Beautiful days in feb

At  around 9 months 13 days  you took your first independent steps. The next day you ran from me to grandpa, and back. Then to daddy and back. By midmonth you were taking 10 steps on your own. They were wobbly and were more like running than walking- you were in the process of falling and catching yourself over and over again.
 You spent this last month doing nothing but walking holding onto one of our hands. You usually dont like holding two hands. Just one 1 finger is all you need and you can go all day.
You're dad thought it would be so cute to teach you how to climb up the stairs ( i kinda wanna kill him for that) cuz guess what you want to do all day?? Yep climb up and down the stairs! since we have 3 flights of stairs and you can barely walk still, i just stand behind you and watch, as you climb each step and glance back if im still behind you and watching you be a big girl. iv put only one gate up on the middle floor so you cant fall down, but i guess ill have to get few more to prevent you from trying to go up by yourself so far.

 Your napping has improved greatly as soon as you started walking. You now sleep for at least an hour to 2 hours, with the average being 1.5 hrs. Most of the time you have 2 naps, but often you skip your last nap. Unfortunately that doesn’t mean your night sleep has improved. You still wake up 3x or more a night. We still bedshare and it works the best for you. And whatever works for you works for us, too. You're nursery and crib are still empty. Until you’re ready for a big girl bed and not nursing anymore, I don’t see you sleeping in a crib.

You're Grandparents came to visit you this month ( jeff's parents ). You're Grandma Connie was little worried it was going to take you little bit to get use to her since she hasnt seen you in few months, but the second we saw them and i handed you to her, you forgot all about me! Every morning that she would show up here you'r face lit up, you couldnt wait to grab her finger and walk with her, as you babbled a long story as you were trying to tell her all about you're day.
You were pretty good with you Gpa Jed too but for some reason you do tend to favor both of you're grandmas more then the grandpa.
Good times you had with them, they took you to the beach, boat and even a shopping spree!!! ( spoiled girl you are) yet you dont even know it.

you're first bike seat and helmet ( you loved the ride but not so much the putting on of the helmet)

You snuggle! It’s just so awesome to hug your soft warm little body when you put your cheek against mine and just lay there. When you wake up in the morning or from your nap, you roll around me snuggling for a long time, pointing at the lights on the ceiling, babbling, signing, givin my slobbery kisses and hugging me.

Wind of changes

" Change" "priorities " " different perspective" while associated with many other things these terms defiantly describe parenthood.
" Change is only understood when its taken place " Meaning we never truelly understand something until we are submerged in it, no matter how prepared you think you are, no matter how much it's around you, no matter how many people you know in that its happened to, or how many times you say it to yourself.
Still many things we don't get until it personally happens to us!
Well parenthood is one of those! ok so tons of updates but you just woke up and i managed to only get the pics up, so will fill you in on all the new stuff later on today <3

Blogging daily??

So I started following other bloggers lately and one thing I noticed I personally liked it when people were making posts every day or just few times a week with their daily pics of doing reg stuff. I know anyone i like or follow, I'm always interested in what they r doing,'eating wearing, thinking etc.
it's like my morning news paper, I get ideas, knowledge and inspiration from other people.
So I figured since I take tons of pics of baby Alex & every new thing she does, maybe I can share bit more.
So was kinda wondering to hear from u guys ... often post with just day to day pics would be something Alex one day would like more???or even just for anyone that following this blog would enjoy ??

I just hit over ten thousand views so its def cool to see people are reading and possibly connecting to this blog. But mostly iv enjoyed just hearing friends n family talk to me about all this. Thank you all for the support and let me know your thoughts !
