June Bug is 8 months old! Or was! I am continually behind, and this blog is slowly turning into an all-June-all-the-time blog. Some day I'll figure out how to rearrange my life so that a few other things get accomplished besides feeding, clothing, and cleaning.
June decided this month that maybe she'd try something besides sitting on her bum all day. Like, hey! Rolling! FInally she figured out how to get from back to tummy (tummy to back came a week or so later).
Except there are consequences for that. The first time she did it (I mean first time since she did it around 4 months!) was during a nap of course, and then after a few minutes of thinking she was pretty awesome, realized she couldn't roll back over to her favorite side-sleeping position. It was an annoying few weeks actually, trying to decide if I make her cry or go in and roll her back over. After a while she gave up and would just Face Nap.
It's a thing apparently, and it has consequences.
She Face Napped, causing her mother some anxiety, for several days before she figured out how to roll back over. And I rejoiced.
But! The best new trick? Especially beloved by her Daddy? Her first consonant sound, Dada.
There's so way Caleb can resist her now. It was bad before, but it's all over now. He'll do and give her anything.
Another new development is that we moved her to the tub, she out-splashed the kitchen sink. I liked bathing her there, but the bonus is that now the kids can bathe together, which they both love. Here's a horrible photo of her first big girl bath.
She loves those little foam Boon toys. They're the perfect teethers too! She spends 98% of her bath with one dangling out of her mouth while she plays with the rest. She's a kook.
She started to get really good at rolling around toward the end of the month and can pretty much roll and turn herself enough to get anywhere. Not crawling yet, but just barely started to push up a bit! It won't be long before she's getting into everything. Suddenly I'm looking around the house and realizing I didn't think about baby proofing when I unpacked. It's about to get real around here!
She's still up about twice a night, or maybe once if I can get her to go back to bed until 7. She's loving sweet potatoes and pears, apples and butternut squash. Looooves rice cereal, which is crazy because it tastes like nothing. She's such a little sweetheart, loves to be held and will even cuddle a little, which is something Wyatt never did. And we love it. She loves her Daddy, loves Wyatt, gets so excited to play with them when Caleb comes home from work. We just love our little Missy and can't imagine life without her!
