“Where is Anabelle?” is currently our favorite game in this house! We have three living room windows covered in lace curtains that drape all the way to the ground. Anabelle loves to grab hold of the curtain and whip it out toward the room allowing it to fall around her. She then sits quietly and watches you as you walk around the room softly yelling “Wheeeeeeeeere is Anabelle?!” Every once in a while you hear her let out a giggle and the game gets even more intense. When you finally pick up the curtain and yell, “There she is!!!” She squeals with delight and whips the curtain right back around her for another round!
So Daddy is starting to get a little jealous and this is probably one of my absolute favorite things Anabelle is doing right now. Daddy comes and gives me a kiss. Anabelle pants and hurries and climbs up into my lap and opens her mouth to give me a bigger, longer smooch. When she’s done, she immediately whips her head around and looks at Daddy. Daddy goes in to give her a kiss and she turns away. So instead he gives me another kiss. Again, Anabelle pants and hurries to climb up to my face and gives me another kiss and then whips her head around to look at Daddy. She doesn’t want to give Daddy a kiss, she just wants to compete for Mommy’s affection! OooooH! I love my little Mommy’s girl!!!
Anabelle loves to get into what she is not allowed to have, as I guess is the case with any newly mobile baby and thus where the concept of baby proofing comes in… Anyways, Daddy had a bucket of goodies from his birthday and Anabelle loves to use the bucket to stand up and then throws everything in the bucket onto the floor. It’s quite a harmless yet noisy process that entertains her, so I let her do it. Well one day I realized that she was waaaaay too quite. I look up and she is sitting in the middle of the spilled bag of beef jerky, pieces spread all around her, and in her hand is the biggest piece that she is just intently sucking on! Mommy fail. (PS. Isn’t that just a phenomenal head of nap hair?!
The weather outside has been mostly nice in the past two weeks and we both love it! Anabelle gets a little bored and hardly plays with her toys as much as she used to, but a fresh setting with lots of new things to explore has been just the ticket for both of us to relax and have fun!
Happy Friday! And Happy Easter
