Hanging out with Summer

I realized I haven't blogged in a while, so I decided to take a few pictures and videos while Summer and I were playing this morning.   Here are a few of the things Summer likes to do when we play together.

We've been trying to be intentional about Tummy Time so that she can exercise her neck muscles.  For her first 4 months, she would cry within 10 seconds of being put on her tummy, but now she is more ok with it :) and is getting stronger.

 Ever since she learned to roll over its hard to keep her on her tummy!  We play with lots of toys to keep her interested as long as possible, and then she rolls over!

We like to sing lots of songs.  Two of her favorites are "Little Red Wagon" and "Coo-coo clock".  It's hard to video and do the motions at the same time, so you'll have to imagine that when the coo-coo sounds, she gets "thrown" up in the air the same number of times as the clock "coo-coos".  These songs make her smile even when she is fussy!
She loves to stand and support her own weight.  It is hard to take pictures and support her, but here are a few cute snapshots.

 She loves to grab, hold and shake things, and put things in her mouth!
She likes to talk, blow bubbles,study her hands and feet, and kick her legs.  She loves to be in constant motion!
