I thought I’d catch you up on what’s been happening around here.
Peanut is growing up way too quickly and I’m barely able to keep up. I want to make sure that I mark these down.
Last week I woke up around the usual 6 am and sleepily looked at the baby monitor. But Peanut wasn’t there. I used the camera to scan the crib and found her sitting up in the corner. Apparently, sometimes last week she learned not only how to scoot all the way down, but then propped herself up and was sitting, playing with her pacifier.
Last week we propped Peanut up on her walker, where she will usually wait until we push the walker for her to walk behind. This time she pushed the walker on her own and rushed forward.
Last weekend Peanut started to not only shuffler her way backwards, but pulling her legs up under herself and extending them all the way up, until she was almost standing.
Lately I’ve been standing Peanut up in her playpen while I preparing her bottles in the morning because she hates to be put down. This week she started hopping up and down in the playpen, and tonight, her crib.
This evening Peanut insisted on playing with my iPhone but we put it out of reach. It took her about 5 seconds to pull her legs under, then scramble her way across the rug and grab the phone. I wouldn’t quite call it crawling, but there was definite movement in the right direction.
Our daycare has been teaching Peanut to wave bye-bye and give kissy-kissy. This afternoon I picked her up and she waved bye-bye (with both hands and toad herself, but she waved) and gave me kisses. Then I died a little.
She’s been practicing sounds with her vocal cords and I swear that a few of them sound an awful lot like ma-ma. I get so excited that I rush to wherever she is. You know, just to solidify that it’s me she’s calling.
