This is our last weekly picture! Tear. My baby is growing so fast I can't stand it. She is doing big girl things like drinking from a sippy cup by herself and getting upset when she can't continue to try to eat my deodorant in the bathroom. Alright, I don't know if the latter is actually a big girl thing but she is most definitely expressing her opinion. She is very independent and can play for a long time by herself focusing on the task at hand. She loves her daddy. ALOT! She squeals with excitement when he walks into the room and loves to scale Mt. Daddy when he is laying on the floor. She tries to put her own shoes on her feet, is good at holding things by their proper handles and loves eating grapes. I mean seriously, she needs a 12 step program for the grapes. She is becoming and expert in the bathtub. She loves to "help" me fill the bath and watch it as it fills and excitedly waits to be placed in the water. She also loves to help me with the laundry and is an expert at closing the washer and dryer doors. She loves to watch the clothes spinning inside. She is a professional cat herder. An expert dog toy squeaker. A skilled bell ringer. A virtuoso on the toy piano. She is loved by mommy and daddy with everything we have in us.
This week's outtakes are typical of our photo sessions that last about 30 seconds to 1 minute typically, then she's out!
This is her telling me something extremely important.
