Leggo My Eggo

I gave Gabriella a Blueberry NutriGrain Eggo waffle this morning. Man, like her birthday cake, she couldn't shovel it in fast enough(and this was after she had already eaten a container of Peach YoBaby yogurt). I had to only give her a couple of pieces at a time or she would just keep shoveling. I find that is the way she eats a lot of times. So, I've yet to be able to just give her a hunk of something and let her take bites off of it. She just shoves into her mouth and I worry about her choking. The grocery store here gives kids a free cookie in the bakery and one day I went ahead and took the one they offered. I gave broke off about 1/3 of it and handed it to her. She just started cramming it all in there and I had to take it away. I won't tell you the reaction that got, but I had no choice.

She looks like she's been caught in the act of something here...

Just in case you want a good look.

So far today has been much better. She's had a few little snits, but she had a good nap this morning and has been sleeping for an hr so far this afternoon. Neither nap started out with screaming and so that is a good thing for mommy's nerves. We went to lunch with Grandma and she did very good in her highchair(and last night when mommy and daddy took her out too). Phew. The few times before that had not been such a good experience and I was beginning to wonder if we'd be banished to take-out.

Farrah, does this dress look familiar? It's the one I got for a bargain when we went shopping at the Tommy outlet. Can't pass up a good deal, you know! Her hair looks all greasy in these pics because she is such a head sweater!! Anybody else's babe have that issue??? Sometimes when I get her up from her nap, her hair looks like she just got out of the bath. And it's not because it's hot in the house.

Ooooh, don't you just envy these lips??? I know I do considering I have NONE whatsoever on top and not much more on the bottom.

She's getting really good at squatting and bending over. I don't think it will be terribly long before she takes that first tenative step on her own. She's letting go more and more often.

Hee hee, looks like she has a beer belly in this pic!! Don't worry, only Bing gets a shot at the beer!
