Changes in appearance:

No real changes in appearance this week other than her hair growing longer and thicker. Still has beautiful blue eyes and light red/blondish hair.


She likes her new musical piano toy we bought for her last week. She enjoys grabbing the microphone on it and gnawing on it. She likes to be vocal. PUFFS!! She loves puffs! She still loves bath time and really loves looking at herself in the camera.


Daphs is an even tempered kiddo, for the most part. There are few things she doesn’t like.

New Milestones/Developments

I was sitting on the floor playing with her last week. The house was quiet except for the clanging of blocks hitting together. Sam opened the front door and she looked up to see him. She said “Da-Da!” We couldn’t believe it. We knew she has been associating names with people and things, but this was the first connection. YAY! She’s enjoying being on her tummy more and rocking back and forth on her hands and knees.

What we’re currently “working on:”

I give her the opportunity to pick up foods and puffs each time we eat. Working on crawling (simply by keeping her on her tummy and actively moving there).

Sleeping Habits:

Bedtime around 8pm. She’s gotten into the habit of waking around midnight for a few minutes to scream. She then calms down after Sam goes in there and tucks her back in. Wakes for the day close to 8am.

Eating Habits:

She LOVES squash. Enjoys green beans too. She isn’t a huge fan of peaches yet. We offer her food every few hours and a bottle if she isn’t satisfied. She still loves puffs.

Thoughts about the past week:

Was a good week. Sam had off last Friday so we were able to spend more time together. Sam and my 7 year anniversary was yesterday. What a beautiful thing.

Daphs and I are in a nice daily routine of reading together, playing together, and having “alone” time. She’ll play in her bouncer with toys while I read silently or do light cleaning.

The pups are so patient with Daphs. She’ll reach out her hands to touch them and they’ll just stare at her. I’m so thankful we spent the time to work with the dogs close up and in their face. We made sure to train them to allow us in their faces, in their food bowls, and to grab and play with them so they wouldn’t react adversely to babies or kids.

As I was playing piano, Sam was feeding Daphne. When I played louder, she turned her head and started yelling “daaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaababaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” and kept making loud noises along with me. We got a kick out of it.

Here’s her happy content rice-cereal face.
