Standing..... By herself!

Recently, Teresa's big thing is that she has been pulling herself up to standing and holding onto things. Occasionally she get's this glassy look in her eyes as she looks across the room at something that she wants to get to, almost as if she could just run across the room to get it at any moment. Well.....

This evening Teresa was standing and holding onto her play-stool (a Fisher-Price widget that she can hold onto and bat and it makes noises and such), with Daddy playing guitar and Mommy working on the computer. We were both watching her out of the corner of our eyes, when she let go.... and stood... for... like... five... seconds!

Yes, for those of you who are counting, that's less than two weeks since she was just rocking back and forth on her hands and knees... Next week we plan to have her staked out on a 5.10c

Welcome home... During our trip, Teresa began crawling and pulling herself up to standing: Probably the influence of getting to see her cousins wandering around! Anyway, we decided that when we got back we would start solid foods. So, here you go... Nectarines!

Teresa with Great-Grandma, Cousin Megan, and Great-Aunt Jane.

Next we stopped to see Mom's family in Ohio. Here is Teresa with her Great-Grandma Ruth.

Then we went to see Niagara Falls! Did I mention that Teresa likes water?

In New York, Teresa met up with her cousins Ben, Sara, and Taylor... What a bunch!

We also went whale watching... Teresa liked the splashing bow wave! We saw lots of puffins and briefly saw a minke whale too!

Teresa got to stick her feet in the water... It was a little cold!

The top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia NP.

We just got back from a whirlwind tour of the east coast... It wasn't quite the trip from hell, but perhaps the trip from heck. Don't get me wrong... It was alot of fun to see so many people, it's just easier when they all come to see you. :) The brief summary: Maine Wedding to Acadia NP to New York to Ohio to Pennsylvania. On the trip out, Teresa practiced her flute position with a pair of chopsticks.
