Project BG2, Week 52 – This Means I’m ONE!

Project BG2, Week 52 – This Means I’m ONE!

Project BG2 3

I remember the first week I started this project. How could a year fly by so fast?! How could this tiny, 8lb 14oz little baby turn into this 22lb baby that’s ready to take on the world?!? Little hands and feet that grew each day into hands that grab everything and anything within reach and feet that so easily walk nowadays, she’s starting to run. A smile that could light… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 51 – Eat. My. Dust.

Project BG2, Week 51 – Eat. My. Dust.

Project BG2 1

I knew this girl would love walking! That’s all she does to get around nowadays. I guess she likes rollin’ with the big dogs, haha. It’s always so funny watching her walk, since she’s still a bit awkward with it and walks around like a robot. But, she’s a very skilled walker and doesn’t fall down anymore and can basically speed walk now. Oh, I’m sure running is around the… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 50 – I Can Talk, Too!

Project BG2 0

Wow! We’re at Week 50?!? How can this be?!?! I swear Father Time sped things up this year because I just can’t believe almost a whole year has gone by so quickly. There hasn’t been anything new on the motor skills front for sweet BG2, but she’s definitely honing those walking skills. She’s walking faster and with more grace than before and I’m sure she’ll be running around the house… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 49 – Kisses for Everyone!

Project BG2, Week 49 – Kisses for Everyone!

Project BG2 0

It seems like BG2 is learning new things every week now! Her walking is slowly getting better and more stable. She just took 6-7 steps from the couch to her walker last night, thank you very much. Still preferring to crawl furiously fast wherever she goes though, however, she’s becoming more confident and I’m almost positive she’ll have it perfected by her birthday. I’ve been helping her along by hold… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 48 – Look Who’s Walking!

Project BG2, Week 48 – Look Who’s Walking!

Project BG2 10

You read that right, my friends. My adorable, smart, crazy little baby girl took her first few steps this week (Tuesday, Jan 31st, to be exact)! How crazy and awesome is that?!? I was so shocked and amazed, and proud, of course. We’ve been getting her to stand here and there for the past couple of months and she skillfully mastered standing just fine. We’d often see her just standing… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 47 – Look Who Can Climb the Stairs Now

Project BG2 6

That’s right, folks. You simply can’t take your eyes off this little rugrat anymore. She’s cruising from couches to coffee tables, crawling under dining tables, opening up drawers, and now she’s climbing the stairs. For a couple weeks now she’s been lunging back and forth on the bottom step, trying to gauge her readiness and ability to climb the steps, most of the time simply managing to get one leg… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 46 – I’m Sick!

Project BG2 8

Well, this has been a bad week for BG2. She caught a cold and the poor baby has been coughing and throwing up left and right. It could be a combination of The Hubbi getting sick or the babysitter, but either way, someone got my baby sick! I’ve been trying my best to manage this and luckily it didn’t seem too bad because she only had a slight fever one… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 45 – Listen to the Sound of Applause

Project BG2 10

Yes, BG2 has finally mastered the art of clapping. It was a questionable task for a minute there. She was flailing her arms back and forth in a crazy way for a long time now, but this week her gross motor skills have fine-tuned a bit and you can actually hear the clapping sound. Yay! She seems to be very proud of this herself, smiling radiantly and clapping away whenever… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 44 – Yes, That Annoying Sound is My Baby Grinding Her Teeth

Project BG2 4

How can it be that at such a young age, BG2 has already adopted some weird and crazy habits?! Recently, she started this thing where she would pick at someone’s finger or nail, just casually while they’re holding her or even while she’s sleeping and a hand is nearby. She absentmindedly picks at a person’s nails or cuticles! I have to take the blame for that, I suppose, since I… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 43 – Cruising…

Project BG2, Week 43 – Cruising…

Project BG2 0

It is getting more and more difficult to get a good picture of this little busy-body. She is always on the move or squirming away from us. So much energy and excitement, we can barely keep up! In addition to crawling around like a maniac, BG2 loves cruising (walking around while holding on to things) and will often work her way around the coffee table trying to grab anything and… Read more »
