She's been army crawling backwards for a while now. I kinda suspected that she could crawl forward by the progress she's made across rooms, but had never witnessed it. I just saw her do a half army crawl half traditional crawl about two feet forward to get to the entertainment center (she loves to play with the handles on the drawers). I watched a few more minutes and she rolls/crawls backwards and forwards to make her way to her destination. Who know I'd be so excited? :)

Not much to say today. Trying to get the house ready for our departure Saturday morning and trying not to forget anything. Do you see those teeth!?? :) Posted by Hello

I'm going to play around with my blog for the next few days. Hopefully I won't be pulled away while in the middle of something, but all you Moms know that that isn't always possible. I'm also toying with the possibility of moving my blog to my own server. What do you think? Would you follow me? I'm afraid that if I leave then nobody will come visit my new home (since I'm boring, remember?) Or, I guess I could look at it as people following me because they like me (they really do!). I don't know. I'm torn. Blogger and Blogspot hosting has been good to me. Tell me what you think!


In keeping with the theme of all these questions, I have another. At what age did you start your babe on solid food? Just curious. No fights. Good ole fashioned curiosity. :)

Kiss Kiss Darling

Magdalena has learned to kiss. She doesn't do it on command though. For a few weeks she has been smacking or popping her lips. Yesterday, she decided that she could purse her lips together and make the kiss sound. Sitting with her in her swing I got up next to her and "air kissed" several times. She kissed the air and burst out into fits of giggles.

A Vote

Let's take a vote, mmkay? Let's say you send your child to a sitter during the day. Now this sitter doesn't make very much an hour, you can cancel on her at any point during the day, you have her do crazy stupid stuff, and always have special instructions. Now, this sitter is taking your child to preschool three times a week. She has to drop the child off and pick her up. This entails loading her own child into a car, shuffling them both around and going to the school. At the school the sitter has to walk your child in the door, which means she has to take her child out of the car too. Remember that winter is approaching fast and that will start to be a royal PITA. So on to the question. Do you pay her $3.50 for the hours that the child is in preschool?

Leaving on a Jetplane

We are leaving this weekend to go visit Erichs family. So, all you experienced traveling Mama's, what am I going to forget? What won't I be able to live without for three days?
