We're taking her off the acid blockers. This is not only good news for her tummy, but also for our wallet! Hoo-ray!
Speaking of chubby babies, Vivi is great at getting food in her own mouth. I feel like Maddie didn't have that skill mastered until the age of three, but Vivi shovels it in by the fistful, forkful, or cupful.
Those chubby cheeks are not just for kissing and squeezing though. She hides food in them. When there's no more room, she spits all the mushed up food back out. Gross. Sometimes she spits the food out half an hour after she's eaten. It's like she's preparing for winter.
We tried avocado again this week without incident. Last week's rash must have been from her clothing. Hoo-Ray!
She now loves avocado, beans, grapes, and applesauce the best. We had spicy chili for dinner one night this week, and she loved it! Maddie likes spicy foods too. It always surprises me.
Vivi is a champion pointer. She points at pictures on the wall, people walking by, toys she wants. Pretty much everything. When Eric gets home from work, she crawls up to him and gives him the double point. "You. Hey, you. I know you, man."
We have a red headed witch decoration that we hung on our door for Halloween. Today, Vivi pointed at the witch, then pointed at me, then back to the witch. She repeated this gesture several times. I guess I look like a witch.
She's getting braver about standing solo. I think she'd be able to walk if she were just a little more confident about letting go. We'll see.
She's also been a bit better around other people. Not the doctors...who touch her, but people who stay a comfortable distance away seem okay.
She's entering such a fun age. We can see the wheels turning. We can watch her facial expressions as she processes the world. Communication is growing. Her personality is fully emerging.
I can't believe we'll be celebrating her first birthday next month. Life is passing so quickly...too quickly. Sob. My baby!
