Happy Birthday Daddy!

Yesterday was Daddy's 32nd birthday!! Margot always does special things on special days for her Daddy. She crawled for the first time on Father's Day, and yesterday, for Daddy's birthday, she started saying a new word. "Uh oh!" Little uh-oh's are so cute. So now she says Mama, Dada (and Daddy), hi and uh-oh. She says "hi" all the time, in the cutest little voice, sometimes accompanied by a wave. Looove it.
Today Margot and Nash and I sat in a circle passing my cell phone back and forth to eachother, which brought on BIG smiles from Margot. She's also a very social laugher, something which Nash takes full advantage of. Nash and Margot's Grammy was just visiting, and she bought a toy that makes a noise when you throw a block into the giraffe's mouth. Margot figured out quickly how to make the noise sound without bothering with the block. C'mon, babies, let's get to the point. She takes steps when we hold her hands. She loves to feed herself soft foods and loves to eat everything, except egg. Neither of our kids like eggs! And she loooves her Daddy. Starts kicking her feet and squishing up her face and breathing excitedly when she hears him coming. Happy birthday, Ray, we love you.

Standing!


Margot has been pushing up for about the last week. So on a low step she could get herself into a stand. But as of Sunday can also pull herself up! I've had the camera on her non-stop for three days with video rolling waiting for her first pull-up! But of course I missed it. It's so funny to walk around a corner and look at our baby and watch her do something we've never seen her to before. Why why why do they get big so quickly?

Congratulations on your first pull-up, Baby Girl. (I really would have combed your hair if I knew we'd be taking pictures first thing in the morning.)

Creativity Station

It's been a long time since we've been, but I think going to Creativity Station is about to become a part of our rotation. Kids are free to wander, without too much risk of injury. Even Margot mostly had free roam, and lots to do. There is a huge wooden pirate ship with costumes, a puppet theatre, gears, books, trains galore, crafts, a kitchen,beads, things to put together and take apart. The only thing it's missing is a coffee bar.Yaaaar, don't touch me booty!
These cars and trucks are pretty cool, they have magnetic pieces so you can make firetrucks, bulldozers, garbage trucks... the list goes on.
Yay! Love watching them play together.
There are good toys for me here too!
Creativity Station is fun!!!!
