This week I've started talking a LOT too. I love to say, "alalalala" and "dadadadadadadadadadada" and combinations of the two. I've taken to talking as I roll and scooch all over the floor and especially when I can't quite get a toy I want. BOY, do I announce my frustration then! Mommy tried to capture my talking on video, but I get shy when the video camera is out!
I'm really really trying to crawl, but can't get the hang of going forward. It's much harder than it looks, but I'm sure at some point I'll get it. Ms. Colleen says I will, so it must be true!
Something really good that happened this week (at least Mommy thinks so) is that Daddy built me a fancy toy cabinet (thank you Ikea!) for the family room. My "stuff" was starting to take over after Christmas, and Mommy was getting a little frustrated by having no place to put it. So, Daddy built me my very own fancy toy cabinet! Here are pictures of it...closed and open. See how neat it is
I got to spend some time with Ms. Colleen this week. She showed Mommy how to work on "transitions" from sitting to laying down and vice versa. I impressed her with my ability to reach across my body and grab objects (in particular, an icee, which I LOOOOVE to chew!) and showed her how I like to stand up while holding Mommy's hands. Ms. Colleen suggested that I should get some shoes to try to stabilize my standing up as much as possible, so Mommy's got a mission next week! After therapy, Ms. Audrey spent lots of time with me this week working on transitions. I'm getting good at going from sitting to the ground, and sometimes it's actually planned! :) Also, after therapy this week, I did something REALLY amazing...I leaned up against the couch and STOOD BY MYSELF! My Daddy didn't even have his hands on me and I was SO excited I started to wiggle and tumble forward, but caught myself and was able to stand up there for several minutes. LOOK AT WHAT A BIG GIRL I AM!!!
|Look Ma! No Hands! :)|
In addition to talking, I've been laughing A LOT. Mommy is just SO FUNNY and she makes me giggle like nobody's business! Here's a video of me giggling and laughing at my Mommy.
I've been such a smiley girl. I love to play the "How big is Kaetlyn?" game too! Mommy and Daddy play it all the time and I just SMILE and LAUGH. It's really one of the coolest games EVER! Here I am playing it with Daddy...
Until next week when, hopefully, I'll report much better things with my belly...Ta Ta For Now! Have a great week :)
