Daddy’s girl

February 25, 2009

So it happened. I knew it was a matter of time. I was doing laundry last night and putting clothes away in the bedroom. I came back into the living room and Devon said “you lose”. I had no idea what he was talking about. He was holding the baby and had this silly grin on his face. She was grabbing his beard hairs and he was smiling ear to ear. He said it again. “You lose- she just said Daddy”. I didn’t believe him. I was sure she babbled something, but “daddy”?? No, I doubt it. Then after a quick nap, she was very talkative and it happened again. She looked right at him and said “da-deee”. I wanted to cry. Then it was “dee-da”. Then It was “a-dee-da”. So cute! We were so excited about it that she was saying it over and over again. Then she called me da-dee. She called Oscar da-dee and I am pretty sure she called the fireplace and her jar of baby food da-dee. It didn’t matter to Devon. He was the first “da-dee”.



My eating machine…

February 24, 2009

Some of the best things about having a 6 month old are that she can laugh, play and entertain herself. Probably one of my favorite new things is that she can eat food. I love to watch her facial expressions when she is trying something new or the excitement in her eyes when she loves the taste of something new. She gets so excited and will yell out and make mmm..mmm.. noises. Very cute. I think sweet potatoes are her favorite, but she also likes lentils??? I can’t figure that one out. Because of my horrible food issues, I hope that she will not be like me. I think we are safe…


My first blog post… how exciting!

February 23, 2009

So I really don’t know why I decided to have a blog. Probably because I am jealous of other people’s blogs and I thought this would be a way to document my daughters life. I am horrible at things like filling out baby books and sending out pictures. You know, the things that most moms I know are really good about. So here it is. Nothing exciting or newsworthy. I am a horrible speller and I really don’t care! So please feel free to correct my spelling or add comments. Most likely, I will get bored with this thing  to be a better speller in a few weeks….
