There's no place like home

Another month has gone by and we are 15 months old now. She's learned a few new tricks. if she hears music now she starts to dance by rocking back and forth. She is saying doggy, daddy, mama-most of which are said only as a high pitched screams as she runs by so it's a little hard to know for sure. Oh and she is running now.

She seems to have picked up on the concept of "this". She knows she can point to almost anything and say "this?" She points to pictures, vases, pillows, mirrors, books and pretty much everything and says "this." How did "this" happen. Well to the best of my recollection I've been saying "this is a ball" this is a picture" etc. and she's skipping the name of the object. I guess I've been asking her what's she's pointing at by pointing at things and saying "is this what you want?" She is right. This is this.

She's starting to play and interact with other kids. Especially if they have food. At the park the other day she just went up and stared at a family with necterines. I think she learned this from Muggs. We did take her and Muggs on a camping trip at a place called Lost Lake. We packed all our camping gear, baby gear and dog gear into the truck and drove the 2 hrs up. The lake was beautiful and there were rowboats and paddleboats but we ended up swimming since we had our two troublemakers. Grace wouldn't go in the water and Muggs wouldn't come out. So David and I took turns playing in the water and picking up rocks on the beach with Grace. We had renting a little cabin but it was kind of gross and buggy and Grace wouldn't go in it either. After about three hours of keeping the dog and baby entertained and alive, David and I decided that it was too stressfull. So after we cooked our camp dinner of hotdogs (baby hated;dog loved) we packed up the show and drove home. Lessons learned: Camp in the backyard.
