We are actually getting 2 teeth, not just one. I still haven't been able to get a great picture, so this one will have to do. You can kinda see a fuzzy white spot on the gums.

This is the look she gave me before I got the tooth picture. "Mommy, what are you trying to do to me?"

Sofia is mastering the sippy cup

We are almost crawling too. She can get up in a push-up position and she can get up on her hands and knees, but doesn't stay in either too long. And she ends up pushing herself backwards instead of forwards, and it frustrates the hell out of her. What was almost in her grasp is now even farther away.

We joined a new gym this week and Sofia went to the gym daycare for the first time yesterday. (First time anyone other than family has watched her.) She did great and had all the ladies wrapped around her finger! One girl practically jumped over the front desk when we were on our way out just to say good-bye to Sofia. She also starts "real" daycare on Monday. She'll be going 3 days a week. It'll give me time to work a solid block of time or be available to visit clients and it'll give Sofia a chance to socialize and learn to share. I'm sure it will be harder on me than her, but I'm ready. She'll be 7 months old next week and I think this is a perfect time to start (she still doesn't mind strangers). If I had had to do this 3 or 4 months ago, I don't know how I would have reacted. We also go to the doc next week for her 6 month check up. I'll be sure to keep everyone posted on how daycare and the doctor goes.

Speaking of new gym, I've been to the gym 3 times in the past 5 days and the food thing is so much easier these days. Yesterday, I ran for 8 minutes straight! I have registered for the Army 10 Miler in September and....I'm going to register for the Marine Corps Marathon in October! If that doesn't get my butt in gear, I don't know what will. I'm just hoping to finish, obviously, and I'd like to get my time closer to the 5 hour mark. My previous marathon was 5:48:00. We are going to get a jogging stroller this weekend.
ETA - I finally broke out the good camera to get a tooth picture.

Thomas has been getting teeth two-at-a-time too. He got his first 2 around 6.5 months, the second two around 7 months and the third set around 7.5 months. We've been in a holding pattern since. We'll see when 7 & 8 pop up!!! It looks like she's doing well with the cup too! Thomas...not so much - he thinks it's a chew toy!!!!

Whoo-hoo! Teeth, crawling and daycare. Busy busy up in your household.

You go, you runner, you! I'm going to get to a marathon one of these days, too. Way to go on 8 minutes, that's definitely a great start!

Don't let her grow up to fast! When are you coming back down?
