Michaela, who took her first long walking steps while in Puerto Iguazu in Argentina and really began walking in Mar del Plata, now prefers walking over crawling. Whereas before she might crawl for a little while if she fell, now she immediately stands up on her own and begins walking again. She also spends time looking at her many books, making sounds that seem to be like she's reading it. She's much more interested in seeing and interacting with other kids. Trips to the park and the zoo are as much about other kids as they are about the playground or animals. She's imitating nearly everything. The other day, she grabbed the broom and tried to sweep. She's also figured out how to climb up onto chairs, so the cat food and water bowl we placed on the table are no longer out of her reach. And she loves to walk outside, but she heads straight for the street, so we keep close tabs on her.
|Look! I'm the star of the show!||A new toy - I know it is because this isn't my car seat.|
|This step is a little tall, but I can still climb up.||Oops - I shouldn't have pushed that kid.|
|I can be sooooo cute when I dress up.||My first baseball game...but I want to climb the stairs.|
|Not sure about my Uncle Jason - he's awefully happy.||I conquered the slide - all by myself.|
