We're walking!

Lilli is getting more confident by the minute. Yesterday she walked a few steps from the T.V. to the coffee table. Today she is walking through the kitchen and family room. She is officially walking. Her favorite mode of transportation is still crawling, but she will abandon that soon enough. Lord help us! We are such rookies with this whole baby thing!

Her latest favorite thing is testing her lungs. She screams, sings, mimics, whatever. And, she is very loud about it. We laugh. It is so funny to watch her from afar as she is singing or talking to herself. She has the funniest facial expressions.

We have all but abandoned the crib issue for the time being. Tomorrow it will be 3 weeks since we have had her. I'm going to give her until the 6-week mark and then we are going to go into full swing crib mode (hopefully). We are working on several ways we can make this transition as painless as possible.

We found another food that the wee one will eat. She will eat the heck out of corn-on-the-cob. It was the funniest thing to watch her. She took the ear and tried to bite into the end. She must have gotten some of the sweet corn in that bite and then it was all over. She ate two ears of corn. My mom called tonight to make sure it didn't upset her stomach. I'm just glad that she is eating something vegetable-like (I know--it's a starch in disguise).

Well, I must go for now. I need to put a dragon to bed and mommy needs to go to bed as well--I'm exhausted!
