Lots of Standing and a New Game
Adrianna has been practicing her standing skills quite a bit these days.She will boost herself to the standing position while in the middle of the living room floor with nothing to hold onto for support, and can stay in this position for about 10-15 seconds, after which she usually gets excited and plops back down onto her little bottom. Since she uses only her legs to boost herself up, and does it over and over, her little legs must be getting really strong. She can also toddle for about 2-5 steps at a time.
Here is my little princess in her princess nightgown.
Adrianna and Daddy (and Chloe)
Adrianna’s new game is that she likes to put toys in my mouth. She will get right up in my face and be holding a toy up to my mouth, while opening up her own mouth as if to show me what is expected. When I open my mouth, she inserts the toy. It should be noted that they are not little, chokeable toys, but are large enough that the entire toy will not fit in my mouth. She just wants me to hold it with my teeth I guess. If I lean in closer to her, with the toy still in my mouth, she will also lean in and put the other end of the toy (that is still sticking out from my mouth) into her mouth, so that we both have a portion of either end in our teeth. Weird, but cute. We played this game over and over yesterday.
