We put our gate up on the stairs. Ally has started trying to crawl. She does pretty good, except that almost all of her progress is backwards. I wondered if she'd have any trouble getting that huge belly of hers off the ground, but she manages. She even scoots her legs forward, but hasn't managed to figure out how to move her arms. I hope it takes a while. While she's stationary, she's a lot easier to watch.
We made our first trip to the ER this weekend. Not really an emergency situation, but since Rob's got friends there. We had her checked out and got advice on how to medicate her. She's got a pretty bad upper respiratory cold, which morphed into her first ear infection. She's feeling a lot better now, except for when we make her take her antibiotics. She's not real thrilled with them.
Last Tueesday was her first experience with a babysitter. Rob and I went out for dinner for our aniversary (thanks for the card Harriett). We left her with a nurse that Rob works with who's been asking to babysit since Ally was born. I'm proud to say that I didn't call home to check on her once! I'm not so proud that the first drink I had made me dizzy. It's been a long time! We couldn't think of anything more exciting to do than have dinner. We lead very boring lives. Well, that's about it for now. Love you all
