Okay, a FEW Christmas presents!

Mommy and Daddy did let me open up a few of my presents today. I like getting presents! And I thought the unwrapping part was pretty fun too!

I wasn't too sure what to do with this at first, but I quickly figured out it's a teether that I'm supposed to chew on. How did I miss that? I chew on everything else!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone! This is my first Christmas, and I was so excited! Did you know that Santa Claus comes to your house if you're a good girl or boy? Well I guess I've been a really good girl because he came to our house last night with lots of presents for me! Look at all my presents!

Unfortunately, Mommy and Daddy have been feeling lousy all weekend, since Saturday. We all went to the doctor yesterday and they have bronchitis. (Did I ever mention how much fun the tissue paper on the examining table is to crumple? I didn't want to leave!) Grandma and Grandpa Roslewski were going to come down for Christmas, but since Mommy and Daddy are sick, they'll delay until this weekend, as long as everyone's feeling better.

And since I'm such a good girl and know how much Mommy and Daddy want to enjoy my first Christmas with me, I decided I'll wait until they're feeling better before I open all my presents. (Besides, I think that Grandma and Grandpa might just have something for me too!) Aren't I nice?

Hope you all had a great day!

I'm better now

I haven't been feeling really great these last couple of weeks, with the new tooth coming in and all. It's been hard for me to drink all of my milk, and I've had problems keeping it down sometimes. Mommy and Daddy were getting a little worried because I wasn't eating very much at all. But it seems like I'm all better now, and am gulping my meals down just like before! I guess I've got to get used to these new teeth coming in.

Today I curled up with Mommy for a nice little nap. I love Mommy!

6-month checkup

Today was my 6-month checkup! Can you believe I'm 6 months old already? I am getting to be such a big girl. My height is now 28 inches, which is off the chart for height. My weight is 17 lbs 10 oz, which is at about the 85th percentile, and my head size is 42.5 cm, which is average, right at the 50th percentile. So I'm tall and thin, just like my Mommy and Daddy and lots of my relatives.

I also got some more shots. I didn't like these any more than last time. This time Daddy was there to hold me and make me feel safe, but I still didn't like them. At least the nurse was really quick about it.

A tooth! A tooth!

My very first tooth showed up on Thursday and now is really easy for Mommy and Daddy to see and feel. Mommy's thought she's felt something for a few days now, but they hadn't been able to see anything until just recently. In fact, Daddy was even able to get a picture. Now, here I am, crying my eyes out, and what does Daddy do? Does he pick me up and gently rock me? No. Does he feed me? No. Does he try to comfort me in any way? No! He grabs the camera, realizing it's a great chance to get a photo of my new tooth.

Don't worry, he did pick me up afterward and made me feel better. :)

What are they trying to feed me?

They call them prunes, and they're supposed to be good for me. Well, I guess Mommy and Daddy know best, so I ate them right up. Strangely, I think I heard Daddy use the word "yuck" a few times. Now I'm not too sure what that means, but it must mean "gee, I would like some delicious prunes too". Do you think I'm right?

Decorating the tree

This evening Mommy and Daddy decorated our Christmas tree. This being my first Christmas, they were very excited about explaining all about how to properly decorate a tree. Daddy showed me the right way to put the angel on the top, and told me that I'd get to do it next year, so I paid real close attention! I even got a real closeup look!

Look at my new bathtub!

I said before that Mommy and Daddy really needed to get me a new bathtub, that countertop one just wasn't cutting it anymore. And they did! Look at me now, I can splash away to my heart's content. It's nice taking a bath in the big girl tub with my new ducky.
I like it!

Wow, what a week!

It's been quite a week, sorry I haven't kept up real well with my updates.

This week I have finally started teething. Mommy and Daddy think so anyway. I do know that I've been fussing a lot more this week, although I still make enough time in my fussing schedule to be cute and adorable. So they've been giving me a little Tylenol and some Orajel to make me feel better, and it helps. They are very excited at the prospect of me waking up in the middle of the night again! I've been sleeping through the night for months now, I think they might appreciate a little change in the routine!

Ooh, and Mommy and Daddy tried out some faster flowing nipples for my bottles. They're supposed to be for ages 6 months and up, but I like using them now. And so do my parents, I can suck down a 6 or 7 ounce bottle in 5 minutes if I really want to! I like it! (And so do they!) I have been trying to hold my own bottle. For some reason Daddy is really interested in me learning how to do this. Who knows why? I'm trying hard, but just don't have the angle down quite yet.

I'm really growing too large for the countertop bathtub I've been using. Maybe someday Mommy and Daddy will realize this and get me a new tub! Aren't I cute? (Washcloth added for modesty.)

On Saturday, I got to see Santa in the morning! I had seen him come to town in the Thanksgiving Day parade, but now I got to see him in person and sit in his lap! He had come to Tinker Air Force Base, where Mommy works, and was in one of the hangars there. It was quite exciting. Other kids my age were crying in his lap, but I wasn't scared one bit. Unfortunately, none of the pictures really came out very well. Maybe we'll try again in a week or two! I was wearing my new Christmas outfit, do you like it?

That evening Mommy and Daddy took me to a Christmas reception at Mommy's work. I got to meet lots of new people, and was on my best behavior all night, smiling at everybody and laughing too. Mommy and Daddy were so proud of me!
