fully mobile

Alexandra is fully mobile. She got the crawling thing down to a science now and everything above her head is something to grab on to and pull herself up. The funniest thing is... She screams while she tries something new. Out of frustration for not getting it as easily as she probably imagined it would be. I can't help it. I have to laugh. She's hysterical. I hope I'm not spoiling her by laughing instead of correcting her. But it's just too funny. Everything she does is funny. Am I a bad parent? I'm afraid I'm raising a little monster just because I'm amused by her quirkiness.

first 2 teeth

On April 20 we found her first tooth. Bottom right. On May 13 we found the second. Bottom left. 
Since Mother's Day she's been doing a lot of standing up and moving from side to side as long as she can grab on to things. 
She's busy all right. And very proud of herself.
She's also been very fussy. I wonder whether it's her teeth or that cold that she has going on.
I'm glad we put the gate up in our bedroom.

up in crib

Today mom put Alexandra down for a nap in her crib and the little freak stood up. Trouble. 

I'm not sure if I wrote this here, but on May 1 she opened my supplies drawer. We bought drawer locks. 

The funniest thing wasn't the opening and exploration of the drawer, but her realization that she couldn't close it. And now her legs were stuck under it. Her face of "help me, mom" was priceless. What did I do? Help my baby? No. Took a picture of it!

I'm evil...

stand up, baby

On Sunday she pulled herself up by holding on to the bed. 
Now she's crawling. slowly, but still crawling.

I put my butt up in the air sometimes

Since last Sunday, Alexandra has been sitting up, and sticking her butt up in the air, as if trying to stand up. He's done it faster and faster. Which means she's very mobile around the room. It's time for us to put up baby gates. Is also time for us to start proofing the house. This morning, she managed to open a low drawer, and start pulling things out of it.
