She's a SPONGE!

I'll be 39 weeks pregnant tomorrow and being induced Wednesday morning. I thought I'd better get a post in before things really get crazy with 2 little girls in the house.

Caydence has turned into a sponge, she seems to be picking up everything we've been teaching her lately. It's amazing. Here's some new things she's been doing the past few months.
  • Can sit up from a laying position
  • Pivots around in a circle while sitting
  • Stacks her blocks
  • Puts together her nesting cups in order
  • Waves Bye Bye
  • Feeds her babydoll with a spoon and bottle
  • When asked "Where's your foot?" she will either grab her foot or grab your hand and put it on one of her feet.
  • When asked "Where's your hair?" she will grab her hair
  • When asked "Where's your nose?" she will point to your nose, sometimes her own
  • When asked "Where's the bear?" she will point to Josh's bear tattoo on his left arm.
  • When asked "Where's Katlyn?" she will point to Josh's tattoo of our daughter Katlyns footprints on his right arm. Katlyn was stillborn in Feb 08.
  • Understands the words "In", "Sit Up", "Up", "Stack", "bear", "foot", "nose", "bye bye", "Katlyn", "Elmo", "Grover", "Ernie", "Play", "Mama", "Dada", "Gram Gram", "Ball", "Kitty", "Book", "Spit", "Eat", "Drink", I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them off hand
  • Understands the signs "All Done", "Eat", "Drink", "Play", "Ball", "Daddy", "Mommy", "Grandma", "More"
  • Clearly says "Dada" when she wants her Dad
  • Signs "More"
  • She also has been trying to do the hand motions when I sing her the Itsy Bitsy Spider

Right now, she is really into fine motor skills. She's not big on gross motor skills. She doesn't like to be on her stomach or on her hands and knees, so she still isn't crawling, but she gets to where she needs to go by rolling, twisting and pivoting around. We aren't too worried though, it's not like she will never walk.

She was doing pretty good at eating, but now she's poppin a couple more teeth, so she's been rather fussy. Only taking about an ounce at a sitting :P

Anyways, I just thought I type a quick note to let everyone know how's she's doing.
