great accomplishments

See this toy stand? well, the toys attatched are "pull-toys." when you pull them down, they jiggle back on up. quite fun. when she lays under it, she's been swatting at them, having fun seeing them go back and forth. and, i would pull them down and she'd be thrilled seeing them go back on up, hearing the rattling sound.

Lately, she's been grabbing on to them. i would hold it with her and pull it down with her "help," and she's been having fun. she would try to do it herself, but just couldnt. WELL, this morning she pulled it down on her own! i was so thrilled. i cheered her on, and she smiled at me, so proud of herself!!

what motivated her to do this? well, she wanted to put it in her mouth! why? cuz she's teething. Her first tooth came in monday! yeah!!! its this cute little white bump on her lower gums. i'm so happy about that too.

my little girl is all grown up. ... well, not quite. but she's definitely growing. ah, the joys of mommyhood-- being able to see my precious one grow.

Ain't it great when they suddenly do something on their own that you've been helping them with?! Ahhhh I know how you feel. Such a proud moment!!

And... way to go, Erica! Reagan welcomes you to the, "I've-Got-Teeth Club!" :)
