Big news

Before I go on and on about my own daughter, I have to give a shout out to someone else's daughter for once. Here is my college roommate, Melissa's brand new little one, Tennyson, with her Andi-inspired hair-do. Isn't she precious? Remember when Nancy was that small? (Didn't take me long to get back to my own daughter, did it? Melissa, I'm sure you understand)And now for some HUGE news. my super baby, who is not yet six months old, is now crawling. On Tuesday my grandmother, my mom, and I were all sitting around watching Nancy play on the floor with some toys. She was doing her adorable little thing where she gets in the crawling position, then rocks back and forth, and throws her but up in the air, like a little froggy. And for a moment, her uncoordinated little limbs coordinated themselves and she crawled. We all shouted so loud that Nancy got scared and stopped crawling. She sat herself back up on her adorable little tush, and stared at us, wondering what all the fuss was about. Since then, she has been crawling all over the place. Of course, her technique still needs quite a bit of work, but she is getting better at an alarming rate. I am going to have double my efforts at keeping an eye on her constantly. The crazy baby will be walking before I know it. It seems like the more mobile she gets, the more bumps on the head she gets. But I guess that is all part of growing up. Well, of course, I don't have any pictures of her crawling, but I'm sure I will get some up soon. Here's some other cute pictures that I sure you will enjoy.

For those of you who don't know Nancy well, her favorite things to chew on are paper products of any kind.

Nancy also still loves to chew on her grandma's chin. And I agree with Aunt Wendy about the flipping cute part. And she's also pulling up. Andi didn't mention that. Is it bragging to say I have incredible grandchildren!

She is so adorable! Leaving her and the little ones will be the saddest part of having left Kansas. (I'm back in California now, with my own kids.)
