Visit from Grandma

My mom has been visiting with us for the past couple of days and Hannah has been having lots of fun with her. Grandma, of course, will do things that John and I would probably not do. I.e. this video. Hannah likes putting her head down and watch you put your head down. Over and over again. I started taping this about 15 minutes into this eating session and I think it went on for another 5 minutes or so after I stopped taping. Needless to say, John and I would have tired of this game after about 1 minute. Not grandma. There are no limits :)

Back Home


Hannah and I made it back home safely from our trip to Philadelphia which was wonderful. We originally went for my grandmother's 80th birthday party, which was a hit, but I was able to see lots of friends and family. Unfortunately, my camera broke while I was there, so pictures are a little limited and I have to rely on other people for pictures that week. I did manage to get a picture of Hannah all dressed up for the party with my phone, which you see here, in addition to a cute video of Hannah right after her bath. As you've seen in previous posts, she really likes her bath. So this is an "after" video of how happy she is after her bath. (It's a little long, I think 2-3 minutes, so beware!). After I get some more pictures of this last week, I'll post again. I'll sign off with one last comment regarding our very long trip home. We left for the Newark, NJ airport at 6:45 AM on friday morning and didn't arrive home in OKC until 14 hours later. You might think that Hannah, who napped twice for 30 minutes, might be a bit cranky after that long ordeal. The fact is that my mother and I were crankier than this 9 month old. Go figure! :)

Bon Voyage



Hannah and I are getting ready for our trip to Philadelphia, which we are both excited about! Hannah has been helping me pack, as you can see, and then when I told her how long the flight is (it's very hard to get anywhere from Oklahoma City) she suggested we drive! Although she looks very cute behind the wheel, I then told her how many hours it took to drive there, and she decided that a plane may in fact be better. In addition, I thought I would show a bath time video of Hannah. She LOVES bath time. You might think this video is in fast forward. It's not. It's real time. Splashing is just that much fun!

My project




So, probably the ones who are actually following this blog already know about this, but I'll post it anyway. Hannah needed a hat, mittens for the cold weather approaching and a sleep sack to fit her growing legs. I had some old fleece leftover from a project gone awry many years ago, so I used that and made them all! She was a wonderful model and it was fun to see what I could do. When John suggested I make the sleep sack, I thought he was crazy. But then I thought, oh well, I have nothing to lose, I'll give it a try. And the results were pleasing. I may not be ready for etsy or anything, but they'll do for Hannah!

Commando Crawling


So, I may have already shared this with some of you, but Hannah is commando crawling and is enjoying every minute of it. I have found my self having to vacuum and sweep way more than I would like because anything that is not nailed down goes promptly in her mouth. I've even found myself emptying trashcans on a daily basis because the little troublemaker will scoot so fast out of my sight to have knocked over the trashcan...and you know what comes next.

New Blog

So this is my first attempt at blogging. I'm not really much of a blogger, but my daughter has made me do many things that I never thought possible. So here I am, well, here we are. The final decision came after Hannah cut her first tooth today! I didn't really think it was mass email worthy, but for some of you out there (granny, grandma, etc) this might really be newsworthy. So I thought, what the heck. I'll blog, for Hannah's sake. And away we go...
