Lena Beana is 7 months old. She is growing up too fast!
She likes to put her toes in her mouth. In fact, she likes to put everything in her mouth... cords, toys, kitchen utensils, sticks, anything she can get her hands on.
She often has this very serious look on her face- with her eyebrows raised slightly. It's like she is looking into people's souls, and is trying to figure them out. She is very intuitive, and aware of other's feelings too. We can't wait to see what wonderful things she will be and do in her life.
She got her first two teeth this month. The bottom two. They're hard to see, so she still has that big gummy grin. So cute.

The crowd would cheer as each balloon would skim the water, and sometimes dunk the basket into the water!

And the adventure continues...
