The Bumbo & The Fist...

These days Eloise is making lots of progress in the discovery of her hands. The first thing she does in the morning when she wakes up is stare at her fist. When I went to get her this morning, I found her talking to it. So sweet. The following pictures were taken yesterday, while we were playing with the Bumbo that Grammy gave her for a baby shower. She loves to sit in the Bumbo & stare at the wonder the rest of us take for granted. Tonight she even started to grab & hold onto toys. We shall play with them more tomorrow...

It's SOoooo pretty!!

And it gets closer...

and closer...

And a smile of achievement. Oh my goodness, she melts me every time...

Oh that's so cute! I loved the Bumbo!
She's getting so big!

COS: I'm going to be over there next week for my brother-in-law's wedding and I have to go into Salem on Wednesday to get stuff for the rehersal...do you want to do lunch? Or coffee?

I want another baby just so I can use the Bumbo (okay for that and a hundred other reasons, but I thought it sounded good :).

She is getting big ... which I know I'll say every time I see her for say the next 18 years, but it's true!

I need to munch on her a bit. When are you visiting again miss foot loose and fancy free? I've only got about 4 more weeks of freedom before I'm tied down to that darn school schedule. :P

love her smiles! I used to enjoy so much watching the kids when they were younger try to figure out their hands..and try so hard to bring them to their mouth! Such hard work! Now they are running everywhere and I have to wonder where did those sweet babies go? :)
