Rocking horse

Lizzy loves the rocking horse Grandma Bennett got for her. She can get on by herself and is working on rocking it.

First steps!

(Actual first steps not pictured)

Lizzy has been walking so well with assistance lately. She’ll walk with fingers to hold; she loves walking with her push toys. But today she took her first solo steps.

She was playing on the rocking horse Grandma Bennett got her and wanted to get to her push toy,  so she took two tentative little free handed steps to get there!  Nate and I were so proud.

We didn’t get pictures of the steps, but here are a few of her walking with help during this trip.

Flyball and friends

In a very happy coincidence,  my best friend from vet school was 45 minutes away from us at a flyball tournament, so we had to go! Flyball is a really cool dog sport that I would love to do, but I definitely don’t have the time I’d need to devote to getting a dog trained.

Lizzy had a lot of fun at the tournament,  though.  She saw Ashley again and met my friend Jenn. Lizzy was enamored with Ashley’s dog Ranger.

Travel

We flew from NC to TX. We were supposed to fly into Waco, but our Charlotte to Dallas flight got canceled and the flight they automatically booked us on was 520 out of Charlotte and getting into Waco around 10. We called and ended up on an 1120 into Dallas and grandparents Bennett picked us up in Dallas.  Oh, American Airlines.

All that travel made for a sleepy Lizzy. Though she did enjoy showing grandma Bennett the owl hug game.

Bubbles!

They were playing with bubbles when Lizzy got dropped off. Apparently,  bubbles are a blast!

Hanging out at daycare

Lizzy loves her new daycare classroom. Right now they just have 5 little ones, but next week they’re going up to 8!

Sleeeepy

This is what happens when a baby wakes up screaming at 5 AM and you can’t get her to stay asleep in her bed. It definitely makes for a sleepy day for mommy and daddy, who don’t get to take 2 hour naps in the middle of the day.

New toys

Lizzy got some really great new toys for her birthday. She loves her baby stroller (and she likes the doll). She especially likes her new push and ride shopping cart. It goes so fast! She really builds up some steam with that one.

Smash Cake!

Lizzy enjoyed her smash cake. She was very gentle with it.  She picked the icing off for a while before finally digging in and getting some cake. She never really did get full on destructive. Apparently, she’s just not that kid.

Balloons

I got this idea from pinterest and I just couldn’t not do it! She is so cute.

While we have some cute pictures, Lizzy wasn’t actually totally sold on the crib full of balloons!
