and picking out real grown-up furniture that doesn't come un-assembled from a certain Swedish store. (The couch is coming in a few weeks).
Oh, and there has been the occasional lobster-eating, courtesy of my parents. My dad bought Baby A her very own lobster, which (unfortunately) we all had to share since she can't quite crack that shell herself yet...
She's thinking "why is your lobster toy so much bigger than my lobster toy?"
Oh, and in case anyone is keeping score, I'm still plugging along on my dad's 2009 vest... but on size 2 needles, it's slow going!
