Bum Scooter

Its official! Malea is a bum scooter! I'm honestly just happy that she is moving on her own in any form. She has been so frustrated at not being able to move that it was causing extreme attachment (to mama) issues.

This is as much crawling as she has ever done and it was right after Halloween with the incentive of M&M's - maybe's Kaidrei's willingness to help her out has something to do with it.  ;)

The first video was from 12/09/11 and the second video was from 11/02/11.

It hit me today that this sweet spunky little girl is going to turn 1 this month! Wow!

Small success

I'm counting my blessings tonight. We had battles over the sippy cup dissapearance, but it wasn't as bad as we were expecting. There were lots of tears and tantrums, but she eventually gave in and drank milk out of different cups. The great thing is that she ate great because she wasn't filled up with milk.

Though Brian and I are both left shaking our heads tonight as she went to bed without any crying or resisting at all! I'm very grateful after an hour of screaming at nap time.

Book Monster

The book lost the battle with Malea when it was left within reach of her. It took less than a minute for utter destruction to take place...and she loved evey minute of it.
