Surprise for Mommy!

I put Ry in her crib this morning for a nap and I got into the tub. About 10 minutes later, I heard her screaming bloody murder. When I flipped the light on in the nursery, I saw her STANDING in her crib!! She had one hand on the rail and the other one in the air, just hollering to beat the band! And she's only 7 months old!!!!!

She's has the strongest arms and legs of any baby I've ever seen in my life!!

Just last night, I had hubby lower the mattress in the crib because I'd seen her on her knees holding the rail and I knew it wouldn't be long before she was standing, but I didn't think it would be TODAY!! LOL
Feb. 25-
I took this pic today of her standing in her pack & play!

Makeshift corral

I've been trying to get some computer work done this week and Miss Ryleigh is into everything in here...pulling the books off the bookcase, opening the filing cabinet, getting stuck under daddy's desk, etc. She loves to get under the chair but then gets mad when she can't get on her hands and knees under there. SO I had to corral her someway!!

Scary day

My excitement for the day...Ry is crawling now. Was playing with her toys...I thought it was too quiet...looked and she was gone...she'd crawled over to one of my long plants...a philodendron and was eating a leaf! I had to dig part of it out of her mouth. That plant is poisonous! Called the DR... he said call poison control.

Poison control told me to watch for redness and swelling in her mouth and give her water to drink.

Went and got a bottle with water for her, came back and she'd taken this huge spongy thing that she's always played with and she'd bitten a hunk out it and I had to dig THAT out of her mouth!

Sigh. It's been a long afternoon, but she doesn't seem any worse for the wear! lol

She just started crawling, so I've got lots of work to do...baby proofing!

Oops...she just banged her head.......byyyyyyyyeeeeeeee

Sissy in the sink...lol

I've always given Ry a bath in the tub in her little tub but since she's such a good sitter, I thought I'd try the kitchen sink tonight. She loved it! She wasn't sure at first, but ended up having lots of fun and it was much easier on my back! lol

Helping, dad's way

Ry has bowel issues and won't "go" unless she eats baby prunes. Well, after not going for several days and after giving her 2 servings of prunes today, she went and I mean big time! All up her back...thru her sleeper...I was gagging and praying God would help me open a new pack of wipes while keeping Ry from putting her hand in her mouth after she's stuck it in poop....when all was said and done, I just wadded the sleeper and wipes all up in a blanket and left if for daddy to deal with. Mind you, I'm trying to get over bronchitis and can't catch a breath as it is....

So, daddy gets home an hour later and I explain the situation. He takes one look at the mess and says "Oh dear" LOL.

He goes outside...comes back in...I'm like... "What are you doing?" Well, he said, the sleeper was so nasty I couldn't put it in the washer so I laid it in the driveway and hosed it off with the garden hose!".

I'm like, "It's 30* outside!"

"Well, we'll just have a slick spot in the drive, huh?" he said, and walked off, proud of his accomplishment with the stinky sleeper!
