Emma has done so well lately, and has earned many compliments on her even temper and smiling response to people around her. One lady even teased, “She does cry, right?”
I was told twice today, though, not to expect all my children to be so easy, lol. Makes me a bit nervous about having more because… well, although Emma has been easier than I expected in ways, raising a baby is not easy at all!
Milestones and Quirks:
She’s at a very “grabby” stage – she wants to touch everything (and most likely eat it, too)! I have to make sure the floor is clear of things she shouldn’t have when I put her down because she’ll end up across the room somehow and she’ll be ripping it up, spitting up on it, eating it… you name it! And I don’t know how she manages to get across the room, I know she can’t crawl yet but she’s learned some ground maneuvers that would probably impress the marines. ;-)
She lifts both her arms up and gives me this longsuffering grimace when she wants to be picked up. I can’t resist, of course.
She’s becoming increasingly vocal and “talking” more.
She’s almost sitting up and almost crawling!
