It’s been a while since the monkey has had some blog time around here. She’s growing quickly and gets into everything in like 0.2 seconds. She’s still not talking much at almost 16 months, but gets what she needs with her communication.
Her sisters went upstairs, closed the gate and abandoned her. She was looking to quickly remedy that. Seriously, how can she even reach that latch? (Not to worry, it’s pretty impossible to unlock and you need two hands, so I’m certain she’s not unlocking it any time soon!)
She also loves to play in the bathroom (her sisters love to leave the door open), so we’ve lost a couple rolls of toilet paper. The other day, I noticed as she was trying to get out of the house (she can also reach the doorknobs now, too), she had a little something stuck to her foot. I laughed hysterically. You would have to and stopped to take a picture before helping her get it off. She could have cared less.
And, this is what happens when the gate is left open. She’s up the stairs in no time flat. This was after spaghetti night so she was sans-shirt, but apparently, I didn’t bother to take her shoes off. So very proud of herself.
She’s really coming into her own and letting her personality shine through. She will sign “please” if it’s something she really wants, and thinking burping is hilarious. But, don’t let a stranger get to close or she’ll lose it. Mother’s morning out will be interesting next year!
