Teething is upon us in a big way. Poor little one is chomping on everything. Frozen washcloths, frozen blueberry waffles (big hit), my finger, spoons- everything & anything! Her favorite chomp toy though is a big wooden one in the shape of Nebraska. I get a kick out of it every time I see her chomping away on the panhandle.

I'm coming out of hibernation. Willa is no longer a little baby. She's almost 7 months old now and every day I pinch myself because I just can't believe how fast time has flown by. I have been the ultimate slacker mom when it comes to updating friends and family on our latest happenings. With spring upon us comes along a new resolution to be better at posting Willa snapshots and stories.
It's not that we haven't been busy over here, in fact it's been quite the opposite. Our little bean has her parents genes and has become a master traveler. She's managed to make her way to Mexico, Arizona (twice!), Nebraska (twice!), San Francisco and in a week from now she'll put that passport to use as she flies over the pond to London. This is what happens when you live far away from family and friends!!!
Willa is pretty much a roly poly these days. She can roll from one side of the room to the other in about 10 seconds, which doesn't allow mom a lot of time to make a cup of tea in the morning. She's not quite sure about sitting up. Instead she wants to stand on her legs and if we try to sit her down she locks her knees insisting on us holding her in a standing position. This is the face she makes when she "stands".
Another thing that has developed is her beautiful blue eyes. I give her daddy all the credit on this one. It's hard to believe that her eyes were almost black the first few weeks of her life. I mean, her entire pupil was black! Now she has the most gorgeous blue eyes with a white star pattern inside.

We spent the week over the New Year holiday down in Puerto Vallarta with my family. We rented a house which overlooked the coast and pretty much ate guacamole the entire time. Willa had her first swimming experience which went pretty well. She actually got into the not-so-very hot tub instead of the pool because the water was to0 chilly. She loved it which made us all smile.

Yes, Willa is almost four months and I'm just now getting around to posting some photos of her nursery. I do have a good excuse though.... her early arrival. We didn't have the bedding, a rocker or a changing table when we brought her home from the hospital! So, it's been a work in progress. I absolutely love spending time in her sweet nursery now. Everything about it makes me want to smile. Of course, she's the best part.
The illustration that sits on the bookshelf was done by my talented cousin, Katherine. The words "cute as can be baby of mine" are lyrics from the Disney movie Dumbo.
Jonathan and I worked on the photo project above the dresser for hours and hours. Hanging 12 frames together wasn't as simple as I had envisioned. We selected various photos from our travels, wedding and shots of ourselves when we were little.
