It Came!!! WOOT!

My Moby wrap came yesterday! I am so excited. It's beautiful and Aayla really seems to enjoy it. I was a little worried about how she would react since she hasn't been in a sling of any sort for months. She fusses a little while I am putting her in it (probably due to my inexperience), but once she's in, she's fine. I LOVE having my hands free to do stuff while I hold her (especially while she's asleep). She fell asleep in her sling three times today (all her naps), and I was able to get some stuff done! Here's Aayla's first nap in the wrap

In other news, there is no stopping the tide of mobility. Aayla is no longer content to crawl - she must be getting into stuff
and pulling herself up. She can sit on her knees for a long time at the TV stand poking at the VCR - very entertaining stuff!

My, How Time Flies. . .

when there's a cute little munchkin to play with all the time!!! I cannot believe that it has been over a month since my last post. I also find it hard to believe that Aayla is approaching the 8 month mark! So many changes. . . Aayla is now sporting two new teeth. They are both "through" the gums, but seem content to stay nubs - she can still do some damage with them though. She handled teething fairly well, it's just been such a drawn out and tiring process for her (and consequently, us). It took a little over a week for the first one to break through completely, and the second joined to the fun about the fifth day in. Poor little lady! She is also crawling. Not that cruising around the floor, running to keep up with her crawling, but crawling nonetheless. She seems to crawl in place since she takes as many steps back as she does forward. Our little girl is developing quite a sense of humor as well. I will often enter the room to find her swatting some toy with her pacifier and laughing at some secret joke - she is so much fun!!!
Aayla has outgrown her infant car seat. I was hoping for the convenience a little while longer (at least until it turned a little warmer than it is now), but she is such a chunk - I'm glad she stayed in it as long as she could. No more moving her from the car to the store, or home and keeping her asleep! I finally got around to ordering my baby "sling" because we switched car seats. I would rather carry her in a sling than my arms (they would fall off, I am sure), and I have been wanting to get a sling for a long time. I ordered the Moby D Wrap - it was supposed to be delivered today, but FedEx says "delivery exception, delivery not attempted, will attempt next business day" whatever that means. I'm a little disappointed, I was really looking forward to using it.
Well, little girl is getting fussy, so I'll close with a few pics.
