Learning So Much

It was only about 3 weeks ago that Allison learned to crawl, and now she's ALL OVER THE HOUSE! Nothing is off limits, and when it is, she gets HIGHLY upset! She's learned to pull up and will pull up on anything that seems stationary, a couch, dog, leg, anything will do! She's also taking steps to get to things she wants... as long as she's holding on to something! She's starting to get brave and will try to stand up on her own, but the longest she's been able to do that for is only like 3 seconds! She also hasn't figured out how to get down from the standing position without falling and she'll get frustrated if she gets stuck, so I have to come to the rescue! So yeah, she's mastered a lot of things in the past couple of weeks! I can't wait to see what the next weeks have in store for us!

Allison has also been eating more "grown-up" food. She likes chicken as long as it's mixed with something else... I think it's too dry by itself for her to eat. I tried ground turkey yesterday with some peas and she surprised me! She ate all of the peas yet somehow siphoned out the turkey and kept it in her mouth! I tried to give her her bottle and she wouldn't take it, which was a first, and then she opened just wide enough for me to see the turkey! So I got it out and moved on to the bottle (which she took instantly)! I tried the turkey again tonight and pureed it to practically nothing, and mixed it with some sweet potatoes and she ate them all! I guess the texture was something she wasn't used to, so we'll keep trying. She's eating more "raw" fruits, bananas and strawberries, and loves them! She's learning how to chew better and is really good about putting things in her mouth (sometimes not just food)!

Allison has also become a good little sleeper! I'm sure she wears herself out crawling all over the house, but she takes 2 naps a day both about 3 hours long and then sleeps from 9pm-7am! It's been a nice change getting time for myself, but I feel so bored while she's asleep... that is after I do all the house cleaning, dishes and shower. The good/not so good news is that I've returned to baking! I missed making cookies and whatnots, but it's not boding so well for our figures! But it is nice to have time to do what I like! I'm trying to decide what hobby I want to pick up, I'm thinking something useful like sewing, but I need a sewing machine and someone with a lot of patience to show me what to do! And money to buy all those cute fabrics for clothes! So if anyone wants to help out, feel free to let me know! I'm sure my kids will appreciate it in the future!

I tried to upload a video, but my computer is having issues, so once again I put it on my Facebook so feel free to check it out there! You have to check out how curly her hair has gotten! I thought it was just her sleeping on it funny, but not so much! Apparently Daddy is coming through and giving her some of his features!
