Striptease, Stacking & Vocals

With each day that Billa gets older, she amazes us with what she learns and does. Take for example, our wake up call on Saturday morning.

Michael and I had had a date night the evening before to go see a movie while Billa stayed with her Gigi (Michael's mom). So we got home WAY late and so we were all very tired the next morning. Usually on weekends we pull Billa into bed with us when she wakes up at about 7:30 to try and reclaim a few minutes of precious shuteye. She scooted off the bed and started rummaging through stuff and pulling things out. I finally got up and was headed to the shower when Billa brought me a diaper. "Where did you get a diaper from?" I asked her. That was when I noticed that she was naked from the waist down. Whoops! Looks like Daddy's diaper change at 4 am didn't go so well! Fortunately, it was not a poopy diaper, but it certainly was an eye-opener for sure.

Billa has also started to learn how to stack things. We got her a musical star stacker for her birthday and since she has learned how to stack the stars on it, EVERYTHING gets stacked. She's been pulling the DVD's off the shelf and stacking them, books get stacked, the puzzle boards get stacked, etc. We've been trying to get her to replace them when she's done and I guess it's starting to sink in... she placed her paci in the empty space on the DVD shelf!

Vocally, Billa's babble has been morphing into more complex sounds with quite a range. Sometimes she likes to growl and roar, and others she trills and squeals. We've also noticed that she is starting to associate certain words with certain objects, which is really exciting. It's hilarious to ask her where Gumerry is and watch her hunt the cat down.

Anyway, I've been meaning to post some pictures except that a certain someone (Daddy) left our camera at his cousin Stephen's house on St. Patty's Day and we have been unable to retrieve it since. [sigh] I'll definitely post lots of them when I get it back!

Until then,
Kelly & the Gang
