Willa Bean Update

Rolling - She's rolled from her tummy to her back several times, but seems to forgot how to do it in between rolls. It takes her a few minutes and some whining to roll.

Reaching & Grasping - She is reaching for things and loves to hold things. She squeezes my nose and lips and she has started to hold on to me when I hold her. She grips my shirt or my shoulder. She is discovering toys and is learning how make the toys rattle and crinkle.

Sitting - She loves to sit up, stand, and sit in her bumbo. But she definitely can't balance by herself. As soon as we let go, she tumbles over.

Cooing - She coos and smiles all day long. She is laughing more and more.

And a Cold - She got her first cold...from the pediatrician's office. We went to the doctor to stay healthy and we came home sick. She had her first fever (100.3) last Thursday night and has had a stuffy nose for the last 5 days. She's OK during the day, but gets really fussy at night. So Willa and I have spent 2 of the last 5 nights together.

I love this stage. They finally are starting to become more of an individual. I love it, too, that toys start to entertain them.
She is adorable- sorry to hear about her cold!

thanx for re-forwarding this. It is now posted to my favorites so I can read and re-read easily. I love those sweet baby cheeks and what big eyes. She doesn't miss much. JoJo

Hey Lindsay, I randomly googled you a little while back after finding some old pictures and found your blog. I've been blog-stalking you guys ever since. I figured I better say hey before it got to be weird. Anyway, glad things are good with you guys and congratulations on Willa. We've got a 3 month old Ella, which coincidently is our "Ella Bean." Anyway, just wanted to say Hi. -Jon
