Some of my favorite firsts don't have a space in the baby book for recording. They are things like "first kiss" (which I got a couple of weeks ago) or "first baby-talk conversation." One of the those sorts of firsts that I love, is first peek-a-boo. I don't mean the first time you ever play peek-a-boo, but the first time they participate. This week, while I was doing peek-a-boo, Adriana started pulling the blanket up over her face herself. Now this is a favorite activity of hers. She pulls the blanket over her head, and then grins ear-to-ear when she pulls it back down and you say "peek-a-boo!" Last diaper changing she grabbed the clean diaper and started pulling it over her face. It's just too cute!

So I decided to get a picture of it. I thought it was funny, though, that when I pulled out the camera, she suddenly had no interest in peek-a-boo and just laid there smiling for the camera. (After 7 months of pictures, she's trained!)

With some coaxing, I finally got a picture of her playing peek-a-boo:


  1. Adriana definitely got her looks from her mother. What a cutie!

  2. Would I be a bad FIL if I agreed with you here?

    She looks so much like her momma.

  3. Alyssa - I LOVE these pictures! They are just priceless in their cuteness! :) She is getting so big! And her hair is so long and pretty... She looks SO much like you when you were little in these! Is she crawling yet? Elaina started about two weeks ago ... now, I find myself saying "No, not for babies, just for mommas" all day long! :) Have a good weekend... -C
