Note to Self

Every day it seems there are things that Brenna does or learns that I want to remember. It's hard to imagine ever forgetting things, but I know it will happen as she grows and develops so quicly! Anyhow, here are three big ones.

*Today Brenna was playing in the living room floor and had walked over to the DVD player under our TV. She hit the open/close button (which she'd done, on accident, before) and the drawer came out. It scared her to death! She started crying and backed away. I went over to rescue her and showed her how touching the button again would make the drawer go back in. She laughed at this. Then we opened it again, and she backed away and gasped again. Repeat about 10 times. She finally figured out how to push the button herself, which is probably a terrible lesson. But, hey, at least she's not afraid anymore!

*A couple nights ago Jonathan and I were sitting in the floor rolling two of Brenna's balls back and forth to her. We kept saying "ball" and she kept repeating it. She's pretty good at rolling and tossing the ball, and she says "ball" every time. She really knows what the word means, which just boggles my mind!

*She's getting SO much more steady on her feet. She's bent over a few times to pick things up without falling while standing. Today she bent over, picked up a Puff she'd dropped, and stood right back up and kept walking. It was just so cute to see her do that. I'm not sure what it is about a baby bending down, but it just makes me giggle. Her little toddle is so adorable, and it's amazing how good she has gotten at it.

These days are priceless, and I couldn't be more thankful for snow days right now!!
