Ellery has got several new things right now. They are all exciting for me, but I guess the most exciting is that she's almost crawling. She's gotten to the point where she can get up on her knees and rock back and forth. I hear that it's only a matter of time until they are actually going somewhere from that point. But usually after a few rocks she gets frustrated and throws herself onto the floor and starts licking the carpet. My child is a licker- and a growler. She acts like she's part dog or something. And I've turned into a total germaphobe since having her so anytime she starts with the licking, I get so freaked out, it's not even funny.
Ellery's next new thing will probably be much debated since she's only 7 months old, but I swear that she's saying "Mama". I don't mean like jabbering either, she does do that and I hear stuff like "mamamamampppppbbbbbabababa" along with a lot of spitting, but this seems way more directed at me. If I walk through the room I hear "Mama! Mama!" And she says it as she's reaching for me. So if she doesn't realize what she's saying that's an awful big coincidence.
More new things- dancing, with help of course, but she's definitely going to be a music lover. We get to hear lots of squeals and see lots of bouncing when music comes on. Kissing- oh man, I don't know if she's kissing or trying to eat my head! No, I know that she's kissing but she will grab me by my hair and make an "Ahhhh" noise and plant one right on my head. It's so cute and funny. I also think that it's pretty cool that most of the time when I say "Gimme a kiss" that she'll do it. Not sleeping- this is not a good one. She used to go to bed really early and sleep like 12 hours and then take a few naps during the day. Lately she's been staying up until 1 am or later, waking up early in the morning and then only taking one nap a day. I'm exhausted. Especially considering I'm not a good sleeper to begin with. So many bloggings may be done with RocknrollmcBaby right here in my lap.
So excuse any typos. Lol.
