So much, and yet so little

It seems like the days just fly by, even though we aren't really *doing* anything. Aurora keeps changing and growing every day, and every day brings a new accomplishment. Lately she's been working really hard on rolling over and/or sitting up - anything to relieve the horrible boredom of lying on her back. Not that we leave her on her back much at all - she's usually up playing or walking around with us, or sitting in the Bumbo watching us eat (that Bumbo is a LIFESAVER - I don't know how parents didn't starve to death before it was invented!) But for the few minutes we lay her down, she's struggling mightily to get back up. It's so cute to watch her do her 'ab crunches' - she works so hard at it! And I predict that she'll be rolling over (back to tummy) any day now. She's also started to reach for her toys - next thing you know she'll be grabbing a hapless dog who wanders too near. And the laughing!! Oh my gosh - hearing her laugh is the best thing ever. Every day I discover a new tickle zone, and she just laughs her head off! And yesterday she and I went to Petsmart to pick up some more dog food, and she spent quite a few minutes eyeing the finches and parakeets in their cages. We might just have to get a bird or two for her when she's older (to go with the three dogs, six fish and one turtle) . And we're still working on tummy time - she's getting better at it, in fact if you put your hands behind her feet while she's on her tummy, she'll push off and scoot all the way across the floor! I guess we better start babyproofing the house now...
Aunt Doreen and Cousin Daria are coming to visit for Easter weekend, and she's really excited to show off all her new talents!
