Tonight, like every night, I asked Izzy if she was tired. She usually looks at me and blinks, then utters a grunt. To the uninitiated this grunt is probably unintellegible, but I know it means yes.
Tonight when I asked Izzy if she was tired, she didn’t grunt. Instead she said, “yeah.” Then she pointed to the light and said, “off.” When I got up to turn it off, she waved and said, “bye bye.”
My baby is growing up!
This morning after I changed Isadora’s diaper, I clapped her feet together and said yay; she said yay too–her second word. After breakfast we took a walk down to Macys to use our 25% off coupon. Mitch and I both needed socks and I also needed some new work clothes. I scored four new dresses that will be great for work. Izzy didn’t nap at all, but she was being incrediby patient with me while trying on clothes and friendly with everyone who said hello to her. We went up to the fourth floor and sat at Starbucks so we could have a nibble. The poor thing feel asleep as I spooned purred apples and apricots into her mouth. I packed her up and we headed home. I tried to transfer her to her crib, but was unsuccessful. She woke up and wouldn’t go back to sleep so I set he on the floor and she went about her business to play. I was working on the painting for her room and when I peaked in to see what she was up to. I found her standing up and playing with the buttons on her shopping cart. The little critter figured out how to go from laying on her belly to sitting to standing today! We’ve had a few tears today because she’s tipped over or the thing she was leaning against shifted from her weight and scared her. It’s been an exciting day! I’m so glad she had these milestones on the weekend while I was home with her. I was so worried I was going to miss out on everything because of work. It turns out I’ve been right here for the big ones.
