Last weekend, Hazel celebrated her 444th day of life.
In honor of her, I thought I'd record some of her milestones and personality blossoms from the past couple of months during my blogging inactivity.
She has the typical "dada" and "mama" down, and lately has been saying "uh-oh" when anything drops to the floor. (I think she often drops things on purpose, just so she can say it :D) She also says "ah-duh" for "all done!" when she's done eating or needs help getting down from somewhere. I'm pretty sure she calls herself "dah-dah", which makes sense if you know her real name :)
Before her nap, when I'm putting her in her sleep-sac, I usually have a little tickle session and say "tickle tickle tickle" while I'm doing it. When I stop she'll grin and say "ti-ti-ti", asking for more :)
She is, much like The Frog, fascinated by lights and loves trying to flick the switches on and off. She'll often point at lights around the house and say, "la!"
She is very conscious of things her sibling receive, or get to do, that she does not get to partake of and makes it very clear that she is upset about it! Lately, she gets annoyed if I cut her food in smaller pieces than theirs. One time, we all had leftovers for lunch- she and I had pasta and the other kids had soup. She was really upset that she didn't get the same as them, even though she ate the pasta happily the night before with everyone.
I think she might be trying to go from 2 naps to 1, but her wake-up time has been very irregular, so I can't quite make the switch yet.
We sure adore this little chipmunk! Every night, during family prayer, we go around the circle and all say something we're thankful for (to add to our prayer) and most nights, one or both of them says they are thankful for Hazel. She is a little ray of sunshine in our family and I couldn't imagine life without her!!
