We set up the little bouncer thingy for Meg today. Can she really be old enough to go in it already???? Granted she can't push the buttons yet, but she really seems to like it. Man. I just am in big time denial that my baby is growing up so much.
Meg's at the stage where she tries to put everything in her mouth. I really like each stage that my kiddos go through, but you forget each one too. I know that doesn't make sense, but I guess what I'm saying is, I forget how fun it is to watch them change. I love watching her try to make sense of her hands. She will just stare at them. If she really wants to grab something it takes FOREVER. She really concentrates. She's getting there though. If by chance she does grab something, straight to the mouth it goes. She is so quick at realizing that her hand has brushed against something (by accident) and hurrying and grabbing it. Dinner time is fun. She has time to stare at the plate in front of her and get the grip she wants on either mine or Bo's plate. We are rusty at remembering that babies tend to grab things. We're getting better at scooting our plates away. It makes for some entertainment at the table though.
She hasn't rolled over yet. She really doesn't have much motivation for it. Carter didn't ever really either. She LOVES her rattle though. It cracks us up. We bought the rattle back before Carter, and he didn't give it a second look. Megan? Oh she will calm right down for it. It's AWESOME! She'll be crying, but once the rattle comes into view, oh she's a whole different baby. That rattle saved my skin on the trip last week. It put her right to sleep. She also loves to try and eat it. It's her favorite toy to gnaw on.
It's interesting how different she is from Carter. I'll probably say that about all my children. She still hates, hates, hates, HATES, the pacifier. She loves her rattle. She smiles way more frequently than Carter. She isn't sleeping all through the night, but 6:30 isn't as bad as 2 was. Oh , and the best way to get her to laugh is to simply laugh. If you start laughing, she'll join in. No need for a reason, unless she thinks everyone looks super funny when laughing. We'll take it! WE LOVE THIS LITTLE GIRL! Carter especially enjoys her!
