Kira update

This week, Kira has been working really hard on vocalizing and grabbing things with two hands. Yes, this means the days of being able to eat at a restaurant peacefully without having to juggle an infant are OVER. When this week started, Kira was talking like an old modem (Gee...Ahh..chrshhhhh) and today she has started calling like a hoot owl (hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!). In These new babbles really throw mommy and daddy for a loop, since we don't know what these new sounds mean.

Her best friend continues to be the lights in our living room above the changing table. When I layed down next to her, I noticed that they do look a lot like a smiley face, so maybe that is what she is reacting to.

She is more cranky, more fussy, and more insistent every day. On the other hand, she is more interactive and socially excited every day, so I guess with the parent thing you must take the good with the bad.

In non-Kira news, it is summer in Alaska. When it is sunny, the light is just so incredible that it's very hard not to think this is the most beautiful place on earth. When it is cloudy, like today, the air feels really chilly and you start wishing for Hawaii. However, today we did get a good rain, and you should see the garden! It's going to be incredible this year. I'll try to get pictures one of these days :)
