I took this video a couple days ago and it makes me laugh.. She's playing with her penguin who has a mirror on his belly, and she's watching the light reflecting all over the room:

And her new favorite food is.....

Refried beans! She took one taste and just started shoveling them in.. it was pretty funny! But she's also been eating applesauce, pasta, chicken, and (ahem) cupcake frosting.... I know, I'm a bad mom - but I was rude enough to eat a cupcake in front of her! And she really loved that frosting, but I've learned my lesson and she's never going to have sugar before bed again! And just look at that Buddha belly - we could probably all lay off the cupcakes around here!

And today I was bored and trying to think of something to do with some fabric I bought on sale months ago, so I made this!
It's called a pouch sling - I found the directions here. It was very easy to sew - the hardest part was keeping a little monkey out from under the sewing machine! Please disregard the yellow plastic toy ring on it - I'm making a fabric tie to go there. So far I like it, I wore her in it to the grocery store today and it went okay - I may need to hem it just a little bit shorter so she rides higher up because I'm pretty sure it will hurt my back after a while. But it's definitely cooler than the wrap!

What cute pouch! I want to get one for the pool/shower. I love my wrap, though, and can't imagine trading that in, even in the heat!
I noticed you cloth diaper, which is one of my favorite parenting past times!
I have a give-away for some cloth diaper laundry detergent made by a friend of mine going on at my blog right now if you are interested!

She is sooo smart! And who doesn't like refried beans? Shows she has very good taste buds. She is just a cutie pie and I can't wait to see her, oops all of you again soon. Love you all, Doreen
