What I Love About Alyssa – Catch Up

What I love about Alyssa – 36 – 39 weeks!!


Ok – so yes, I got behind.  It was just kind of hard to get everything done during the Christmas holidays!!  But I am catching up now!!!

Alyssa you had a WONDERFUL first Christmas!!  We had so much fun with you!

You loved Santa Clause.  You would smile any time you would see one and you just grinned when we put you in Santa’s lap!

Even though you can belly crawl all over the house (and are super fast) you are still a bit wobbly when trying to sit up.  Your little blue chair worked perfect for you to sit in to enjoy Christmas morning though!


I think the wrapping paper was your favorite part.  You would get mad if we tried to take it from you.


You loved yuor monkey toy that you got.  There are so many different things to do on that one little toy!


In fact I think you were happy with all the goodies you got for Christmas!


I think you look adorable in all your new clothes!!  Your aunt Jennie got you a bunch of new clothes!!  You has some you can wear now and some you will grow into in a few months!!


Alyssa I just love your chicken legs!!!  You are so different from the boys!!  Both boys were so chunky and full of rolls but I don’t think there is one roll on your body!!  You are super long but you are very lean as well!! 


You love to make faces with your tongue!!  It is so cute!




You are developing such a sweet personality!!  Everyone just loves you!


Of course you still love to wrinkle that nose!


You are still enjoying the activity table on your blue chair!  It will usually keep you occupied long enough for a school session with the boys!  :-)


You are finally growing some hair!!!  I am starting to be able to put bows in your hair…the thickest part of your hair is still towards the back of your head but I am thinking in another few weeks we will be able to snap a bow on the front part of your head :-)  Hopefully in time for Easter?!?!?


You have really made progress in your eating solid foods!!  You love to eat now.  You are eating any baby food we give you but you are so happy when we feed you “real” food!  You LOVE sweet potatoes! 

You also love the baby puffs.  You are doing such a good job of grasping them and getting them to your mouth!

You have even eaten a few cheerios and goldfish crackers.  You do so well crunching them with your now 6 front teeth (4 on top and 2 on bottom).

You have survived what the boys have fed you as well :-)  Aaron loves to feed you.  We have to keep a constant watch on him!  I think the favorite thing you enjoyed him giving you was a fried okra at a restaurant one night.  You were so happy with that okra!  In fact so happy that I just watched to see how you would handle it and you gummed it down until you were able to swallow it!

I was a bit concerned at first about your eating habits but I am no longer!  You are going to be a good eater!!  :-)

You are also really starting to chatter.  You are saying all different consonant  sounds and you have gotten real good at saying “MaMa”  :-)

I love you so much “Missy” (my new nickname for you!).  You are such a delight to have in our lives!!
