23 Weeks

HG is giggling and talking lots right now.  She is all smiles when we dance, sing, or just say her name.  HG has discovered her bottom lip and enjoys sucking on it.  She has started saying the "m" sound all the time to "talk" to us, along with just babbling and cooing.  Everything is in her mouth, especially her hands. 
 HG is settling into a 3 1/2-4 hour routine pretty well now in the morning, and afternoon is still a mystery.  We have been at home without visitors this week and she is a napping queen.  Two long naps (about 2 hours each on a good day), and if its a good day, one short one in the late afternoon.
 I got this jumperoo off of Craigslist on Monday.  On Tuesday morning she played with it for the first time.  Her feet barely touch the ground, and she does quiet understand "jumping", but I can tell this is going to be a favorite pretty soon.  It is really nice to have while I'm cooking breakfast in the morning for some morning exercise for HG.
We had a cold day last week (highs in the low 70s), and here is HG in her "winter" clothes.  We had lots of snuggle time and good long naps since the sun wasn't shining too brightly into her room.  Have no fear, we are back in the 80s tomorrow, but it was fun to enjoy some slow cooker chili last week :)

I subbed for the first time this week, and Marty stayed home with HG.  It was only a 1/2 day position, so just 4 hours of separation, but it was fun for me to get back in the classroom with some preschoolers.  HG did fine with Daddy, yet did not take a bottle for him.  I guess I will only be subbing 1/2 days for a while.

She's getting cuter and cuter all the time! Can't wait to meet her someday.
