Annalise at fourteen months
She's gotten another new tooth, and that might also help explain her improvement in disposition.
She's getting smarter, and I don't know how much I like that. Every afternoon after their naps, I give them both cups of milk. As Delaney's been accustomed to getting a squirt of Hershey's syrup in hers, I give it to her. But I am trying not to put the Hershey's in Annie's, thinking she won't know what she's missing, and she'll appreciate the milk by itself. She does drink her milk, and she appears to like it. But the second she sees Delaney's cup on the floor unattended, she grabs it up and drinks it. She knows there's something better in Delaney's cup. And now she's getting a taste for chocolate milk too. Oh well.
She's still nursing, just right after she gets up in the morning, and right before going to bed at night. I think she'll probably wean in the next month or two.
She is getting to be so playful. She'll grab my hands so I'll play 'ring around the rosy.' She tries to fall down right away. When I sing 'itsy bitsy spider', she puts her fingers together to make a spider. She pushes Delaney around on her tricycle. She loves balloons. Every morning when I take her downstairs and Delaney's birthday balloon is still hanging there, she points and tries to say the word. "Boo." She dances around in circles and laughs when Delaney and I sing the ABCs. She plays more and more with her daddy too. She stands at the door just as excited as Delaney is, when he gets home. "We wore Mama out a long time ago, now it's Daddy's turn!"
