Walking + Talking

Whoa. Time is flying by. She went from taking cautious steps, to running (like Naruto) and pacing like an old man, zero to a hundred real quick. Things are happening so quickly that I can’t seem to write fast enough to keep up. There are lots of times where I look at her and I’m like, I can’t believe I have a toddler.

She’s got both her molars and 4 top, 4 bottom, and her pediatrician said her canines are coming in. She can, for the most part, chew anything. It’s scary. Mostly because I am worried about how to take care of it since she doesn’t really know how to
