Because when it’s a rainy and cold day, and poppi and megee won’t answer facetime, we take selfies of our tricks and then text them over.
This also seemed like great baby book material.
(Can anyone say first child?).
So. Without further ado.
Where’s your teeth?
What does curious George do?
(Curious George covers his eyes and plays hide and seek with the bunny).
Not pictured are tongue and belly button and hair.
She is also a huge fan of high fives. Particularly enjoys high fiving with her friends Zoe and Jaden.
Standing up is a huge trick, normally only done when she’s hyper, crazy or tired but becoming a little bit more of a common occurrence.
If asked where Moma’s baby is, she lifts up my shirt and now pats my belly. (Previously, she only stabbed my belly button.) She gets the biggest kick out of this and throws her head back and laughs after saying hi to the baby. I’d love to know how much she grasps.
I love how she marches to the beat of her own drum. When we were thinking about when baby number two could come along, I was watching all of Ev’s older friends and kinda judging their independence levels: when did they walk, when did they feed themselves, etc. And decided, oh sure, she’ll be little miss independent by 18 months.
And maybe she will be. That’s a little over a month away. And lot’s can change in a month. But for now, we chuckle at how she marches through life. If it’s a social setting, she’s pretty much stuck to her parents (or grandparents if they’re there). If she’s playing with other kids, it’s kinda like the tortoise and the hare. Except I don’t think she ever wins any races. She and her cousin were going crazy last night. He was running back and forth and she was crawling madly after him; kinda looked like he was taking his dog for a run.
She’s a hoot. And we think she’s pretty darn adorable.
Love to you all on this first day of spring and let us all rejoice in tomorrow’s weather. (Except for my dear Boston friend. I’ve been keeping an eye on your weather and in case you didn’t know, more snow’s coming your way. But after that there’s sun!)
