Bianca and Gavin Meet

My Pink Papaya Launch Party went well this weekend. One of the highlights of the afternoon was getting to meet our new baby cousin Gavin for the first time. My family has been saying how they can't wait to get the two Little Ones together. We assumed they would meet for the first time at Easter, but we were all pleasantly surprised that it happened a little earlier! Here are a few pictures of the momentous event:

More Mobile Than Ever!

We really need to keep our eyes on Bianca. It has been part of our morning routine to lay Bianca on her Pack-n-Play changing table while Harry and I fix our lunches and take care of any last-minute tasks before we leave the house. This morning was no different....except for the fact that BiBi tried to climb out of the changing area. I think she was attempting to roll over, but in the process, her right leg was hanging off the table. Yikes! Luckily I saw her and grabbed her before she fell, but ohmigoodness. We are never leaving her there again!

Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

Bianca isn't anywhere near crawling, but that doesn't mean that she hasn't found a way to get around. She has decided that she really, really likes to roll. Harry put her on her tummy, and as usual, she rolled over onto her back within a few seconds. But then she decided to roll back onto her tummy....and then back onto her back. She kept rolling until she reached her exersaucer and couldn't go anywhere else. (She has only learned to roll in one direction so far!) We put her back on the middle of the floor, and she repeated her rolling feat...until she reached the fireplace and got stuck. I wasn't able to catch it on video, but it was definitely funny to watch. Maybe next weekend we can catch her in action...

I should also mention that BiBi turned 6 months old today! I can't believe she is already half a year old. I've said it so many times, but I still can't believe how fast time is flying.

Bad Mom

Ok…I admit it… I feel like a bad mother. Bianca has a big scrape on her head. It’s been there for about a week. My sister asked me last night, “What happened to her head?” I didn’t know how to answer her, because I honestly have no idea how it happened. I don’t know if it happened while she was at home or while at Aunt Dot’s. And I never even bothered to ask. I just saw it, said to myself, “Poor baby has a boo-boo,” and let it go. Now I can’t even recall the first day I saw it. I feel like if I was a good mom, I would have better tabs on my Little One. Right now, it almost feels like she's an afterthought, and I absolutely hate feeling that way. Harry says we are giving her a better life with me working. If that were true, how come it doesn't feel that way?

Welcome to Swing!

The temperature reached 58 degrees in Baltimore today. The sunshine and relative warmth had everybody in a good mood today. Aunt Dot made sure to take advantage of the nice weather and took the girls to the park. Bianca was able to get on the swings for the very first time! Apparently she had a lot of fun.

I really cannot believe how quickly she is growing up! Harry and I bought her a cute little shirt yesterday. The biggest size they had was 6 months, but it was so adorable, I couldn't pass it up. She wore it today, and already I can tell that she won't be able to wear it much longer.

She's been doing really well with sitting up. She doesn't even need her Boppy anymore, and she doesn't fall over to the side like she used to do. She's not my little baby anymore!

We take her back to the pediatrician on the 18th. I can't wait to see how much she weighs and how long she is. She is so heavy and looking so long! Pretty soon she won't be able to fit in her car seat anymore.

I really do have to enjoy every minute with her. Time is flying by so much faster than I ever imagined it would.
