This will forever be known as the month where you got into everything. By everything, I mean everything. You started crawling everywhere and pulling yourself up on everything and there wasn’t a place in the house that you wouldn’t venture. Nothing, from the kitties’ water dishes to the entertainment center, was safe from your curious hands this month.
Here’s a little of what else happened this month:
You’re morphing into a toddler right before our very eyes. Your hair is coming in, and your mama doesn’t have a clue what to do with it most days. You’ll keep a barrette in for about 2 seconds, but most days you go without. Your blue eyes are still very blue, which I think is a shock to everyone. I think we all thought my brown eyes would win out, but you definitely take after your dada’s side with those beautiful blues.
Your top left tooth came through, and the right one is sure to follow suit. The bottom two teeth weren’t that big of a deal, but these top two have taken forever and must have made you so uncomfortable. You’ve been a little bit on the feisty side.
You are so curious about the world around you. You’ve taken a particular interest in your kitties. You will chase them all over the house. You really like Oliver, because he’ll actually let you pet him occasionally. And by pet, I mean maul. You will grab his fur and bury your head in his belly. He tolerates it and you just love him.
You continue to think that your mother is a jungle gym. If I am laying on the floor with you, I will spend the whole time getting trampled and climbed on. This brings me back to the days when you were little and could only roll and would steamroll your way over me to get somewhere. What’s the deal with that?
Your little personality frequently has us in stitches. This month I became aware of your inner diva. You definitely yell when you can’t get to something you want, or when you want someone to turn the page in the storybook, or when you don’t have enough food on your tray. This wouldn’t be such a big deal, but you are a really loud kid. Your voice carries. We’re going to have to find ways of dealing with this newfound sassiness.
You have learned several new tricks this month. You can now wave, clap, smack your lips, and give kisses on command. Also, when we ask you what the kitty says, you will sometimes give us a high-pitched mew. But that’s pretty selective. Overall, I’m amazed at how much you have learned in a month.
You also learned how to sleep through the night this month, with a little help from your parents. You are now sleeping all night without waking up, most nights during the week. Thank goodness!
We love you, little one!
