baby bootcamp

I had a fantastic time with the cutest little girl ever this weekend.  She was SO CLOSE to walking on her own but it wasn’t until I landed back in Denver that my sister said that she had taken three steps.Keira Baptism091110-031
My sister called the weekend “baby bootcamp” (no, I am not pregnant, I just wanted some quality time!) and I definitely learned so much, like some babies can be held into a highchair by the tray alone, while others need a harness.  Keira is such an active baby that she doesn't want to sit still too long!

A love of reading can start really early.  And, some babies like to read upside down.

The urge to shop starts early.

Toys without an on/off switch are very dangerous, but will invariably be a baby favorite.

and no matter how much a kid likes peaches and other sweet things…she might not like cake.

This dislike of cake better turn around or else I’m going to question if we are related.(Melissa, I’m just kidding!)
