Big Girl!

Monday, July 22, 2013
I swear, every day brings something new, something a little better than the day before. Our little bit is growing up and we are enjoying every moment of it! This weekend Daddy put together her very first VW bug! He's already ordered a cute tie-dyed VW symbol to put on the front. LOL She loves it! It's so strange to see such a little girl sitting straight up, jabbering, and grinning. Our dog still weighs more than she does! She weighed in at 12 pounds, 11.5 ounces on Saturday. Newton, our shih tzu, weighs 13.6 pounds. Ha! Can you believe that? And she's almost 7 months old! She's going to be our little petite firecracker.

She's also started holding her own bottle. Of course when she's sleepy, she still wants us to hold it for her. That's ok, though. We don't mind, except when that temper kicks in and those little fat legs start kicking and that cute head of her's jerks back. Yep, she's definitely got a little firecracker in her when she feels like it. I can't help but laugh when she does it, and I'm sure that doesn't help. But seriously, it's hysterical. (Remind me that I said that when she's throwing her first temper tantrum in public someday...)

We've decided to send her to daycare two days a week once school starts back next month. She's getting so aware of her surroundings and she's so attached to me, that we think it will be good for her to have that social interaction. We originally wanted to wait until she was a year old, but she'll be 7 months, going on 8, so that's not too far away from one year. Daddy is already torn up about it. He told me I had to take her; he couldn't do it. He didn't want to see her cry. She has him wrapped around her little finger. Well, maybe me too. Isn't she a cutey? :)
