Now, of top of crawling expertly, she can pull herself to standing on almost anything.....she can get down safely from standing by falling flat on her bum without tipping over.......she can go from all fours to sitting up without help......and just as of yesterday, this seven and a half month old is climbing the stairs. Yes, you read correctly. I was at my church choreographing a dance with some ladies for a fundraiser and looked down after a couple seconds and couldn't remember if I had put her on the first step, then I realized I hadn't. I put her back on the floor and, sure enough, up she climbed. I had to scrape by jaw up off the floor. She's had a couple "bonks" here and there but it will only help her learn. She keeps lighting up my life each day. She loves spending time in front of the mirror talking to herself and giving herself kisses too.
Signing out for now......hope ya'll are having a fabby week thus far! Thanks for stopping by!

:: We dined on Chicken Cordon Bleu, asparagus, mushroom alfredo rice and garden salad and an amazing Sex In A Pan for dessert. We also enjoyed two kinds of cider from a local cidery (that Trevor and I enjoyed dinner at on Valentine's Day ::

Oh my......this girl is progressing much too fast for me! She can't even sit up unsupervised yet and now all she wants to do it stand. Try and put her on her bum and before you know it shes crawling into my lap trying to pull herself up. I took this video this morning so that Grampie and Grammie and all Denay's family on the mainland can see what a big girl she is!

:: Later on, we dropped the baby off at Oma and Opa's (thanks again mom and dad) and we headed out for dinner with our friends from our young married group at a cidery south of town. We had such a great evening and ended the night with R&R and Horton Hears A Who ::

The Review - LOVE LOVE LOVE it. My washing machine broke down for a day (mid-cycle I might add) a couple weeks ago so I wound up at my mom's to finish my laundry and just for kicks, threw in some fabric softener, something I've never used. While I did not like the smell of it, the clothes did come out feeling softer. So next time I was grocery shopping I spent a good 15 minutes in the detergent section smelling, and then re-smelling, every kind of fabric softener and this was the only one that didn't make me totally nauseous. Next time I did laundry I put some in and wow. It isn't overpowering but just enough for the clothes to smell fresh and it sure makes them soft. And I think it was almost the only kind that wasn't "Mountain Fresh" or "Clean Linen" or "Spring Air" scented, which I thought all smelled gross. There were a couple Almond and Vanilla scented brands but they were almost worst! I did laundry today and hung all my non-dryables on my drying rack and my whole house smelled so very good! I also liked it because I was almost the only brand labelled safe for high efficiency washers, which we have.
The Recommendation - I would totally recommend this product! My clothes feel wonderful and my bath towels weren't even this soft when we bought them. They also have a detergent and dryer sheets in the same scent if you really love the smell! Happy Laundry!

This girl makes Denay seem bald when she was born! She's got curly, thick, light blonde hair and is so very sweet. Natalie is making mommyhood seem easy and looks just fantastic! Well done girl.......

She is crawling up a storm and talking up a tornado. This girl just motors all over the house gabbing to anything that's in eye sight. She's yet to crack any teeth but has started trying (and succeeding a few times) to pull herself up to standing.

:: We've had (and enjoyed) this quilt for two and a half years now. It was a wedding gift from......yep, Auntie Marilyn. It also has a handwritten patch on the underside and has made a home on the back of our sofa. To say the least it has been warm on a cold night and again, I think it will be around for a long, long time. ::
Hope ya'll had a fabby weekend and a great start to the week!
