So far this week Mary Ellen has:
*had her first tooth break through
*learned to sit up on her own
*cruised all the way around a coffee table
*correctly & deliberately used the word: "Bye-bye"
*started feeling like a big girl when I hold her (Kind of ... stiff. Do any of you mommies know what I'm talking about? Whenever I've held babies a few months older than her I've thought they feel stiffer than she feels. I think it's just that they're stronger and hold themselves up better. But she's feeling that way now.)
