My number 2

this isn't a post about my poop, don't worry. It's about Ivy.
thought i should do a post about her since i haven't in a while. plus, i just took some cute pictures of her being happy the other day so i figured i could put them on here. 

anyway, ivy's a super happy baby, most of the time. she has her moments, but so do all babies. as long as she's standing, though, she's guaranteed to be happy. man, she's obsessed. the other day she was SO excited to take a bath. I started the water, put her on the floor in her room and she crawled as fast as she could over to the bath tub, stood up and started jumping and squealing (the baby kind of jump, obviously). so i put her in the bath and she tried to stand up 2 minutes later. well, she's not allowed to do that, duh, so i tried to sit her down. she wanted none of that and grabbed at me to take her out. i'm just glad she can stand on her own now so i don't constantly have to be the one doing it for her. 
she sleeps well, eats well, plays well and she loves claire. but what younger sibling doesn't love their big sister/brother? she just started putting phones up to her ear and that's really cute. she doesn't actually crawl, per-say but she army crawls. and it's the funniest thing ever. claire never did that so we never experienced that before and i laugh every time. she looks paralyzed from the waist down. she'll eat anything. she claps, does "so big", waves and loves it when i play, 'i'm gonna get you'. she tries to crawl away as fast as she can squealing and then loves it when i get her and tickle her. 
she loves having an audience. one day i went to the mall and was holding her facing out, she just kept waving and smiling at everyone and doing "so big" for them. it was hilarious. gotta love her. she's such a great baby and makes us all very happy. i love wrestling and always try to do it with claire but she's not so much into it. i think ivy will be the one i can wrestle with, she likes to be thrown really high and all that stuff. i just have to say that having two girls is sooooo much fun. i'm hoping for another one. i'd be fine with that.
