We got a toy for Phoenix to push around to help her learn to walk. It took her a while to get used to it and decide that she likes it, but now she pushes it everywhere, even under the table. She is also getting two more teeth in addition to the top one she just got in. So that will make 5 teeth! I can't believe that she is going to be 1 in less that 2 months! I told Zak today that she doesn't have a baby face anymore. It breaks my heart to know that she wont always be my baby (even though she's still is a baby) but we love her so much and that love grows everyday!
So we had a good Christmas this year. Kind of took it easy. We went to Louisiana for my mom's graduation the week before and spent some time with my family. My grandparents were able to make it and it was great to see them. We stayed here for Christmas and had dinner at Zak's parents house. We got some great family pictures and some of Phoenix playing under the tree. Phoenix started getting another tooth last week. Its her third, and its on the top. Check back because I will be putting a video up of hr clapping just as soon as I can get one. :) Love you all and I hope the holidays were great for you!
So its been a while since I put things on the blog and I'm sorry. These are just some cute pics we took of her. There's some of her trying to crawl and just hanging out. The one with the bandana is my favorite. I went to New Orleans with my two sisters and my bro-in-law and I forgot a sun hat so we went to one of the stores and all we could find was a bandana. It worked out great. Zak was trying to make it look like she was standing on her own but she made a really silly face so I couldn't resist putting it up. Lastly, I just really liked the dress and wanted to take a picture of her.
We decided to go to the beach on a whim a couple weekends ago. We were just kind of bored and it was only 10 a.m. I think once we were there for a while Phoenix started to like it. At first we waded out to the water with her and dipped her feet in a couple times. She just studied everything and didn't make a sound. Then we went to the shore and sat down with her. I don't know if it was the water rushing up on her or what but there were a few times when she didn't seem to like it very much which surprised me because she always splashes around in the tub and has a blast. But then she started to realize that everything was ok. There were a couple times when she tried to grab the water. It was too cute!!! You can see it in the last picture. We didn't stay long because lets face it; you can't be at the beach and have fun for too long with a 5 month old. But it was fun while it lasted!
So I was putting Phoenix to bed for the night and she woke up right when I put her down. I turned around and she started making noise so I looked back at her. When I saw her, she had turned over to her back so I didn't actually see her roll over. So tonight I decided to video her and see if she would do it again. It took her less than two minutes to roll over!!! But of course Zak came in the room and he distracted me and when I looked back at her she had just rolled over. So again I didn't actually see it when it happened, but this time.....I got it on video!
I'm mother to a beautiful baby girl and wife to a great guy. Zak and I met in 1998 and were married in Sept 2006. 2 1/2 years later we had our baby girl. I love every minute of being a wife and a mother. I don't know what I would do without either one of them. they are my life!
