Walk Around the Block

Actually, it's a walk around The District, a new shopping center in Tustin. Danica's not the best follower when we go for walks right now.

Contain Her Not

Here’s what it’s like when you take Danica to the store. At least she entertains herself.

This is Why

A couple of posts ago, I told you that the video I posted was not of a “typical” walk with Danica. Here’s why:

As you can see, she kinda wanders all over the place and isn’t really great at coming to you when you call to her. We don’t take Danica for a walk; she takes us.

19 Months

Can you believe it? Just five more months until Danica’s TWO! Crazy.

There’s still a lot I haven’t covered with her, since she’s going through another growth spurt, mentally. She’s picking up words really quickly now. She doesn’t pronounce them well, but she’s trying. In the past week, she’s added “birdies,” “car,” and “cold.” She’s also a big fan of the word “ball.”

Just yesterday we noticed that she’s really started to pay attention to her surroundings, especially when we’re outside. I took her on a walk around the complex yesterday, and she pointed to all the bushes, grass, and rocks. We were on the sidewalk and walked by a rock, which she pointed to, then knelt down and pointed at the sidewalk as if to say, “That’s a rock, just like this is a rock?” It was pretty cool.

She’s also very enthusiastic about things she knows the names of, so every time we head to our garage and when we are driving around, she likes to point out all the cars. Oh, and she’s recently also picked up the sign for “motorcycle,” which is just holding your hands like you’d hold bike bars and twisting your fists (see below):

Anyway, that’s just another quick update. More later.
