The Magic Vent

It was so cute! Constance was low crawling all around our living room the other day and just happened to be by the vent when the air conditioning kicked on. It blew on her face and she squealed and kept hitting the vent with her hand. I did not know whether or not to leave her there so I picked her up and moved her to the middle of the living room floor. She immediately turned toward where the vent was and low crawled as fast as she could to get there. Once the air was hitting her again she kept laughing and cackling at it while she hit it with her hand.

I wish we had it on video camera but we pulled out the laser light that our cat Oreo LOVES to chase. When Constance saw the light she kept hitting at it and trying to scoop it up with her hand. As soon as I began moving the light Constance low crawled towards it. When she reached it and hit her hand on the floor we would move the light again. Off she went after the laser light-from one side of the living room to the other. Oreo did not find it as amusing as we did.

We had three days of successful sweet potato eating but once I gave her applesauce again she would not eat anything solid. We also started her on pears yesterday. I hate pears-anything to do with pears actually. The smell of pear lotion, the pear itself, and pictures of pears-Yuck! However I wanted to give my daughter a chance to like the fruit. I think her reaction to them was one of the worst yet!


  1. It is so cool getting slobbery kisses without asking for them. She is really coming out of her "shell" right now. She is such a happy little girl. I hope she stays like that throughout life. The more she laughs, the longer she will live according to scientific research.

    Eventually she will like solid foods. I think it has to do with the sweet factor. She prefers Momma's milk to the bland foods we have been giving her, even the natural sweetness of fruits. At some point it will kick in though, as your supply nutrients change.

    You are doing a great job with her on helping her develop. I like how you challenge her to do different things and how you are consistently trying to work in sign language. It will "click" at some point. That will be so cool.

    Lots of love!!!

  2. I'm enjoying reading your blog. Those days seem like they went by so fast!
    She's such a cutie!

  3. What a cute photo with her right at that magic vent! She's getting faster and faster, mommy and daddy. Catch her if you can! What a wonderful BUSY age.

    Love you,

  4. I love that she's low crawling. That's so cute! Seems like she's finding plenty to entertain her. It's great that you're documenting everything here. She'll be off and running before you know it. Tell her to stop growing so fast! Ha!

    Love you,
