Father's Day Weekend

We did a lot on Mr. Mustard's very first Father's Day weekend. On Saturday, we went out to lunch at The Yard House and then went to the Pasadena Chalk Festival. Sunday we shopped for televisions (didn't buy one), had lunch at Chipotle, and took Paprika to the park to play on the swings and the slide. Mr. Mustard got cards from me, Paprika, Hauser, and Meg, as well as gifts from Paprika and me.

We noticed on Sunday that Paprika has new teeth poking through. She already has two on the bottom, and now she is getting a third one down there. It's already come through the gums and is now about halfway to its full size. She also has two teeth on top that are poking through- we can see the little white dots telling us that they are almost ready to pop out.

Paprika learned how to clap last week. Now whenever we say "Yea!" she claps and claps! She gets very excited by it. She also knows how to wave bye-bye. She's been doing this for awhile- probably a month already, but now she does it very consistently. Usually when she waves bye-bye, she waves towards herself (as if to mirror the person waving to her). It's very very cute!

She continues to increase in mobility every day. She loves climbing and kneeling is now her favorite position. She can stand holding onto the crib railing, but only when the railing is lowered. When it's at its full height, she kneels and holds onto the bars.

On Saturday, Paprika turned 10 months old! I can't believe she'll be a year old in only two more months. Time is really flying. She continues to be sweet, adorable, and a true light in our lives!
