As Promised

As promised, here are some recent pictures of Alli. Here she is eating some spaghetti. She is very much in the "I can do it all by myself" stage.

She loves it when we just let her go at it, but it sure does make for big messes!

This was a really fun snack, but she won't be eating this kind of yogurt snack again. It broke her out in a rash. Luckily it didn't affect her any. She stayed in a good mood in her bath and throughout the afternoon as it went away.
She LOOOOVES talking on the phone. Yes, she is sitting on the counter, sometimes we let her sit up there with us standing right there to eat a small snack or as the other parent prepares a meal. She thinks it is loads of fun. As soon as she starts moving around she has to get down though.

This is her and her friend M. This is at the indoor playground that they go and play at.

M is one day older than Alli. They are playing with M's socks and M has one in her mouth I believe! They do really well playing together.
Other news, Michael and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary yesterday! It was nice. We went out to IHOP for breakfast with Alli. Then we cleaned house really well (great fun!). We were getting ready for our new furniture. We are so excited to finally have furniture in our living room! Then our friends Jeremy and Natashia came over and watched Alli for us while we went out. We had dinner and then we went a bowled a game, then played a couple of games of air hockey in their arcade!! It was nice, we just went and fun.
The past two nights we have gotten Alli to sleep without nursing! This a HUGE improvement. The first night we had a LOT of resistance, last night a little less. We still nursed a bit throughout the night, but we know it won't all happen over night. We are using some tips that we got from Supernanny!
Well, I need to get up and do some laundry, but I wanted to follow through with my promise of pictures!

She is so cute! I'm glad to hear that the weaning is going better. That's great news and I'm sure it feels good to be seeing some progress. It reassures you that what you are doing is working and that you will get to where you want to be soon.
