Step, step, step!

I know it's sideways (I can't figure out how to flip it -- tips anyone?), but other than that -- I don't know if I can even speak. There just are no words for how I am feeling right now.

Fat and happy

I cannot believe how much I am already showing and only 13 weeks! I should be in maternity clothes by October I think. But I'm happy because the nauseousness is finally going away!!!!! Now I can finally enjoy my pregnancy!

Megan is becoming so interesting lately. You can tell she's growing up but she does the funniest things -- or at least they are to us. We spend a lot of time laughing at her, sometimes it makes her mad too . . .

Megan's eating has improved SOOOO much since we did a very simple thing -- introduced her to the fork and spoon. She is now eating things she never touched before: yogurt, spaghetti, manicotti, all kinds of sticky things. It's amazing and wonderful. Of course we also have to deal with the screaming at every meal when she can't get her food to stick on the fork. I've decided toddler forks are useless because the tips are rounded and she can't spear things very well. So regular forks it is -- just like mom and dad -- and she loves it.

At Megan's 18-month check one of the things the docter asked was whether she can put on and take off her clothes. Does doing it wrong count? Everything still goes on her head! I'm grateful she can't take things off yet because she really likes being a naked baby after her bath and I have a feeling I would be hard pressed to keep her clothed.

I have no idea why this picture is blue! But I still had to post it because we've just recently been able to introduce Megan to the playground equipment and she's now getting good at it and you can just see how much she loves it. I tell her we're going to go slide and she's scooting for the door as fast as her bum will take her. Doesn't like the swings though . . .

Megan is making wonderful progress! SHe is cruising everywhere and standing up on her own -- although unfortunately she thinks it's great fun to fall down once she gets standing so no real practice there. I'm trying to get pictures and video to post but she likes the camera too much and comes after me when she hears it turning on.

Her new favorite phrase is "all right" but she likes to yell it. She sounds like a beligerent teenager even though she's complying as she says it --

Me: Megan it's time to go get in the bathtub.
Megan: All right! All right! All right! (As she's crawling in that direction because she actually loves the bath)

Question is -- if she sounds beligerent now, how bad will it actually be when she's 13? Yikes!
