I have another update on what is going on in Skye’s world right about now.
*Those little wrinkles in her nose on the picture above when she smiles…
*Skye calls after Brooke multiple times a day now. When we were at church last week Skye was in the halls with Andrew (far away from the Sunday School class that I was in) and Brooke’s primary class was walking from one room to another. Andrew said when Skye saw Brooke she started screaming ROOKE and I could hear it from the Sunday School class I was in, ha. She is forming quite the bond with both Knox and Brooke.
*Two lefts do not make a left. Andrew and I are both left handed but Skye grabs everything with her right hand.
*Skye’s current schedule cycle: 3 days of complete independence followed by 1 day of velcro life to either Andrew or me. She wants to be glued to us!
*From another one of her velcro days.
*I am absolutely LOVING reading ROAR and I am learning so much from it. There is a chapter about pregnancy and I loved what she shared about how exercise helps the health of our babies if we are able to exercise during pregnancy.
Lauren said the other day, ‘My chiropractor has a theory that the more active you are during pregnancy, the more active baby will be when they are born/growing up because they are used to movement. Your comment about Skye being a busy baby made me think of that.” <— I bet this is true. Also, I think her busyness is why she sleeps so well at night (usually 13 hours straight)… because she is exhausted from moving all day (and maybe that is why I sleep so long each night too).
*This made Andrew and I laugh pretty hard because he is still learning;)
*Skye is currently the number one fan of KodiakCakes. She also loves giving hugs now and below she had grabbed my shoulder, pulled me in and put her head on my cheeks. She held me there for at least 10 seconds. I love that she is communicating with us more lately… and she just started crawling around the house saying UH-OH on repeat which is fun.
*Blankets to Skye are like running shoes to me.
*Skye has turned into a social butterfly (which is strange because just a few months ago she would not let us leave her with anyone but my mom). At our family get togethers she loves being in the center of everything and the other day my parents said they were leaving and got their coats and Skye BOOKED it over to them crawling high-speed to go say goodbye to them (or maybe she wanted to go home with them;).
*One of my friends has triplets (they are older now… she has twins too) and I wonder how in the world people can keep up with more than one at a time at this age… Superheroes, that is how.
*Getting rid of the bottle is going real well. SOS. We are tapering down slowly but surely though.
*Pointing is a common occurrence in her life right now and so is Brooke insisting on holding Skye. It’s always funny for me to see Brooke holding Skye because Skye is about 60% of Brooke’s height:)
*She has started to recognize what it means when we say no to something… either she will stop doing it or try to do it faster before we can get to her.
*Skye needs to share some of her leg strength with me. She goes from this position to standing up without using her hands about 200 times a day.
*She has recently really started loving stuffed animals and will give them hugs often.
*She took one step on 2/1 and hasn’t taken another step since then. I think she finally did the one step so we would stop bugging her about it and she is okay crawling until we try to make her do it again.
*We have a door that goes to our stairs and if it is left open Skye has a 6th sense about it and can sneaks so fast on over to them, stairs are her favorite.
*As you can tell from the pictures, she is VERY into Beretta.
*There is a lot of passion in that little body. Also, Skye’s new favorite food is Dole Whip at Disneyland… she went crazy for it.
*Her teeth are just popping out like crazy right now!
She is a happy little soul with a lot on her to-do list each day!
If you are a parent… what are your kiddos up to these days?
Anyone reading have twins or triplets? HOW DID YOU DO IT?
If you have a pet, how do they do with kids?
-I’m amazed at how patient Beretta is!
