I am fascinated by your sounds. You've taken to chirruping around making little trumpeting noises and blowing raspberries. It's adorable. Your daddy said a while ago, wistfully, "She's gonna grow out of that someday."
And you will, your a baby on the cusp of toddler hood, thank heaven you're so tiny and like to snuggle still.
You love to go outside, you love to run away from home and you are really fast now, scary fast.
You charm everyone you meet and you continue to be full of smiles and delight. Oh my goodness how did two such pessimistic people get such a happy baby? You are always happy, it's fun.
And you adore your daddy. I'll have you almost asleep and he'll come home. You'll wake up at the sound of his voice and then yell when he walks away from you until he comes back to play.
You think your big brother and sister are pretty cool too. They carry you around and make you giggle and you get pretty cranky sometimes when you can't find them, or they (gasp) go and play together without you!
Another thing you really like is the grimy little strip at the back of the toilet bowl. You are very fond of running your little finger through the boy pee and grime there and get really angry when I drag you away and wash your hands. The bathroom doors now stay closed at all times to prevent you from your experiments in finger painting.
Here is a little clip I took of you today with your very fast walking and your love of the little red berries that grow nearby. They're not poisonous, but they're a good size to choke on so the framing suffers a little at the end when I wrest the berry from your mouth. I think you are just about the cutest thing ever so here's something for every one to look at and melt over. I love you Baby.
