Daddy's Girl

Jillian sure is a Daddy's girl. We enjoyed having him home last week for the holidays, but now it is back to those 10 hour days six days a week. Jillian has enjoyed jamming out with him to Guitar Hero, and she got her first fishing pole for Christmas.


Maybe it is my inexperience with babies talking, but Jillian has really strong legs. She's been working on standing since birth, and she can stand for quite a while with support from just one hand now. This just seems crazy to me for a baby that isn't even 3 months old. The doctor commented on it at her appointment earlier this month, and he put odds on her walking early. Oh dear.

I was walking by the time I was 9.5 monhs old. Mom made sure that I had a shelf with my toys so I couldn't get her knick-knacks.

She is getting so big, Jen. Oh my.

Oh dear is right. She is growing so big. Hold on to these little baby moments as close as you can. Because even though you didn't always adore babies, you will miss this time.

OH MY GOODNESS...she's standing with one hand support...that's crazy!!! She may be walking before she's crawling!

She seems like such a happy baby all the time...Julian is so serious in contrast. She seems so sweet!

wow! standing up already, that is awesome! it does sound like she's going to be walking early :)

The Guitar Hero picture is hilarious!

Wow, sounds like she's already an overachiever with those milestones. My brother crawled at 4 months and walked at 9 months. Scary!

Love the guitar hero picture! And she seems quite happy about that fishing pole! I'd say standing at 3 mos is pretty darn awesome.

I think she may bypass crawling altogether! She is getting so big so quick! Where did it go?!

Holy Cow! LL is a few weeks older, and definitely isn't standing like that. Very cool! (Our little guy seems to be focusing all his energy on verbal skills, and none at all on physical prowess.)

Here comes trouble!! Wow - next she'll be driving.

Katherine was born in October too and she can stand briefly (when she is pissed) but she has to be mostly supported - no where near where Jillian is! Holy Cow!!
