Alyssa woke up pretty early this AM but after some coercing went back to sleep until about 730. We spent a few hours putzing around the house and just kind of ‘hanging out’ before going for our morning walk. She is getting so close to tucking her legs up under her when she crawls. It is a trip to watch each day as she gets *this* much closer. She used to try with the left but always just kind of drag the right. Well, I think the PT is helping, because her right leg is definitely tucking up some. I put her up on her hands and knees today and praised her. She is a total ham and stayed there for quite some time while I played music. We headed out at about 1030 for our walk. She loves being outside. After going for walks for the last 4 days she now sees the stroller and squeals with delight. We did the whole block today and she loved every minute of it. We even got stopped by LDS missionaries and chatted for a bit as she gave them grins.
After our walk, my friend brought over her baby so she could go to school with her older daughter. Alyssa is so funny with her. She wants her to be able to play but being only 8 weeks old… its a bit tough. LOL. However, Alyssa loves to give her kisses on the forehead. They actually napped at the same time. It was pretty miraculous. After they woke up Neil was home and he took over Alyssa duty so I could take care of the baby. Once she headed home, the three of us headed out shopping. It is nice with Alyssa, because I never stress about taking her anywhere. She loves being out. She gives strangers smiles but shys away just enough to where they don’t get in her space.
For dinner tonight Neil gave her beef and vegetable baby food. I swear that girl gets so excited at the sight of food now, you would never know she screeched for a long time when we tried to feed her. When we sat down to eat dinner, she wanted a tostada LOL! Amusing for the simple fact, she doesn’t want to chew! She did however eat some of my avocado and a bit of ground beef. She’s actually starting to embrace texture! It will be fun to see how she does with her cupcake at her birthday party in a few weeks.
Well, pretty uneventful day. However, around here.. we love uneventful! HA!
