Vanessa had her very first tooth pop through her gums yesterday! That seems like a very big step to me. What a big girl!

So Vanessa has had a few grouchy mornings this week, with her teeth coming in and a slight cold that she and I have been sharing. After her morning nap, though, she's been so cheerful and active. I guess she's just not a morning person!

You might not be able to tell from this picture, but Vanessa is asking to be picked up. She just happens to be holding her socks which I let her play with. I laugh because sometimes it seems like she can't drop certain objects when she wants to. She shakes them and shakes them, but they're still tight in her grasp!

Vanessa has been impressing me and daddy with her new ability to sit up from a crawling position. That's what she's about to do here.

Oh, I have to tell you about her new crawling technique! We call it her bunny-hop flop. She bunches her knees under her body, much like in the picture above, and then she pushes off with her feet, throws her arms up in the air, and does a belly flop on the floor. Sometimes she does it so hard it makes her grunt! It's not a terribly effective crawling technique, but it does get her to go forward. I hope she'll find a much gentler method soon!

Mommy loves Vanessa SOOOO much!
