This last month has been a little rough for Caroline- well really just one week of it was really rough. She had what I would call her first real bug- a gastrointestinal virus that lasted a whole week. Thankfully, she's doing better now and is back to her normal cheerful self. The only bummer is that she's not sleeping quite as well as she did before she got sick, but hopefully we'll get back in the habit quickly.
Other things going on this past month (aside from Halloween and other festivities):
~Caroline is a walking pro. She almost never crawls but will still occasionally do her little knee shuffle.
~ She's got four teeth on top- officially. Still only three on the bottom, although I don't think it will be long before that fourth one is through.
~ She likes to clap her hands to "If you're happy and you know it"
~ Still not saying a whole lot of words... she talks quite a bit and every once in a while I think I can make out an "all done" or "mama" or "hi dada!" but it's really only understandable in context.
~ Before she got sick she was getting really picky about what she wanted to eat- it was very frustrating- but since she's gotten over her illness she's a bottomless pit making up for lost time and will eat anything and everything in front of her.
~ Still taking two naps during the day and sleeping through the night (except for post-illness)
~ Likes to play hide and seek.
~ Has gotten much more social with other babies we see- unless they get too close. Then we get tears.
~ Still plays pretty well by herself, but wants someone else with her a little more than she used to.
~ She's really cute with babydolls. She (usually) is very sweet with them and will hold them over her shoulder and pat them. It's amazing to me that she does that because I really don't know where or when she's seen someone doing that with a baby.
~ Is getting much more opinionated. It's not always fun.
~ Loves wearing her shoes and likes to play dress up.
~ Can follow directions pretty well... but that doesn't mean that she does follow directions.
