Growing Girl...

Dakota is an eager learner and has picked up on a lot of new things since the last update. Here are some new things that she has recently started to do...

  • Can point to her toes, nose, ears, eyes, belly and head when asked.


  • Raises her hand to tell us she wants more of something.


  • Knows how to sign thank you.


  • Scrunches her face when we tell her to show us her silly face.


  • Brings us toys that we ask her to get, and will put things away when asked.


  • If we tell her we're going outside, she'll run to grab her shoes first. And yes, she still tries to put them on herself.


  • If we tell her to open her mouth, she will. We do this because she refuses to swallow food sometimes.


  • Still loves to help mommy shut drawers and cabinet doors in the kitchen.


  • Can walk backwards.


  • Says "Me" when she sees herself in the mirror.


  • Eats with a fork. She's a bit messier with the spoon. Haha!


  • Shakes her head no when she's had enough to eat.


  • Makes a decent attempt at brushing her own teeth.


  • Can step in and out of clothes, or will give us a limb to assist with dressing.


  • Says "vroom vroom" to passing cars.


  • She'll reply with "bye" when someone says "see ya later" or "adios."


  • and, she can climb down the stairs now. She's been climbing up since she was about 10 months old.
    • So, there you have it. That's what my busy little bee has been up to lately.
