Laughs For Daddy

We have been trying for many weeks now to get Mikayla to laugh. She will smile at any little thing we do, but to get a good belly laugh has been difficult to say the least. This last week we went to a movie while Laura was babysitting and, low and behold, she got Mikayla to laugh. Of course we missed it, so we made it our goal to get her to laugh for us. Yesterday Steve was playing with her and got her going. I caught the tail end of it on video and it is so cute. She's so funny, as soon as she saw the camera she got quiet, but we got it anyway.
She's so cute!

Roley Poley

Mikayla has reached a major mile stone this last week. Last Tuesday, on the 7th, she rolled from her back to her stomach for the first time! We were so excited, but she wasn't too thrilled because she still hates being on her stomach. Then two days later she figured out how to roll from her stomach onto her back! It's fun that she can roll now, but diaper changing has become a new challenge and in the middle of the night she will roll onto her stomach and yell at us until we flip her back over. If we don't go right in to help her (she doesn't do it herself because she is too tired to do it) she gets very upset and definitely will let us know. I'm trying to catch it on video, but of course as soon as she sees the camera, she becomes immobile. I can't believe my little baby is growing up (tear drop).

Bed Time

Steve was putting Mikayla down for her nap and took these pictures of her. I thought they were so cute. She loves to hug her blankie and suck on her binkie. She is so good and puts herself to sleep, I don't know how we got so lucky.

One of Mikayla's new "tricks" is to pull herself up into a sitting position and then from there she likes to stand. She started doing this a couple of weeks ago and it's so funny when she has been standing for a while her little legs start to shake. You can tell her thighs are starting to burn and she has to sit down to take a break. Babies are so funny.
