She's a Maniac

Maniac on the floor!  And she's scootin' like she's never done before.

Aunt Sissy's Visit

So I just read an article in the latest Time magazine about the art of brevity in blogging and other online endeavors, so in that spirit I will try to keep my ramblings short - though it's not really my style . . .

Aunt Sissy came to visit, much fun was had - first stop, Disneyland!

Little bit was a doll the whole day - only getting fussy once due to the fact we all forgot how long it had been since we ate - She loved looking at everything - it is so strange to think she will have no memory of it!  Isa got a baby Dumbo toy, and thought it was the coolest thing.  It was so fun to watch her get to know him.  I'm including a lot of photos of that here for the grandparents.  

We had such a great time with Sissy - we went to the beach, where Isa finally got to put her toes in the water:

She loved it and wanted to play longer, but she will just have to wait until she's old enough for sunscreen!  

We also did lots of shopping and just had fun hanging out.  Isa was going through a very funny screaming phase that week.  She wasnt upset, just screaming because she liked the sound I guess.  Sissy dubbed her Screamy McScream Muffin.  It really was over the top - I'll try to get a video uploaded when I get more than two seconds.  Anyway,  we really wish she could have stayed longer!  Here are the rest of the photos!  Love you Aunt Sissy!

Little Mowgli

Isa is just determined to sit up - but isn't quite there yet.  She simply refuses to lie back, so she loves the boppy - which is pretty cute in her Sunday outfit:

But I think she looks cutest when she is being little Mowgli - all legs and arms.  She is getting pretty steady - which makes diaper changes fun!  We love our little monkey girl!

A Week of Firsts

This has been a pretty fun week of firsts.  Just yesterday, we got a jumperoo for our little bit.  She was fascinated watching Francisco put it together, and when she finally go to play in it - priceless!  She is just barely big enough, but she loves to bounce.  As usual, she is camera shy, but we did some good pics and a little video.

But the big news is last Tuesday we had baby's first earthquake!  It was a 5.4, and it shook the house pretty good.  We had just finished up giving Isa her first taste of rice cereal - she was all cleaned up but still strapped in the chair.  Francisco picked up the chair and booked it outside during the second wave of rumbling!  Isa was completely un-phased by the earthquake, but she loved the cereal!
Actually, it was hard to tell if she really liked the cereal, or if she just liked gumming the spoon and eating like a big girl . . . either way, she was incredibly cute in her pink bib (more photos here)!

Since then she has sucked down some banana, mango, watermelon and more rice cereal - but the real fun started tonight when she had some peas.  I'll let the video speak for itself:

Little bit also had her first piano lesson with daddy this week - her style is a little avant guard, but we think she is a natural!

And that is our week of "Baby's First's"
