Holy canoli...she's 15 months now. In the blink of an eye, you'll hear me say, "Holy canoli, she's 15 YEARS now". Eek!
She's learning to pick up around the house. She knows that there are stuff that are meant for the trash and will walk over to the trash can, wait for you to open it up and she'll deposit it into the can and close the lid with a florish
She drinks beautifully with a cup - although the initial sip is always overestimated, and she ends up dousing herself with water.
She LOVES to play outside.
She knows that to go outside, she has to put on her shoes, her coat and her hat. And therefore will gather those said items first before trying to convince me to venture the brave outdoors. Either that, or I'll have to remind her, and she'll look at me with a puzzled expression, slowly process the words and will run around the house looking for them. Bonus points for her when the items are not in the "normal spot" (which it usually isn't)
And if I'm really slow, she'll try to put her shoes, coat and hat on by herself
And if I tell her that we are staying inside, this is what she thinks of it:
Yeah...can't wait for warmer weather, when we get to go through that every day.
She's self sufficient now...meaning - she can feed herself yogurt with a spoon.
Look at her concentration!
And the mess!! But the food does get in the tummy, which is the only concern I have. And also, how can your heart (and OCD tendencies) not melt when you see how proud she is with herself?
She runs around with the gusto of a herd of elephants. She sounds like a herd of elephants too. She must get that from me. (Yes, I'm all of 110 lbs, but I sound like a rhinoceros)
She also conveys "bye bye" beautifully by waving and giving a smacking kiss. When her daddy leaves for work every morning, at the sound of the slamming of the glass door, she'll automatically wave and give a flying kiss.
Her favourite activites are to draw, to play the piano (gosh, she loves music), to go through books, to play outside, to play hide and seek, to cuddle with Momma, to meddle around with stuff that she's not technically suppose to meddle with, but I let her, so it's not really her fault (i.e. "reading" my books, playing with my makeup, etc. Nothing harmful or dangerous)
Additionally, she also likes Girl Scout cookies.
