Growing Up

I just wanted to document several milestones Rose accomplished this weekend.

1. Rose is pulling up everywhere! She can move from one object to another. For example, she will start at her activity table, move one hand to the sofa, and then move the other so she is standing at the sofa.

2. She waved bye bye without being prompted for the first time tonight. We went to dinner with cousins and my parents and when the cousins started walking to their car, Rose started waving at them!

3. After watching Grammy stack blocks, Rose attempted to stack her own! It was too cute.

4. This isn't really a milestone, but Rose has gotten very possessive of her Mommy in the past few days. She cries when I leave the room and reaches out for me when she is in someone else's arms. I know its a good thing that she prefers her Mommy and Daddy but I hate to see her sad when I have to leave.

I'll try to post some new pictures soon!

Today I went in to check on Rose while she was trying to take her nap and found her standing in the crib! That was the first time she pulled up to standing on her own and she was scared to death. Her poor little hands were sweaty because she was gripping the rail so hard. She was sooo happy to see me and busrt into a huge smile when I rescued her. Can't wait to see if she will do it again after her nap!

Rose vs. Santa

Rose and I went to the Santa Breakfast and Christmas Jubilee. It was such a cute event and I think Rose and her friends will get so much more out of it when they are a little older. We had lots of fun...until time to meet the big guy.
Rose took one look at that big white beard, stuck her little lip out, and started screaming. I was laughing so hard that all of the pictures were blurry!

She's not a fan.
She was fine as soon as I rescued her and was a trooper while we all attempted to shop with our huge strollers. For those of you who haven't been...its super crowded and not a place where you take a stroller if you are serious about getting some shopping done. Rose was asleep as soon as her little head hit the carseat for the ride home.

Sorry to those of you who checked the blog in the past few days and got the message that we went private! I have a friend who had a really creepy thing happen because of her blog and I got a little freaked out and decided that having my daughter's pictures and life's details on the web wasn't worth it to me. Since I didn't want to delete the blog and lose everything I've written during the last year, I just decided to make it private...but I didn't invite anyone to read! Again, please don't feel like I just didn't invite you... I didn't invite anyone. I still haven't decided what to do but I just wanted to explain why I went private. I'm going back to private in a few days but I wanted to explain my decision because I had lots of people calling and emailing asking where we went! Thanks for being interested in us :) I might decide to continue the blog and invite people to read, or I might give it up all together. I'm not that into it anymore! Maybe its this pregnancy and having an almost 10 month old that's making me feel like the blog is more of a hassle than a joy. But I promise to look back at my list of requests and invite those who care about us if I decide to continue!
