~ You are standing all by yourself for 10-15 seconds without holding onto anything.
~ You have taken quite a few steps between the coffee table and the couch, or Mommy and Daddy's arms.
~ You get up on your feet with your knees bent and are so close to standing straight up without pulling on anything.
~ You are such a good eater. A few recent favorites are Mac&Cheese, blueberries, and fish sticks.
~ You have learned the games "So Big", "Where is your nose" (though you point at our noses, not your own), and blowing kisses. You learned all these new games from Nanny and Grandma O when visiting and very proudly showed off for us when we got home.
~ You are such a talker. You put so many sounds together and carry on quite a conversation. Papa Kurt thinks you are moments away from "making some sense".
~ Each day you become more and more cuddling. You prefer to sit on our laps when you play, so will crawl up or pull on our pants legs insisting we pick you up.
~ I've found you on the second step heading on your way upstairs. No grandmother is admitting they taught you that trick yet, but I'm sure I'll figure out the culprit soon. :) Time to install that baby gate!
~ You are learning to 'read' by yourself. You pick up your books, open them, point out the pictures, and narrate the story to yourself.
You have changed so much this month. You are no longer a baby, but well on your way to toddlerhood. It makes us so happy and sad at the same time. We cherish every single moment with you and love the little girl you are becoming.
