Oh My

She's trying to walk. I guess they call it "cruising." She's lunging from one piece of furniture to the next - Miss Independant. She falls down, she gets back up. She cannot stand to be on the ground for long periods of time - she has to pull herself up and she's a little crazy about it now. I cannot believe things are moving this fast.

Where'd my baby go? She is so big - so independant, so fast and quick. She is such a happy baby. She has some seriously fussy times lately, but overall, she's really a very happy girl.

Looking for a catchy title

I was going to write a post about my adventures in using a cold-waxing kit on my bikini line (disaster), but before I got to the computer I started watching an ER rerun about when the med students or whomever did a rotation in the NICU. I was heartbroken watching the families have victories and devastation and knowing that many people - even some of my friends - have had days and weeks of not knowing... suddenly my sticky, yet still hairy bikini line didn't seem as funny. I was incredibly thankful for my very healthy baby.

The Fuss is very fussy today - as has become her norm lately. She's going through a phase - she's learning and developing so fast that it's hard for her to handle, I think. She's been trying to pull up for a week and today suddenly she was able to do it and even occasionally sit back down, though mostly she would just scream for me to come help her once she was done with the standing. I also think she might be getting yet another tooth (she has 2 in case I hadn't mentioned this already).

I made my first batch of baby food today. Avacado. Looks like guac, but I guess that's about right. :)

I've been trying to introduce more table foods to her, but she's still not chewing very much. My aunt made this amazing chicken salad the other day (and I'm not a big chicken salad kind of girl) and I was giving her some little bites - she was in love.

I called in to work today - I was supposed to do the 1-5:30 shift but she didn't sleep well this morning and was so fussy and started to have a bit of a breakdown around noon and I didn't get her down for a nap until 12:30, so... It didn't work on Tuesday, I couldn't handle that again today.

Daddy Fuss won some great tickets to the Bucs game this week and convinced me to go. (My first professional football game - I'm becoming quite the sports fan!) We got a babysitter and had a blast. And the Bucs won! Yay!
