The Many Faces of Christin

Despite my secret wishes, Christin has not stopped growing. She is quickly and boldly conquering new baby territory. Just look at these changes, most of them just in the past few weeks:

She is crawling fast, pulling up quick as a wink, and cruising along next to the furniture. She even likes to stand up in the bathtub! She has been steadily gnawing on her crib railing with her four sharp teeth, and this afternoon for the first time flipped herself out of the crib! Yikes! Fortunately she landed on a cushy pad on the floor but she wasn't too happy about it nonetheless. (Needless to say, we moved the crib to its lowest setting tonight before bed!) She's also had her first real spanking, *sigh*. Her appetite is monstrous! Tonight for supper she had one jar of pureed broccoli, one jar of applesauce, half of a cinnamon raisin bagel, broken into tiny bits, a container of yogurt, some banana-strawberry smoothie that the girls and I were enjoying and so she wanted some, a few small pieces of chicken, along with milk to drink. I'm not sure that I ate as much as she did for supper! She's crazy!

One thing hasn't changed, though; she is still as cute as a button! Here's a look at some of the many faces of Christin.There's my sweet happy girl! This next one reminds me slightly of a used-car salesman smile. C'mon, you know you want to buy it, right?!Oh, getting just a little shy and coy.

What? you want me to smile? No way! I've got better things to do.Well, ok, just for you mommy! I'll smile and grind my teeth together at the same time--I just love the noise that makes!
