|Girlfriend thinks this chair belongs to her. She figured out how to climb into it by herself and now any time she's near it she has to sit in it! Notice her tongue--she sticks it out a lot!|
Our thirteen-month-old doll has started communicating quite a bit! Honestly, her biggest form of communication is shaking her head no. Whenever I try to do her hair or buckle her into her car seat, she immediately starts shaking her head no. Which in part is hilarious and in part makes me crazy. She occassionally says "nuh nuh" for "no no" while she shakes her head, but it's usually just the shake. She does say "mama," "dah" for "dad" (though this is increasingly becoming "dada"), "buh" for "brother." She has started doing this intent one-handed stretch toward things she wants. She pointed once, but usually it's a full hand reaching with all her energy for the desired item.
|Just getting a drink from brother!|
|In the bath, post hives. The redness on the right side of her face and her chest are the fading hives (they had cleared up a lot at this point) and her right eye is still a little swollen and pink in the picture.|
|Just helping with the dishes. How tough are her sleeveless onesies?|
|One of her favorite drawers to empty. Also one of the most hodge-podge drawers in our house.|
Lila enjoys filling things up and dumping them out. We have these plastic balls that snap in half and Lila loves to snap them apart, put something inside, dump it out, put it back inside, dump it out...repeat. She also loves to empty the bottom drawer in my bathroom while I get ready. Lately, I've set her up on the counter beside me so she couldn't get to the drawer--and she started taking everything out of the basket of stuff on the counter.
|Dolly's signature hairdo. It comes from ripping out the cute little ponytails I put in her hair.|
|I was trying to take a stealth picture...|
|...and she caught me!|
|Trying to grab Reed's toy...|
|...and she got in a little over her head.|
|We have a milk drinker!|
|She tends to spit out full mouthfuls of milk if she gets too much, so she always drinks bibbed.|
