pears, parks, & pulling-up

this morning, i left pearl in the front room while i grabbed some clothes from her bedroom. when i came back, she was STANDING, holding on to her tub of toys, taking them out one-by-one.
she has been cruising for a while, but has never pulled herself up! now that she has figured it out, she won't stop! it has been an interesting day, baby-proofing "as needed." oh my dangerous, wish us luck

pee pee gathered almost all of her stuffed animals and slept ON them LOL


new teething guard, yeah!


what the LITTLE GIRL?

so pearl has had an awesome week. her teeth are coming through, and she's starting to feel better!
she has been eating more finger foods too; she tried chunks of avocado, cantaloupe, pears, bananas, and peas. i am so grateful that she is not picky!!! she has liked almost everything she has tried!
pearl has a dr. appt this friday. i am excited to see how much she weighs and how tall she has gotten.

till next time, stay classy. . .

here's pearl babbling- her favorite thing to say is "Nanana"::thanks a heap, gma crossman!
ps: don't mind how nasty my voice sounds- or the laundry.

in your face

GEEZ i know. it's been way too long. well here's the biggest blog ever, in your face.

anyway, here are some random shots from the last month:

learning the ways of the sippy


loves to scream! thanks for the hoodie, aunt brittany! (not sure why it was zipped-up ALL the way?!?)


okay, just stay right there. . .


pearl loves daft punk :)


silly smile


post-nap HAIR :: love it!


frozen green beans- who knew?


pearl, NO!!!


so happy, so cute


UPDATE:
so pearl is fake-crawling. she uses an unique military/ballet style that is efficient enough for her.

she just started 'cruising' this week [walking- holding onto furniture]. exciting!

pearl will be getting her maxillary central incisors soon- she's been working on them for-ever. for those of you who make fun of me, they're the "upper two front teeth." jerks.


VACA
here are a few of over 1,000 pics :) from our recent trip to st. kitts:
