Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Those teeth!!

Oh, Amelia's teeth are coming in and she is discovering what she can do with them. One of the cuter things is how she will take one of her socks that has somehow found its way off her foot and put it in her mouth, clamp down and pull. This makes a strange sound as the sock leaves her still-clenched teeth, a sound which produces a very silly still-clenched-teeth grin from my little one. Then she can't help but open her mouth for a little giggle, whereupon she re-inserts said sock for another round. Too cute.

Another thing I've noticed for the very first time is that when she eats her little Gerber puffs there are crunch noises that come from her mouth! It's amazing just how many firsts there really are with a baby.

She's teething again. First we noticed the suddenly increased amount of drool. Then she started chewing on things again, including her fingers. She's discovered that rings work really well for chewing on in such a way that they touch her gums but don't interfere with her existing teeth. She is SO smart!

And she has also discovered that it's easier to hold things in her mouth sans hands. This makes her look like one of the cats when they've found a mouse or mole outside and come trotting up to the door fully expecting to bring it inside. Not so cute. But still kind of cute. I mean, how can anything she does not be cute?

Another baby Amelia! She is so so sweet and cute! I'm wondering when my Amelia will get her first teeth, she's drooling like a champ now.
