When it comes to daring, there’s nothing lacking here! Naomi delights in climbing. Here she is dancing on the play table and squealing in the glory of having conquered the challenge. Milo, look out–you may be the biggest and fastest now, but your little sister will be constantly pushing into your wake.
“Faster, Ella!” The danger of falling doesn’t cross her mind, she’s just loving the speed.
Until recently Naomi was pretty good natured about having certain items taken away, but that complacency has abruptly ended. She had the white board marker yesterday (it stains!) and was making purple streaks on the carpet. She threw a noisy fit when it was confiscated, so I set her in her high chair with the washable markets and a piece of drawing paper. Boy, was she thrilled! I’d still classify her as a happy baby, but she’ll also screech in protest when something doesn’t go her way. Nothing lackadaisical here–she’s full of pep and shazam.
