What to muse about today?

Standing Tall!

Lookie who pulled herself up today!  With no help at all.  Up until today, she’s always pulled up on me, or someone, who gave a little bit of help, moving a hand to give her better traction, better leverage.  Up until today, she’s tried to pull up, but wasn’t able to get all the way.  Today, she succeeded.

Then stood there, playing with her sister’s toys for about 10 minutes.  I let her.  By the end, her legs were quivering from the exertion.    I think she left some drool on her sister’s creepy scout doll.  She was so proud of herself.

Five minutes after that, she crawled.  Forward.

After that morning nap, she got herself back up to a sitting position from a “superman” belly on the floor.

So many milestones in one day.  This would explain some of the crawling around, fitful sleep she’s been doing lately.  She “crawls” around the crib in her sleep, trying to roll over, stand, move forward.  Then she gets lost and cries.  Silly girl.

Now, all we need are the teeth to finish cutting through.  Both bottom teeth are there, just below the surface, little white Chicklets.  They’re not hindering her eating, oh no!  But they are interfering with her nursing.  And that’s just no fun for me, even though I haven’t been taking the Fenugreek lately to increase  supply.

I would also like her to say “mama” to me.  Not just say it when I’m not there, or on the other side of the room.  She can, but she won’t say it to me.  Still.

But for now, the babies are sleeping.  And it’s snowing outside.  But it’s warm inside and I have a snuggly blanket.
