Anyone can see by that nice little ticker above that I am once again late in posting about Shirley. And once again I only had one post in between this one and the last monthly update on Shirley. But stay tuned. I will have a new easy little recipe up soon. One that has (kinda) brought ice cream back into my life. Anyway, on to Shirley.
This time, I didn't touch up the pictures at all. I am currently taking a free online Photoshop class and I'm spending so much of my free time watching those lessons that I just don't have time to fix these up. I just need to get them on here. I don't have a baby book yet, so this is kind of my only way right now to remember how Shirley is developing. And yes, probably only family and a few close friends care but why am I apologizing? Look at that cute face!
Attacking her dog. Shirley has become much more aware of her toys this month. She's finally playing with them!
And she's beginning to sit up with help. She actually does pretty good balancing with no help, not even from a boppy pillow, for about ten seconds maybe.
But toppling is still the norm.
The classic picture with her dog.
Do we really have to do this again?
These days she's putting EVERYTHING into her mouth.
She is just so curious about everything. She is always looking around.
She's also drooling a lot. We think she's teething due to the drooling, biting and other symptoms. But she's still our happy baby!
She's also laughing all the time. The other morning I was sitting in our living room eating my breakfast and I could hear her laughing to herself in her crib. Most mornings I play the piggy game with her toes and I have been waiting for her to laugh when I say "Whee whee whee whee whee, all the way home" as I tickle her. She finally did it today!
I know I say it every time, but I just love her! I can't imagine wanting to do anything else than stay at home and be her mom. I can't believe I get to call it my job! I thank God for her every day and for the privilege of being her mom. I also pray daily that God would save her at a young age and give her a love for Him and a desire to serve Him with her life.
