Libby continues to crave stimulation and has required quite a bit of entertaining recently. I'm hoping she's just going through a growth spurt and that's what accounts for her extra crankiness of late. Either way, she's learning a lot and it's fun to see what she's picked up on without us even explicitly teaching her. For instance, we read her favorite book, I Took the Moon for a Walk, about a hundred times a day. So sometimes, instead of reading the text, we just point out pictures on the page. I taught her to point out the main characters (the boy and the moon) as well as the facial features (eyes, nose, mouth) on each of them. When that got old, I started asking her to point out other images in the background. To my surprise, she was able to point out the teeny-tiny dogs in the very far background, without me even showing them to her. Bam. My child is a genius.
Libby loves scooping...anything. I've been letting her "help" me in the kitchen more often. She loves to sit on the counter and scoop flour, rice, oats, etc. from one bowl to another.
She's afraid of school buses.
I think that about covers it.
