Blowing kisses...

Lauren has learned how to blow kisses and she's stealing Grandma's heart in this little video clip...



Our Arizona Cardinals may not have won the big game, but we still had a very nice day. We started at my brother's place for some great food and to introduce Lauren to my sister-in-law's family. Lauren played shy most of the time because there were lots of new people there, but came out of her shell a little bit for Grandma when she blew those kisses. Next it was off to our friend Linda Marie's house for the rest of the game. It took Lauren a good hour and a half, but she finally warmed up to Linda and Christine and was soon running around playing and laughing.

Our baby is definitely very shy and it takes her quite a while to show her true personality...but when she does she is so much fun. We've only been home a little over a week and she's doing incredibly well. On the way home tonight she fell asleep in her car seat and we were able to get her straight into the crib for the night. Ahhh...this is the earliest so far.

Donna, You guys are doing extemely well for only being home a week or so! It will keep getting better! I think it took us around 3 weeks!

Just to let you know we were rooting for your Cardinal down in South Texas!It's apparent my husbands yelling at the T.V didn't do any good! Wishing you a great week!

So cute!! Grandma has waited so long for those kisses. So happy that Lauren is blessing her with them.

Adorable little snuggle bug you have there!

Too cute. And luckily she wasn't in Tucson watching the game via Comcast, as something happened to interrupt the game to show some porn! Put Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction to shame!

I'm a much bigger Steeler fan than Cardinal fan, but found myself rooting for the Cards anyway.

Lauren sounds like she is making a lot of progress and you haven't even been home that long. She is so cute in the video blowing kisses. Glad to hear that things are getting better.

Too cute on the kisses and good job Joe on the encouragement.

Nothing wrong at all with a cautious child these days - Tess is just the same way - takes a while to warm up to new people.
