My wild child

So E. Just gets more and more acrobatic and daredevil each day. Yesterday I heard her giggling hilariously from down the hall, when I went to check on her she was jumping on our bed with the dog. How did this kid go from just learning to walk 3.5 months ago to running and jumping?

She also has been learning to stand on one foot as she lifts her second foot to proudly proclaim "shoe" to anyone that will listen. She has developed an absolute obsession with shoes, she will take all of our shoes; one pair at a time and move them from the entryway to the livingroom and then try them on.

Another new thing is putting her head between her legs and rocking like she’s about to do a summersault. I seriously worry this fearless little girl will really injure herself, but I can’t change her nature, so I just stand by while she tries to climb onto or into everything she can.

She is a water lover, will put her face into the water and blow bubbles. Lays on her tummy in the bath splashing up a storm with her kicky feet. We have started going to the YMCA pool and she loves it. Poor little thing lacks body padding though, the Y pool is not even cold but after 30 minutes in there she is shivering with purple lips, so I take her out and give her a warm rinse off in the change room.

She is getting about 7 teeth all at once right now, which is making her uncomfortable and sooky. Kinda enjoying the sookiness though, means I get lots of hugs and snuggles and that she is wanting to nurse more-then just the typical 1x a day we have been having for months.

Anyhow, we are really enjoying watching her so much these days, she is such a blast.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. She sounds like a fabulous little girl – a whirlwind and force to be reckoned with. How lovely!
    Hope the teething gets sorted soon, for both your sake 😉
