With the sweet baby's birthday quickly approaching, we've been getting some inquiries as to what she'd like for presents. Of course we are so grateful for just the thought, but we would like to be helpful in guiding MB's fan club in the right direction. With that in mind, and possibly too much early childhood education knowledge in the mind of the Mama, we've put together a little "Wish List" on Pinterest of some materials and things it would be nice to have for her over the next year.
Here is the link: Wish List for Millie Bea (12-24months)
We try to keep things simple and uncluttered (I said try), so she can concentrate and enjoy whichever task she chooses to engage in. Right now her daily favorite activities include crawling over to Sneaky's toy box and handing him his toys one-by-one (which he also seems to delight in), and opening/closing drawers and cupboard doors. I am VERY pleased that she is finally crawling. It is the cutest thing to watch. At Library Book Babies this week we stayed for 45 minutes afterwards and Millie crawled all around the room playing with toys and visiting the other kids. She is becoming very independent, which surprises us because Brady and I were both shy as kids. When she's around her friends and I try to help her she pushes my hands away and shakes her head "no".
She's waking up now so I'll finish this post later!
