Mocha has started letting her pet him a little. I have even witnessed him rubbing his face against her hand. Just once, but still! She mostly pets him correctly but will still pull a plug of hair out every now and then. He never responds though.
She is still pulling her hair behind her ear. Her hair looks like it’s going to be curly too as the ends are starting to turn up and the top waves over. Still a light brown color.
When asked, she looks up and points to a light or fan.
Spiffer has a book with an animal on each page and then a panel of buttons off to the side with each animal’s face on a button. This week, she’s been able to point to the matching animal button for almost every page. I had to see it with my own eyes to believe it!
HG drops whatever she’s doing each morning to go upstairs and wake up Cressey with me. When we walk in and she hears us, Cress starts shaking her arms and legs so much that the whole bed starts shaking. Once I start changing her diaper though, she’s out the door.
Just this weekend, she has started raising her little hands and arms up in a question or shrug when you ask her where something is. “Where’s Momo?”
She leans in to kiss HG (big, open mouthed ‘baby kiss’)…or maybe attempt a nibble? But no bites yet!
She has a little whisper voice that sounds like “ahschascha.”
She can be a little flirty with her eyes and puts head on her shoulder. Still will pretty much go to anyone and is very happy in general. Waves to everyone in a store.
When she’s really excited, she smiles really big, squints her eyes, and sticks her neck out.
Loves the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and is trying desperately to get her hands to make that spider!
We started Kindermusik this month. She loves all the kids and either just sits and stares at them or giggles loudly and wildly. The parachute terrified her- big time cry- but she loves the drums and shakers.
She wants to eat real food all the time. I’ve not found anything (other than prune/apple juice) that she won’t eat. With that has come some constipation issues, but we are working on that with digestive probiotics and Mirilax. She is finally starting to get the hang of a sippy cup (has realized she needs to turn it up), but it will just run all down the front of her. Still has to figure out the sip control part of it!
In the last week, maybe it’s teething or maybe her increased skills/brain development, but her naps have been awful. She cries when you put her down, fights getting in her sleep sack, hollers or rolls around for a long time, and sleeps for just an hour or so. She will still sleep through the night, but again, it’s hard to get her down.
Nicknames: Little Bit, Love Bug, Little One (although HG says that’s exclusively hers), Cressey Baby, Cress, Sissy, Itty Bitty Baby Girl (HG still claims Baby Girl)
