Just Plain Cute

Here's another cute hand-me-down skirt from Reilly. Amanda doesn't pull herself to stand on too many things, but she can hang on for a long time if we help her up.
This is Amanda's very portable playpen. She can easily tip it over, but it works great to keep her contained while we play a board game or do an art project. We just wedge the basket between the table and chair legs. She's a good baby and plays happily and practices pulling herself to stand.
Here's something new that started over a month ago. As long as we've known Amanda she has cried for about an half hour every evening. All of a sudden, it stopped. This is why. She discovered her thumb and it comforts her. She also quit crying when she wakes up from her nap, so we have to be very diligent to watch the time and go check on her. We often find her quietly sucking her thumb and overjoyed to see us.

That is all so darling! I love Amanda's "hair-do" also. We can't wait to see Baby Amanda again...hopefully while she's still a baby!
