The last three months have been filled with lots of fun firsts. Anabelle is now able to sit on her own, chew food, feed herself and put a spoon in her mouth, stand with support, and scoot around on the floor on all fours. She is out of her infant carrier and is in a "big girl" car seat and has a hugh chair that she eats her meals in. She still has no teeth but is getting a lot more hair so mommy can finally put bows in her hair. I think that she looks like such a big girl in her high chair.
In January, we enrolled Anabelle in a month long water babies swim class. We had tons of fun and Anabelle really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, though, we only made it to half of the classes since she ended up being sick the last two weeks in January. The important thing is that she looked awfully cute in her swimsuit!
This year (and every year) we spent Thanksgiving with my family in Little Rock. Don and I were very brave and DROVE to Little Rock with our 6 month old in the backseat. Surprisingly, she did very well and slept almost the entire time both ways. The drive takes about 5 hours, which is a pain. But, I actually thought that it was a lot less stressful than hauling a baby with all of her stuff (car seat, stroller, bag, bottles, etc) through the airport. We had 2 wonderful Thanksgiving meals on Thursday, and got to spend a lot of quality time with the fam. All in all, it was a nice trip.
