Sorry I''ve been a slacker lately! Momma had a big boo boo so I had been spending a lot of time with my Nana V and my Grandmomma over the last few weeks. It was fun getting to know them better! Nana V came up on January 3rd and stayed with us all the way until this last Tuesday (the 19th) and then my Grandmomma came over Tues, Wed, and Thurs to play with me and help Momma out for the rest of the week. Momma is feeling SO much better now! She can pick me up and even snuggle me some (as long as I''m not too wiggly). She is so thankful for all of the love and support (and flowers and dinners) from all of our family and friends!
My physical development has BOOMED! I am walking all the time now (very rarely will I crawl)! I can stand myself up (without needing to pull-up on something). I am squatting and picking up toys and standing straight up from that crouch position. I can throw a ball, though my aim is a little off ;) and Momma SWEARS she heard me say "ball" twice this week.
I can point out your nose and your mouth and I''m really close to being able to point out your eye. I am giving kisses, but they are usually on your leg or arm. I will kiss Daddy on his cheek, but am stingy with cheek kisses for Momma. :(
I make specific sounds to get attention and Momma can usually tell what my little noises mean. I am signing "more" more often and will sign "all done" when I''m frustrated. I have started making the SADDEST looking pout face when my feelings are hurt or when I am actually hurt (like when I stuck my hand on the space heater for half a second last week- I was fine, but I sure did make the SADDEST pout).
Momma and Grandmomma took me to a playdate on Tuesday at my friend Delaney''s house. A LOT of my friends were there and I had a ton of fun playing with the little toy guitar and climbing all over the the plastic cube thingie that had a slide on it. I also managed to pull some hair while we were there. No playdate would be complete without a *little* hair tug from me ;)
I am looking forward to having Aunt Deanne come visit for a bunch of days in early February and then Lito and Lita are coming on the 11th and staying for LOTS of days, AND Tia Juanita and Tio Ed are coming on the 12th and staying for that weekend. Momma''s gonna be busy washing the guest bed sheets, but it will be SO worth it! I can''t wait for all of my visitors!
On a sad note, sort of, Momma got an email a couple of weeks ago from the aboutmybaby website that said that they are shutting down in a couple of months!! GAH!!! Momma''s doing some research and looking around for a new place to host our family website. So, keep an eye out for a new website announcement in the near future!
