Penina is 7 months old now. She can sit up and get on all fours from sitting position but she can't crawl yet. She is rolling and scooting every where and is attemping to pull herself up to furniture if its low enough to reach. Penina gets very mad at meal time if she doesn't have something to chew on she doesn't like the watery baby food. She LOVES to take a bath and kicks and splashes her little heart out when she is in the tub. Penina can amost say "bye-bye" and sometimes says "mama" and "dada". She just started attempting to clap her hands when you sing "If you are happy and you know it" This is my most favorite age, she is learning so much, her personality is coming out and she can't talk back hahahaha
These two are going to be good friends I can just feel it! Ana loves being a big sister, but the sibling rivalry has already started if Penina is playing with one of Ana's toys Ana will walk up and rip it out of her hand. Sometimes Ana plays with her sister a little too hard and we have to remind her constantly to be soft with Penina. Penina just lights up when she see's Ana. She'll kicks her feet and smile and coo and blubber when she see's Ana. I'm so in love with my girlies, I'm so blessed to have them!!
I went to the mall on my day off. It was so fun, I hardley get to go to the mall so it was a big treat for me. Sounds pathetic I know but it was fun just to be there and browse thru all the latest fashions, which I don't get to keep up with all too much because I have no money too. I found a new scent at Bath and Body called Butterfly Flowers, smells soooooo good!! In all it was like a recharge to my girly side that I don't get in touch with all to often! I treated the girlies to a photo session in the photo booth, they thought that was so awesome!!
So I was picking up some news papers to throw away when I spotted an article about someone's blog. I've never heard of this blog and as I read I got more and more interested in reading it. The blog is called Seriously So Blessed Its a spoof blog that someone has made too look like the typical Mormon Mommy blogger. Its really funny, if you read under her "About Me" section you get the kind of humor she uses. The crazy part of it is that its gotten so big that a lot of business donate their services to her give aways and she has some good stuff to give away. If you've never heard of it check it out for a good laugh and a chance at some great free stuff.
Penina is eating solids really well. She loves to eat the Gerber Puffs and has caught on how to pick them up and put them in her mouth she just has a hard time letting go of it after putting it in her mouth!
Penina is such a good baby. I can set her on the floor and surround her with toys and she will play by herself for a good half hour. Soon she'll be crawling, she can get on all fours but then she just floops down on her belly and she scoots around but she scoots backwards. I can't believe she will be 7 months old next week crazy, time please slow down!
Penina's new thing is to squish her face up and smile really big, its soo dang cute its hard not to copy her when she does that!
Saturday was Ana's 4th birthday! We had a blast; we invited everyone to dress up as their favorite characters. We kept it simple, we ordered pizza from Costco and I made cupcakes. I usually have a cupcake tree instead of a sheet cake but I couldn't find the base to it so we used big platters instead. The kids had a lot of fun decorating their own piñata’s and hitting them and then we played freeze dance. I didn't get a whole lot of still pictures because I was filming most of it and I have yet to learn how to load movie clips from our camcorder. Ana had lots of fun playing with her cousins and friends. Here is a little "scrap book" I put together on smile box, you can check it out!
Now that Ana is almost 4 we are working on pronouncing words correctly and learning how to say hard words like "Conditioner" She is learning that word because her hair is so long we have to put conditioner in it so its easier to comb...anyway her thing now is "Mom Mom watch I can say Cereal, Cer-ea-llll" some days she will do that with every thing in sight "Mom watch I can say Milk, Mmmm-ilk" or "Mom watch I can say Conditioner, Con-di-tion-er" She makes me laugh!
When I was little I use to wish I had a little sister just so I could play with her hair so I love that my girls have hair from the beginning I love to play with it. Here is a Hair Do my sister in-law Reenie use to do on Ana when she lived with us. I love it, its so funky so I tried it out on Penina!!
Jethro gets jealous when people say Penina looks like me so he wanted to show everyone that Penina really looks like him LOL
