Reaching New Heights

M – One nice thing about Mango being 6+ months old is that she is able to entertain herself for short periods of time. The bad part is what she finds to entertain herself with. While she doesn’t crawl per say, she rolls and kicks enough to get her where she wants to go – like off the blanket and onto the floor. She grabs for everything. It is safe to say that both of us (parents) have lost some hair due to her reach being longer than expected, her surprisingly strong grip, and general reluctance in letting things go.

We went for gelati (it’s like ice cream) for the first time today since before she was born. As it was only a block or two away from the car, it was decided that it would be easier to just carry her. I still laugh as I picture her staring at our every movement (especially as the gelati went from cone to mouth) and how she kept reaching for our cones. As seen in the picture, she was a very focused young lady. Although we had to rush our dessert, it was still a nice little outing.

Ooooh...what does it taste like??
