Pump that through Powerpoint.

I do not now, nor will I ever (if I have anything to say about it!) know what, "MD5 hash the result" means.

That is all.

Everyone told me that it goes by so quickly.

Up until the last few weeks, I would say that things have been moving along at a comfortable pace. None of the unpleasant phases (such as not sleeping) lasted for too long, yet we feel like we've had plenty of time to enjoy each of the new, wonderful things that Baby Girl (BG) is doing.

Until she became mobile. The changes in her are significant, daily! One day, she's rolling over. The next, she's barrel-rolling around the house. The next, she's commando-crawling. The next, she's doing whatever is within her abilities to chase our Old Dog around the house (!) so that she can pull his toes & ears. Thankfully, he is a very tolerant dog.

She came out with "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba" this past Tuesday. On wednesday, she said it all day long. Both times that she woke up Wednesday night, she looked up at me with her wide, bright eyes, and told me, "Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba". I told her, "No, BG, it's time to sleep." You can guess her response!

Where's my little girl?

3rd tooth is through, 3 more on the way quickly.

When I went in to check on her this morning, she was sleeping on her belly. On Her Belly. This is the child who, 3 weeks ago, fussed if left on her belly for too long. She's over that.

Now I just have to learn not to worry about her sleeping on her belly!

...keep them doggies rollin'...

I thought R was rolling over because she could flip from her front to her back and her back to her front. Now, I understand that "rolling over" means that I will find her on her belly when I go in the feed her in the middle of the night. It means that she will nurse while trying to roll over and to scoot along on her belly. It means that she will not, ever again, stay in the same place that I put her down. It means that we have to rearrange and R-proof our household, so that all those beautiful, tempting cords are hidden away.

It means that my Baby Girl is mobile, and very, very excited about it.

God help us!
