...during the "Sweat Drips Down my Balls" scene of The Proposal...
...which was only on TV to begin with because I thought Leah was sleeping...
...my baby is a freak.
(But she's VERY cute!!!)
She saw a few big cats.
She discovered that she is not as tall as a polar bear.
We tried to show her the elephants...
And the gorillas...
But she was more interested in...
Really, when you're two and a half months old, a trip to the zoo is more for the parents than the child. Leah was a trooper, especially considering that were a LOT of new experiences for her, and it is reassuring to us as parents that we can still get out and do these things.
It's amazing what nearly a year of waiting will do! Casey and I bought this in July, shortly after finding out we were pregnant. Long before we knew we were having a little girl, we carefully selected this cute little ducky onesie that would suit either gender.
(Sidenote: look how tan and skinny I was!!!)
Almost a year later, we have this...
Yes, Leah is quite an incredible little pumpkin. Daddy and I are amazed daily by how much she grows, both mentally and physically.
*Rolls over quite regularly from her tummy to her back, and occasionally from her back to her tummy.
*Absolutely loves bath time (as do her parents!)
*Smiles often - especially on the changing table - but usually just for mommy and daddy.
*Has no trouble taking the bottle.
*"Stands" on her own - although she can't balance, she loves to support her own weight.
*Has graduated from the newborn diapers into size 1.
*Wears 0-3 or 3 month clothes - except her pants, which she still fits into the newborns (mostly). She got her mommy's short, stocky legs.
*Still has the hiccups every day.
*Does well on outings, but cries every time we get in the car.
*Favorite song: "All American Girl" by Carrie Underwood.
*Favorite book: "The Cat in the Hat"
*Watches "The Wiggles" intently
*Loves to dance, especially to Elton John and The Beach Boys, or just about anything on "Dancing with the Stars."
*Has learned to "crawl" out of her boppy by pushing herself with her legs. She can't quite hold herself up on her arms, but last week, she moved herself from the foot of the bed all the way to where daddy was sitting at the head of the bed. WOW!!!
We can't believe how fast these two months have gone, and how much we continue to grow in love for our sweet baby girl!!
