Cayman seems to have made another leap in development lately. Cognitively she is taking in things with a greater understanding.
Even though she doesn't toddle, she really does seem like a toddler to me and I catch myself when I call her a baby still. I know she'll always be my baby but in true light, she really is no longer a baby. She is my little toddler and I have to say I am enjoying this stage a lot.
Cayman is in a mimicking phase right now. It is hilarious watching her repeat actions that we did not even realize she was observing. For example, when I'm on the floor folding a pile of laundry, she'll make her way over, pick up a towel, shirt, or whatever was in that load, shake it out and then crumple it up, trying to mimic the folding action. So cute! And so smart!
She also wipes the tray on her high chair clean with sweeping movements of the washcloth back and forth.
She even scooted her way over to the patio doors one day where I was busy cleaning the windows. Cayman picked up a paper towel and started to wipe it across the window just as she saw me doing.
But I think my absolute favorite is when she picks up my chapstick, with the cap still intact, she touches it to her mouth, and then blots her lips together.
So cute. So smart.
My little toddler.
