Maggie is becoming a little person with her own personality. She’s pretty bossy and demanding for someone that likes to play with tissue and empty boxes. It’s hard to remember sometimes that she’s just a baby.
Her first word “up” she learned about a month ago. She has since decided she doesn’t need to learn many more words. Instead she has mastered it and abuses it constantly to relay a number of commands. It means everything from, “pick me up,” to “I’m done with dinner,” and “give me that object that is just out of my arm’s reach.”
Maggie still refuses to crawl, but she can slowly scoot around on her butt to where she wants to go. Watching her you’d think she was immobile, but if you leave the room for a minute you’ll find her magically on the other side of the room. It looks like she might skip crawling and go straight to walking. She’s getting better at standing every day and is learning to pull herself up and move her feet under her to support her body.
Time is flying by so fast.
Don’t grow up too fast, baby!
