Getting her Vitamin C

I'll have to admit - limes aren't the most liked fruit. I'm not sure I even tasted a lime until I served my mission among the Hispanic people in Miami. There, I had a lot of dishes made with lime or even cooked in lime juice. Needless to say, I grew to love them, and I can now be seen sucking on a wedge. So perhaps, in some way, Alena acquired this liking from me. We went to a restaurant the other day and decided that we'd give her a lime wedge just for kicks. We figured she'd make some sort of cute face, and we were right:

But surprisingly, she went back for more. And more. Pretty soon, she had sucked out most of the juice.

So add limes to the long list of foods that Alena will eat. We have yet to find something she'll refuse more than 3 times. (that was the potato)

A Prodigy?

I think we have a prodigy on our hands. The trick? Start them early. (& get one of these pianos)

Moving Around

It used to be that we could put her in the middle of the floor and she'd just sit there. She'd play with her pacifier, examine the grout or the tiles, or talk to her stuffed animals.

Now, Alena finds that there is more to the world than grout, so she is scooting her way around to find it. She can traverse across an entire room within minutes, and if there's anything on the ground, it will somehow find itself into her mouth. Sometimes, she does an army crawl, but she's started to do a "normal" crawl on carpet. Soon, she'll be into everything...
