Lena’s growing and changing so quickly I can hardly keep up with recording it on time, either here or to family or in my journal.  She’s already learning to sit up… perhaps there’ll be a blog post about that later today. Last night while I was helping my little baby learn to sit up I commented to Elliott that it makes me a little sad to see her doing it.  She’s growing up!  
But anyway, Lena’s not obsessed with sitting up.  Not yet.  Right now her obsession is her feet.  She can reach them.  And they taste good.  Mmmm…
I took this series of photos while we were hanging out on base recently. 
“Hey Lena, can you show us how you can grab your feet?  Happy baby pose?”

“Okay, if you’d like to see.  First I reeeeach…”

“… and then grab.  Let me get organized here… hmmm…”

“… and then I stretch out like this.  Hey, some cool kids are walking by, lemme just check them out for a sec…”

“Lena!  Earth to Lena!”

“Oh yeah, hi you!  I remember you!  You’re the one with the milk!”

“So yeah, my foot trick… aww, you know, you’re so great, I just love you.”

    Thank you for giving us these pictures when we can’t be close. We hug her (and all of you) across the miles.
