A Week of Firsts

It's been a banner week for sweet little Abigail. She saw her first fireworks on Saturday and seemed to enjoy them (at least for the first few minutes). She also got lots of ice cream and popcorn that day, so it may have been the snacks talking.

My sweetie also started using a spoon on her own for the first time on Monday. She loves her "Nee-nee" and gets excited to use it. We decided to use applesauce as our teaching tool, and so far it's working great. Abigail definitely gets a lot on herself and her placemat, but I'm thinking a fair amount is also making it to her mouth. I WILL say that that little cutie is pretty smart, too, because when she's finished with the lesson for the day, she hands me the spoon and waits for me to feed her the remainder. Clever little, Queenie!!

In other news, I'm trying to improve my skills as a photographer. I took the class Matt gifted me for Mother's Day and have also had my first tutorial with a talented friend here in town. I'm determined to get better and not always use the basic mode on my camera. So, keep watching!! You just might see some improving photography on this blog!

I let Siti feed my girls whatever they want. I know I could intervene, but I feel I'd be ruining a sweet grandparent thing.

Oh yeah...she also had apple juice and was VERY sad when it was gone.

These pics are great! You really are getting good with the camera. I'm proud of Abigail for learning to use her spoon. What a smartie! It was fun to see the pictures of July 4th. Thanks for letting Siti spoil the girls!
