Alex and I have been married since August 2005. Alex is in graduate school working towards his Doctorate of Audiology and is a captain in the United States Air Force. I am a full time mom of two beautiful children: Zaylee was born in June 2007 and is a busy, busy, busy girl....but a CUTE one at that and Jack was born in October 2010 and still figuring out how to adjust to this life! =)
Zaylee had a blast playing and rubbing her toes in the sand. Unfortunately, as do most kids, the sand went almost immediately to her mouth--once that happened all was lost with the playing in the sand. She started crying and even after getting fresh water to rinse it out, as soon as I took her back out by the water she would cry. Luckily for us after a couple of hours she forgot and would go back out to the beach with us.
The first picture was taken right off the rocks at the back of the house. The morning tide rises pretty high. The first day it kinda freaked me out because I couldn't believe how close it was to the house! It's really great to watch though!
Here I am 6 months old and doing great! I weigh 15.4 lbs (40-41 percentile), am 25.8 inches tall (54th percentile) and I have a small head (16.5 inches--36th percentile). =)
Zaylee had her doctor appointment on Monday and is doing really good. The doctor said she is healthy and normal and looking good. She is sleeping in her own crib now in her own room. She's been in her crib for 10 days now and is getting better. It started with a 2 1/2 hour screaming session before she fell asleep that first night but is down to 30 minutes or less--which is GREAT! She sleeps anywhere from 3 to 5 hours with the occasional 2 or 6 hour stint. But she still hates being in her crib. As soon as we put her in there and start to walk out of the room she's screaming!
She's standing up next to things now but we still have to be right next to her because her balance is still pretty bad. Spitting and blowing raspberries are a favorite thing to do these days and finds it to be a great way to entertain herself. She hates white grape juice and mashed chicken & chicken broth but loves sweet potatoes and green beans. Aunt Carolyn gave her ice cream which she did like but unfortunately, I am just mean and said no more til she's at least a year old! =)
The first picture, Zaylee was just sitting in her bouncy with a couple of different toys until she dropped them on the floor then she discovered the hanging toys on the seat. She kicked them around for awhile but then decided that they would be a lot more fun if she could grab them and stick them in her mouth. When she couldn't reach them she kept kicking and scooting herself down til she could grab them and then she would use her feet to push off the side of the bouncy trying to get the toys loose. Unfortunately for her she was not successful but it was hilarious for me to watch!
The second picture is self explanatory but just so you know, there wasn't food on the plate yet when we took the picture. Alex was getting ready to dish up his food when she grabbed the plate and started to attack! She loves it when we eat....we love the struggle! =)
