What Comes Next?

Filed under: Videos — Luke @ 6:08 am

Mara has been progressing quite a bit lately. We are still amazed at her capacity to learn and what she is able to show us she knows every day. There are a lot of people out there wondering when she will be walking. Well, we will get to that.

First, we took some video last week of her latest skills. You will see that she has gotten adept at maneuvering her mail cart. This has helped her practice walking without Mom or Dad’s assistance. Just before this shot she walked the cart up to Kiwi’s cage to say “hi Kiwi.”

Next you will see that she can get up the stairs quite easily, then she will show you what she knows about her blocks. Last she plays with some bowling pins that she got at Christmas time, and only after watching tape does Dad realize that she said “Dog” about 5 times without me acknowledging it because I didn’t notice what the blue pin is. A dog. As Mom indicated in an earlier post she has gotten quite a vocabulary. You will see it here a little. Notice how she says “please.” She only gets out the “P” and “S.”

  1. Isn’t it funny how we sometimes miss the obvious? Her vocab is expanding quickly! Let’s hope she doesn’t pick up “the bomb” from Steph anytime soon!

  2. I will disown her if the bomb comes out of her mouth and she isn’t talking about poo. Just kidding!

    Can’t wait to meet your little one. Hang in there!
