Bésame Mucho

My darling girl gives me kisses now when I ask for them. Also, she'll do it whether I ask in English, Spanish, or Czech! Her kisses are so sweet. She leans into me with an open mouth, trying to aim for my's too adorable for words. She makes my heart sing; I love her so much.

In other news, she babbles nearly constantly when she's awake and she is getting more and more mobil. She doesn't yet crawl on her hands and knees, but she is very good at dragging herself along the ground on her belly. Once she gets to where she was going, she huffs and puffs, grunts and groans, and pushes herself into a sitting position. She also is wonderful at keeping herself occupied with her toys. She enjoys putting things into and out of boxes...after she's tasted them of course.

I only wish that she were more into the solids. I think she may be over the really mushy solids - which sucks 'cause I have a freezer full of split peas, sweet potatoes, ground chicken, carrots, and squash. She does love bread though and fruits and yogurt and oatmeal. I think she'll now start eating infant potions of whatever we have for our own dinner. Of couse that means that I need to start preparing healthy, balanced meals for us!

Maybe you can start giving some of the frozen baby foods to Homer and Rose as popsicles? I bet they'd like the chicken and split peas. I'm sure Magda will be more than happe to share - as long as she gets to keep the pears and apples.

BTW, I think you now have to teach her to not turn away from me when I ask her for a kiss :-)

Stepan,it is prbably the facial hair that she is shying away from. As for me, I have now received numerous Magda kisses, and I could never have too many of them. Also, I was talking to the abuelito and he said he tried to get into the comment section unsuccessfully...he wanted to tell you, Jen, that now you know how we feel about the three of you, which mirrors my sentiments as well.
