...there are really no words to express how it feels to see your baby like this...
So what else is new this month, besides walking? It seems like she's always doing cute new things. Here are a few new skills:
- Parts of the body she knows well - eyes, nose, mouth, teeth, tongue, chin, hair, ears, hands, fingers, toes, tummy, (belly) button.
- New words - Nana and huh uh (as in NO). This brings her vocabulary to 8 regularly used words (Dada, Mama, Lola, Hi, Bah Bah, Nana, Huh Uh, and What's That?) She'll also say "Hi Mama," "Hi Dada," "Hi Lola," and "Hi Nana."
- New food - frozen lemonade
One of her cutest new skills is praying at meal time. Here's a video...
Feeding is still Medium-Well and holding steady. She weighs 20 lbs, 9 oz. She had been stuck bouncing between 19 1/2 and 20 lbs since the beginning of July until a couple of weeks ago. Dr. Y. told me that once she started walking she would start gaining weight again. I hope we catch this upswing and pick up a big gain now that she's walking!
