What's new: This was the month of change and growth for Andi! She cut her first tooth and has another one right next to it already swelling up. She rolled over both back to belly and belly to back. She now rollie pollies herself all around the living room. She gets upset when she's on her tummy too long and forgets she knows how to roll over. We have to go save her just for her to roll herself back as soon as we walk away. She has started rolling herself over in her crib too and prefers to sleep on her tummy. We weened her off being swaddled at night. That was a rough weekend, but it was necessary now that she is rolling. It's quite adorable to see that little tush in the air while she snoozes. :) Tonight she found her feet for the first time! In the tub she had both feet in her mouth just smacking away. She is still eating baby food and really seems to love everything we give her. She is on a rotation of avocados, bananas, and sweet potatoes. We're introducing peas this week and she loved apples when we tried those, but I don't think her tummy was quite ready for all that fiber so we'll try again when she's a little older. Andi also started playing in her exersaucer this month and LOVES it. She plays with all the toys and makes all the sounds and lights go. It's adorable.
Mom & Dad update: Only 3 weeks left of school and then I get to be home with my baby! :D I'm so excited and ready. We are hoping to go home this summer as soon as we can. Crockett and I are both so in love with Andi it sometimes blows us away. We talk about how surreal it feels sometimes that we have her. Our lives have changed and everything revolves around her, but we wouldn't change it. She is the best thing that ever happened to us.
