Plain and simple. Tonight while I was making dinner she ran into the kitchen, stopped, and asked, "Mama, whatcha making?" I couldn't believe it. I don't know why this is so shocking to me, but it is. This is something a big kid says, not my little baby!
It was so hot again today that DH was in the shower by 7:15 and I needed one too. I took DD in with me and when we were done we just stayed upstairs. All three of us laid on the bed in our room and DD was downright bossy. "You, close your eyes. You too, daddo." But also, she does not stop moving. I was getting that anxious feeling as she was climbing all over us and the bed. She couldn't settle down for even half a second. The good news is that she didn't make a peep tonight when we put her to bed. Normally there's about 30 minutes of crying and jabbering.
