are working on your top two teeth, and it has been really rough. For
the past couple of weeks, you have been waking up every 2-3 hours.
Your gums are incredibly swollen, and you keep grabbing your ears,
which the doctor told us is a sign that your teeth hurt. It also looks
like you suck your thumb, because you rub it against your gums, trying
to get some relief. I see the top right one is finally starting to
poke through, so I hope that you'll feel better soon.
I really think you are getting more hair. Don't get me wrong. You
are still pretty much a baldie, but it's getting longer. I think your
hair is dark blond. Or light brown with golden highlights. Who would
have though I'd have a blond kid??? It's very pretty though. The sun
makes it sparkle.
You are learning sign language. You can do the sign for "dog."
You are so proud of yourself, and you do it whenever we say "What's
Friday?" or "Say Doggie". Sometimes you also say "Diday!"
when you do it. You are still a little confused though, and tend to
make the sign whenever you get happy or excited. Since "Doggie"
sounds so much like "Daddy" and "Duckie" you sometimes
make the sign for those words too. And you still call me "Da
Da." Oh well, soon enough!
You love playing with Daddy's face. You stick your finger in his ear,
grab his nose, grab his chin. You also like his tattoo and belly button.
They are very interesting to you!
You can stand all by yourself in the middle of the room without holding
on to anything. You have taken 2 steps on your own, but are in no
rush to walk. You are so good at crawling, I guess you just don't
see the point!
You have become obsessed with the toilet paper. Any chance you get
you crawl into the bathroom and try to unravel it.
You also love ripping apart magazines and catalogs. You make this
cute face as you try to tear the paper apart, like you are using all
still like to imitate coughing, and have begun to imitate sneezing
as well. You think it is hysterical when we say "Bless You!"
You love feeding people your food. Sometimes you get the most earnest,
sweet look on your face, as if you are saying, "Come on, just
eat a little. It's good for you!" Sometime though, you start
to feed us, and then quickly pop the food into your mouth, faking
us out. This is very funny, and you always giggle afterwards. You
like feeding Friday too. She has picked up on this, and can be found
standing next to your high chair any time you are in it.
You are still the Queen of Cheerios, and have begun trying to stuff
as many as possible into your mouth at once.
You love doing tricks. When we say "chew," you do exaggerated
chewing motions. When we say "How big is baby?" you throw
both arms in the air and yell along with us as we say, "Soooo
big." Then you always grab the side of your head for some reason.
are getting very tired of baby food. Sometimes you won't eat it at
all. You want big people food, and can eat most of what we eat. You
love all meat. You love toast. Also, melon, peaches, sweet potato,
homefries, egg yolk, rice, spaghetti, cheese, bread, green beans .
. . I guess pretty much everything. What a relief that you seem to
be an eater, since we are such a food loving family.
You are 28 inches tall and weigh 17.8 pounds.
