Smiles and Laughs....

Who knew that a wipe could be so much fun??? I was making faces the whole time too and towards the end, I started making faces and noises so when you hear the zerbert at the end, just know it was me and not her making fun things in her diaper!!! Oh... remember to go to the bottom and turn off the music from the list player!

A few pics from the past week...

Little Miss Chayse has become Little Miss Independent! She is learning something new every day now and it just cracks me up! She is sitting solo, holding her own sippy cup (yes, a sippy cup!), she is pushing up to her knees but is not crawling around yet... she is just growing growing growing. Nathan had her in the bathroom the other night and she was looking at herself in the mirror... she put her hands all over the mirror while talking and laughing at herself. Two days later as I was walking towards her bathroom, I saw these tiny hand prints in the reflection and it hit me that there is A BABY IN OUR HOUSE!!! It was one of those surreal moments that catches you totally of guard. It is hard to explain but it made my heart smile, and made my eyes tear up!

Anyhow, on a funny note... Chayse has learned to look out the bumper of her bed and peek. She waits for someone to come in the room and BOING! She sticks that little head up and smiles so big as if to say HEY! It is sooooo stinking cute and really funny. I will try to snag a few pics of her doing it.

The count is at 2!!

The first one is out where you can really see it now and right beside it her other front tooth has finally broken the in! Two teeth in one week! How lucky can one gal be!

6 month stats on a growing girl!

At Birth: 7 lbs 14 oz, 20.5 inches
At 2 months: 11 lbs 10 oz (60%), 22.5 inches (45%)
At 4 months: 14 lbs 3 oz (50%), 24.75 inches (60%)
At 6 months: 15 lbs 7 oz (30%), 26.25 inches (60%)

I will share this with you... Chayse was a busy body this morning while we were there and her Dr. said well, it is no wonder she is a skinny little thing because she moves all the time... she is is burning off everything she eats!

New Bath!

Well, Chayse has gotten to big for her little green bath tub... It is sad because that little green tub has been hers for the last 6 months! Hard to believe she is getting so big but, she is becoming way to active for it now that she is sitting up. So today, we ventured out to get her a new one and boy did she have fun in the tub tonight with it!

Do you see what I see?

There is so much slobber in there that the pictures did not take all that great but, we are getting a tooth! It is on the bottom row, in the center, on her right side (so here it would be the left side in the pictures). It FINALLY came into sight and is sticking up out of her gum but it has not come up all the way. Chayse has been a bit crabby with this tooth... fever, drool, chomping on everything!! And that little tooth is so stinking sharp!! Anyhow, just wanted to share!
BTW, the camera is up and running again so we will be posting pictures pretty regularly again!

She was talking up a storm untill I got the camera out... and then she froze! Oh well, at least you can see her sitting up, and staying up when she moves, ALL BY HERSELF!!!
