These are the things this beauty is lovin' lately:
Standing & Walking: pretty much since Oakley was born she has loved being in the standing position. She pulls herself up to standing at any chance possible. If Oakley had the balance she would be walking around like CrAzY. She walks round while holding our hands, but once you start you just can't stop. She gets so cranky if we stop walking her around the house.
She has recently discovered that she can stand holding onto the couch and the step-stool in her room. Oakley wont pull herself up on them yet, she pulls herself up on us, then moves to them.
Spitting and sucking bottom lip: She has been looking like a little old lady lately when she sucks on her bottom lip. She will suck on it for awhile, and then just start spitting. It cracks me up and she just does it all day long. Just one more thing that adds drool to her clothes.
Crawling: This is just now starting to be ok with Oakley. She used to hate it, and have no interest in crawling. She is starting to realize that its ok and she can actually get somewhere with it. She does really good and moves really fast if we let her push against our hands. On her own though she isn't 100% there yet. She rocks back and forth and will kick her legs like crazy we are working on it though. I don't think it'll take long before she is all over it!
Clothes: This chunk is wearing 12 & 18 month clothes. most of her 12 month shirts are too small, but her pants depending on the type fit great. this girl is growing very very well! I'm betting by April she will be in 18-24 month clothes, so I've been starting to stock up on them while the sales have been happening. I just can't keep up with this girl!
Walks: With this beautiful weather lately, baby girl and I have really needed to get out of the house. These are the first times she has actually been able to sit in the stroller rather than in the carseat in it. Since the last time we used it was when she was just a few months old. We have some great walking partners that come with us. My friend has a little boy that was born the day after Oakley. We walk for about an hour and its nice to have adult time!
Emptying things: Oakley has officially hit the stage of loving to empty things. She will sit in the living room and empty her toy bin for like 30 min. She will also "help" with laundry by emptying all the clothes out of the laundry basket.
Mickey: This girl LOVES Mickey mouse. After breakfast while I get some dishes and cleaning done she will watch Mickey and as soon as she sees him on the Ipad, just gets a HUGE smile, and then is mesmerized the whole time.
