Playtime with Daddy

Grammy Cathy sent me a package! What's in it???

Oh, my favorite! New Clothes! Sure is pretty!

I spent a lot of time outside working on the garden this past weekend. Mario and Stella had playtime! This is what happens when it's play time with Daddy! I came up to take a shower and he was sitting on the floor with her and I think he had every single small toy hooked up to her play mat!

It looked like a toy jungle!!!

Well she is pretty much sitting up on her own now. I still sit next to her because she easily will topple over but she's getting pretty steady. This week she has started pulling herself across her play mat. She can't do it on the carpet because she can't get a good grip with her hands on the carpet. If she's on her play mat she will grab onto it in front of her and pull herself to what she wants. Every once in a while she will pull her legs up in the crawling position but she's starting to get interested in getting herself to what she wants so I'm sure it won't be long. We've had no teething bouts lately and still no teeth. I'm just baffled how they can bother her for so long off and on without surfacing. There is this little white thing STILL on the top left. At the Dr. someone was saying it could be a calcium deposit. Who knows I gave up trying to look for them, when they come they come. Although, I KNOW she has been teething off and on since 3 months because she shows ALL the signs. I guess they just don't want to show will be strange to see her with teeth when they do though. On the other hand the hair fertilizer we've been using is working. (Just Kidding!!!) My friend Jen hadn't seen her in about 2 weeks and even commented yesterday she has more. It's not really getting longer, just thicker. I'm not quite sure on the color yet. In the bath when it's wet it looks really dark, but then like adults when it drys it turns pretty light. At least for now when it comes in I think it is going to be a light brown. She sure did get some of her grandma's genes, on both sides!! I'm still waiting for those strong Italian genes to come through. Hopefully it will be in her coloring as she gets older!!! Light blue eyes with the tan skin! We'll be in trouble later! We know the girl gene from Mario's came through because we have ALL boys on my side. 3 nephews and my little bro Parker. Mario's side has all girls. We are really going to have to do some investigating to get our boy genes to win out next time! If anyone has suggestions please send them my way. Don't worry though, you have a while!!!! Just for future reference! ;)
I am really excited for the summer, it's going to be great! We are looking forward to a visit from Mario's sister! They are coming from Austria and we can't wait for her and Stella's cousins, Chelsea and Chloe to get here! They'll stay with us part of the time to visit and I think we are all doing a beach trip with Mario's mom also. We are looking into cruises right now for a family trip towards the end of summer and will probably finalize that this week. Something else to look forward too! Then in Oct. I am going to go to Seattle to visit family and meet my new nephew who should arrive the middle of August! There is also Stella's first birthday! Whew! A lot to be excited about! Have a great week from the Scomas! :)
