Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Little’s new skills

Thoughtfully penned on October 19th, 2007 and generally concerning E

My baby girl is growing and learning every day. It’s hard to believe how much she has changed in just the last few months. A couple of recent activities from her growing repertoire of skills…

~Yesterday evening she was playing in the dining area (we have an eat-in kitchen) while Matt and I finished eating dinner. We have a chest against the wall behind the table and beside the chest was a gallon can of paint (eventually we’ll get around to using it in the laundry room). I looked up from taking a bite of dinner to see Little climbing up to stand on the paint can. She had decided to use it as a step-stool to reach something she wanted on top of the chest.

~This morning she wanted some dried fruit to eat. I told her it would take a minute to get her snack because we needed a bowl. I preceded to reach into the cabinet to get a snack cup, and when I turned around Little had opened the Tupperware drawer and retrieved one of her small bowls. She was standing there sweetly, holding out her bowl for me to pour her fruit into it.

~And falling into the “makes me laugh” category – a couple of weeks ago she was standing near the baby-gate at the hallway leaned over where her head touched the ground, reaching backward between her legs to grab the gate bars, and shaking the gate.  I wish I had a picture, but, unfortunately, I missed it; so all I have to go on is the description Matt gave me.

You never know what that little girl is going to do next, but it sure is fun to see.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. I loved that age with Bubbie! He still cracks me up with him learning new things, but not in the same way! Now its cracking you up with telling you stories and wondering what he’ll say to embarrass you! :) I can’t wait to see her again! She’ll be all grown up by then!

  2. Oh, how very precious! I have been having Emmy attacks lately-don’t know what Pops would say about taking a trip to Memphis!

  3. So cute! This age is great fun!

  4. So very sweet! It’s amazing to see them blossom into little people!
