Eleanor makes us laugh constantly. It seems like each day she learns some new trick that cracks us up. She tries to copy almost every thing we do, and it always comes across so funny. Here is this mini version of"us" mimicking our actions. It often seems like she's mocking us.
-"Yawning." If you yawn, she responds by opening her mouth really wide and exhaling "Haaaaaah". Like you would to fog up a window in the car. I never noticed how much I yawned before until she started doing this each time I did. (In my defense, I am tired because SHE wakes up four times a night lately and wont go back to sleep without my help. So. Tired. Always. Trying to fix this.)
-She's learned to click and clock her tongue, and will stop in the middle of eating or jabbering to show you.
-She can blow kisses which is ADORABLE. (Sorry for the caps, but it really is.)
-She can do a fish sound too: "Bop, bop, bop."
-If you leave your feet out, she will tickle them with a high pitch "tcklklklklglgl" sound. It's from playing This Little Piggy. She will usually end it by biting your big toe.
-She also does this funny scrunch face whilst breathing quickly through her nose. Don't know where she learned it, or what she is copying, but we now do it back and forth with each other all day.
Here are the obligatory messy baby shots.
Crazed, messy baby shots it seems.
Getting her hair crusty, that's for sure.
What time is it? Bath thirty!
We were both on the couch about two feet from Eleanor.
Clayton comments that she is being awfully quiet.
We couldn't quite see her as we were reclining on the couch and
she was sitting on the floor right in front of our knees.
I lean forward to look and...
and about 17 in her fist.
All right, such adorableness will atone for any mess.
Both of these looked the same to begin with.
Her "after" version would be on the bottom.
P.S. The bottles unfortunately look a lot like beer bottles. The lady at the store even asked for my ID (Yikes! The very appearance of evil, yada, yada, yada. But also- so flattered to be ID'd!) before she realized they were just root beer. Not sure if it's worth buying them.
chocolate sauce and all eight types of soda.
P.S. We are SO using all of those wipes. We just shoved them right back into the container, carpet germs be darned.
