This is madness. How could she grow so fast? When, at her checkup, the doctor says things like "roll over", "solid foods", and "sitting up," I think NO NO NO. She is still a newborn! She is not - she cannot be - growing up! "Four shots" is not popular either, but when he says "sleeping through the night" it's okay. I like that one.
I have titled this age "Take-Aim-and-Grab (and-then-stuff-it-in-your-mouth)." Every day she becomes more adept at obtaining her target, which means that, among other things, the days of holding her on my lap at the table while I eat are numbered. But it also means she is just starting to hold a small toy and entertain herself with it for a few minutes. There is also some friendly pummel-and-claw action while she nurses, which is a great reminder to me to keep those nails trimmed! This girl is strong.She loves the morning walk to school - so entertaining to watch her sisters on their scooters and get some fresh air. Sometimes we also sit outside after dinner to blow bubbles and wait for Ed to come home. See how small she is?
But cute. So cute. At least one thing never changes.
