Okay, so this week we have started playing along with ‘patty cake’. Finally. Today she ‘patted’ and ‘rolled’ and I swear to God she said ‘roll it’, but I couldn’t get her to repeat it.
Tomorrow? Her, me and the itsy bitsy spider. It’s on!
Peek a boo has been her mainstay. She finally figured out to cover ‘her’ face and has taken to walking around hiding her face in a blanket. Which leads to falling over a lot.
Today she had 2 near misses and several hits. Fat lip. I wasn’t in the room and Matt was too scared to move (feet up in the recliner) in case he would thump her. It was only sheer luck that she didn’t go face first into the edge of the filing cabinet when I was urging her to go play with her toys and she pulled away, going flying. She also went running (ANOTHER new thing this week!) and went face first about 3 inches from the tv screen. That would have hurt like a… well, you know.
Naked running around the house instead of getting in the bath is fun (socks optional) as well as running away instead of getting a new diaper.
Last week’s games were ‘shutting our fingers in the french doors’ and ‘trying to eat dirty snow’…
Oh, the games we play.
I LOVE naked running around the house games, as long as there is no pee on my floor. We didn’t always get so lucky. I loved watching the kids streak naked to their rooms after their baths – such cute little tushies running around! ENjoy it while it’s still cute and not inappropriate!
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes was a favorite, along with Itsy Bitsy (although Lauren’s spider always went up a tree, and while he does go up a spout now, it’s water that comes down, not rain), and I’m a Little Teapot. I bet she did say “roll it.” Just keep trying until you hear it again! She will, and it’s so very cool!
Jacob tried the “Let’s eat this white and black stuff that turned out to be bird poop” game. And Lauren ate paver’s sand from a bucket in the garage. And both tried crayons of course. Strangely enough, they both tried green first. And Lauren tried several other colors after that.
I finally get to sit in the recliner with my feet up, now that the kids don’t climb under there. It’s been 4 years. Tell Matt that such relaxing isn’t allowed!!!
