Squirms is officially a troublemaker. At daycare, they often lose track of her because she’s hidden herself underneath one of the cribs. Here at home, we’ve had to put up baby gates to keep her out of the kitchen and from going down the basement stairs – the cats need to be able to get down there and this was far easier than installing a cat door and rehanging the actual door which doesn’t close properly.
She is getting into everything, wanting especially to play with power cords and straps to things.
She still plays happily by herself, though is wanting a bit more attention than before. You feel like a million bucks when she crawls to you across the floor or from someone else to get to you. She’s also reaching out when she wants to be picked up. She got a new toy this week – one of those fabric books with different textures that crinkles when you touch parts of it.
On the eating front, she can now – if she’s in her carseat or at least partially lying down elsewhere – feed herself her bottle. Other than first thing in the morning, she basically insists on doing so herself.
And I have no video to prove it, but she’s justttt starting to take steps when you hold onto her hands and sort of force her to move forward by leaning her forward. She’s still got quite a ways to go but it’s obvious she’s ready to really be on the move.
