Its a Great Big World Out There Little Girl

Saturday afternoon, Sophia was standing on the floor at the bottom of the stairs concentrating really hard. You could almost see her thinking,"There has got to be a trick to this?" The girl definitely achieves what she sets her mind to--a couple of minutes later she had a huge smile on her face because she was standing ON the bottom step!

Now the child-proofing has begun in earnest. Starting with learning the word No! I wouldn't force the issue if it wasn't SO obvious that she understands. She gets praised when she obeys, but sometimes its more fun when Mommy says NO. In fact, she really likes the little game we play. Laughing, as she crawls towards the hanging chord from the ironing board, wondering how close she'll get this time before Mama picks her up and tries to distract her. I've child-proofed much of our house so this was all new to her and must have been enticing b/c she tried to come at it several times and from three separate directions, thinking maybe this time Mama won't say no? You really realize how smart your child is when she's doing something she's not supposed to. . .It's amazing! Posted by Picasa

That last sentence is SO true! Jack's genius :) is most apparent when he's being naughty...or when he's trying to figure out how to outsmart us! I can't believe Sophia is standing all by herself...seems like just yesterday we were at your shower when she was little, little. Such a munchkin now!!
