I am also feeding myself now. I know Mom was a bit worried about this and turns out I really have been able to do it all along. But let me ask you: if someone would sit in front of you, talk to you, feed you without you having to lift a finger AND you didn't even get any on your hands and face....well, I think you too might act like you were incapable. I'm no dummy.
This also goes for talking. I can say "Mama" "Dada" "Uh-Oh" and my new one "hey-da" (heather)....however, people are always asking my to say these things on command. Do I look like a show pony? I have decided that I have a mind of my own and would like to use it on occasion. Turns out I have lots of opinions about things! For example:
- I LOVE Dogs....except the neighbors have one that is more like a small horse so I am a little skeptical
- I hate tomatos...don't like em..tried them a few times and as of now it's a no-go.
- I love bath time
- I really love Nick Jr but have discovered the cooking channel...move over Bobby Flay!
- I ADORE GanGan...she is hands down the best babysitter ever.
- I DO NOT like being left in a room by myself....
- I LOVE my airplane and my jumper
I also am about to walk...I have to have a little help with my balance right now but I am almost there. I have grown my very own top two teeth! They look really good even if I do say so myself. However, I am not so fond of this whole teeth growing thing..it hurts and takes me forever to do it!
I am weighing in at an impressive 23 lbs and 30 inches tall. I wear 12-18 month clothes and am still trying to learn baby sign language. Don't really know why I have to when pointing and grunting is actually pretty effective...however, Mom is NOT a fan of it.
I did get disciplined the other day for the first time and quite frankly, I will be just fine if THAT never happens again. I kept sticking my hand in the propeller of my airplane and it make a really cool loud noise. Mom told me not to. I chose to disagree with her on this because well, it's MY plane. This logic go me nowhere. I did it again to a tragic result. She had the AUDACITY to swat me on the hand!!! Yes, I too was appalled and quite frankly hurt by this. Did I pout a little about this? Heck yes. Don't judge, I'm not even one yet!
All in all, the first 11 months of my life have been pretty smooth sailing. I know it doesn't hurt that I'm so adorable and easy going. Mom and Dad are pretty much obsessed me and please, don't even get me started on the grandparents!
