Being a mommy has brought me so much joy that my heart is beating faster just thinking about it. I get teary eyed thinking about all the love that such a little girl has brought to my life. The last few weeks have been so fun watching her grow up so fast. Allie has mastered eating baby food and loves it all. We have yet to find something that she doesnt like. While my parents were here over New Years Allie got to try chicken for the first time. My mom was positive that she would not like meat, but of course...she loves it! I used my little food mill that grinds up food and gave her some rotisserie chicken today and it was a hit. She can pick up food with her little fingers and feed herself. Her favorite are banana or sweet potato flavored puffs, but she likes crackers too! She decided a few weeks ago that she didnt want to take a bottle anymore. Luckily I am still nursing her, so we have been trying hard to get her to take a cup so eventually she would drink milk out of a cup. I knew that it probably wouldnt work, but I put a little in a cup during lunch and she drank it! I was so proud and hopefully she will keep it up!
I love the way her eyes smile! :)
On to the holidays, I guess I am kinda going backwards... but Christmas was so fun! Allie was just starting to crawl so she loved being able to get the toys she wanted. Michael has been making her practice standing by herself for many months now and she can stand alone and balance herself for about 20 seconds! We grabbed some quick shots by the tree!
She obviously loved eating the bows of presents!
