If there were ever a time for you to stop growing it would be now. You are as cute as ever and you are so much fun. There are so many updates, I’m not even sure where to start! You’re changing so fast!
You are all over the place now. Nothing is safe, you are into everything. You’ve quickly figured out how to open cabinets and drawers, and your favorite things to eat are paper and the smallest little things you can possibly find on the floor. You can crawl so quickly now and are developing your ornery grin – you’ll have it perfected before too long. You cruise around furniture with ease, and you’ve even started pushing around your walking toy. Sometimes you will let go with both hands for just a second and test out your balancing skills. They still need some work. Now if I do something you don’t like, you are very quick to let me know, but most of the time you are the happiest little girl I’ve ever met.
You’ve got five teeth now – two on top and three on bottom. Teething seems to be no big deal for you (so sweet of you to do that for mommy). You LOVE to eat. Anything that is on my plate must be taste tested by you before it’s gone, or you get upset! You’ll eat just about anything as long as it isn’t in baby food form. You’re still a big fan of nursing, though – it’s the only thing that can fix any one of your ails. We’re still working on the idea of a sippy cup, but you think it’s a great little toy to carry around with you. Speaking of toys…
Most kids get attached to a stuffed animal, a blanket maybe. But these days you are pretty attached to your domino. That’s right. Six dots on one side, eight on the other. (How’s that for proving she’s a Popp!?) You like to keep it halfway in your mouth while you crawl around and do your baby things. Once in a while it will disappear for a couple days, and then you find it and there it is in your mouth again.
You love your brothers. You think they are the funniest thing you’ve ever come across. Any time they walk in the room you squeal and laugh.
Now when your daddy gets home from work you get very excited and crawl over as fast as you can to welcome him home. This melts his heart. He’s in love with you sweet girl.
You say mama when you want me now – and I think you’re starting to figure out dada too. You make a ton of different sounds now – and you are quite the chatty kathy. When you meet new people it’s usually one of the first things they comment on. Apparently you’ve got a lot to say. You also like to clap your hands now, and you give the sweetest kisses (albeit their slobbery).
I love you baby girl. I love you more all the time. You love me too. I wish you were always going to be so happy to be with your mommy – but a time will come when I don’t know anything and you’d rather sneer at me than smile. I will love you still. You’re my sweet baby girl and there’s nothing I’d rather be than your mommy.
Love you, Love you, Love you,
