Sometimes it seems like Kaitlin will literally wake up, from a nap or a night of sleep, and just know how to do something new. Case in point - this week she woke up from a nap and started blowing "raspberries" or bubbles. I had never heard her do it before and suddenly it's all she wanted to do. She is learning and growing so much every day it blows my mind.
She is getting so good at blowing bubbles now. She wants to practice every minute she can, including at 3 o'clock in the morning after she wakes up to eat. And while it is extremely adorable to watch her do this, with rivers of saliva running down her face (and clothes and sheets) I could probably skip the 3AM practice sessions. Her new nickname is Slimer. I didn't think it was possible for so much spit to come out of such a tiny human being. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like when she starts teething.
Other things she learned this week? She learned she can put a lot of pressure on her feet and legs and push off. Brian helped her figure this out last weekend in the jumperoo and now she can't get enough of it. In the beginning her legs were really mushy and wobbly. But now that she has been working on it for a week her legs have gotten really strong! I'm really surprised at how quickly she builds up muscle. So now we have a jumping drool machine on our hands - and she couldn't be cuter!
