Of course Mama had fun dressing you up in beach-y attire. ;)
Your grandparents and great-grandparents had so much fun with you the rest of the weekend. We didn't attempt the beach since it was super-crowded -- and you wouldn't have been able to stay out in the sun long anyway... and the pool had a "no-diaper-babies" policy. Your Daddy promised to take you back later this summer and let you play at the beach... I'll make sure he keeps his promise and takes us back!
You are doing really well with your solid foods. You eat applesauce or pears for breakfast and some kind of veggie for supper. So far we've tried apples, pears, peas (you didn't like those!), squash, bananas (mama didn't like changing those!), and sweet potatoes. Sometimes if you are sitting at the table with us, I'll let you taste whatever we're eating (mashed potatoes, lemonade pie, etc.) I love seeing your face when you try something new. You always "chew" it with the most serious look on your face (like you have to think about it for a while) and then you either smirk or make a "nasty face". :)
You love your jumper now. You can stand in it flat-footed and you go to town jumping in it. I said this last month, but you have really, really shown interest in Mickey Mouse! The first time we saw you jumping in your jumper was to the "Hot Dog Dance".
Now we've DVR'd a whole collection of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for you and you get the biggest grin when you see Mickey for the first time on TV. We even went by the toy store this week and got you a little happy...
(Yes, of course, he sings the "Hot Dog Dance"!)
You sat for the first time without any support on May 14th! You are still a little wobbly, but you are getting the hang of it. Later that day was also your first time sitting like a "big girl" in the buggy! It was a big day for you!
