You're such a character. I love how your laughs are intentionally now and boy, are you on the move. You're crawling everywhere, trying to discover everything - even things you have no business touching. We're at the point of baby proofing the house because you'll be walking in no time. You're grabbing onto anything that can hold you up and standing victoriously. You have three bottom teeth now and one top tooth that's peeking through. I'm sure by this time next month, you'll be looking like a full blown toddler. (Which I can't even deal with, by the way.)
You're such a big girl and totally eating little puffs and nibbling on bits of pancakes. I have to admit you chewing solid foods gives me anxiety, but I know you'll be okay. You recognize Grandma and Grandpa when we FaceTime them now which makes their heart melt. While you're not totally saying "Mommy" and "Daddy" yet, you make the M and D sound which indicates you're almost there.
You are really into clapping your hands and waving "hi" and "bye." It was pretty cool watching you discover that you could do that and get excited about it. While you can't pull it off, you love when I blow you kisses when you're leaving in the morning. And that smile I get out of you is what keeps me going. It will always keep me going.
I love you.
