She now has two large teeth on top (I think one is coming in crooked) and two little ones on the bottom. And I just noticed today that she has another one coming through on top next to her big one, on the other side. I'll have to get pictures to post them. I hope the other side comes in quickly so she doesn't just have 3 teeth on top. :)
She crawled in the grass for the first time today. She's sat in the grass before, but never ventured out. I can't believe I haven't had her outside in the grass much since she's been crawling. It has been VERY rainy and soggy. Today was beautiful so I took her outside on a blanket. She sat there for a while and was having fun looking around and pulling out grass on the side of the blanket. Then I think she figured out she could get off of it. It was funny watching her figure that out. She was on the blanket on her knees and would put one hand out in the grass and pull it back, then try again. Finally she got it through the grass and onto the ground, then she was off! She crawled a few feet away, lifting her hands very high each time and then sat down and pulled out grass.
She LOVES dogs and animals! She's always looking for them if she hears them. She tries to talk to them. When she hears a dog outside, or a bird like today, she talks back with, "aaah, ah, ah!" yelled very loudly. She likes to do this with Rose, too. Funny, this is also how she sings.
We've got a great new CD - "Seed of Courage" from the Seeds Family Worship group of CD's. We also have "Seeds of Praise". Libby loves the songs and dances to them, sometimes clapping her hands, sometimes trying to sing along. It's great! The first song she sings will likely be a Bible verse (they are all Bible verses). She'll be memorizing Scripture as soon as she can talk! The CD's are great and I find myself singing along. I now have about 10 more Bible verses memorized. :) For those of you who know some of the songs, her favorite is the "Crushed" song based on Psalms 34:18 . Her favorite parts are the kids at the beginning yelling "crushed" and the "Ya ya" parts (she can sing that part. :)
Sorry for not having any pics to post today. I actually have a bunch more to post, but don't have time at the minute. I just thought I'd share some of Libby's current experiences. I hope to post more pics tomorrow.
Now off to the park to run and then to the grocery store.

Libby's first hoodie. Surprisingly, she left it alone for the most part.
And of course lots of honey crisps!

We had a "girls' day" with Sarah and Lucy and Holly and Hosanna. Here are some pics of the girls playing together. One of the only pics I got of all three of them together looking the same direction. It's hard to keep the interest of three curious, playful, growing girls! Libby and Lucy. Love their faces here! Lucy looks like she's singing a ballad. Hosanna was so photogenic! And I love all the red curls and bright blue eyes! She bumped her head so took a little snuggle break with Mama. So cute!
Hosanna playing. Libby was so funny that day. She doesn't particularly enjoy playing with her toys anymore... until someone else has them. She wanted whatever Lucy had. I guess it's a good time to start teaching her to share! She was also very physical, pushing and pulling the girls around. I don't know where she gets this from!
A few weeks ago I decided to try out some new tricks with my camera. I was working with depth of field and focusing on certain objects. I practiced with Libby's toys. I love my camera! Here's one of the practice shots.
I got some great practice shots, until Libby noticed her toys on the railing and decided it was time for her to end the photo shoot of her animals. :)
A beautiful fall day. Libby looking out the window and "barking" at the dogs across the street. She was so interested at finding the source of the noise and was immitating the little dog. :)
