How Time Flies

  • February 6, 2010 11:49 am

It’s hard to believe just last year at this time that Kira was basically a little lump of a baby just shy of two months old.  We’d get all excited if she held her head steady without bobbing, or lifted it on her own, or gave us a tiny grin.  We longed for the day when she could interact more with us, when she could sit up on her own and play with toys…

Well, now it’s here.  Now she’s 13 1/2 months and she definitely is holding her head steady and grins and giggles all the time.  She thinks she’s pretty funny actually.  She interacts with us, talks to us, roars at us, chatters about 97% of the time.  She walks all over the place, says about a dozen “words”, understands basic things like “sit down”, “go get”, and “where is”.  She can point to her tummy and feet. 

She’s recently taken to closing doors, which is a bit of a danger not only of pinched fingers, but that she’ll go into a room somewhere and close the door and we won’t know it.  Aside from the worries of these two things, it’s also just annoying.  Every time we walk into a room, she follows behind and shuts the door.  I suppose next is opening doors, which means we need to get a lock on the door leading to the basement ASAP!

    Its amazing how quickly she has become a little person with her own personality. I wonder if the shutting the door thing is some sort of residual NZr thing, because we don’t have central heating, the one occupied room would get heated and the rest of the house is freezing so as we grew up we learnt to shut doors! I’m sure its just the novelty of having the power to shut doors, but i still find it amusing.
