When the play date was over Hannah gave Natalie a hug to say goodbye. They really played well together and it was fun seeing them together.

Natalie was on the receiving end of Hannah's new habit. Hannah has been throwing herself on her back and rolling around. Natalie did a good job making sure Hannah did not bonk her head on the wood floor.

There were lots of activities during the play date, one of which was an illegal baby race. During the weigh in it was obvious Natalie had the advantage, but Hannah put up a good fight.

In this picture you can tell they really enjoyed playing together, unlike the last one. You can also see how much taller Natalie is.

Hannah's friend Natalie came over for a "play date" this morning. Natalie is 5 weeks older than Hannah, and much taller (as you will see in future posts). They had a really good time together this morning. Even though Hannah is ramming her walker into Natalie in this picture, they really like eachother.

Hannah will soon be entering a photo contest looking for a cover baby for "BabyTalk" magazine. The winner, Hannah, will be flown to New York City for a "professional" photo-shoot. That is old hat for her already, but we will go through the motions for those New York bigwigs. Also the winner will be on the cover of the magazine and on Good Morning America. After her appearance on TV she will be signing autographs and accepting donations for college, Auburn that is.

This action shot clearly shows Hannah has learned how to fall, but not how to use the walker for walking.

Stephanie thought this walker she got Hannah was going to get her walking all around the house, but as it turns out it is really just a step stool to get on the couch (although she is not quite tall enough to get there). You can tell in this picture she knows she is not supposed to be climbing on the walker.

Hannah is really getting around the house. I have found that if I do not hear her or I loose track of her for a minute, she is likely into something she is not supposed to be touching. -Andrew

Hannah enjoyed her piano lessons, but the big news is Hannah stood up by her self for the first time this week. She was sitting in the middle of the room and the next thing you know she is standing by herself with nothing to hold on to. She was about to take her first step forward when the excitement in the room scared her and she plopped back down on her backside.

And you thought I was exaggerating about her whole hand spanning two keys.

I hope Hannah is this enthusiastic about playing the piano when her parents are making her go to lessons. -Andrew

Mommy thought Hannah was done her lesson for the night, but Hannah had other ideas.

It only took Hannah about 5 minutes to learn how to play with both hands.

Hannah got her first piano lesson last night. You would not believe how good she is playing the piano, at least for someone who's entire hand spans 2 keys.

In case you could not tell in any of the other pictures, Hannah is still quite bald.

Mommy gave the fake apple to Hannah, and then looked shocked when she tried to eat it. Go figure.

Hannah got to play at the dinner table tonight. She got into the fake apples tonight.
