It's clear that these new skills are tiring her out. The minute I sit down with her cradled in my arms her eyes shut. She's still a little stuffy from her cold, so she's making these cute little garbled snort noises. I can tell she's so excited to play, but we need to keep a handle on it all because she is getting overwhelmed. One thing she is really enjoying is her new "magic trick." She can pass a toy from one hand to the other! You should hear the excited squeals while she does this. I wouldn't have thought much of this, but The Bump called it out and I can tell she's really enjoying it, so I guess it's a Big Baby Deal.
With all these new skills, I'm starting to feel like I have a mobile baby. Gone are the days of turning my back to throw in a load of laundry. I knew that the last few weeks were wonderful and I had a feeling this time would pass quickly into the next stage, so I'm glad I took notes about how sweet it all was :)
Happy Holidays Everyone!
