July 2013 - potty trained!

April 9, 2012 - first set of hearing aids/ear molds.  bright purple, bam!  mama’s favorite color must have rubbed off on her…

October 22, 2010 - used her straw sippy cup!  She’s had few attempts but no luck, but she was surprised when the water came up.

September 12, 2010 - Teething top two (see chart in blog)

September 12, 2010 - Pulls herself to a standing position

August 30, 2010 - Bottom two teeth are further along now, think the top ones are coming in now, she’s been awfully fussy lately!  Nothing like ice for her to chew on.  She even crawls faster now.  Sits up on her own.  Yippie!  Seeing some attempts at standing up.

August 23, 2010 - Better with pulling herself up, she would grab our legs, fingers, etc.

August 16, 2010 - saw her laying down on tummy and onto her side, from there, she got herself sitting up. she even had few seconds free standing and few steps here and there, they were pretty wobbly, not enough to consider first steps just yet since my hands were still guiding her.  I also think she prefers sleeping on her belly while sleeping, just like mama!

August 15, 2010 - first slice of watermelon

August 5, 2010 - safe to say she can sit independently

July 22, 2010 - can sit up from recline position

July 10, 2010 - I think it’s safe to consider that she’s mastered the sitting

July 7, 2010 - tasted plums and she loved it!

July 2, 2010 - tasted sweet potato!  Seems to like it too!

June 29, 2010 - continues to grab a lot of things around her!  No crawling in sight, maybe straight to standing/walking rather than crawling?  She is doing a lot better with sitting these days.  She leans further in to reach for things too.  Her exersaucer is moved up to the next level (it has been in the lowest level).  Flipped to the opposite side of her baby tub and is sitting up for her bath now!  ::tears::  Too much at once!

June 26, 2010 - tasted fresh carrots and seems to like it over store bought carrots.

June 25, 2010 - tasted peas for the first time!

June 14, 2010 - tasted green beans for the first time!

June 12, 2010 - tasted carrots for the first time!  This one got a yucky face; wearing 6-9 size onesies (I can’t remember when she moved to 3-6 size onesies, it was soon after being in size 1 diapers).

June 9, 2010 - sitting up on her own!

June 2, 2010 - expert bottle holder/still working on the tilt part of it with sippy cup

May 29, 2010 - attempts at getting up on all 4’s.  Sits with assitance (she is starting to do well if holding at the hip - she’s stubborn and doesn’t want to sit on her own yet).

May 26, 2010 - tasted pears for the first time!

May 16(?), 2010 - holds her own bottle (not quite grabbing it on her own, but if you give it to her, she’ll hold it).

May 15, 2010 - attempting to “pick” flowers off her burp cloth and surprised it’s not off, holding her own bottle with assistance (putting it in her hands), sitting up better with assistance (it’s gotten better since getting the Bumbo).

May 12, 2010 - first taste of butternut squash. She LOVES it!

May 8, 2010 - blowing lots of raspberries, starting to imitate; tried Bumbo for first time

May 7, 2010 - using her Bumbo for the first time/one year ago today when we found out we were pregnant with Haley.

May 2, 2010 - upgraded to size 2 diapers, increased mobility by rolling (sometimes she forgets she can roll over), assisted standing (or in exersaucer), attempting to sit up on her own (still wobbly or sometimes scares herself).

April, 27, 2010 - Mastering the art of eating from a spoon

March 18, 2010 - took off the canopy that came with the baby bath tub.  She loves her bath and starting to splash!

March 11, 2010 - backward grasshopper movements, getting stronger with using her legs rather than using her arms to prop herself up on floor time.

March 5, 2010 - discovering her feet as she holds them up in the air longer than usual.  pulling things towards her and putting them in her mouth.

March 4, 2010 - still working on: tummy time/floor time to roll from front to back and back to front.  She’s finding her hands a lot more easier these days.  Started to let her sleep the night with her arms out of the swaddle.  Lots of smiling!

March 3, 2010 - we “upgraded” her car seat from the first slot to the second.  ::tears::

February 14, 2010 - more bubbles!

February 12, 2010 - first attempt at rice cereal and spoon use (sort of a fail as the mixture was really runny), I don’t think she was ready for it…

February 10, 2010 - sitting on our laps assisted with good head control or in our arms on our side, I should mention her hair is growing clockwise before I forget and her hair gets too long. :D

February 8, 2010 - smiling a lot more often now and getting good at tracking, she looks at our hands when we sign to her and back at our face when we stop, getting better with thumb-sucking with some thumb action rather than her fist

January 20, 2010 - vertical “air” time on daddy’s chest (for added support) and did well holding her head up but still wobbly with some control, and more tolerable to floor and tummy time.
