Ali is now 15-months old! Woo hoo!! She still can't walk on her own, though she can walk decently if you hold her hands. Ali is a little chicken and she is too scared to walk on her own. Grandparents are a little concerned, but to be honest, I am not worried. Everyone eventually knows how to walk and run, right? It is only a matter of time. But it would be nice if she does know how to walk independently. Boy, my arms are pretty sore holding her!
She loves taking things out and putting things in containers. She can do it for a long time. Pumpkins are her newest obsession. Ali just LOVES looking at pumpkins. I couldn't resist but bought a whole bunch of halloween pumpkin decorations just for her. Gotta love the dollar store!
Monster Pumpkins display at Metro:
Although she can't really talk yet (just babbling), she does comprehend what we are saying most of the time (but hubby and I don't really know what she is babbling about and often times lead to her frustration!). Here is a video of Ali showing off a few things that she knows:
A few teeth are coming out. The "fangs" from the top and another bottom teeth are coming out, but for some reason, the top front teeth are still missing. Weird. Ali is also more particular about her food now. She used to love everything we give her. Now, she is into more solid type of food. Not so much with the mushy stuff. One of her favourite restaurants is The Boss at Metro. That's right. That is also my favourite restaurant, with the A+B breakfast combo. How can you beat that? Yum!
Ali doesn't nap as much. She can usually nap for 2 hours on the weekend, but only an hour at the most if she is at daycare. We usually rock her and snuggle with her for a few minutes before we put her to bed. Lately, she doesn't want to be rocked. We would rock her and pat her just for a few seconds and she would point to her crib. As if she is saying, "Enough mommy/daddy, just put me to bed. I am too old to be rocked to sleep. Seriously." Yup, go straight to bed is what Ali wants. My tofu princess is sure growing up fast!
