She is starting to discover that she can reach out a touch a toy, and loves to smile back at us when we smile at her. She's such a nosy little social butterfly... she will turn to look at us when we're talking, and loves to be in a room full of people, right in the middle of the action. Another specific personality trait we're seeing is her strong temper! Unfortunately, she got a double dose of temper and impatience from both Matt and I (or as Matt likes to say, she must have gotten her temper from me, because he still has his!). She also hates her car seat and will scream half the time she is in it. The minute those straps click, she loses it! She also dislikes diaper changes and getting dried off after a bath.
(these two pictures are a little older, as you can tell from the Christmas bib!)We borrowed a bouncy seat from Aunt Alisa and Uncle Jason, and she loves it! She concentrates so hard that sometimes her eyes cross, and it's awesome to see her realize that she can make the toys move. Her favorite is the blue and yellow little giraffe, and I love to see her excitement in trying to smack it make it rattle. As any parent knows, any toy that entertains a baby for 15-20 peaceful moments are a lifesaver, so thank you Jason, Alisa, and Evan for sharing with us! We can't wait to give it back to you, oh I don't know... in June!
