A reader like her daddy

Harold is always…always reading something…and now…Little Pickle has found her love for books too.  This is a fabric book from Grandma Lucille.  It crinkles and there are different textures and little pieces that she can grab…she just now discovered that she CAN grab..and she loves it.

Lincoln thought bubble "dude, she's totally looking...act cool...act cool"


Yes, they’re still here

And while their hair isn’t brushed quite as nicely or as often….we still adore them :-)

The toys be swingin’

So,  Just because I posted about how much she liked tracking those fish….  (I wrote that post a few days before it was published online).  Miss Wiggles has gone and made more astounding developments…and now her patience with those fish is a little short. She has started really really batting at toys (she was doing it a bit before…but now…those toys are getting a workout), so,  the other day I noticed her reaching, like she was trying to bat the fish on the swing, but couldn’t reach them…it was tres frustrating for Miss Wiggles….  she requested we remove her from the swing immediately and give her something she could reach.

Here’s an action shot of her in her “jungle gym”…  you can sort of see the toys swinging…  but my camera is not that quick, so I miss things.  She’s hit Mr.Octopus so hard that he’s spun around backwards in this picture…

022 “Gosh, aren’t I just the cutest!”  Really…that’s what she said!


I’m amazed at how she seems to be doing something new every week.  And every week we think it’s the biggest milestone…and then…the next week comes and she amazes us again…

It’s all about the swimming fish

This picture is from Tuesday.  A day before she turned 8 weeks.  In the last week or two she’s really changed a lot.  Now she will really track those fish as they turn around and around.  Before she used to prefer to just look at the still fishy picture on the side of the swing….now..it’s all about those swimming fish.


She’s still not much for swinging…usually we just have the swing part turned off, with the fish and sometime music going.  Our girl does not do well with too much movement.  Which makes it tough because people seem to automatically bounce or rock or jiggle a baby constantly the entire time they’re holding them…..  I don’t always know the best way to say “stop jostling my baby….she likes calm and still…so she can look around and not vomit”  ….any ideas on the best way to gently get this across.  I’ve used the “oh…she just ate, you might not want to move her too much” but that only works for a couple of minutes,…then it’s back to bouncing.  I never realized it before…but really, everyone keeps babies in constant motion.

More smiles

Here’s another smiley picture from after her nap on Monday…  I was wrong on my last post…that wasn’t early morning…it was after her nap…  same deal though…lot’s of smiles!  Smiles never capture quite the same on camera do they…..  the pictures are cute, but, they just don’t look like the real thing… she lights up the room I tell ya.

This picture was taken of our smiley girl on Monday right when she was waking up.  She is a morning person!  See the sleepy eyes, and yet she’s all smiles for us.  What a fantastic thing to see first thing in the morning.

Anyways, Harold thinks she looks like a pirate in this picture…he want the caption to say “Yarrrrrr!”  or however you spell that pirate word.  It’s kindof fitting that she would look a little piratey….I guess she’s taking after her mother on that one…  wait till she tries to wink!



For the record.. I don’t think I really caught her in true pirate form…since really…both eyes are open in this picture ;-P

Oh dear…

We sometimes just read whatever we are reading to Miss Wiggles…since…it’s really more the voice that matters right now right?  Daddy was reading to her the other day…. I think the look on her face is priceless…”oh no…the state of the world!!!”001

Up all night in this new world

The first night Miss Wiggles was born…we both just layed there…staring at each other….  for a long time….this was taken at about 3:40am.  We were up most of the night…there was also a lot of crying…and not much sleep.
