Miss Moose Mouse
Time for some lists, lest I forget these things...
She is 13 months, and here is where she is right now:
Words she can sign:
more, all done, milk, up
Words she can sign with help:
please, eat, bath/wash
Words she can say:
Mama, Dada, Ben (den), night night (nigh nigh), up (uh), dog (wuh wuh), light (ait), ball (ba), school bus (bu). She has tried Granny, Nana, and Papa before, too. But I don't think I have heard her try Grandpa yet...though that is a tough one!
Body parts she can ID on either herself or others:
belly, nose, hair, mouth...and sometimes toes and eyes
Animal sounds she can make:
elephant, dog...and sometimes frog and duck
-She can give high-fives.
-She can give kisses, though they can be a little wet:)
-She can go get a book when we ask her to.
-She can get her jacket and shoes when we ask her to. If she sees her shoes randomly, she will stop what she is doing and bring them over to me, then sit down in my lap and expect me to put them on her:) She does the same thing with her little, purple jacket.
-She can shake her head no.
-She has recently gotten a big kick of out of turning in a circle. Now that she is walking well, she likes to challenge herself, I guess. She will just randomly start turning in a circle, and then laugh and laugh about it! She will stop, look at me to make sure that I am watching, and then turn and laugh some more:)
-She is still a little bit of a dare devil...the picture above is proof enough!
Favorite foods: CREAM CHEESE!!! Yogurt, popcorn, veggie puffs, strawberries, pears, cheese, Pesto Cavatapi pasta from Noodles and Company, and Broccoli and Cheddar soup from the St. Louis Bread Company. She will still eat some purees, so we keep giving them to her, to increase her vegetable count. She still likes carrots, sweet potatoes, and green beans this way.
Still me:) She LOVES LOVES her mama still. We will be playing throughout the day, and at random, unexpected intervals, she will just drop what she is doing and come right over for a huge hug. It is the sweetest thing. Makes my "job" as the mama so completely rewarding. She loves lots of other people, too, but I have to admit that I am still her favorite holder/playmate/snuggle partner/etc.
