Babies grow up fast

Baby's dad hasn't had many opportunities to work lately, with the harsh weather we're having; but today he's working.  This means the Little Princess is here, for the first time in a week.  Every time we are away from her for that long, she comes back with a lot of new stuff she has learned.  
Last Wednesday we would spread a blanket on the living room floor, lay her on it with some toys, and there she would stay, playing contentedly.  Today she rolled off the blanket and clear across the living room.  This means there will be no more laying her on our bed for naps, because she could easily roll off.  We now have the Pack-n-Play set up in the bedroom.  A while ago I laid her down in it with a couple of soft, cuddly toys, and she went to sleep without so much as a whimper.  
sound asleep

Now, to be honest, she might have gone to sleep on her own two months ago, but I love rocking her and singing her to sleep so much, I just never gave her the opportunity.
She can reach for her pacifier and put it in her mouth, not that she's all that worried about her pacifier.  The only time she really likes it is when she's going to sleep.  Sometimes she sucks on her fingers or thumb, but it doesn't appear as though it's going to be a problem.  

I can't wait for springtime, when we can take her outside:  She can watch the chickens, pet the cows, and go for a tractor ride every day.  I'll put the Pack-n-Play at the edge of the garden and she can watch me tilling.  It will be so much fun!

Thoughts of spring and you tilling the garden is a good thing for sure. Having a baby around to enjoy certainly is a plus.

She is a precious little thing, for sure. With this harsh winter spring will be glorious.

You are having a wonderful experience with her and she a very fortunate baby to have Cliff and you as her caregivers.
