Happy Monday friends! I know you get a weekly daily dose of Laina but it’s been a while since I’ve given you a sufficient update on her milestones! So today I’ve got more than just a portrait of her….read on for more about her favorite things to do these days.
- blowing bubbles
- going for walks
- “swimming” (really, just being in pools)
- being outside
- buckling all buckles
- shoes…all kinds of shoes!
- blueberries – she may turn into a blueberry
- more (this girl wakes up hungry and can seriously eat all day long!)
- Hi Belle! (actually, she calls all dogs Belle…all the neighborhood dogs are Belle!)
- mama and dada
A COOL/ADORABLE THING: When we have Finn and she see’s him, she let’s out the sweetest excited squeal in delight! She runs to him, wraps her arms around him and says: “Ahhhhhh!”
She blows my mind with all that she can do and even more so, how much more she can actually understand. One night, she was all ready for bed and I said: Say goodnight to Finn. She ran over to him, arms up in the air for him to pick her up. Another time I was taking her clothes off before bath time and I handed her her shirt and said: Put it in the hamper. And don’t you know, she grabbed it, ran to the hamper, plopped it in, and gave me a huge, proud smile! So that’s her first chore! I mean, I had no idea she knew what the hamper was! But I guess she’s seen me do it enough that she just knew what to do!
So what does all this mean for me? Aside from being insanely proud, I gotta say, I’m quite nostalgic thinking that just one year ago she was so tiny and still slept most of the time. They say babies grow up fast and I get it, and they do, but still….it’s kind of a shocker when you see how many changes happen in one year. She still gives me baby fever.
