O.k. If you can overlook Edie's bad hair day you may notice some scooting around. Edie is beginning to crawl commando style! We are so excited! We are really having to watch her now. No more putting her down and walking away. This past week she has really been on the go. All of her therapist are so pleased and surprised at her progress. Edie is almost able to sit alone and has began to eat solids three times per day. Although she has said to be on a 5-6 month level at this point - I am sure she is quickly making her way to the 8 month level. We have changed many of her goals to crawling, sitting alone and holding her own bottle. Watch out world! Here she comes!!
We partied like a Princess as Wesley's Birthday Party. She received a lot of makeup and gifts. Wesley is quickly becoming a beauty queen. Before the party we attended Edie's first Davis Family Reunion in Billingsley. It was great to see everyone and catch up. We had relatives all the way from Alaska! Edie was a trooper for such a long day of food and fun.
We then went to the Veterans Memorial Park in Alabaster for a birthday party. Our friends Jimmy and Vanessa Walters hosted a Monkey themed party for their sons 2nd birthday. It was from 10-12 so the weather was great. We had chicken minis and a yummy Monkey cake. Andrew got a lot of great toys and was not interested in them in the least. He was focused on the slides!!
After the party we all went shopping. Edie was so great. She just sat in her stroller and played with her monkey party favor. She is really starting to make some cute sounds. I was so proud of her. After we got home she took a long nap - she was pooped! We miss Daddy and we can not wait to see him when he gets home tomorrow. Until then..........Sweet dreams Daddy.
For the past three days I have been leaving early and getting home late leaving little to no time to spend with Edie. My company has been holding their largest meeting of the year and during this time they host dinners at night. So last night Scott and I went to the major shindig while Edie stayed the night at Gigi's and Giddo's. I felt like I had not seen Edie in forever. When I went to pick her up this afternoon she had on the cutest pink and brown outfit and the most precious little shoes that her Gigi and Giddo bought for her. She looked so sweet I just had to take some pictures to share with all of you. Scott and I have had a hard time finding shoes that will stay on her since her feet are still so small. But these are perfect for her little feet.
We got home and settled back in tonight to our normal routine. Edie ate a hole jar of carrots and a few bites of banana after her bottle. She was soon off to sleep around 7:30 which is pretty early for her. She must have had a great time at her grandparents and played hard. Now we are just left here to wonder what time she will wake up in the morning. I am betting 5:00 am.
We thought Edie would love the pears because they are so sweet (or so we thought)
Edie's face tells a different story!
