We have hit so many milestones in the last couple of weeks, I don’t even know where to begin…
Adella has learned how to pull herself up on just about everything. We are greeted every morning and after every nap to her standing in her crib yapping and pointing to all the pacifiers she threw out. It’s a new game that we’re not too happy about, as it cuts about an hour off of her sleep time. Normally she would suck on her pacifier and sleep till about 8:30 or 9 but NOW she likes to throw everything out of her crib, watch it drop to the ground, point at it, then cry for it… between 6:30-7:30 am.
She loves the stairs and flocks to them all day so we had to install gates to keep her off. Now she holds onto the gates, points at the stairs, and does her little gurgle sound that she makes when she wants something.
Adella’s two top teeth have popped through, with a gap and all… (something Tim forgot to mention he had when he was little)They are huge too!!
I can’t remember if I mentioned this before but she knows how to give a high five. A couple of days ago I asked her where her toes were and she pointed and grabbed them… so now it’s a new game we play “Where are your toes?”. We’re working on eyes, nose and mouth, but it gets a little confusing.
She gives kisses now, or leans in to kind of give a kiss when asked for one. “Doggy” and “Dadda” are still her favorite words, but I get a “Mama” every once in a while.
ANNNNNDDDD I have successfully weaned!! It all started about a week ago, we gradually added whole milk to bottles and now it’s almost 100% whole milk.
It’s kind of sad…. all these huge things happening all at once.
One of Adella’s most favorite places to play is in her closet :). She LOVES to pull out all of her shoes and try to get them on, as well as look through all the lovely pieces hanging. I don’t blame her, it’s one of my most favorite things to do as well. It just makes me happy.
