Alice is growing up so fast I’ve missed the reporting of a few milestones. at about 9 months she FINALLY gave up spitting-up. there was much rejoicing. not only was that a gross habit, but she looks a lot cuter without a bib around her neck at all times. more recently, since she’s almost a year old, she’s given up formula for good old fashioned milk, and just today we put away the bottles in favor of sippy cups. she seems to be doing fine with the changes…it’s funny that we stressed over such things with Caleb and hardly give it a second thought for her. she’s pretty easy-going.
she loves to play with Caleb but he doesnt usually feel the same. she actually goes after him a lot — grabbing his hair or face — which leads to screams from him and then her, and she’s turning into a little antagonist. but they occasionally have fun together, and that’s happening more often, which is good to see. here they are last night, with Caleb pushing her on the car a little bit, which she absolutely loved.
oh and check out Caleb’s shirt — mama’s first freezer-paper stencil. isnt it great? she’s crafty!
