28 Weeks

Oh, our little Tillie Bean. She is at such a fun age. Growing 'so big' so fast. Still loving to sit up. Her Sophie giraffe. And immediately putting all toys directly into her mouth.

Although she is starting to use her mouth for TALKING! Oh yes. She graced us with her first true babbling: "Baabababababa" over and over again at 5:45 AM on New Years Day.

Luckily I went to bed at 10:30 the night before and it was VERY cute, so I didn't care that it was ridiculously early.

Her thighs keep getting chunkier and chunkier. Pretty sure she take after her Mama in the 'thunder thigh' camp.

Matilda got all bundled up to enjoy our first true snow of the season, which is pretty funny since it January and an inch of snow was about all we had.

Peek-A-Boo is quickly becoming a favorite past-time. We play peek-a-boo pretty much all day long because it gets such good giggles. It is so great that she is actually trying to look for whoever is hiding now. 


NYE was like any other night in our house.
Except for the nudie baby in the NYE hat that eventually peed on our chair because her parents got cocky.

Matilda continues to be very serious, focused, intense, etc etc etc. At least that is what everyone that meets her for the first time says. Most likely it is because she is like that in new situations. 

I like it.

She isn't just going to give up her smiles for just anyone. No, you have to work for it.
And she is going to do some serious checking out of what is going on before she decides how she is going to  handle it.

Truthfully, it has always kind of bothered me that people always call her serious and intense.
UNTIL, our new pediatrician (whom I adore) upon meeting Matilda says, "that girl has some GREAT social skills, look at how she looks at me and checks me out...very in tune with what is going on"
That's skills. She's got 'em.

Just don't mistake her not smiling at you for not liking you. She just wants to figure you out first.

Looks like Matilda has filled out even more since Christmas. She is turning into a little chunker. When you look at each of the photo's you can see the many moods, looks, expressions of Til. I love them all, Mom

I don't smile at everyone either. I'll chalk it up to social skills, too! :)
