I mean, look at this little monkey:
hamming it up for the camera
showing off her Kung Fu moves
Reading Love You Through and Through in her special Valentine's Day outfit from Granny
It's amazing to see all of the things she "gets" now. Excellent example: The other day I plopped her in her crib so I could have five minutes to do my hair, and from the bathroom I heard a BASH BASH BASH coming from her room. I crept in and found her lifting up her "soothing music player" and bashing it against the bars of her crib:
And when I leaned over her and ahemed, she flipped over and immediately gave me this innocent look:
As my sister put it, we're in big trouble.
She also knows that when she makes certain faces, I laugh, so she makes those faces and gets excited when I laugh, then makes the face again!
I know, it seems so simple, but she is purposefully doing something to make me laugh. I love it!
And, I swear, she knows how to do "cute" poses now.
She used to only put her fingers in her mouth when she wanted to chew them, but now she will put one to her mouth and hold it there without chewing it ... she is totally pulling off the "aren't I darling?" look, isn't she?
Who am I kidding? She pulls off EVERY look. I love my little almost-toddler.
