I've been working hard the last few days and improving my abilities. I can roll really well (even with my huge cloth diapers). I've even gotten the hang of rolling from my tummy to my back. I love to push up with my arms and can almost get on all fours. My pelvis definitely gets some air. I can also sit on my own reasonably well. My tummy works well as a pivot point so I can turn around in circles on the floor to get to all my different toys. This moving stuff is fun!Mommy tried to get a picture of me when I was really high in the air. This is the best she's gotten so far. This also shows off her favorite part of me. My chin! It's the cutest thing in the world. She loves it so much that I think she wants to eat it. That makes me giggle.Now that Mommy has a bigger kitchen, she has more room for me to keep her company. I love to sit on the counter and watch her work. She loves to take breaks to give me kisses and make me giggle. It's really a win, win situation.Can you tell I was good to Mommy last night? I slept from 8:30 until 4am, ate quickly, then slept until 8:45. I woke up happy as can be. Daddy brought me over to Nana and Papa's house (along with Mina) so now Mommy can blog in peace and get my room prettier. Some cool mirrors arrived today so I bet there will be something on my walls soon.

Daddy and Mommy are going to start their own exercise in a couple of days. They're going to do P90X together and get all tough and stuff. I can't wait to see their muscles!

On the Move

I've learned so much in the last couple of weeks. I started out by doing some halfhearted sky diving attempts. Soon after, I was rolling onto my belly every chance I got.Mommy brought me with her everywhere she went during the move so I got to snuggle in the big bed while we were surrounded by boxes. It was super fun having Mommy and Daddy all to myself.Once we got to the new house, I got to try out all sorts of new toys. The doorway jumper is fun.I prefer moving on my own though. I've learned to sit (sort of).I'm so proud of myself!It's very interesting to see the world from a different level.I caused my mother some grief during the move (starting with the nursing strike that occurred the week before the move officially began). One day while Mommy unpacked, I hung out with Grandma. She held me the whole day while I either slept or screamed. Fun times. I'm better now (except at bedtime sometimes, like while Mommy is attempting to blog).My teeth are sort of bothering me so Mommy let me suck on some ice. It was a hit.Now I can really push my arms and raise my head high. I'd love to be able to get up and crawl.My new crib is great too. It's so much prettier and more comfortable than the pack 'n play.Hello!Mommy has learned something new in the last couple of weeks too. She thought she was incapable of frying eggs without them turning out badly. It turns out that she just had a bad pan and stove and it's all better now. The simple things in life...The new/old toys just keep on getting pulled out in the new house. It's great!Mommy snuggled me up outside while we waited for Daddy to come home to us on Friday. Serious business.Grandpa spent a bunch of evenings with us and he knows just how I like to be held. Haha!So that's my update. I can roll, sit, laugh, and cause people grief occasionally. Plus, I'm cute.

This would have been a happier blog entry if Mommy hadn't had to listen to me yell at her or Daddy the whole time she was typing. Ugh.

Getting Better

I had to go to the doctor again this week because I wasn't acting like my normal self. I refused to nurse off of Mommy and was generally miserable (along with everyone else that was around me). Sure enough, one of my ears was infected. I'm nursing again (grudgingly at times) and much happier again. Mommy tried to get a picture of me when I was being really grumpy. This was the result. Haha!I've been joining Mina in her crib after she wakes up from her naps. She plays with my ears and I play with her toys. It works for us.I love playing with her blanket.We were both wearing cow diapers so Mommy snapped a picture.Speaking of diapers, I'm wearing disposables now because of the big move and it's really made a difference for me. I can roll both directions without my ginormous butt getting in the way. That isn't reason enough for Mommy to consider switching so I'd better get good at rolling while I'm still in paper diapers. I'm pretty darn strong so I think I can meet that challenge. I also discovered my feet this morning. They're delicious.

During the move I'll be sticking with Mommy. I'll have to report back to Mina and try out her bed one of these nights. I probably won't tell her about that though 'cause she's a little territorial. I've promised Mommy that I'll let her sleep and that I'll eat well and entertain myself this week. Last night I didn't let anyone sleep because I had toots in a major way, but I'm feeling better now....hopefully. Talk to you guys once the excitement dies down and Mommy is back online.
