I can't hardly believe it, but we are now closer to Elyse's 1-year birthday than we are to the day she was born...how is that possible?!?
It's a rainy, cloudy day here so Elyse & I took advantage of the lazy morning & had a fun little photo shoot. I swear I have little miss photogenic on my hands, she certainly knows how to perform!
Most all of her sounds are happy, but she has also started this grunting stage which has nothing to do with her bowel movements...ha! I think she's started making this sound to get our attention & she's learned that eventually we'll do what she wants. It is the funniest sound & she went on & on for about 10 minutes the other day while we were having lunch out with my mom! You would swear that we were going to have a horrible diaper to deal with...but she's just trying to get her point across.
~Anything she can put in her mouth, especially Sofie the Giraffe!
~Sitting up like a big girl
~Singing the "little green frog" song & "head, shoulders, knees, & toes"
~Puppies, she loves any dog & just smiles so big as they move around her
~Water--she's always loved bathtime but she also loves the swimming pool!
~Jumper--She really enjoys the doorway jumper that I put up in the kitchen as I'm working around the house!
~Grocery shopping--She LOVES going to Walmart/Target or anywhere that involves riding in the cart. She is the biggest hit when we go to the store so I've started running my errands with her!
~Textures: She is really developing her sense for textures and loves to feel anything new...whether it's grass, concrete, glass, a fuzzy blanket, she will scratch her fingernails along with texture to learn all about what she's feeling.
~Nasal Aspirator: She definitely does not enjoy this and we had to use it a lot when she had her cold a few weeks ago! It was guaranteed to produce some real tears.
