She's a scootin, screamin bright eyed banana lovin, arm flappin beauty

She's on the move! LeAnne has started scooting around on the floor to get to what she wants and also is able to turn herself with her arms/upper body very well. She still get stuck but she's workin it out.

Yesterday she was playing with the ribbon on her pacifer holder and I took it away because she kept pulling the binki out of her mouth and I was tryin to get her to go to sleep -- she looked at me and screamed this scream I've never heard before. I was like are you kidding me? I tried to just ignore her but after a bit I was like okay not holding you anymore so I put her in her swing where she proceeded to fall asleep for a few hours. That was a HUGE blessing so I could apply for a project management support role job with the Army Corps of Engineers.
Yesterday was also the first day I'd tried bananas with her. Of course the first few bites shew was like WHAT? Then she really started to like them. She actually opened her moth for a few bites instead of me having to shove the spoon in her mouth. I think she ate more than she wore yesterday too.

She has also been sleeping better for a week now. She now loves to sleep on her tummy which kinda freaks me out but I know she can move her head from side to side. She was a little restless last night but overall she's sleeping anywhere from 6-8 hours at a time at night. SWEET! I don't know what to do with that much sleep. I am actually thinking about setting my alarm so I can get stuff done before she gets up. We'll see.

Only a few more days until Grandma Marica, Auntie Katie, and Grandma Nana come to visit us! Yahooooooooooooo!!!

I'll upload a few random pictures of her over the past few weeks. I tried to get a scooting video but it was LONG so I'll try again. First picture is a messy Marvina. On this day she was thinking NOPE I am not gonna eat mama. The next picture is of her in her baby rocking chair. We've moved from the bouncer to this. She really likes it cause she can sit up more. I can't believe she will be 6 months SOON.
We love you all TONS! Miss you! God bless

Look at that big girl in her big girl chair! So cute!!!!! I love the messy face too. And just when I thought that part was over, the self feeding of banana chunks began. Prepare yourself.

I just love how much hair she has!

Plus those cute little pink cheeks are to die for.

She's a keeper!
