24 Weeks

Canaan is getting more fun all the time.

  • I have the hardest time trimming her fingernails. No matter how tightly I think I am holding her fingers, she can always wiggle them.

  • She has been splashing more in the bathtub. One night this week she splashed soap on Max's nose.

  • She likes looking in the mirror but mostly looks at who is holding her rather than noticing herself.

  • She gets excited when she sees her bottle.

  • She is really entertained by other kids.

  • I forgot to mention that I started eating nuts when Canaan turned 5 months old. I have really enjoyed being able to eat peanut butter. Thankfully, she has not had any reaction to the nuts.

    This week I got some pictures of Matthew reading to her, Canaan playing on her play gym/mat, the day we thought she was getting a cold that thankfully only lasted one day(wearing the green polka-dot pjs, doesn't her nose just look stuffy?), what happens when Max wants to be included in floor playtime, and Canaan with her bunny. I just can't get enough of this girl.

    23 Weeks

    We had Canaan's 5 month pictures taken on Thursday. I have to say I have been disappointed the last two times we've been to Target to get her pictures taken. Both times we have waited around 30 minutes past our appointment time for pictures. That is rough on a baby girl who doesn't like to just wait around. I decided to get her 5 month pictures taken in her Halloween costume. I guess it's a good thing I did because she didn't even end up wearing it on Saturday. She was not a fan of the hood around her head. She's the cutest little ladybug I've ever seen! I am going to try to get some more pictures of her at home wearing her costume since this is the only time she'll be able to wear it.

    Canaan won this cute pillowcase dress from Wendy. It should fit her really well next year, but I couldn't resist putting it on her Halloween. Thank you Wendy for making the dress and Melinda for signing Canaan up to win it!

  • Canaan has been better about riding in the car, but she still does not enjoy being in the car seat for long.

  • When you carry her facing your body, she will turn to see where you are going.

  • She is very entertained by the tv and computer monitor. I'm afraid she gets way too much exposure to both of these.

  • She still sucks her thumb if she is sleepy.

  • She likes doing the Hokey-Pokey with Mom.

  • We sing songs like "Jesus Loves Me", "My God is so Big", "The Hokey-Pokey", "I've Got so Much...to be Thankful for", and "Jesus Loves the Little Children".

  • As much as I hate to admit it, Matthew is right when he says Canaan likes blankets over her face. I don't like blankets to be over her face because I worry about her breathing (rather not breathing).

  • When she is on the changing table, she has started putting her hand on the wall to feel it.
  • Matthew scared/startled Canaan while we were on the couch in the basement one night. After she jumped, she just laughed. I am in trouble if she likes to be scared. It will then be two again little ole me. I hate being scared!

  • We spent Halloween at some friends' house watching UT and OSU. So rather than wear her costume, Canaan wore her UT dress/cheer leading outfit that Grandma sent her. I'll have to get another picture of her so you can see the whole outfit. She's a cutie!
