So yesterday my boss told me to take off at noon so I decided to take Aleigha to the park and see how she liked it. I meet up with my parents when I got off to pick Aleigha up and we headed to the Duck Pond. She had such a good time. They have the baby swings there & she literally cried when I took her out so I put her back in. I think I pushed her in the swing for over 30 minutes. Then we went to feed the duck's. She thought that was hilarious. She dropped one of her animal cookies & the duck came right up by her foot to get it so everytime I would give her a cookie after that she would throw it to the ducks. After that we did a little shopping & she was getting a little cranky so we headed home. It was a good day. Now that I know how much she loves the park we will be taking her more often. I'll have to upload some pictures of Aleigha's fun day once the internet get hooked up tomorrow.
Last week wasn't so good with Aleigha...on last Saturday, Valentine's Day, she cute her top right tooth & 4 days later she cut her top left tooth so needless to say she was a little cranky last week. On Saturday we met up with my brother & his girlfriend and the kids at Mardi Gras. It was so much fun & Aleigha really enjoyed it. After about 45 minutes of floats coming by she was wore out & went sound asleep on my shoulder & slept through the rest of the parade. I told Henry we needed to make it a tradition to take Aleigha every year since my parents took us every year growing up. So we had a good weekend to start off an even better week. Aleigha has been standing on her own for a few weeks now & cruises furniture really good and also walks really well with her push toys but yesterday while I was on the phone with my mom Aleigha was walking back & forth between her and my dad. I was so excited & sad at the same time. After work my family all went down to the Boardwalk for the parade down there however I was anxious to get home to see Aleigha walk. I guess this is just a new beginning for us.
