mel in motion...

Well, Mel is in my favorite "baby stage" right now. She is on the move. As you probably read in a previous post, she has been crawling for a while, but within the last week she has started to pull up on things. She is only 6 1/2 months old!!!!!!! I guess she thinks she needs to keep up with her big sis. She is a little more adventurous then b was when she was a babe. B never really bothered anything that wasn't hers. Melaney on the other hand, is into EVERYTHING. The likes playing with the lamp cords, the protective covers on the outlets, the VCR door.........the list goes on and on. I might actually have to babyproof with this one!!:) Yesterday when I came downstairs from putting B to bed for her nap, she had pulled herself up on the stairs. Don't you just love the smile?? She was so proud of herself. We tried to put the baby gate up, but B didn't like it because she wasn't able to go up and down the stairs. I think Brad is going to make one that swings open and closed. I love being married to such a handyman. He can fix anything!!

In this picture she was trying to get B's basketball that was on the other side of this stool...she just climbed right over it.

She is sitting up on her own...still takes a few spills every once in awhile.

I couldn't post without a picture of B...

she climbed in her exersaucer...

B had to do the same...She moved her head right when I snapped the photo so her head is blurry!:(

total sweetness...

I am kicking myself in the rear for not being in very many photos with my kids. I am usually the one behind the camera, plus I don't really like having my picture taken. Well, I have given that up. Life is too short and I have decided that I need to be in more pictures with my kiddos. This is a lovely self portrait. I set the timer on my camera and placed it on the mantle. Not the best photo, but it is a memory!!:) Melaney loved the beeping noise that the camera made so getting her to smile was easy!!(she smiles all the time anyway!!) I think she might have inherited that trait from me!!

I was talking to a friend the other day who just had her second child. Adding a second child to the family is a challenge. Several people have told me that and I quickly found out it is true. It is a lot easier now, but those first 3 months were hard. I felt like I was neglecting b because I couldn't devote all my attention to her. So, I guess what I am trying to say is...if this friend is reading this, trust me...it does get better, and I am thinking of you!! The last 6 1/2 months have flown by.
