Life is so busy at the moment that I didn’t have a chance to post on the 25th about Audrey’s 16-month birthday. At least it’s still the right month!
Audrey (a.k.a. Little Love, Sweet, Sweetness, Pumpkin Head, and Miss Cutie Pie Bohlin) is quite the explorer these days. She fluctuates between roaming around the house room to room and sitting and concentrating on one particular toy/activity. (For one week straight she only played with one of her sorting toys, until she mastered every shape).
She’s on the cusp of running (heaven help us) and has a few other intense interests at the moment:
Buckles. On the high chair, car seat, bike helmet, changing table, baby carrier, stroller, other kids’ strollers — the girl can’t get enough.
Hats. Oh, no, not for her to wear — for everyone else around her to wear. We keep our baseball hats within easy reach these days. Within minutes of waking up/seeing one of us, she begins frantically slapping her head and pointing to the table. “Undressed” heads are uncool, I guess.
Climbing. Yesterday she climbed into this teeter-totter by herself for the first time! But usually climbing means getting onto our dining chairs, pointing at the computer, and saying “La la” repeatedly (her request for “Elmo’s Song,” which she gets to see in desperate moments).
I could go on and on — about her growing vocabulary, giggles at being tickled, bouncy dancing, immediate tears when told “no,” and all of the other small moments that fill our days — but I won’t. Suffice to say, life with sixteen-month-old Audrey is anything but dull!
