Okay, I just HAVE to tell somebody about RObin's cute new tricks.
IF you give her anything remotely electronic looking, she holds it to her ear like its a phone and babbles. ANd if I say "Hello, Hello!" she immediately puts her hand to her ear like a phone. Everybody who calls me has to talk to her for aminute, and she leans her ear into the phone and smiles this huge smile.
After trying for weeks to get her to STOP pulling the cat's hair, she has figured it out and now pats her (and the dog, when he lets her) very sweetly. The first time she did it to both of them, they sat there and let her, and she smiled and laid her head on them - so sweeet.
Finally, she has this big life-sized bunny book that is her favorite. She has for the past few weeks been climing up on her rocking chair and reaching behind it to play with her board books, including th ebunny book. THe other day she was toddling around in the den and I started asking her "Where's your bunny book". She stopped, climbed up on the chair and picked out the bunny book! I mean, it is always her first choice, but she knew to go get her book!
I went to the salvation army Friday and they had this rocking chair that, instead of a chair, has a stuffed bunny - you sit in it's lap, it's arms are the chair arms, etc. I cleaned it up this weekend, and gave it to her. She LOVES it - pats it, lays her head down, etc.
Okay, just had to brag a little. I nkow it's obnoxious
. This is just such a fun stage - she's learning things so quickly!
Of course, this morning she spent the entire morning screaming anytime I dared put her down. I ended up bringing my birthday cake ingredients to the floor and making it on the ground, and she still fussed even though she was in my lap!
