As Alyssa is getting so good at crawling and pulling herself up on things, she is fun to watch find new places in the house. This morning she was excited that she could look out the window. She sat there for more than 10 minutes just babbling away about the few inches of snow we got last night and she was very excited when she saw the garbage truck come by.

Our Happy/Smiling/Laughing Girl

For 2 days in a row, Alyssa has only taken one nap. The funny thing is that she still acts like she is ready for a nap, I put her in her crib, and for the next 2 hours she just plays. The great thing is she is happy when she is ready to get up.

This is her when I went to get her, happy and laughing. She just recently learned to pull her self up on things so I am not sure if that is what is keeping her from napping (maybe not though cause yesterday when I went in and peaked at her, she was laying on her back playing with her toes). She does think she is pretty big and has that look of accomplishment all the time now that she can crawl anywhere she wants, get from laying to sitting to laying all on her own, and pull her self up on things on her knees. I actually think it is more likely that she sleeps so much and so well at night so during the day doesn't need as much. Either way, as long as she is so happy, she can do what she wants. It is such a joy in my day to hear her happy sounds all the time.

While I am on the topic of happy, cute girls. Here is Kaitlyn on her new pony that the neighbors were getting rid of. She rides it all over, she gets quite the work out. She even packed her backpack and rode to North Carolina.
