It’s amazing how quickly things change with babies and toddlers. Just the other day I was saying to Sara, my very good friend, how Amelia had surpassed Mojo and Rosie. You can see her learning and understanding whereas Mojo will blankly look at you. We were laughing at it because all of us who have had a baby, have at one stage treated them like a performing monkey, myself included. But now Amelia will only do it if it pleases her. I admire her for it!
Today, out of nowhere, while Adam was giving our back yard an Army haircut (seriously, I was aghast), Amelia decided she wanted to watch one of her Baby Einstein DVD’s. She turned on the TV, grabbed the DVD remote and found the play button! Uh oh…better watch out…soon she’ll be thinking she can navigate her way around getting a DVD in and out of the player!
Tonight, after a fun outing and her much needed Daddy time, we laid her down to sleep but she wasn’t having it, instead she shouted to let her out to play. It rarely happens now but the usual crying changed to that “get-up-and-run-to-her-this-is-serious” crying. She had jammed her leg in her crib slats and turned it the wrong way. Luckily it just pinched her. Poor girl but it did win her a little more time out of the crib so she could forget what had happened.
But, there won’t be any pics of the crying – only the laughing!
