Lists on Elizabeth

Things I want Elizabeth to be able to do now:
  • feed herself and actually get food in her mouth
  • use words like, "Mum, I really really don't like this food, please stop shoving it in my mouth" instead of just clamping her gums together
  • find her soother all on her own when she wakes up in the night
  • know how tall she is and stop standing up underneath coffee tables and hitting her head

Things I wish Elizabeth still did:
  • sit in the same place when I left the room
  • only breastfed - it was so much easier to leave the house, no packing of food, and spoons, and bib, and cloth, and, and, and, and, and...
  • slept in our arms
  • lay down in the bath - it was super cute to see her splash with four limbs - but now she sits up and plays with toys instead of just splashing

  Things I want Elizabeth to do forever:
  • crawl/walk to the door and be super excited when Matthew comes home from work
  • babble-sing to herself
  • put her head on my shoulder when we hug
  • play dress up with the piles of laundry or the mitts & toques by the front door
  •  do "cheers" with her sippy cup (or regular cup when we get there)

Things that make me excited for Elizabeth to be a teenager one day:
  • teaching her to make us coffee in the morning, and then having it on her list of daily chores

I agree. I want Leah to stay a little baby forever, but I can't wait to watch her grow!

Dido to pretty much all those. I love the repeated head bonking as they get more and more frustrated.
