I wasn’t really planning on blogging, but Vivi Rose was so cute today she leaves me no choice 🙂
Firstly, she said bye-bye to her daddy when he left for work after lunch, accompanied by a wave. Three times she said it.
Then she said it to me later, when I did a pretend departure. And she said it to her grandparents when they left after their visit this evening. And called out an extra “Bye” after them as they went out the door 🙂
She has also been saying num-num when she is eating but only if it something she likes. She’s been doing that for a couple of months.
Then there’s been plenty of ‘mama’s’. Not sure if she knows that’s me, lol. I do get a lot of them directed at me.
Lately there have been some ‘baba’s and ‘dada’s too.
Oh, and she has started making a beautiful, guttural ‘g’ sound, which is directed squarely at any ‘lig’ (light).
So not exactly sure which classifies as her first word, but they seem to be coming thick and fast.
Cute thing that happened today, I was feeding her her bottle and we were listening to Baby Genius’ 100 favourite children’s songs. So she started to clap (she’s big on clapping, for the last month or so) but the bottle was in the way! 🙂
She loves msuic, and clapping to it. Has quite a nice sense of rythym, too.
Also loves her books. Almost as much as TV 😛 The latter is limited, but she loves Baby Genius and Barney. One of those things I vowed my baby wouldn’t do!
Today, when daddy got home for lunch, she was in her walking ring. He opened up the back door for the dogs to go out, and madam followed in their wake. (Heavily supervised by us). She navigated the doorstep and the step off the little stoep with utter confidence (thank heavens for a very stable walking ring!) and took off on the paving with squeals of delight. Her and I took turns smelling the potted roses, me making sure she didn’t reach for a thorny branch. I want to relocate the potted roses for the Winter so that she has more space to run in her walker.
All in all, a very fun day:-)
