A few new things

I wanted to capture and share with you a few new things that Kylie's doing.

1. Sshhh goes the air conditioner
Kylie is very aware of the air conditioner in our home. When it kicks on, she smiles and makes the shhhh sound. Then she crawls to the nearby air vent and puts her hand over it to feel the air. If I say, "Can I have some air?", she'll "grab" some air and hand it to me. It's very cute.

2. Walking the stairs.
Although she can crawl up the stairs much faster, lately she's been insisting on holding onto my hands and "walking" up the stairs. This "walking" mostly consists of me hefting her up by her hands (which makes me worry that her arms are going to pop out of socket) as she touches her toes to each stair. It's a good workout for me and it makes her feel like a big girl or something so I'm indulging her on this one.

3. The garbage can is fun!
Kylie has also learned to lift the lid of our kitchen garbage can and drop things in it. So now I have to keep more of a watchful eye on her when we are in the kitchen together. Fishing Little People out of kitchen scraps and trash is not my idea of fun.

4. Peek-a-boo and hugs
Kylie has been playing peek-a-boo with us by peeking around furniture and by using a blanket or other toys for quite some time. But now she has learned to put her hands over her eyes to play peek-a-boo. It's very sweet. I just wish she didn't want to play this so much while she is eating. Food ends up everywhere!
And Kylie has been hugging her stuffed animals for a while. But now when you say "hug" to her, she'll grab her shirt with her hands and twist back and forth--essentially hugging herself.

Lastly, here's a scrapbook page.

I love to hear about all the cute, little, new things that Kylie is doing. It makes me realize all the little things that my kiddo does that I don't even think about.

The hugs are especially great. Ethan will do this with kisses as well. When we ask, all of his stuffed animals hug and kiss each other. And he'll hug himself, and he'll kiss his own "owies". Aren't kids great!

I'm LOL at the garbage can thing, because just the past week it's the same situation in our house. We keep saying "Yuck" and making a face, and redirecting, but man it's enticing to them! LOL And the air- K stands over our vents and says "hair" because it blows her hair! I love reading about Kylie and her milestones, it's so fun to "live" them with you
