That little baby of mine somehow manages to get cuter every month, I swear. Oh the things she does to my heart.
This month she:
+ Takes 1-2 steps by herself before tumbling to the ground.
+ Carries a book with her wherever she goes.
+ Giggles at everything. Sometimes I swear she thinks she's telling jokes.
+ Says "mama" and "dad" and really understands what they mean.
+ Says "up" when she wants to be held.
+ Says "uh-oh" (which sounds more like "uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-oh") when she drops something on the floor. Which is all the time.
+ Attempts to say "duck" ("dah") and "fish" ("ssh") whilst playing in the bathtub.
+ Signs "more" when she wants more food. And sometimes whenever she feels like it.
+ La-la-loves tangerines. And pretty much all fruits.
+ Hates all vegetables, except for very occasionally sweet potatoes and green beans.
+ Still dances about 90% of the day.
+ Claps enthusiastically the other 10%.
+ Blows kisses (which is more like smacking herself in the face repeatedly).
+ Drinks out of a straw.
+ Still nurses every 2-4 hours. It just depends.
+ Sleeps better, only waking up somewhere between 0-3 times per night, depending on the night. Huge improvement.
+ Loves to mimic everything we do.
+ Gives the best hugs, kisses, and endless cuddles.
+ Becomes totally entranced by the Barney Sing-A-Long on Netflix.
+ Has six teeth.
Ellie's oh-so-sweet side has really emerged this month, and I just can't get enough of her. She's the best entertainment and the best little buddy.
