Most predictable behavior: Zoralee twists herself around to get onto her belly and whines incessantly during every single dingle diaper change. She hates the changes so. She also twists herself onto her belly when we're nursing side-by-side lying down, maintaining her latch-on during the twist. I'd like to be on a glass table and see a photograph from below of that.
Most beloved activity: She pulls herself to a stand against every imaginable household object. Crawls mostly for getting someplace to stand. She even stands coming out of a dead sleep when she most needs to stay sleeping - stands up against something, all wobbly and fussy.
Newest trick: Does hand-offs from one object to another while standing. The funniest one I've seen was while she stood at the coffee table, she turned the top half of her body 180 degrees to grab the couch behind her. When she had it solidly, she turned the bottom half of her body so that she was fully facing the couch.
Most common injury: head bonks, due to newest trick.Newest attitude development: She now recognizes that when something off limits is taken from her, it is ME doing the taking, rather than the desired object just floating out of her life. She, in turn, gives me nasty faces.
But she's a woman of peace deep inside.
Favorite person: Grandma Rena. She has started bursting into tears when Grandma walks away. Here, she is having her hair gelled and measured by Grandma.
good times with Papa
