(5 months till Christmas...in case you are counting!)
She finally seems to have this nursing thing down. Phew! She makes the sign for milk, and sometimes we think she might actually know what she's saying! She still has no interest in "solid" food. Why is it called solid? there is nothing solid about it!
She's very mobile and very active. She twists and scoots and rolls around the room moving from toy to toy. Her legs are constantly moving. We're pretty certain she is practicing for Riverdance. She's getting very close to crawling and has taken a few "steps". I'm trying to figure out some type of a weighted blanket that will keep her down. (with your 2nd child, you want to keep them immobile as long as possible! More movement means I have to pay more attention to what's on the floor!) She rubs her eyes when she is tired, which is adorable!
This is not how Maisy was put down to bed, but she rolled over before we went to get her. This was a really funny moment in Johnny's life. We went into get him up from his nap and he was laying on his stomach, laughing so hard, like he'd done the funniest thing ever. Maisy seems pretty pleased with herself as well! (Here is Johnny the first time he rolled over in his crib!)
We've taken a few trips to the Pacific Science Center. First Johnny went with Momo and then we all went a few weeks later. Johnny insisted we recreate the day he had with Momo and he made us do everything in the same order. We went in the butterfly exhibit and Johnny spent the remainder of the day thinking there was a butterfly stuck in his shoe and kept taking his shoe off to check. (there wasn't!)
Here is Maisy the baby and Maizey the snake! Both seem to be sleeping
