Now that Adrianna has started crawling, the world is hers. She is crawling everywhere and keeping us on our toes. She especially likes to crawl towards things that are off-limits (like books, magazines, and the Christmas tree) or she likes to follow me. Such a cutie. I guess we need to child-proof our house now.
She has been saying mama for quite some time, though I am not still 100% sure if it is in reference to me. Sometimes it seems like it is; other times it seems like she is just babbling. Today she said dada and when her Grammy said, “Dada go bye-bye” Adrianna repeated, “ba-bye.”
Her Grammy asked Adrianna, “Where’s your bee?” Adrianna immediately turned and grabbed her little stuffed bee! What a little smartie! Her comprehension of words is totally increasing. She also recognizes when I ask her, “What does the doggie (or kitty, lion, etc) say?” She gets a grin on her face as she anticipates and knows that I will follow up that question with the animal noise.
She has been clapping her hands for a few weeks. She will now clap them when we clap our hands, tell her to clap her hands, or tell her to play patty-cake.
And oh, the kisses she gives! I don’t even have to ask anymore. Often times she will grab my face as if to pull it to hers, and give me the biggest, most slobbery kisses. I love her kisses. I love that she is such a cuddly and affectionate little baby.
