Baby Log: 1 Year and 49 Weeks Old

Sunday, July 31, 2011

As Marlie's 2nd birthday creeps closer, I am letting the realization that she's no longer a baby slowly sink it. Things are going to change so much! Stuff she did as a baby, like spit bubbles, will NO LONGER be cute. No one is going to say, "aw, look at her picking her widdle nose!" 

So this week I have been working hard on teaching manners. So far she is saying "please" and "thank you" with some consistency. It is music to my ears when I give her something and she says thank you! She has also mastered covering up her mouth when she sneezes or coughs. Her daddy taught her to ask for help instead of stomping around frustrated. We are also getting more consistent with the discipline. It works wonders when she is getting the same message from both parents as opposed to running to one of us when the other says no. Damon started counting to five as a "warning." The other day he reached #4 and she shouted "5!" She is a total joker. At least she is learning to count. 

This week I have noticed that she is having a lot more falls and knocking her head into walls more often. I lost count how many times I have watched her run, trip and face plant onto the floor. She falls hard too. I'm surprised she hasn't knocked out a tooth. Is getting clumsier a growing pain at this age?

Manners are awesome! Get ur manners on marlie! Lol. Jas has mastered, please, thank you and excuse me. She hasn't gotten the cough sneeze thing down though lol.

Jas is extra clumsy. Its mostly because she doesn't pay attention to what she's doing. Nosey! Lol hopefully they both grow out of that very soon.

I do the counting thing too. Jas wouldn't dare say 5 after I say 4. WOULD. NOT. DARE lol. She knows the counting is serious business.

It is so bittersweet to see them grow! It means I will have your sanity again, but I miss the baby stage.
