Natalie is a really good baby and has been less of a picky eater recently, plus she's the "birthday" girl so I let her have a cupcake too.
I decorated the cupcakes with toppers shaped like cupcakes (seems a little redundant, doesn't it?) and she used it as a spoon to scoop up frosting. It made her so happy. She was smiling and kept looking at me like, "Is this really okay, Mom?"
Here are some little things she's been doing lately:
-She stopped saying "Da-da" and now just says "Dad," but it comes out sounding more like "Dat".
-She covers her eyes with her palms facing outward and then peeks out and yells "map!" I don't know what "map" means but I think it's her way of saying "boo".
-She asks me to dance when I have on music. She'll point to the T.V. (when I have it on the music channels that play music 24/7) and she'll asked for "more". When I ask her if she wants to dance she nods her head "yes" very enthusiastically.
-She's been doing this for about a month, but she loves spinning herself around in circles until she almost falls down.
-I'm totally jinxing this by saying it, but bedtime has gotten so much easier and less stressful. For the past three or so weeks she's been going to sleep pretty easily and at a reasonable hour. She's taking a really long nap right now though, so I already know tonight is going to be a bit of a struggle.
-She will always hug you if you're laying down. It's so sweet and she can be so affectionate.
-She walks/limps on her tipy toes from time to time.
-If you ask her what a cow says she goes, "mooo!" For a frog she sticks her tongue in and out of her mouth (like she's catching flies) and for monkey she'll say, "ahhh!"
