Dave. Valerie. Sylvia. Veda. Guinevere. And the animals.

Before she's even very stable sitting on her own, she has managed to figure out how to pull herself into a sitting position from lying down! We have found her sitting in her crib a couple of times and thought it odd, but perhaps with the bars she had enough "assistance" to be able to manage it. This afternoon, however, I saw her maneuver her frame into a sitting upright position all by herself. Hard for me to explain how she does this but she starts with her butt in the air, and her legs underneath her and then begins a rocking motion to throw herself backward. The unfortunate aspect of doing it this way is that she often throws herself back too far and lands on her backside!
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
