Happy New Year (umm even though it’s Allah February now). What a full month we have been having so far; holy cow!
So let’s start off with Hattie loving on her doggy:
She gets so excited to see her doggies when we get home big quickly gets annoyed with their wet noses up in her grill…don’t we all! Ha.
She is really coming into her own little personality these days and it’s so cute to watch her. She is so sassy! She even has a fake little gaspy whine-sob that she does to get us to feel sorry for her and cuddle her close. I know…already!! I wish I could get a recording of it. It’s like this damsel in distress type of noise. Ha.
She said her first word…twice! And both times it was “dad”…I wonder who the favorite is. Ha
One night she was fighting sleep pretty bad and I was holding her on the couch. My husband comes over to tell her to go to bed and he instantly just makes her smile and giggle or kick her feet. He leans over and says “baby!!” She smiles with her finger in her mouth and says “dad!” We both looked at each other like “holy crap, did you hear her just say dad?!” We thought there’s no way!! So he does it again…”baby” and she goes “hi daddy”.
We both were so tickled to hear her first little words.
Can’t get her to say it on demand yet though so no one will believe us. Ha ha.
She has said it so far one other time. I was holding her in the kitchen and she wasn’t feeling very good. I say “are you hungry baby? Or do your teeth just hurt?” She turns towards the door and cries “dad”. Awww she wanted her daddy to come home. It was the most precious thing.
Mark your calendars ladies & gentlemen…Hattie got her very first tooth on 01/17/2015!
My mom had taken her the night before to watch her overnight & I met them for breakfast the next morning to get her. I go to give her some grits on my finger and “ouch!!” OMG she has a freaking tooth!! I couldn’t believe it!! Our big little girl!
The second one cannot be far behind and she always had her fingers in her mouth, massaging her gums.
We give her those dissolving teething tablets at night to help soothe the pain. That seems to be when it bugs her the most because it’s accompanied with sleepiness.
(No image….can’t get a good one with her always moving! Ha)
But speaking of grandmas house, she got this cute outfit for her and a walker. Her short little legs still don’t reach the ground all the way, but she enjoys her Pooh bear that plays music on it…
All this cuteness and playtime with grandma allowed a much needed date night for my husband & I. It was a lovely evening!!
She can’t get up by herself yet, but she will sit up very well independently now! Such a big girl:
Still not crawling, but any day now!! She gets on her hands & knees and will rock back and forth. She gets so much momentum sometimes that she will just kind of face plant it. Ha ha. Silly girl.
