What she's up to:
-puts her blanket (burp cloth, fist, etc.) in her mouth
-HAS to have her eyes covered when trying to fall asleep. She loves to look at what's going on. I usually have to drape a blanket over my shoulder and her until she falls asleep.
-giggles when I tickle her
-loves mashed bananas
-spellbound by jewelry
-still scoots backward, but can also inch forward or spin around and can basically get any toy she wants (this has helped immensely in her ability to play for a while on her own while I do the dishes/fold laundry/pick up around her)
-touches and grabs our faces
-SMILEY smiley smiley when either of us comes home
-scrunches her nose and breaths really fast (like her mommy did when she was a baby)
-leans in and touches her forehead to the mirror when she sees herself
These are her main nicknames at the moment:
- (livy) loulou
You may be thinking 'really? that many nicknames' and the answer is yes. If you are my family then you completely understand, and know that the buck doesn't stop there. We (meaning I) do variations of those little nicknames, which creates a whole new slew of names (ie tink, honeybeetle, singer girl, baby singer, etc). If you were ever wondering you could ask me and I could explain the reason behind every single one of those. I hope that one day she'll learn her real name... or maybe she'll grow up thinking her real name IS tinkerbell.
I hope not though.
p.s. I am disgusting
