chloe: the bigness of big


:a week of firsts:

when our child was born, we'd sit there and marvel at how she'd ever crawl or walk or talk. she seems so fragile and helpless. and then she starts to do small things, and we begin to get anxious about when those things will begin. and then, all of a sudden, they happen.

this week, while jared's family was in town, she charged forth with her whole bag of tricks. on wednesday, she started crawling, and never turned back. about the same time, she began her new hand gesture, pictured below. we like to call it the, "what, me?"

this gesture is basically used around the clock, but almost always at the appropriate times. if someone asks a question, she puts her hand up. if someone walks in the room, she puts her hand up. it's very cute, and smart i might add.

she also is cutting a tooth. you can barely feel the top of it, but it's there. thankfully for us, and our neighbors, she doesn't seem to be horribly bothered yet. she's sleeping through the night fairly well and seems very happy.

she also took her first dip in a swimming pool. pretty cute stuff. unfortunately, the water was a bit cool and her time in the pool was quite short, but man is she cute.

and, to top off her week of firsts, she went to her first baseball game, appropriately played between the mariners (jared's team) and the padres. but not only was it a game, it was a game viewed from the posh suite that tio ryan so generously shared with us. he was able to secure seats there through his company. it was the best way to take a baby to the game...couches, soft chairs, food, private bathroom, blankets, prime view of the field and without all the fuss of trying to keep a kid seated for 3 hours straight! she was great, and everyone loved her. she cheered with everyone, took a walk with grandma around the park and saw her mariner's to a 6-5 victory. good times
