Roller Coaster

I got this roller coaster toy, along with a bunch of baby clothes, from a donation shower (aka: baby stuff swap) that the UC Davis Pregnant Student Support Group held a few months ago.  I love free baby stuff, Renee doesn't care if it's used, and we don't have to spend money on something she's only going to use for a few months.

She really likes this toy too.  She can't move the blocks around yet, but if she holds on just right it helps her balance so she can sit up, which she loves to do :D  She topples right over as soon as she lets go though!

She's getting better about doing "Tummy Time" these days also.  I can even make her laugh when she's on her tummy sometimes.  

But, it usually doesn't last long, and she starts to get upset.

Luckily that one is a quick fix, just turn her over, make a goofy face and VoilĂ !!, a happy baby again :D

Goofy Girl!!!

On another Renee note, she had her first real cold this week.  It started last Saturday with a runny nose and a fever, and it pretty much lasted all week long.  It was a good one too, complete with a trip to the doctor, two trips to the pharmacy, greenish snot, lots of coughing and, by far the most fun, throwing up... on me... several times.  At least she's not eating solid foods yet :D

Party Girl

On Friday Jeff, Renee and I went to a party in San Francisco.  Jeff's description of the party before we went was that it was hosted by one of his co-workers, the majority of the people there were going to be fellow emplyees, spouses were invited and that there would be a hired bartender.  So, I'm thinking work party, low key, boring. 

Well, it was more than a boring work party, let me tell you!!!  They were taking shots, playing pool, blasting music, dancing, and having a great time.  And Renee had a blast :D  She was very interested in watching what everyone was doing and even let total strangers pick her up and walk around the room with her.  We only stayed a few hours, since it's never fun for a sober person (namely me) to be around ever increasingly drunk people for very long :D  Plus, I was worried about the noise level and Renee's sensitive infant ears.

On our way home we stopped at a CPK in Emeryville for dinner and Renee was so tired from partying that she fell completely asleep while nursing and didn't even notice when I put her down on the booth seat next to me while Jeff and I finished our pizza.  She got lots of curious looks, and tons of awwws from surrounding diners! 

Here she is sound asleep on the booth at CPK.

Then yesterday, we had some great friends from San Mateo over.  And again Renee was very social.  I think everyone took a turn holding her and she didn't mind one bit, smiling and cooing while we chatted.  It looks like our fussy little baby has finally grown into the social butterfly we've always wanted her to be, or at least she's well on her way!

Renee Rolled Over!!!

It was not at all graceful, but she did it!!!  And she was really mad about not being able to get back over - she doesn't like being on her stomach :D

Here she is right after she rolled onto her stomach for the very first time!!!

Oh, and I finally put up the June pictures on her Gallery Page, go check it out if you want to see more of her cuteness!
