I've been a little neglectful about updating lately, trying to unplug a bit during the day now that Aurora is becoming more active and wants to explore and learn. Plus we've been out and about during this super hot weekend which made it much harder to leave the little bean in our nice cozy bed and abandon the AC to come play on the internet. But she's sleeping soundly at the moment and there's a cool breeze coming in the living room (finally!!) so here I am with a few new firsts to report!
First up: Aurora is getting her first tooth... well teeth technically. I saw the first little bud a few days ago and only two days later there was another one right next to it!
|Pardon the blurry photo, she was intent on grabbing the camera!|
|Ok, I'm supposed to do what with this now?|
|Her first solo attempt at her tiny rocking horse.|
|Hanging out by the pool.|
|That's me on the left (I get a little tan during the summer haha)|
Seems like I found just another way that this little munchkin is taking after mama.
Another huge development has happened too! Aurora has definitely figured out crawling though she seems pretty content to only travel short distances at the moment... a squirm and a few pushes with her knees until she gets to the toy she wants is good enough for now. This is not to say she can't go further! She came barreling at me the other day full speed across a whole room! Guess she thought I wasn't paying enough attention.
|Aurora is primarily interested in toys, not transportation.|
Here's the thing: I think she's saving her effort for bigger and better (and scarier) things. The other day I had her on her playmat and stepped away because I forgot my coffee, in less than two minutes I came back to this:
|How is she learning to stand already!!?|
|Let the games begin!|
