This has been a fun and busy month! Our little Ally girl is crawling all over the place. As soon as she found out she could crawl, she did....she is on the go all the time! Whether she is chasing Ryan or trying to fish cords from under the couch or digging in the toy bins...she is all over! She also loves to chase Layla. She also has been eating a TON! She honestly eats more than Ryan and sometimes more than me. As long as there is food on her tray, she will keep eating. That is why is 2 months she has gained over 5 lbs! But, we praise the Lord for that because she needed to catch up. She is now a little over 20 lbs...we are ready to move her to a bigger car seat! I can't believe how big she is getting so fast...it's a work out carrying her around all day. She is also now fully in a routine but is very flexible. On days that we are home...she usually wakes up around 7, then naps from 9:00-10 or 10:30, then naps again from 2-3 or 4 (during the afternoon nap if she wakes early, I nurse her and let her sleep while holding her for a while...and I read...it's the best!), she then goes down at 7. She is an awesome car sleeper...she loves to be in the car which makes traveling super easy with her...and days where we have to go to Fresno easy because I know she will get plenty of sleep while driving. :) She is such a happy baby, but definitely has shown us that she has a mind of her own and knows what she wants. Lately she has wanted to eat with silverware, and lets us know when she doesn't have it. She also goes for any cords, and Layla's food...which is now in the laundry room so we can shut the door. :) Oh, my silly little girl! Here are my favorite pics from the month:
|Playing in bed with Ryan :)|
|Jason rocking her to sleep...so sweet!|
|We were matchy girls for church one day...hehe|
|she does not like to fall asleep in her crib...if she is still a little awake and I put her in..she decides its play time...so we nurse and rock and then she goes in just fine. :)|
|She has been pulling herself up...such a big girl!|
|wants to be by Ryan ALL the time!|
