New Blog

Since I'm so great at keeping this blog up to date, I decided to make a separate one for my sewing gig, Crafty Mama Creations.

Crap, another biter!

Yep, it's looking like this is the sweet face of a biter. Bella went through a major biting phase from about 15 months to just over 2 years. It was so bad, we pretty much had to abandon playdates because she couldn't keep her chompers to herself. The first time it happened with Matea, I thought it was a fluke. I caught her happily sucking the juice out of a wipe and took it from her. She grabbed my forearm and bit down. Since then, she's bitten me twice and I saw her bite
Bella this morning. It's definitely intentional and out of frustration and anger. I really hope she grows out of it otherwise I see some tough times ahead between the sisters. Ah well, I guess Bella may learn that karma's a bitch.

Dancin' Tator Tot

Matea hears the slightest sound of a beat and immediately starts dancing. Here she is shakin' it to the John Deere Gator song on her tractor.

Eggs, eggs, eggs!

This was our first year dying eggs with Bella. We've always been out of town for the holiday in the past and Bella was still too young to participate so we had skipped this tradition until now. She had a lot of fun decorating the eggs and was even willing to taste one after she hunted them on Sunday morning.

Kite Flying

Grandpa and Grandma Cindy and her parents came for a visit last weekend. This was the first time Cindy's parents had seen Bella since she was about 6 months old and their first time meeting Matea. Matea took a while to warm up to everyone but Bella immediately started workin the crowd. Grandpa brought his kites and we all went out to the beach on Sunday. Bella was really excited but I'm not sure that kite flying was what she pictured and I don't know if she really put together that the kite was attached to the strings she was holding with Grandpa. She had a great time and told me that night that she was going to dream about flying the baby kite all by herself while Grandpa watched.

Standing Up

It seems like everyday Steve and I mention how we can't believe how quickly Matea is growing up. She learns something new and then masters it within a few days. She working on learning to pull herself up to standing and loves to hold on to the couch or a little chair.
