Wowzers. My Baby Girl is determined to grow up fast! She is literally growing and getting taaalller and taller. She is also trying to do everything and anything the big kids are doing. She does not want to be left out.
Example A. The Backpack. I had to get her one because she kept trying to wear the boys'. Of course, they do not like that. A girl needs her own stuff anyway.
And naturally she is very into shoes. Her brothers', mine, even daddy's. She will often get upset when I take her shoes off. She is just starting to wear 'big girl' shoes and it's pretty fun.
Speaking of Daddy...The Babe and her daddy have become pretty tight lately. They like to hang out. Daddy makes her laugh. And she likes to feed him!
The Babe has been mimicking sounds for a little while now. I wasn't sure at first if she was really saying words, but she definitely is. She says her brothers name. In fact, I think that was her first word. The first one I recognized. The longer one mostly, but I've heard her say the other one too. She says 'hi' and 'bye' and 'uckie' and 'hi daddy'. I really expect her to be quite a chatterbox. She has the gift of gab like her Nana! **Hi Nana**
She also loooves animals. She sqeals and gets excited whenever she sees them. She almost jumped out of her seat and jabbered on like crazy when she saw the horses at the zoo. I guess they are her favorite?
I really am excited for all the new things my babe is doing these days. She is so much fun and we all enjoy her so much.
I just wish she wasn't in such a hurry to grow up.
Although I suspect that is not going to change anytime soon.
