-She can feed herself pretty well with a spoon now! She almost refuses to let us feed her anything, she thinks she's big stuff. It's a helluva lot messier letting her go at it alone but it's the only way she'll eat and it's also really cute seeing her be so independent.
-She hates sitting in her highchair so yesterday I upgraded her into a little booster seat (it has a security belt and straps onto the the chair) so she can sit at the table and eat. Again, she looks so cute sitting like a big girl at the table so independently.
-The cutest thing she does is give kisses and makes a "mmm-mwah" noise.
-She isn't much of a talker (probably because she just points at something and squeaks and we jump up and get it for her) but she does communicate very well. She seems to really understand what we say and will nod yes and no to things. Anytime she wants something, anything, she will sign "more" for it. I.E. if she wants to go upstairs, she'll point up the stairs and ask for more. One day she found a picture of Matt and starting crying, pointed at him and asked for more. It was so sweet and funny.
-She does try to say a few words, including but not limited to: owl, star, heart, apple (she says that one pretty clear), and Da-da.
-She makes up little games, like taking an object, putting it behind her back and then shrugging and looking at us like, "Where did it go?" then she'll pull it out and giggle and do it all again.
That's pretty much all I can think of. (I know you were just dying to read more about the little things someone else's baby does.)
I always thought I would be sad as she got older and older, but it just keeps getting better and more fun everyday!
|I slicked her hair back after a bath. She doesn't even look like the same baby!|
|She always hesitates to do it but she really loves going down this slide at the park.|
