On Tuesday this week (2/3/09) I had Caitlyn's first parent teacher conference. Jared and I were both pretty sceptical, but it turned out to be very informative! We mainly just talked about the milestones that she's met and the ones that she should be meeting soon. So far she's found her feet, she's talking up a storm, she grabs for toys and puts knows to bring them to her mouth! She's not a real cuddly baby right now so book time doesn't usually last long. I hope this changes! Next she'll be sitting up on her own. Yesterday she was actually able to sit for a few seconds all by herself - so it won't be long! She'll also be learning cause and effect. Like toys that play music or light up - she'll learn that if she pushes a button something will happen. You can already see the wheels turning in her brain when you show her things. She just hasn't figured out how to make it work.
Yesterday we had a busy day. We went to lunch with my dad's side of the family at Millard Roadhouse. Faith had a blast playing with and holding Caitlyn! Then we went shopping with Theresa, Eddie and Faith. We got home and we had sweet potatoes for the first time. While she was laying down she had spit up and it got in her hair...so we also had to have a bath. I got a new bath seat where she can sit up. She wasn't sure what to think about that. I think it will be much more fun when she figures out how to splash! Grandma & Grandpa Darling came over to play cards. Caitlyn was so tuckered out she fell asleep in her highchair waiting for mommy to finish playing!
