We are not crawling yet…but still very, very close. She try's to crawl toward a toy but after awhile decides it is easier for her to low crawl and get the item! It still surprises me when I walk in a room and she is sitting up after I had just seen her rolling on the floor. Today she was studying the objects on the couch wondering how to get to those. Our guess is that shortly after she crawls she will be up and walking.

Yesterday she ate a whole cube of sweet potatoes and I gave her a little more whole milk to drink. I do not think she has developed an opinion on milk yet. I had an amusing thought this morning. If Constance does not start liking solid food asap, she won't get to enjoy any of her 1st birthday cake! If nothing else, maybe I will be able to stick a candle in some yogurt and we can sing "Happy Birthday" to her that way.

We are also researching what the best (affordable) car seat is for Constance. She is about to outgrow her infant car seat. We might have been willing to just let her use that seat till she maximized the weight and height limit but the straps keep messing up on it.

The other day, Constance gave me three slobbery kisses without me prompting her…and she looked quite pleased with herself. It was great. She has also added a new noise to her vocabulary. "Ba."

  1. You brought back a memory for me: Elijah's first birthday he ran a fever, but I set him on the floor with his cake anyway. He just looked at it like "whatever", so I stuck his hands in it...only to see him look with disgust at his hands and then puke on the floor. It was awful!

    She sounds like she's going to be into everything before long. How awesome (and exhausting) that sounds! She's so beautiful. And unprompted sweet kisses? How...sweet! I'm so bad with birthdays..YOU'VE got one coming up too...before I forget HAPPY EXTRA EARLY BIRTHDAY!! When is Constance's again? I need to mark it on my calendar. Give the family hugs for me.

    Miss you,
