Fiona and I have been trying to stay busy to keep from going too stir crazy. Miss G comes over during the week, which is nice because she and Fiona are actually starting to play together nicely. It's funny to watch them jabber at each other and laugh. Fi tries very hard to make G laugh. She is quite the ham some days. We spend most of our days playing in her car seat box though. I cut some windows in it and we taped up some pictures inside and she thinks that is great fun. She goes in there and sits and plays or reads.
Fiona's all time favorite toy is her doll these days. She carries her baby around and rocks it and sings to it. She's going to be such a good big sister.
I can't believe how much she grows and changes everyday. She is very much a monkey and climbs everything. She also figured out how to open our baby gate, so pretty much nothing in our house is safe. She drags toys and boxes around to climb on so that she can reach high counters and shelves. Part of me wants to tear my hair out and the other part is secretly proud at how creative she is about figuring things out.
Fiona has also been learning a lot more signs. She still doesn't say a ton of words, but at least she is signing more and more. Just this week she has started signing: please, dance, music, and cookie. I love it when she figures out a new sign because she gets sooo excited and uses it ALL day. I've never been more tired than the day that she figured out how to sign dance. We danced all. day. long.
