Peep 7 1/2 months old...

Monday, January 25, 2010

This little girl is a constant source of joy to her dad and me. What a character (click here to see her on a soapbox). She is doing a low crawl, still working on her regular crawl. She has figured out her pincer grasp and thinks puffs are the bees knees. She has gotten very cuddly lately so I get to cuddle her before naps and bedtimes and it is the best.

She's got one tooth on the top and three more about to pop and she's been a bit miserable today, poor little thing. Last night she was on quite a soapbox while her dad was giving her dinner. See above link. :D

We went to the zoo yesterday and Peep loved it. She was doing her usual, hanging out the side of the backpack to see around us as we walked. Here are a few things we saw!

Peep had a lot to say to these kangaroos sunning themselves, but they didn't pay a lick of attention.

The other Sumatran tiger was licking this one's head a minute before. Too cute.

In the Peek-A-Boo tree.

Lil monkey. I forget what kind, but they were too cute.


And more meerkats, checking out the outdoors.

Winter Wonder - WHAT THE HECK!

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

All that gorgeous pristine snow...  And then!!

Hubs got the snow cat out and we drove all over and now it is less winter wonderland and more "what the heck was in your yard?"

Peep liked it, round 2 made her fall asleep.

January 2010!!

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas (or Happy whatever holiday you celebrate!) and a fun New Year's Eve.  

Random moments with Peep in the last couple months...

Picking her up in the night to feed her and she says "Eeep!  huh uh huh uh huh uh grwww"

Picking her up in the morning and she hugs my head.

Picking her up in the morning and she comes at me mouth open like she's gonna latch on my neck - HUNGRY!

Discovering squealing and doing it ALL DAY LONG, progressively getting louder and louder.

Scooting to the side one night to get a toy and then getting up on one knee to scoot too the side the next day, in front of the parents as teachers lady.  She thought Peep might crawl right there and then!  Not so far, but she is getting up on all fours and she almost did an army crawl yesterday.

Doing her funny chuckle when you get her belly.

Raising her eyebrows when you talk to her.

Sitting up all on her own.  She was close for a while and then one day she just could do it.

Waving at me (she did it 3 times in a row after I waved at her).

She is growing and changing so fast, it's unbelievable...  What a little wonder she is.  :)
