Our little girl is growing up so fast! This week she has become a pro at rolling over from her back to her tummy. Something she rarely did before last week. Now within seconds of laying her on her back she will be on her tummy. We're excited because it's a step in the right direction for crawling. Something she's clearly trying to figure out. She moves around so much while on the floor. I can put her down in one place and 10 minutes later she's playing a few feet away from where I left her and facing the opposite direction! She's also pushing her chest & trunk higher and higher off the ground. It's truly only a matter of time I'm sure. YIKES. We're still working on sitting - it's something she'll do for a little while, but she hasn't perfected it yet, so it's not her favorite. She still prefers to stand up when it comes down to it.
Also this week she finally got her toes in her mouth - she's been trying to do it for weeks but didn't have the grasp control or flexibility. Now it's all I can do to keep her from sucking her big toe at all times.
Her teething has slowed down or at least become less painful (praise.God.), she's still drooling and chewing on things non-stop, but she's only been taking medicine once a day instead of every few hours. So that's great news - we have our happy baby back!
She had a couple first experiences this week too! We went to the Zoo with one of our mama/baby girl friends. Even though Belle really didn't know what she was looking at - she seemed to enjoy herself. She liked checking out the flamingos - probably because of their bright color.
She also had her first experience in the nursery at church! The past few weeks it's been increasingly obvious that she just really wants to play and talk (she's got a killer new noise going on right now that sounds like a screaming dinosaur) and it's impossible for me to focus on what's being taught while I'm holding a baby that doesn't stop moving. Hence the move to the nursery. Though I wasn't there, everyone she was with said she did great! She also napped epically once we got home - so winwin!
We're so proud of our baby girl! She's amazing!
