Skills: She says Mama sometimes to me, and sometimes says Dada to Kevin. She says "J" sometimes in the general direction of James. She points to stuff she wants. She claps with delight or to music.
She understands "no" but just laughs and shakes her head when you try to tell her she can't do something. We're in so much trouble.
The face she makes when you say "no!"
She can stand and balance, cruise from furniture to furniture, and occasionally dances on the spot, and has attempted a step forward, but she hasn't successfully walked yet. But we're sure it's going to happen soon!
Standing and bopping.
Sleep: She's still sleeping through the night but waking up a bit earlier. She's been sleeping from 7:40 pm to 7 - 8 am. I am definitely worried about what will happen during daylight savings time.
We still hold her for naps, but to be fair we haven't even tried to put her down in ages. Because she defeated us.
Shaking her finger "no" while sleeping!
Food: She eats everything. If you try to give her something you wouldn't personality eat, she calls you out on it by spitting it out and pointing at what you're eating. But if it's delicious enough for you, it's delicious enough for her. Her favorites are probably bread, mac n' cheese, and beef.
I eat cheerios and judgment for breakfast.
Dada brushing her 4 teeth.
Personality: Oh she's the best. Feisty and determined. She has her own little rebel sense of humor, and giggles all the time. She gets her way... or else.
Just microwaving some veggies and ...
... grilling up some chicken.
Kevin is obsessively in love. Me too.
James is her best friend. It's them against the world. Even when she tortures him, which is several times a day every day, he's very patient with her.
Oh I just took your seat. Deal with it.
Playing in their room.
You're in my way!
When James tries to go to the potty alone.
Little late-night cooking.
It's a ghost!
No it's James!
Oh, okay... here then.
He loves her!
And she loves him!
If you're still here, I lost all the Miranda pregnancy weight, though I'm still rocking about 6 pounds of James pregnancy weight still.
