Week 38 has arrived as expected...and V is constantly on the go. She is now able to pull herself up easily and stand and play for a while. She will even bravely stand with one hand holding her. She is gradually getting better at figuring out how to get back down from the standing position and unfortunately has had her first standing injury while trying to get down. She bumped her head and had a small bruise. She cried a bit and mommy kissed it away and then she was ready to try it again. It scared the heck out of me more than her I'm sure.
She has also started whispering. It is the cutest thing to hear. She will be crawling around and talking and then whispering. It's like she is talking to herself formulating a plan. I love it and I can't get enough of it. Her Grandee taught her well.
We have played peekaboo with her since birth and this week we both witnessed on separate occasions her playing it with us. I saw it while she was on her changing table and she had a shirt that I was going to put on her in her hands. She would pull the shirt up over her face and then put it down real fast. So now I say "where's Vivienne" when she hides her face and then when she shows it I say "there she is" and she just laughs and laughs. It usually ends with me kissing her like crazy because I just can't help myself!
I am working on my stealth picture taking skills now that it is almost impossible for V to stay on her back longer than 1.4 seconds...
