What a fun and precious little girl we have! I know I have said this before, but I love seeing her personality emerge more and more each month! She is just silly, easy going, and cannot get enough of exploring her world!
This month she learned to:
Dance to music
Raise her hands in the air
Pull herself up from sitting while holding someone’s hands
Walk with assistance
Drink water from a sippy cup
Turn around on her hiney
Scoot on her hiney (she has no interest in crawling)
Things she says:
Dadadadada (Dad – this one seems to come and go!)
Lots and lots of motor/buzzing sounds…constantly!
Her favorite things this month:
Walking with help
Singing during diaper changes, especially “Open Them, Shut Them”
Looking at herself and others in the mirror
Grabbing/Holding (and pulling) hair
Talking and being talked to
Playing with shoes – Noah’s velcro ones are a favorite
Picking up the tiniest things she sees
Tearing kleenex and napkins
Her baby doll
Looking at and touching different textures and patterns, especially quilts from Gigi
Singing! She starts to sing as soon as she hears music of any kind
Playing the piano
Grandparents and great-grandparents
Watching Noah show off – she just adores her big brother!
Meeting new people
Sitting in her little car or in her brother’s car
Pulling her socks off
Things she hates this month:
Teething (she has 4 teeth and some on the way)
Being put in her highchair and made to wait on food
Sitting for too long when she wants to stand
Her 3rd nap
Not much else…she’s pretty easy and happy most of the time!
