I know my posting is erratic at best…and maybe I’ll get some images up one of these days. But so that I can keep this record going I thought I’d just post little tidbits about what Fi is doing these days.
We feel like she’s just about to explode in the language department…she has several words (including “booger” and “cool” while i was in germany) but recently her babbling has gotten so conversation like that you almost think she’s really saying something to you and it take a minute to realize she isn’t using real words.
She RUNS everywhere … and to this day is never still. She LOVES her yellow blankie and carries it everywhere with her, often dragging it behind just like Linus in Snoopy.
Every night when we get home the first thing she wants to do is go play “boom” which is a game that her and her dad made up. We go in and get on the bed and take turns pushing each other down or tossing her and flipping her yelling “BOOM!” as we go….they’ve now added “BAP” which is when you hit each other with pillows. She is truly her daddy’s girl.
She is crazy about LO! LO! (lotion) and loves to squirt it and rub it on her face and neck….and usually sneaks a mouthful too. Really fi? does it taste that good?
I’d think she was going to be a girlie girl because she loves lotion and polish and jewelry. She has her own “neck neck” which is a necklace and constantly is trying to dress herself…once she realizes she can’t get something over her head she holds onto it with her chin and walks around as if she’s wearing it. I said “I’d think” because more then once she’s woken up in the night and called out for “dirt dirt” which she loves to dig in – and – put down her pants and into her shoes.
If I didn’t know it wasn’t possible I’d be sure she’s going to turn into a giant orange organic cheese cracker that looks like big bird by the amount of them she can eat in a day.
“Do Do” (zoe) is her best friend…though it’s still not mutual, and she can waste away many hours pestering her like a good little sister should.
She’s very smart and will spend several minutes trying to figure things out. She can buckle herself into just about any harness system now if given enough time (but thank god she can’t unbuckle yet!) and how she knows this i don’t know but if you catch her about to do something she’s not supposed to do she will give you the biggest sweetest smile you’ve ever seen…swing back and forth very coy like….wave and save hi! hi!.
But best of all she loves giving kisses and hugs and at night when I’m rocking her before bed if i stop singing she’ll pick up and after I lay her down in her bed we can still here her singing (and scolding an occasional misbehaving stuffed animal “no! no!” ) herself to sleep.
