Last night Shiao Jo attempted to pour her milk into her juice. Never mind that they were in sippy cups with straws. Anti-spill valves in place? Who cares? She lined one straw up to the other and tilted one cup, observing the point of contact.
Repeat for 1 minute. :)
WOOHOO! Shiao Jo took her first steps today!!!!! She walked about 5 steps into my arms about 3 times! We were all cheering for her and even she knew it was a big deal, hollering while she walked!
A couple days ago I finally whipped out a push toy we inherited from my cousin. Xiao Jo loves it and would holler every time she, literally ran with that thing (until she it the wall or something.)
It’s awesome at first but she runs with that thing so damn fast I pretty much keep my hands on her waist just in case. Grandma already wrapped some masking tape around the wheels (sticky side down) to add some resistance. Pfft, as if that worked. Try doing that for half a day. Cardio workout: Check.
I can’t wait ’til she’s old enough to get her one of these:
Plasma car / Rolling Coaster Car
I mean talk about being born in the wrong generation! One adult size please. If anything she can ride along size me in one of these:
Wheely bug by Prince Lionheard – Also awesome! I like the tiger one
Wheely Bug from Prince Lionheart
Shortly after arriving home from work today, Xiao Jo and I engaged in a competition of blowing raspberries* (She started it!) It was awesome and lasted a long time (probably 10 minutes.) My upper lip was numb from doing it so many times! It led me to believe she may be somewhat teething again as I never saw so much drool coming out of her for a couple of months now.
*For those of us unfamiliar with the term, “blowing raspberries,” (sometimes strawberry,) is when you poke your tongue out, pucker your lips.. now blow.
Xiao Jo has discovered how to open the dvd tray! The first time was by accident. On her second (or maybe 3rd) attempt she waited patiently for something to happen. Seconds go by and nothing (our player is a little slow)… she turns her attention away for just a moment and there! The dvd tray opens! It startles her so much she jerks her head up and back, “eeeeeehhh!”
She pushes the tray back in. Let the fun continue.
Today shiao jo was playing with the remote and pressed the numbers, which made the “source” jump from our cable to air, which had nothing, thus leaving her with a blue screen.
I then heard her utter out what sounded like “Uuh… Oooooohhh” and I realised that she had copied me! Whenever she did that before (infinite times) I would go “Uh oh!” (I have learned to never expect to sit through any tv shows or films without that happening.)
She handed me the remote, knowing I would get our cable back on.
Repeat for the next 3 minutes “Uuuh Ooooohh!” and all.
