I'm a big girl now

Miss Amaya is a jolly soul who is quick with her smiles and quite attentive with her big blue eyes. It is not unusual to hear her giggling several times throughout the day. But, I have to tell you, this girl is a weed. A cute weed like a dandelion or buttercup, but a weed nonetheless. We can't get over how long the child is. It's crazy. Amaya herself is quite certain that we have grossly miscalculated her true age of 3 months as she is more inclined to believe that she is at least 6 months old. She tries to convince us of her maturity by demanding to stand up all of the time. If she's lying down, she tries to crawl away. Unless she's on her playmat, then she pushes, pulls and bats at all of the dangling toys. She's even decided that she's getting too old for the pacifier as her sucking apparatus of choice is now her own little fists. She slobbers on them so much that they're chapped from the abuse.

To further prove her advanced intellect, little bean is pursuing a degree in big brother studies. She'll stare at him intensely and then start waving her arms in the air while cooing for his attention. You can tell that she wants to do everything he does and be just like him. Unlike her older sibling though, she is still agreeable to my picking her clothes out for her. And didn't I do a good job?

    You did a great job picking our her clothes Laura!! We can't wait to see her tomorrow! Sorry Aiden won't be there to coo and crawl along with her but sometimes it's easier that way. Can't give the hubby too much of a break from the children, ha!

  2. Bummer that her boyfriend won't be joining us, but I know that dragging two kids around everywhere is a bit of a challenge!
