Baby Girl... Somehow the months keep passing on by and you keep getting bigger and bigger despite my best attempts at keeping you my tiny, tiny baby. Sigh..
You are SUCH a fun little girl though. You laugh so much of the day and I love it. That's not to say that there are not tantrums, because oh there are, but in between those you are such a joy that you kind of make up for those.
What have you been up to this past month Baby Girl?
You're currently on a Daddy kick. I can't get you to eat nine times out of ten, but if Daddy tries, you'll clean your plate. You wake up asking for "Dada" and won't happily go to bed without telling him "nigh nigh". You still only want Mama when you're upset though. :)
You can follow so many commands. You pick out books when we tell you to, pick out clothes, get your shoes, go to the front door when we say "let's go", throw away something if we ask you to "put it in the trash", and "come here".
You have become such a little girl! You love carrying around bags, wearing necklaces, putting on your shoes, and bows and hats. I love it!
You are running flat out everywhere. You're quick, fast, and in a hurry.
You are quickly figuring out how to use a spoon and fork. You're actually really good with the fork.
You also like to find stuff to carry around with you. The heavier the better. Last night you tried to carry around a bag of dog food. It didn't work.
You've started "helping" a bit with chores. You know where the Tupperware drawer is and you take the Tupperware from us when we unload the dishwasher and put it away. You can also put up your shoes and clean up your books. You are also still on your "cleaning" kick and will wipe things down or attempt to sweep with the broom.
When I say "let's go get dressed", you run to your room and grab the doorknob on your closet and start saying "dress, dress!". So funny.
You have a Melissa and Doug shapes puzzle that you are getting really good at. You can get about half of them in the right places most of the time.
You still don't have a lot of patience with small tasks. You lose interest in blocks and such very easily and move on to something else.
You laugh so much and so hard all day. You still do your little fake laugh. You've also started putting your hand over your mouth to laugh. You love to make us laugh. The more we laugh at you, the more it encourages you.
You are still obsessed with the dogs. The minute we get out of the car, you run to the back gate to check on them. The bigger you get, the more okay with you they get and you guys are forming quite the little friendship. So fun to see.
You "talk" all day. Our house is filled with the sounds of your talking and laughing. Music to my ears.
You love the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" song and are getting better and better with the hand motions. You also like the "Happy and You Know It" song (is that even the title?) and are getting better with the motions. So far you only have clapping down.
You've started stomping your feet to dance. You bounce around and stomp really quickly and then just laugh.
You can point out eyes, nose, mouth, and ears now in addition to your hands, feet, and belly button that you've been doing for a while.
You can get your self dressed with a little help from us and are currently trying to figure out how to get yourself undressed. That should be fun.
