All The New Things

We survived Dad's trip out of town.... His first post-baby business trip. I'm so glad that they are few and far between. Megan missed Daddy and was so excited to have him back. She was really enjoying her new Minnie Mouse (his trip was to Orlando/Disney). By the time he got back, I was ready for reinforcements!!!!! Separation Anxiety has hit full swing and it was quite an adventure to get no down time. I have an enormous amount of respect for single moms - what a job that is! Now we are all getting back into the swing of life and Megan is trying to figure out how to crawl. It may be awhile before she's truly mobile, but we are having fun watching all her other firsts! Here are a few photos to show you what I mean.

Learning all about the ever so important sippy cup...

Standing by herself... as long as she remembers to hold onto something.

Learning about the "real world" food. Megan has
this little issue where she really doesn't want to eat table food. Getting her to eat baby food was a real job. Now that she's a pro at stage 1 and stage 2 foods, we are tying to get her to eat bits of food. She will have none of that. She thinks it's fun to play with, but if any of it actually gets in her mouth, she'll stare you down with her infamous "what have you done to me" look. But she loves the flavor or real food - as long as it's not chunky. So to get her used to new flavors, we resorted to the teething feeder. She loves it! Watermelon was a huge hit! Tonight we tried a real banana - she loved it, but lets just say mommy didn't like cleaning out the bag - ick.

Hello, Miss Megan!

Tell your Mommy she's doing a great job on your blog! It's so nice to be able to see what you're up to...and my are you growing! I didn't think it was possible, but you're getting cuter every day!!! And I'm so proud of you for all the new stuff you're learning. Keep working on that new tooth...I can't wait to see it in December with your award-winning smile! Give Mommy and Daddy big loves from Uncle Tony, the kitties and me! Oh, wait...the kitties make Daddy sneeze. You'd better skip the loves from the kitties for Daddy! We love and miss you so much! Counting the days until your visit!
