Bababee is fully toddling, running around as she pleases and enjoying her freedom.
I am, of course, very proud. And the things she does are amazing. But, it was easier when she stayed set where I put her.
She has learned how to open up the cabinets. She likes to pull out clothing.
And her favorite is to get up and turn off the TV while people are watching (and she learned how to push the button that can't be turned back on with the remote). She flashes a big proud smile at us, waits for one of us to get up to turn the TV back on... and then turns it back on herself.
Just 13 months, and she already is showing us who is boss.
Aw, so grown-up already!
I don't suppose you have any pictures?
One thing that would entertain sozlet for hours was just taking (er, hurling) books from a bookshelf. I'd put 'em back. She'd wreak destruction. I'd put 'em back. Etc.
I just made sure there were paperbacks and stuff on that shelf, nothing that would break my heart if it were destroyed.
Rather like a new kitten, huh? Cute as anything, get into everything, and instinctively know who's in charge.
Haha! Just remember, it doesn't last for ever. Just when I was able to start reasoning with my nephew, they got a puppy. This job will never end.
But, by age, hmmmm, well, before he was two, he was able to play on his own and understand most requests to not do something. Of course, understanding doesn't always mean obeying.
Yeah, this is an interesting stage. Fun, but taxing. I bet you're so proud of her. I don't know if it's good or bad but I don't really remember what I did at this stage. I think distraction worked a lot. Toy cell phones were a hit with both kids at this stage -- lots of buttons and pretend talking.
Exactly. We are the toddlers of the internet.
hehe, cute e_brown (you too, gus).
