Brigid has been having quite a few firsts lately. The day after Thanksgiving, she got her first tooth. Apparently she was just waiting for the turkey to eat with it. She got her bottom left and is working on both her upper front, but they haven't erupted as yet.
For St. Nick's Day, Brigid had her first chocolate. And then her second. And then her third. Yes, Brigid and chocolate coins go together like peas and carrots.
December 7th, Brigid took her first steps. She's been very close a few times but always hesitant. She could do it but lacks confidence. Apparently the chance to grab mommy's iPhone builds confidence. This does make her my latest walker at 11 months, but I'm okay with that. :)
Walking, no problem. Now climbing, that is another matter. On December 10th, Brigid figured out how to climb on the children's chairs.
And she was happy about it.
And kept doing it.
Over and over again.
Even after falling off and hitting her head on my desk.
Didn't deter her none though.
Now she climbs on step stools, the doll bed, and anything that is less than 8 inches tall.
Yes, this includes the stairs which she finally managed to get up a few.
She doesn't seem to understand that Teresa is my monkey and she should just focus on walking and being the cute one and let Teresa be the climbing, rough-and-tumble, troublesome one.
Brigid seems to be trying to rack up her remaining first before her first birthday in 3 1/2 weeks. :)
