Back to Blogging

Did you miss us? I sure missed blogging...but it was good to have a break. We had a great vacation! I'll be posting more pictures and info the next few days, but here are a few "new" items little Morgan has surprised us with lately:

* Morgan has suddenly started clapping! I have done lots of "patty cake" with her and we always clap and cheer when she does something extra good or new. At the beginning of our vacation I saw her putting her hands together with her fingers outstretched (instead of folded). By the end of the week she was actually making a clapping sound. So cute!

* She is officially "army-crawling" now. She pulls herself across the floor with sometimes a little help from a foot. I hear this is a step to real hands-and-knees crawling. She's making progress.

* All of a sudden her naps have become longer and she goes to sleep with less resistance. This may be due to a few things. One is that on vacation her night-time sleep was not great and we're still struggling with this now that we're home. The second reason may be that I think I've finally figured out the best timing for the naps...no later than 2.5 hours from when she last woke up, but usually 2 hours. Then, the same for the next nap. Her naps have been lasting from 1 hour to 2.5 hours. Yippee! Hopefully this won't change once we get her nights back on track.

* She has started to do what we call the "scrunchy-face" where she squeezes her eyes shut and crinkles her nose. Sometimes this is with a big smile, sometimes not. It just cracks us up!

She is getting so big and is cuter than ever! I'm glad you had a good trip and can't wait to hear more! :)
