You walk in full force these days (beginning about 2 weeks ago). I had envisioned in my mind my blog post entitled "Caught in the Act"- because this is exactly how the whole thing happened. You were taking a few steps here and there at the time, when all of the sudden one day Dad looked in Luthien's room where you were playing and noticed you practicing your walking all over the place. Now, you want to walk ALL the time, except at the most inopportune times, where you cling at my legs and whine for me to hold you (when I'm cooking, cleaning, trying to get anything accomplished of course)!
Back to the title of my aforementioned [missing] blog post....as the first steps are one of every mother's favorite milestones, I was excited to write to you about the event. Our camera, however, has decided not to cooperate with my plan, because it broke right at that time and we cannot get anything new right now :(
Words: up, that, this, open, out, off, apple, doggy, daddy, mama, uh-oh, no (your favorite, which you constantly say with an extreme nasal resonance), ball (okay maybe this one is your favorite), uh-huh, nana, banana (similar pronunciations), cat (still working on that velar sound but it's sort of there)...a few more that I can't think of right now.
Okay, gotta go try to sleep again. More soon-
