It's possible that I am overestimating Hannah's current communication skills (no repeat on the nose touching), but I'm pretty sure that she said "da da" this morning. After her first nursing today, she crawled over to Eric's empty side and said "da!" then after a pause "da!" So maybe she was just doing her baby babble and wasn't saying the name of the guy who is usually laying there when she finishes nursing in the morning, but even if that's the case, her use of the consonant "d" has been pretty rare so that verbal development alone is exciting.
Another rare moment is pictured below. Hannah sat still for at least 20 minutes while Eric read book after book to her on Monday. It was really cute. For all you other parents out there who think, "big deal, my kids snuggles up with daddy to read all the time," well, my kid doesn't. Granted, she's been more into books lately and into turning the pages and she'll let you read a few pages, sometimes even a whole book before she pushes it aside and continues trying to scale the walls, so to see her sitting still like that with him was just awesome.
Her eyes are a teeny bit bigger than her stomach.
Another thing Hannah learned to do today: climb a step ladder by herself....Like I said, she's trying to scale the walls. Rather than pull her down, I moved the ladder so it was next to where I was chopping vegetables and kept one eye on her and one on my rapidly moving knife. Somehow, I didn't lose a finger and she didn't fall. So this is what Eric saw when he came home from work today:
The color setting was a little screwed up on this one but I like the smiles too much not to include it.
