Since you began crawling a mere two weeks ago, you have become an expert at pulling yourself up to everything as well. Your favorite thing to pull up to is the coffee table and you have even begun taking steps around it and transferring from the coffee table to the couch. I'm guessing your toddler days are not too far away.
In the event that all the bedroom doors are closed, you will settle happily for your Little People. You especially love the farm and every time you find the cow you hold it up and say, "Moo!" You have also been working on your "baa," "neigh," and "ruff."
The musical instruments remain a favorite and you especially love the jingle bells and finger cymbals. Unfortunately, you get mad at us a lot because we have to take the jingle bells away when you begin sucking on them. You began "dancing" this month to music (especially when Daddy plays the guitar and sings) and you can't help but jiggle your legs or body around in the cutest fashion.
For your birthday you received your very own baby doll and you could not have been happier. For the past couple mornings after you get up, I find you standing in your crib and reaching desperately for the baby. You absolutely know that the baby is yours and make quite a commotion if anyone tries to take it from you. You really don't like it when Allie tries to show you how to play with it.
Your favorite things to eat are graham crackers, cheerios, baked oatmeal, any fruit, turkey, beans, grilled cheese, and sweet potatoes. You aren't too keen on green veggies, but you will eat peas over green beans any day. You also absolutely refuse to eat any pre-packaged meals. Although you eat what I cook for the rest of us each night, I picked up some easy Gerber meals just in case I needed a quick dinner for you in a pinch. I tried one out this past weekend (pasta with meatballs and green beans): you took a huge bite, spit it out, and refused to consume any more.

- All done (sounds like "Ah-duh")
- What's That? (sounds like "dis?")
- Tickle (ok...so no one would even recognize this as a word but me, but every morning when I'm changing your clothes, you tickle your belly and try your hardest to say "tickle, tickle"...then you reach out to me and tickle my face and say the same exact thing!)
- No (sounds like "Na-na-na")
- Thanks (sounds like "Taks")
