Tomoe’s night of surprises

She keeps surprising me.  Tonight, I was happy to witness three things that she’s learned to do.

First, I got to see her standing on her own quite a bit.  She was in her bed, and she usually holds on to the sides when standing.  But occasionally, she let go and stood there for a good 2 or 3 seconds without holding onto anything.  Her balance is improving, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s standing on her own very well in a month or so.

Second, she’s getting better at holding her bottle.  She’s learned that if there isn’t much left in it, she should hold it so that the bottom is higher than the top.  She’s starting to understand that’s how she can drink.

And finally, as I was about to take her out to pick up my wife from work, I said to her, “Let’s go see mommy!”  She immediately gave me a big smile and was very happy.

She’s understanding more and more these days.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  1. Changes sure seem to be coming fast, before you know it she will be a year old, running, not walking. The first words she will say are no and why. Have fun.
