You are growing, growing, growing my girl. Your favorite things right now are mama, standing, eating only the food that your dad and I eat, and bath time. You have started imitating every so often, I blow raspberries at you, you do it back, I clap you clap, and it is the best. You are so active but aren’t crawling which sometimes is exhausting, you push us away to get on the floor but as soon as your there you aren’t sure what to do. I know you will get there in your own time and I am in no rush!
Summer is a sweet 17 days away. That means no more day care. No more work. Just you + me all day every day, which I am THRILLED for. Of course your dad too, but he still has to work so we get him at night. There have been so many first for you and I know that they will keep happening. I try to hold on to them all, soak them all in. Sweet girl, I love watching you learn, take in the world, observe everything. We pretty much stick to bottles when we are out now, because you get so distracted while nursing. Your dad calls you nosey, I like to call you curious.
You can clap and wave hi/bye, you clearly know who mama and dada are. You hate the vacuum, love music when you sleep and are still sleeping in our room. You have all sorts of sounds and when we hold your hands you can take a few steps forward which you think is the best thing ever. You are back to hating the car but you LOVE puffs and that makes car rides a little better.
Sweet girl of mine, I always want you to know how much I love you and how much I love watching you grow. I hope you always give those bear hugs and wet kisses.
