Well, here's the bimonthly blog post with Shirley's update. :) She is at the age where she can hold her number nicely now. At least for a few seconds! So every month, whenever I take pictures of Shirley, most of them turn out except the ones with her dog. I figured out that he's throwing off the white balance! Anyway, thankfully a few managed to turn out.
Shirley loves her daddy! They have a lot of fun together going on "roller coasters" and making funny faces and sounds.
Every day Shirley and I read some books together. I brought out a few of my favorites recently. They are a little old for her. She much prefers baby Einstein books, but she'll listen to these for a couple minutes at least.
I love my little snuggle bug. This doesn't happen too often. Only when she's really tired, but I try to soak in those moments!
I love giving her kisses. Sometimes it makes her laugh. She's making a lot more cooing sounds, but not so much of the "ba, ya, da, ma" sounds yet. Hopefully soon.
This month, Shirley learned how to roll over from her back to her stomach. I guess the more common thing is for babies to roll from their stomach to their back first but she doesn't do much of that. It's made it much easier at nighttime though. She immediately rolls to her stomach and sleeps that way the whole night. No more swaddling for this girlie!
She definitely loves to grab things now...
...and stick them in her mouth!
We love you!
