Happy Birthday Daddy!
Of course she will always be my baby, but really… where did my baby go? The year has just flown by. I was at the playgroup tonight [which we’ve cleverly named MUMS for Mercy & Unity Moms], and realized that we don’t have little babies anymore. We have older babies, and some toddlers! It was entertaining watching them explore their own little world, and discover eachother.
Kirra has been pretty healthy these past few weeks which is wonderful. I hope she stays that way!!! She competed in the Diaper Dash this past weekend for my work at Twin Cities Marathon. She did rather well, except she was mad at me for taking a snack away from her. I will learn my mistake for next year. She can compete in the Toddler Trot then!
We’re taking Kirra out for Halloween, which actually means that we will go to the “important” neighbors, Grandma & Grandpa’s, and Aunts and Uncles houses to show off Kirra’s costume. Which is absolutely to die for! We will post pictures after halloween! Of course she doesn’t need any candy yet, but we can and will eat it for her!
We’re slowly weaning Kirra off the bottle, so that she can go to the sippy once her first birthday hits. We gave her a teeny tiny taste of milk too, and she liked it. We’re not planning on really giving her milk until her first birthday though. We are using the Avent Sippy Cups, and you can also use the Avent nipples on them, so we use them as bottles as well.
Kirra is now standing for several moments without assistance. She has “thought” aobut taking a step, but hasn’t quite got there yet. We know that it will be sooner than we think, or probably want. Then it’s time to baby proof the house again!
