Last Day of Summer!

Okay I know it's not the last day of summer but it is my last day of summer vacation before I go back to work so it feels like the last day of summer! I'll still have the weekends and a couple Fridays but for the most part it's back to life as usual. I have kind of mixed feelings about going back. I've loved spending so much one on one time with Izzy and being able to go on play dates and work on developing her skills, but at the same time it'll be nice to do something other than play on the floor and try to get my 9 month old to say mama instead of dada! Today we started getting the house ready for Mimi and Papa who are coming in on Friday morning and we ran some errands. We also practiced eating off of a plate like a big girl. Lunch was fun but messy and she did much better at dinner! She's pretty much mastered the sippy cup even though she still wants her milk out of a bottle and she is really good at going down for naps and bed. She can crawl, cruise and stand on her own. She's taken quite a few steps but she's still a ways off from being able to walk. She loves yogurt melts, yogurt, raspberries and chicken. She's not a fan of green beans. Tonight she took her first bath in the big girl bath tub! She's been bathing in there for a while now, but this was the first time she went in without the infant tub. She loved being able to move around so much! She's amazing and I'm sad I'm going to start missing such huge parts of her days again! At least she'll be in good hands!

What do you mean I'm not supposed to play with my food?

Sweet Potato Art! This is fun!!!
Okay I'll eat it!
