I know it's been a while since I've posted new video footage. I apologize to those of you who resort to replaying the old ones over and over and over again. To make up for it, here's almost 2 minutes of something I recorded on Wednesday. Bella was just being her cute self when we went out on the stairs and I happened to bring the camcorder.
Other happenings this week- until now, Bella's monkey-like tendencies have been kept in check by her short reach (still in the 0 percentile, Yes!). She just wasn't tall enough to reach the things needed for her to mount the desk, counters or table. This week she figured out how to use the computer desk drawers as steps to climb on top. She also figured out that if Mommy moves the chair too far from the table for her to use it to get on top, she can move the chair closer. She also applied that concept to the counter tops. She now has free access to all of her favorite things; the computer, faucets, cupboards, and a Mommy going crazy trying to keep her feet on the floor.
At 18 months Bella has also become quite the organizer. She loves to put things away, and throwing trash in the garbage. After diaper changes she can't rest until she has taken the dirty diaper and deposited it into the trash can. She is the cutest little girl in the world!
