– Grabbing for mom’s food and drink! Solids are just two weeks away!

– Accidentally got a mouth full of apple juice (see above). She was not impressed. She spat it all out and made a face.

– Squealing! It is adorable and annoying. And loud. I keep reminding us both that she is just exploring all that her vocal cords can do.

– Passing objects between hands

– Sitting unsupported for extended periods (not quite indefinitely: she eventually topples, but it can be 5-10 minutes!)

– Stepping with purpose while someone holds her standing. I call this the “step step game” and every time she takes a step I exclaim, “Step!” It’s a great deal of fun for everyone except my triceps.
