Week 42 - March 11 - 16, 2011 - 41 weeks old

Hey Mom

I had a busy week this week.  I got to go to the Seattle Aquarium and see Holly and Kayla!  While we were there, I saw LOTS of fun things and was fascinated by the fish tanks and all the bubbles (have I mentioned I LOVE bubbles in a fish tank?).  Mommy and Holly tried to get a picture of me and Kayla together, but I really thought it was more fun to lick Kayla's head and try to play with her hair...

I did get to touch a starfish while I was there.  I put my hands in the water and splashed and then Mommy helped me touch the starfish.  He was hard and scaly, but I wanted to keep on touching him!  He was so interesting!

After that, we went and saw an octopus - a real live one!  They also had a fake octopus that I could touch and feel the way his arms are and I was very very interested in that...I even tried to "eat" him, but Mommy didn't think that was such a good idea!
When we were leaving, we stopped in the gift store and Mommy bought me my very own stuffed starfish!  It has a zipper on each arm so it feels very much like the one I touched in the aquarium.  I think it's really cool.  Mommy also decided that since we were there, I should take up the family tradition of trying on silly hats wherever we go.  <SIGH>  That Mommy!

We had a really nice day together with Holly and was so much fun to see Kayla and get to play with her again!

Also, this week, Ms. Colleen came to visit at school and she brought Ms. Donna.  Ms. Donna hadn't seen me for about four months, so she was really surprised at how great I'm doing moving around.  I showed her how I like to move from laying down to sitting and how I like to climb up on things.  I showed them that I could go three crawls forward before I sort of got tired and just sit up.  Both Ms. Colleen and Ms. Donna were really happy with how I'm doing.  They said I'm exceeding their expectations...GO ME! :)

The day after my therapy session, Mommy and Daddy were working with me on my crawling before bath time.  I was doing pretty good, but then I did something AMAZING.  Daddy got me all ready to go into my bath and then he and Mommy were dilly-dallying.  I don't like when they do that.  Especially around bath time.  I do LOOOVE my baths!  So, I kept trying to get to Mommy to make her pick me up and take me to the bath.  Mommy thought she'd do a test and moved ALL the way across my bedroom.  I really needed her to pick me up and get me in that bath...time was wasting!  So, I crawled ALL THE WAY ACROSS MY ROOM!  Of course, I did it in my very own you can see below.  Mommy made me do it again for the video camera before she put me in my MUCH deserved bath...whew...way to make a girl work!  Well, now I can do it...I'm officially a crawler!  Again...GO ME! :)

So, as you can see it's been an awesome week.  I hope yours was too!  See you next week...
