Project BG2, Week 42 – Nothing Can Hold Me Back

December 22, 2011 Project BG2 9

We’re rounding out Week 42 in BG2 land and I’m happy to say she’s finally back home with me. Yay! And let me tell you, this girl has changed so much!

You can’t keep this girl down anymore. Once she’s on the floor, she’s off! She crawls like a champ nowadays and will head right towards anything that looks like it might taste yummy in her mouth, haha. She’s also taken to pulling herself up wherever she gets the chance, which will often scare us because she could so easily fall down on our wood floors. But she’s smart, for the most part, and learns quickly. If she uses our coffee table, she’ll quickly move her head back to avoid hitting it against the table or she’ll slowly ease herself back down whenever she wants to crawl somewhere else. She’s also traveling everywhere, holding onto tables and chairs and she’s even stood by herself a few times! So amazing how quickly this girl is learning and growing.

We’re beginning to see her understand us, too. She’s known her name for awhile, and will turn her head to whoever is calling her. But now she’s starting to pick up on the word “NO!” and will often look at you to see if it’s okay to do something, even if she’ll end up doing it anyways, haha. Grandma has also taught her how to do a “silly face” and whenever she says “silly face” BG2 will make the face and get a nice laugh and round of joy, squeals, and applause from everyone. She obviously thinks it’s a game and that she’s doing something right, which is kind of cute.

We recently started her on congee, kind of like rice soup, in addition to her Asian baby food, which she loves. She really loves any kind of food beside formula, especially Cheetos. It’s funny to watch her eat it because she’ll eat it to the part her hand is holding and try to eat some more, unsuccessfully, and then switch to her other hand where we’ve placed another Cheeto.

Oh, and she’s talking more and starting to say real words. She actually says “Mama” now and associates that with me, of course, often with a whine or plea for me to pick her up (spoiled baby). It’s so cute to hear her talk and babble. I love it! I don’t know if I want to count that as her first word just yet. I’ll let you know.

      Yes! I can’t believe she’ll be 1 in a couple months! So stressed over planning this birthday party, haha.

    Gotta LOVE the baby legs…. the best part of a baby! Beautiful girls you have… and my daughter didn’t like tummy either.

    I don’t see any recipes, so I’m guessing that means you don’t ever blog recipes! We’re always interested in trying new Vietnamese recipes. I’m half-Vietnamese and we adopted our son from Vietnam in 2008. Any good Vietnamese cookbooks we should check out?

    Happy SITS day!!!

      Oh yay! I love “meeting” moms with kids the same age because there aren’t a lot of my friends with kids. Yes, they’re quite a handful at this age, although super fun!

      Oh, believe me, there are entirely way too many pics of this little one. I knew I wanted to do a 365 project for her, but I always end up taking like 10 pics in the same day. She knows the camera all too well, haha.
