// you are my little houdini // you have awesome posture when sitting // you went in a kiddie pool for the first time and liked it // you don't like getting your face splashed // you can find your soother when you wake up and put it back in your mouth // you enjoy hanging out with aunt marci // you still startle easily // you dont get so messy anymore when eating // you smile when I talk in funny voices // your neck has disappeared // you can roll over from your tummy to your back // you have a new laugh // you have the cutest little sneezes // you like to grab my nose // you don't like peas so much // you are not swaddled anymore // when you sleep // you wore a canada onesie on your first canada day // you figured out how to look in the mirror in your new book // you can push yourself backwards // you like avocado // you are getting more expressive // you sometimes scrunch up your nose and squint when you smile // you can push yourself up so well // you are super content // you rub your eyes when you are tired // you laugh at grandma a lot // you don't constantly move your feet and legs anymore // you have started going to bed earlier // you sleep all the way through until morning // you went to the calgary stampede for the first time // you love laughing at your crazy grandma // you sometimes get your leg stuck in the bars of your crib // you love sleeping with your blanket on your face // you grab at my face and hair a lot // you are super patient while I shop // you giggle when I tickle your feet // you always try to grab the remote or the keyboard or the cell phone // you understand the command "kick kick" while having a bath // you are our little kaiju (monster) and make the funniest noises // you often sleep with your legs and arms spread wide like a snow angel // you recently started sucking on two fingers // you are still my little pumpkin // you use a sleep sac at night // you became a messy eater again // you love sleeping on your side // you tooted while having a bath // you are eighteen pounds now // you are quite patient // you often lunge at the spoon while eating // you giggle much easier // you like corn // you are just okay with beets // you wore a skirt for the first time // you smack your lips // you are a light sleeper // you like to slap your legs // you loved your first time in the baby swing // you had a rice cracker for the first time // you are perfect //
