Catching Up

Here’s some stuff from the last month.  We have been a little crazy busy, but Baby C has still been growing and doing new things and being incredibly cute. :)

Video of Baby Girl working on rocking and scooting backward (in preparation for crawling) on Christmas Day:

And Caroline got to go to Mom’s office the week after Christmas.  Neither of us got much done.

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?

(That one wasn’t at the office, but getting ready to go…)

A little blurry, but still looking cute at Mom's office

Hanging out with Benji on the quilt at home.

Another big milestone: Caroline outgrew her infant carseat, so we moved her to the “big girl” convertible seat.  I did a TON of research and really stressed over which seat to get, especially since one of our front seats has basically been out of commission since we’ve had the infant seat behind it (our car’s not too big, if you didn’t know…).  We went with a less popular (read: not a Britax) seat, and we are thrilled with it.  It’s a Maxi Cosi Priori.  It fits perfectly in the middle of our back seat and we can still both sit in the front – hooray!  And apparently Caroline likes it!

Another big first: first ride in a grocery cart.  She LOVED it.  Looked like a big kid on a roller coaster.  So fun. :)

Whole Foods shopping cart = baby thrill ride

We also got to have our first family meal in a restaurant.  We went to Blue C Sushi on New Year’s Eve, and it was great!  Caroline was entertained by the sushi going by on the conveyor belt and eating her sweet potatoes and pears (or whatever purees were in her bowl), and her parents got to enjoy a nice dinner with her.

You might have to turn your head sideways to see this one, but here it is:

And then we had a fantastic New Year’s Eve celebration with some friends, including their little boy who’s just as cute as can be:

Okay, there’s more, but I’ll have to catch up the rest later.  Caroline learned to crawl last night, and it’s ADORABLE.  She’s not graceful or smooth at all, so it’s like the incredible hulk crawling.  She kind of high steps and kicks her leg out behind her.  Tough to explain – you really must see it.  I’ll post more soon. :)
