We’re still cruising around here. Baby girl is just starting to venture into standing on her own. Sometimes she forgets she can’t walk, and she’ll go into a downward dog yoga position, try to stand and remember again that she hasn’t mastered that yet.
We’ve added a new word to our vocabulary – “this!” She will point at things, or hand an object to you and say, “this! this!” She is most effective at dinnertime if someone has different food from her.
She LOVES tomatoes. Loves them. Eats them out of my hand or out of a basket at my mom’s house. The problem is they do cause some issues since they are so acidic. But occasionally I’ll give her sunburst tomatoes and hope for the best.
Sesame Street is her jam. She has watched clips of Sesame Street, and has mainly seen books and knows who Elmo is. We’ve since found her brother’s Sesame Street plush animals and she’s all over them. (In fact, during our New York trip, we kept those on hand for entertainment.)
She loves water and we’ve been swimming several times this summer. I think she’d try to swim on her own, if I would just let go of her. (Though seeing how my son is terrified of swimming, I should just see if she could grasp the concept earlier rather than later.)
Sometimes she acts as if she’s getting more teeth, but she’s got so many! We’re waiting for the eye teeth to come in – and those dreaded two-year molars. There have been a few bad nights of no-sleep lately, but this weekend we all slept. Oh and naptimes. She still takes two naps a day, but the past week has been tough and she hasn’t slept in the afternoon. I know she’ll be dropping a nap soon, but I’m not ready.
She’s still in a size 3 diaper, 18-months clothing and about a size 3 shoe. Depends on who makes the shoe. She can tell you where her nose is, and where her hair is. She kind of sings along to the “ABCs” song and loves stories and songs.
She absolutely LOVES her brother and will give him hugs at any moment. (He just eats up the attention.) I hope they have this loving relationship for many years to come.
