Bits and Bobs

I had to buy Sonia a new pair of skinny jean leggings (aka "jeggings") because she destroyed the knees in her old ones while crawling. The new jeggings have pockets on the butt, fake pockets stitched on the front, and belt loops. Seriously, they are the cutest things I've ever seen.

Sonia's new favorite thing to do while I'm cooking is to run around with a plastic bowl and a whisk, pretending to mix up scrambled eggs.

Dancing is becoming an automatic response whenever Sosini hears any sort of music with a good beat to it.

Sosi does not enjoy having her hands dirty. If she has food on her hands, she uses the heels of her hands to pick up her sippy cup to drink.

Currently, Sonia can say: mama, tickle, ball, nose, car, meow, Bobo, down, baby, no, bee, and dada. She doesn't like to repeat words (for instance, when I ask, "Can you say 'cat'?", Sosi just looks at me)-- she'd much rather just say them when she feels like it.

This past week, she figured out how to get down the slide all by herself by treating it like going down the stairs (turning around and going down feet first on her belly). That same day, Sosini also wanted to sit on a big girl swing.....

....but she realized that she still fits better on a little girl swing.

Add another one-- I definitely heard a "hi" from her on one of the flip videos! Oooo! Oooo- and remember when you guys were here? Did she NOT say "peekaboo" that one time?

Oh yeah-- she has been saying HI! for the last week or so-- forgot that one! I still haven't heard her say peekaboo since that one time in TX in June, but I'm sure it will be coming soon.... That child loves a good game of peekaboo!
