Another new thing she JUST learned this week is the little "hermit crab" move I like to call it. She is laying on her belly, then she backs herself up into a sitting position. She did this on the floor a few times, now her Pack N Play and crib. She's still trying to master crawling. Kiley will be on all fours and she just kind of "revs" up like a car. It's like she's going to move, but she just rocks back and fourth on her hands and knees. She's SOOOOOO close though. We think it's just a matter of time.
I got to hear her laugh a true, belly laugh. Not just a giggle, but a hardy, gut, hysterical laugh. She did it while watching one of her Baby Einstein videos. She busted out in this silly laugh whenever this one puppet would introduce a new instrument or pretend to play an instrument. This was the best thing ever! I actually was thinking and got it on video. If I can manage to figure out how to upload it, I will share.
And Miss Kiley loves to blow "raspberries" at the most convenient times. Typically in church and when it is completely silent! Or, when we are out and about, in a store shopping or at Panera. It's cute though. Everyone laughs. She recently this week was sitting on my lap, leaned over and did a raspberry on my arm. It not only sounded cute this time, but it felt cute too! She just turned and looked at me like, "How'd you like that mama?" Even though she won't say my name yet. We're working on it though! Both verbally and with sign language. Usually, I'll say "mama", "mama" and she answer back with a "dada", "dada". That's o.k. though, she's talking and that's a good thing!
Here are some recent pics and a Fourth of July little scrapbook of photos on Smilebox. Enjoy!
|I LOVE Cheerios! (and holding a spoon at the same time!) It makes me feel like I'm a big girl!|
|See, I can do it by myself!|
|Ha ha, I don't need to take a nap! I can sit up and play and talk to myself instead! BTW... I see you mom taking a picture of me!|
