Well our little critter went and grew two months in the blink of an eye. Crawling, check. Cruising, nearly. Standing up against anything and everything, YES. Hair still sticky-uppy, see for yourself.
Still all about grown-up food, yes. Steak, salmon, green peppers, pears, strawberries, chili, potatoes, cheese, you name it. If someone else is eating it, she wants it. And she loves her little sippy cup.These days Poppy has an eclectic set of interests: balloons, toilets, clothes pins, shoes, painting, canned goods, tissues, snow and loud noises are just a few. Plus anything her sisters are doing.It's a great age for fill-and-spill. Empty tissue boxes are especially fun to put things in and take things out of, but Tupperware and plastic bowls do the job just as well. She also loves to wrestle and laugh raucously; there is nothing cuter than a baby with a sense of humor.Rolling is overrated. She's done it on occasion so I know she can, but she does not care to. When she falls on her back, she is stuck like a beached whale and needs help sitting back up or getting on her tummy. This might annoy some parents but I find it a great boon to my life - the 10-month-0ld's resistance to diaper changes is furious and intense, and can result in wrestling matches at best and serious injury at worst...if your kid rolls. But all Poppy does is go purple in the face crunching her abs trying to sit straight up. Oh, she tries hard, and probably one of these days she'll do it, but for now let's keep rolling a secret!
