Sister and I built castles and robots with our building blocks. She loves to play with the building blocks but really enjoy it when she has someone building things with her. She tells me which block to use next and we build all sorts of cool things. She couldn't wait to show off our cool robots but when Bubba got the camera out she refused to look.
If there ever were a mommy girl, Thumper is one. She plays fine by herself until she sees her mommy and then she just can't help herself, she's gotta hang onto me. I sat in the floor to play the drums with her and she just couldn't stay away. At times, it's very flattering and I treasure it, but other times I wish that she would not be quite so clingy. I try to enjoy it because I know it won't always be this way.
Once a coach, always a coach. Once you've been on that field and coached it's hard to completely step back and let it go, especially when you know your kid and his abilities better than anyone. No matter how good the coach is, he still doesn't know your kid like you do. I know when he's doing something wrong and how to easily correct it. I can just say one or two words and he knows exactly what I'm talking about. I'm so blessed with such an awesome kid!!!

Thumper and I had to drive the truck today while Daddy and Bubba seined. Sister was a big help too. The Snugli is not very comfortable at all, especially since Thumper has gotten so big. I have a Moby and I truly love that thing but didn't think about using it until it was too late. The boys caught the fish they needed and the girls and I stayed bundled up. All in all, it was a good and productive day!

She's never been much for puree's. She's more of table food kind of girl. Tonight while we were eating she kept getting excited and grunting every time she saw someone with the corn on the cob. I finally decided to let her give it a whirl. She doesn't have any teeth so she can't really bite it but wheres the harm in letting her suck on the cob and enjoy that wonderful sweetness? She loved it! She gnawed on that cob until she sucked all of the pure sweetness out and then she was happy! :)

Milestones are so bittersweet. It's so exciting watching her hit each and every milestone. She's learning and growing so fast. On one hand, it's amazing, but on the other hand, it makes me sad. My baby isn't such a baby anymore, she's growing up. I already miss her being an infant. It is so important to me to hang on to every memory and every step of her journey. Before I know it she'll be walking and talking.

She sees mommy and Bubba on the computer all the time and she always wants to join in on the fun. She's helped herself to my computer more times than I can count. For Christmas we bought her a pink computer of her very own. She loves it and plays with it all the time but it hasn't kept those little fingers from mommy's computer. :)
