It seems that Margaret has been teething since she was around 5 months old. Yesterday (Feb.17th) we finally had one of those little buggers break through!! We think the others won't be far behind (though...we also thought she was going to have a some teeth about 6 months ago?!?). I still haven't actually seen the tooth. Margaret is not a fan of anyone coming toward her gums!! I discovered the tooth when she bit down on my finger and I felt the edge of it. Aunt Janet wrestled her down and looked inside her mouth to see the tooth, but after that Margaret was on the defensive of anyone coming toward her mouth. Hopefully, we'll be able to snap a picture of the tooth in the near future.

Margaret + Chair = Standing up(with assistance)

This singing, blinking, colorful chair has been such a wonderful "toy" for Margaret! She loves to play with the little book that is attached to it, find the hidden snacks under the "pages", and to stand up from it(grabbing hold of something as she gets up). She will set down & stand up over and over again! I think she's building up those leg muscles and finding her footing...getting ready to run(I think she's going to skip walking!).
