It is so much fun to watch Serenity grow! She’s learning so many things, and so quickly! We have started having lots of play time on the floor. She still loves tummy time, but now sometimes she just wants to lie on her back and kick and wave arms!!! She looks at her toys, like her butterfly and tigger rattle. I’ve been singing the Wheels on the Bus and doing the leg movements. She smiles a lot for that!!
I’ve been reading her the soft baby books she got from Abbey and Andrea. She likes the cow and the pig from her farm book, and the whale from the ocean book. She really stares at them!
Serenity can roll from her tummy to her back! I kind of think the stars have to align properly for her to do it, but it’s been three times now so it’s more than just a fluke… It scares her a little, she cried after she landed on her back. But it’s so amazing all the things she is learning to do!
She’s a real talker! All the time she’s awake, she’s making little noises. Coos, squeals, and all other kinds of little talking sounds. She really sounds like she’s telling me something =) And sometimes, like when she has the hiccups, it sounds like she’s complaining =) So funny!
Eric has been taking her into the bathroom so she can be soothed by the white noise when she’s having trouble falling asleep… it’s funny, the noise Eric hates the most Serenity loves =)
We went to see Aisha and her Mom in Napa. It was so great for her to get to meet Serenity! Eric drove us (for which I am still grateful!) She actually did sleep in the car on the whole way there, and she let me pacify her on the way back so it wasn’t as miserable as I thought it would be! And when we got there she was all smiles for Aisha and her Mom =)

| I wanted to take some pictures today, so I put Serenity in her first dress! I was afraid that she would outgrow the dress, but as you can see she’ll be able to wear it for a while yet =) I love this dress, it was almost the only piece of her wardrobe that I bought myself =) I had a hard time picking which pictures to post, these are my favorites. When you consider that I took 92 and then Ahn took another 70 or so, I did a fairly good job of cutting back.
And this is Serenity saying, “enough pictures for today!”
