So there’s apparently been some complaint that I haven’t posted any recent baby pictures. That it’s been… HORROR… weeks since I updated some straight up baby news. So how about some random pictures taken about an hour ago?
The disclaimer: I did not clean her up or style her for this photoshoot. She’s got a nice toddler patina going on and my attempt to make her sunscreen greasy hair cute with pigtails pretty much made it worse. Also I’m farily certain she’s wearing a boy’s onsie. Eh. It’s summer.
Noone cares, mommy. I'm cute even covered in animal cracker crumbs.
So she still at 14 months does not walk yet. She’s extremely stubborn about it, actually. She has the motor skills required but she refuses help. Most babies will let you hold their hands so they can take some practice steps. Not this kid. Her motto? I DO MY SELF.
Which makes this car thing her favorite toy ever:
She pushes it all around the backyard happy as a clam to be cruising on her own.
She does stop occasionally to practice standing on her own. Sadly not for long enough to be caputred on film.
She also stops to blow kisses to the birds.
Or to point at one and say “SEE”
Basically if she hears a bird chirp she points at the nearest tree looking for it. It’s pretty adorable.
When she has to get somewhere in a hurry, though, the car will not do.
Then she monkey crawls on all fours.
Yeah she’s got the getting around without walking thing down to a science. On carpet she crawls, on wood floor she scoots, and on grass or pavement she goes up on all fours.
I think she could solve all of those problems by just walking already but she doesn’t listen to mommy. Ever.
Whatever. It works fine. Walking is overrated.
The best ever, though is daddy.
Because then she can do this:
It’s going to be a fun summer.
