34 Weeks Old!
Another great fun-filled week. We visited with friends & family. Grandma Cathy came to visit, so we took a road trip to Sedona, the Grand Canyon & Flagstaff. Taylor took her first dip in Oak Creek as well.
Some of the big news this week...Taylor is getting up on all fours and starting to crawl. She can lift her body and reach real hard for something she wants and push with her toes to move forward a little. I fear Speedy Gonzales crawling is just around the corner. She's already getting into as much as she can. She is so curious. Loves being outside and looking around. Taylor spent her first 4th of July in the pool honing her swimming skills, then out to watch fireworks at our friends Kelly & Jose's. Taylor watched the fireworks in awe. She would even let out a giggle after some.
Taylor finds the baby in the mirror hilarious. She grabs for the camera when she sees herself in it. She also has a cute admiration for babies and kids. Taylor recognizes babies/kids vs. adults. She gets a big smile as if she wants to meet and talk to them. She's so social.
She recognizes when it's time to eat when I grab her bib. She loves mangos and cantaloupe. She can almost sit up on her own. I sit her up and she'll last for half a minute before tipping over.
Last night she was staring at our pictures of OZ & I. I grabbed the 8x10 I have framed in our room and she would pat OZ's face, then look at me as if to say, "That's my papa!" This morning when we woke up she saw the picture and was trying to get to it across the bed. So cute.
She is still sleeping in bed with me, which contributes to mama not getting very good sleep. She was in the bassinet, but I moved it out of our room when we got her crib. We're working on getting familiar with the crib and her room. Spending more time in there and napping in the crib. Also hoping to cut out the middle of the night feeding soon. Wish us luck.
Until next week. Click here for pictures from this week.
