So yesterday was the baby’s 11 month birthday. She celebrated by finally, FINALLY, getting her first tooth:
See my new toofie? It's small but it's fierce!
That tooth has been along time (and a lot of sleepless nights and days spent rocking an upset child) coming.
On the whole she’s doing great. She chases and plays with her doggie constantly – which would upset him if she didn’t also feed him constantly:
One Cheerio for me, One for Doggie.
Want some venison risotto, Dexter?
It’s pretty tasty.
She’s an insane eater. Really. Kid loves flavor. Like curry and spicy burritos and pepperoni and asparagus. But she’s still a kid so Mac 'n Cheese is definitely a staple round these parts.
Mac'npeas'ncheese is the best zzzzzzz
And when her belly is full she sings. No, really. A full chorus on how awesome her feast was. La la la la la la…
She also kisses the baby in the mirror, which is about the most adorable thing ever:
And she’s really into her stuffed animals lately. Poking at their eyes and giving them hugs. Total cuteness.
Her main goal in life is to be free to explore. She’s figured out how to open doors if they aren’t latched and knows which ones push and which ones pull.
Am I not allowed in here? Huh.
She hates being restrained/restricted in any way. For example the only way she’ll play with her bounceroo is this:
Put her in it and she’ll bounce around for one rotation, figure out that’s all she can do, and get PIST. But she loves playing with it this way so more power to her.
She doesn’t stand yet and shows no interest in walking. Why bother when she’s so speedy quick crawling? That she’s perfected. She crawls like a normal kid on the carpet and then scoots once she hits wood floor. It’s crazy how quick she can scoot.
Although I'm guessing when she finally does stand it will be to get at the dog:
Doggie! Come. Here.
The best toys are either vroom vrooms - things with wheels that she can push around:
or shaka-shaka's - things she shake to make noise:
Although her fav things to play with are whatever I'm doing. She has pulled apart many a ball of yarn while I'm re-skeining. I even made her her very own knitting bag with a notebook and a tape measure and a few other baby safe things. Hours of fun right there.
Oh and of course she loves the remote. As soon as she gets ahold of it she holds it up in the air and aims it at the tv to see what will happen when she pushes the buttons.
I can’t believe it’s almost been a year.
