a few questions...

Why does my daughter like to play with everything BUT her toys?! I swear, this girl will play with anything, except her own toys. She likes to play with paper bags, her swim diapers (clean ones lol), my flip flops, her clothing, Jeff's keys, a hanger...a freakin' hanger! Yesterday, I watched her crawl over to her hamper, try to pull up on it, only to have a few hangers fall out of it...which she immediately went for and tried to stuff a small pink hanger into her mouth. Yeah.

So do I correct strangers when they tell me how cute my little boy is? This drives me nuts, especially when I clearly dress her in pink from head to toe or put her in a girly dress. The only time this doesn't happen is when I put a bow in her hair. Whatever. I'm just tired of being like, actually she's a girl.

Lastly....my hair is out of control. It needs some serious help. My roots are like an inch and a half and I'm seriously considering just shaving it all off. Just kidding...but sometimes I feel that way. I do kind of want to go a little darker...maybe a light brown instead of my beachy blonde look...which right now its not so beachy :( Should I bite the bullet and go brown? I'm scared Kammy won't recognize me!!

So, we have officially moved out of crazy northern Virginia! We said goodbye to our little apartment and moved all of our stuff down to Jeff's mom's in Norfolk. I was definitely ready to say goodbye to the horrible traffic up there, that's for sure.

Kammy has just been such a delight. We are so lucky to have such an adaptable, easy-going, loving little baby. Moving is hard and it sucks even when you don't have a baby, but she just handled the move with ease :) She is crawling now which means she is getting into everything. Its hard because I don't want to be the mom who hovers over her so she can't explore and learn but at the same time I don't want to just let her roam around and get into stuff she shouldn't. Gotta find a balance.

Nothing else really to report, just settling in down here. Oh! Kammy and I joined a mom and baby group here in Norfolk and it is awesome!! Its really great because its all first time moms and the babies are around Kammy's age. Plus, the group does a lot of fun activities and get-togethers which will hopefully socialize both me and Kamryn. We went to a Naval Museum the other day and it was great...Kammy was so happy to see other babies and I met some really sweet women. I def. recommend joining a mom/baby group and am pretty psyched to have joined one myself!
