A breakthrough

Melayna, who is now six months old, has decided to do things just like her brother. Just a couple of days after turning six months her first tooth made its appearance. Melayna hasn't been really showing any signs of teething besides massive amounts of drooling, enough to rival Niagara Falls, and the automatic impulse to stick everything and anything in the mouth.

So, I wanted to capture the moment even though you really can't see the tooth yet (it just cut through the surface). I get the camera out. Sit right in front of a open window and attempt to take pictures with one hand while pulling her lip out of the way with the other.

But there was a problem...My daughter has a weird thing with blowing raspberries and sticking her tongue out. She loves it. If there is something near her mouth, she wants to stick her tongue out and try to lick it. What a goober!

But persistance pays off and she soon realizes that mommy's fingers are no fun to lick. Hello gums.Hello again. (See the teeth just below the surface?)

By the way, did you notice her eyes? Definitely takes after her daddy. Tristan's eyes were dark pools of brown by this age. Here's a picture of him just a week or so short of six months.

I DID notice how beautiful her eyes were!! And BIG! What a sweetie! So, is she cranky enough for you with the toother coming in??

About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
