Baby J is a silly, silly girl. She was cracking me up while I was trying to take her pictures this month. So many funny faces (as you'll note from the picture overload on this post).
One of Baby J's favorite things this month is to play peek-a-boo. We've been playing for months, but now she initiates it. If there's a blankie nearby, she'll pick it up, cover her head and then pull it down smiling. It is absolutely adorable! E and I will hide on the side of walls and peek out at her, which makes her giggle like crazy.
She also seems to be getting ready to dress herself (maybe she's trying to tell me she's done with the matching outfits? I hope not!). Any time she finds clothes, she picks them up and tries to put them over her head. She'll do the same thing with reusable bags. Apparently they make great hats.
Baby J is standing all by herself now. Every day you get more and more stable. I'm sure it won't be long until she tries her first steps (and then my life will get even busier!).
This one might be my favorite of the month, playing with her bison! Such a sweetie!
This month Baby J has been eating more table food with us. Some favorites are cheese, ham, bananas, peas and crackers. We'll give her a little bit of whatever we're eating to try. If she likes it, and she runs out she'll scream to let us know she needs more. If she doesn't like it, she throws it right on the floor. She's very opinionated.
Baby J is also starting to get pretty chatty. No real words yet, but lots of ma ma ma ma and da da da da. She clearly knows who we are, and lets us know she's looking for us.
I'm taking this silly face as a sign she was ready to be done. So hard to believe there's only 1 more round of pictures left!
