The kid is really funny now. Lots of words and attempts at conversation. My dad said that he told Addy to answer every question with “no” and I thought he was kidding, but that’s really what she is doing. Sometimes it will be like “Addy do you want juice?” “NOOOO! <with furious headshaking, yet extended arms for juice>”. It’s maddening. It’s hilarious.
In addition to the refusals, Addy is also learning her body parts (eyes, nose, mouth, hair, tummy). And she’s working on her animals. She knew what dogs were but now she knows they go “woof woof woof”. After a few viewings of Rio, she’s also learned what birds are. So now she’s excited to watch Rio, which is a cast of birds and features a dog. Yay. Also gives us something new to watch besides Despicable Me, and Megamind.
We seem to be over the molar teething issues, but have graduated to some allergy problems. Nothing bad, and not surprising since I keep Claritin in the house at all times, but I wasn’t sure to do for Addy. The nurse suggested a little Benadryl, some honey, elevating her head, and the humidifier. Easy enough, plus we all get to sleep through the night again. Win win! I just don’t know what to do during the day when she gets runny nose and eyes. I’ll have to ask about something non-drowsy at her next checkup.
Also, we’ve seem to have gotten over separation anxiety. No more meltdowns when Brownlee drops her off in the morning for daycare. She actually waves bye bye! If one of us leaves the house she doesn’t have a tremendous breakdown. She’s just kinda like “see you later, I got Rio to watch”.
Woo! So it’s generally been fun around here. Except for the incessant “no’s”. I’m almost wishing that she learns more words soon so we can have better communication. Pointing and yelling “no” does not help mommy at all. And in case you haven’t seen her bubble blowing in action here’s the video:
And the monthly sheet.
