She stands up everywhere and is beginning to let go for longer moments. She claps and cheers when she thinks something is good. She raises her arms and says "Woo" to call the Hogs!
She still has fussy moments, but the crazy screaming for no good reason seems to have passed for now. Maybe it's because we're doing something right, or maybe it's because I was listening to parenting audio books in the car and she's just been paying attention. Lol. But seriously, somebody knock on wood, lest she start back with the crazy screaming.
She loves to take a bath, needs to know where her dogs are at all times, has 4 teeth on top & 4 on bottom, waves & says "hi!" to everyone she sees, and can eat her weight in watermelon.
The biggest change is her vocabulary. She talks SO much! Sure, she babbles like any baby, but she also has real words that you can understand. I'm amazed at her every day.
Eleanor's words that can be understood without context:
- Uh Oh
- Night Night
- Woof Woof
- Balloon (Babboo)
- Bottle (Baba)
- Elmo (MoMo)
- Stay (she holds her finger out and says "STAY!" to the dogs and it's hilarious)
- Banana (Nana)
She is happy to show you her tongue, head, eyes, and belly button on command. Sometimes she can also show you her nose, teeth, ear, and toes. Be warned, if you ask about her belly button first then the game is over. She can't possibly concentrate on any other body part once you've mentioned her belly button!
She's so curious and friendly. Really, what a joy she is!
