Ch-ch-ch Changes

It's happening before my very eyes and I just can't stop it no matter how hard I try! My baby is growing up. Yes she's still a baby yet little things are changing that indicate she has started the move from baby to toddler.

Crawling has been left behind and replaced by walking...and running! I've even noticed her jumping in excitement with both feet leaving the ground at the same time but I'm not sure she realizes she can do this! Here she is this past Monday, taking advantage of all the room to walk around our doctor's waiting room.

Hannah still enjoys baby food (thankfully for ease when in a pinch) but is also adding more table foods each week. Last week we tried peanut butter and all went well. Yeah! This paranoid prepared mommy had Benadryl at the ready as well as the phone close by but she handled it just fine and as you can see by this pic from earlier tonight, she enjoys her peanut butter both as a meal, and as a hair treatment!
Tonight we also took another step forward when Hannah began to use a baby toothbrush. We will still use our little finger toothbrush when upstairs
but downstairs we have now have a cute little baby toothbrush. With 7 little teeth in her mouth and the fact that she finds it fun to nibble the brush above, I'm not as anxious to put my finger in her little mouth as I used to. :o) I brushed her teeth with the new toothbrush first and she had a huge grin on her face once she figured out what I was trying to do. Next I handed her the brush and you can see from these pics that she had a lot of fun with it!

Monday is my first dentist appointment since Hannah has been home and I have strict instructions from the girls there that Hannah has to come with me so that they can meet her. That I'll happily do and Grandma will come along to help entertain her during my appointment. If they want to count her teeth she's made it easy for them as all 7 (or 6 1/4) are right in the front and oh so cute!! Check out this adorable grin showing off all her teeth!! Love her!

  4. They do grow up way to quickly. Wishing you a wonderful and happy first Mother's Day.

  5. I'm told it's the second exposure to peanut butter that causes the problem (or the second bee sting or whatever the "issue" is), so watch for the second exposure too.

    Happy First Mother's Day!!!!!!!
