We figured out the other day that Daniela is trying to repeat alot of what we say. For about a day and half she had been doing what I thought was a cat noise. She kept saying -“Au” repeatedely and sometimes she would say “Rau” . Funny thing is that when she stood at the bottom of the stairs yelling up and saying “au” I caught on that she was mimicking me saying “Raul”
She stood by herself for about five seconds before she sat down. She has been doing this almost handstand. She is loving to walk with assistance and pulling herself up and side stepping everywhere she can. Daniela has taken some tumbles as all babies do at her age.
She bled from hitting her mouth on the tile floor a couple of times. And it freaked us out several times. But thank goodness with a call to the doctor and some pressure to her mouth, the bleeding stopped.
She is awake most of the day but sleeps really bad at night. She gets up at least once or twice and tosses and turns and cries while sleeping. She is growing in another tooth so I think this is the cause.
Other highlights this month are her clearing saying and pointing to my breast and saying Teta in public. She is standing up by herself with a bit more confidence and then throws herself against me.
Another big highlight was meeting Titi Milta. We had such a great time with her at the Caribe Hilton. She immediately went to Milta and was very comfortable with her. She even gave Milta a kiss and those don’t get planted on just anybody. She was in the water and loved every minute of it. We went up and down the escalator at the mall about ten times between Raul and I.
Her favorite book this month was by Sandra Boynton called “The Going to Bed Book” but in Spanish.
We celebrated Tio Tito’s birthday with him and he loved every minute of her company.
Words that she is saying clearly That, Butt, Book, Ball. JuanGa broke the one she was given for Three Kings day by the municpality and Raul looked for another one to give her. While shopping her and Raul passed by some balls and she was screaming ball in KMart.
She loves dancing and singing. She is trying to take the baby fork and pick things up but JuanGa is enjoying all of her mess.
