Here is my update on our little girls development, as you can see she is running around and doesn’t really care to even look at my camera right now :)

One of my favorite things you’ve been doing this past month is answering questions, and what’s really great is that you aren’t saying no too much – only if you really mean it you will say “no way!”. But I love being able to say “Darby are you hungry?” or “are you ready for a nap” and the response be “yep!”

You love to “honk” peoples noses

You’re personality is really starting to show and we think you are gonna be shyer than your brother. At home you are a total ham but whenever we go to new places or you are meeting new people you get really quiet and look down. We were just in a crowded room last week of people you mostly know and you grabbed your snack and sat off to the side by yourself eating your snack. It really reminds me of myself and I love it because it makes me feel like you only ‘let in’ certain people and it’s an honor to be one of those people – I also hope that you keep this attitude in your teen years when it comes to boys!

You are getting much better at feeding yourself, using forks and spoons the proper way, it’s great because you only need a little bit of supervision.

You are learning all your body parts. You know your eyes, nose, ears, hair, mouth, teeth, tongue, chin, cheeks, belly, arms, fingers, legs, knees, feet, and toes.

You are still using sign language, although it seems to take a back seat since you’ve been talking so much. You sign and say all done, more, milk, juice, please, thank you, sorry and we’re working on the sign for help.

You still suck your index finger, and want your Aden & Anais blanket to sleep with.

We think your gonna be a little bit of a neat freak. After dinner you like to take a wet wipe and clean your high chair table and you have also mastered blowing your nose because you hate having a runny nose.

These last few days all of your “lateral incisors” are finally breaking in, they are the last teeth that we are waiting on.

It’s been such a joy to watch you grow and develop and we are so excited to see you become a big sister sometime in the next month or so!

I’ve decided to start a little feature here on the blog that I’m naming “you right now”. I’ve been giving you some updates on my little ones here on the blog but I’ve decided that sometimes I just can’t wait that long to tell you the cute and funny things they do. Feel free to take this inspiration to your own blog just link back here ;)

You love to make people laugh and as soon as you notice someone getting a kick out of you, you do whatever it is over and over again. Like making fish faces, you discovered that this face entertains people so now you do it all the time.

Your hair is beginning to get long enough to tickle the back of your neck. Usually during dinner time you notice this and shake your head back and forth, giggling the whole time!

You are adding an “ee-oo” sound to the end of your favorite words. “blankie-oo” “sippee-oo” “milkee-oo” “juicee-oo” it is so funny!

Your favorite song is the alphabet song although you are singing “A, B, C” over and over again the whole time!

You love to eat bananas but will only eat them like a monkey…if I take the skin off you refuse to eat it so I just hand them to you in the skin, I think it’s because you don’t like getting your hands dirty very much.

You love to dress up and still wear your Iron Man (see above) and Ninja costumes from last year.

You ask me almost everyday what my dream was last night and if I tell you I didn’t have one you sigh like your sad that I missed out. Your dreams usually involve you saving the world!

Magnets – you are obsessed and can be entertained for hours with them – it seems like you have an engineering mind.

eating lunch one day you said to me (pointing back and forth at your lunch) “fish fries, fish fries – you said fish and chips and you were wrong, these are fries mum, not chips!”

on a walk one day I said “if a car comes we’ll be toast!” you replied – “I’ll be like a toast?! Is the car really hot?!”
