Jayla’s newest thing is that she can now point to things. If she sees something that sparks her interest she will point at it and then turn and look at me as if to say, “Do you see that?’ She also really notices people’s gestures/actions/emotions/sounds and will imitate them. For example, if she is watching people talk and one of them laughs she will start laughing too. It is so cute and she does it every time…almost like she doesn’t want to be left out of the joke or something. Also, this last weekend when we were at the tournament there was this game that was getting really intense. I was holding her while watching the game and I started cheering and yelling for the team really loud. All of a sudden she started kicking her feet and throwing her fists around and screaming in these high pitched bursts…..she would break out into it every time she heard me cheer, almost like she was trying to imitate what I was doing. Jayla also surprised us with saying ‘uh-oh’ the other day! She had dropped one of her toys on the floor and I said ‘uh-oh’ and to my surprise she looked up at me and said it right back! Now almost every time she drops a toy she will say it. Jayla’s two front-top teeth have poked their way through this month as well. The older Jayla gets the more and more she has started to resemble JJ, and the redder, and redder her hair gets! In fact everyone that stops me while we are out and about says, ‘Oh, you have two red-heads!’ Who would have thunk it?
Enjoy the pictures!
