stand by me.

October 21, 2009

wow. i’ve really been neglectful lately. perhaps it’s because the only time i actually have to blog is late at night and these days, i’ve been popping a bag of popcorn, pouring a glass of chardonnay, and watching my dvr’d shows literally every night after putting H down. she has been straight up wearing me out lately. she now has 4 teeth on the top and i think more are on their way with all the drooling and random crying fits. she is getting super clingy (i was wondering when that separation anxiety would kick in) and at least pretending to show an interest in possibly walking sometime before her 15th birthday.

the first thing people ask after i tell them she is almost a year old is “is she walking yet?” and when i answer no, then it’s “that’s ok, she’ll get it”. right. i know. don’t feel sorry for my kid. there’s nothing wrong with her, but thanks. i’m happy she isn’t walking yet. have you seen babies that walk? their fast! and they hurt themselves. and yeah – i’m not even ready to have a kid that walks. i’m having a hard enough time grasping that my child is almost a year old without her literally walking away from me. why the rush people? why?

today as i sat cross legged on the floor, she crawled over to me, used me to stand herself up and then let go. she stood there for like 20 seconds. i saw her tiny toes digging into the carpet when she teetered forward and them let go as she teetered back. balancing. when she fell down, she climbed up and did it again. i love it when she learns something new and then it becomes “her thing”. so by the time Scot walks in the door, i can be like “show daddy what you learned today” and she does it. crazy bambino.

and then there is this sillyness. her other new favorite thing: trying to do a headstand. she laughs like it’s the funniest thing ever. i personally do not like the feeling of all my blood rushing to my head, but she seems to thoroughly enjoy it.

    It’s so amazing how fast she learns things! And it’s crazy to see her standing on her own. So cute!
