A few cute pictures

Some pictures to share:


Currently, she loves to put socks on her hands - even better if she's just pulled them off her feet!

She also loves going for rides in the laundry basket with all her books piled in with her.

Eating with a spoon is much less messy than it used to be - not that you can tell from this picture! (Her fork skills are pretty good too.)

Using her rocking chair.

Ov ooo

I know I need to put pictures up and I am a total blog slacker, but still, I had to share this.

This morning, Aidan was hugging my leg and I was hugging her back and said, "I love you." Aidan said back, "Ov ooo."

Pretty cool, huh?

She's doing a lot of mimicking sounds/words lately. It is so darn cute. And Christianne has been working with her on animal sounds. She knows lion, dog, sheep, and cat. You should hear her roar. Too cute.

Back to work, but I had to share.

I'm a big girl now!

Aidan has decided that she is now a big girl and I wanted to share some recent examples of her big girl endeavors.
  • She is occasionally using 2-3 word phrases such as "I go now" and "I want that."
  • She is developing definite opinions about articles of clothing she wants to wear and voicing those opinions strongly.
  • Yesterday, she climbed up into a chair at the table, reached for a napkin, put it in her lap, and ate her cheese sitting at the table (with one attempt to run off with a handful of cheese).
  • She is eating with a fork and prefers her food in a bowl rather than on her tray.
  • She can climb into the car and into her carseat by herself.
  • She is beginning to pretend using objects in novel ways (e.g.,pretending the remote is a phone).
I'm sure there are some other things, but those are the highlights. Oh, and she's learning to put things away after she gets them out (with direction from me, but she knows where things go) and likes to help put laundry in the dryer and take it out again. It is amazing to see her just take off developmentally. She really is her own person! And (most of the time) quite delightful!
