This is most likely going to be a three part mini-series on some of the latest and greatest Lamp developments.
I've wanted to show pictures of her holding a book with her foot and flipping the pages with her hand. I can't tell you what a cool moment this was when I suddenly realized what she was doing.
I've wanted to show pictures of her coloring, one of her favorite activities. She colors with the aid of a wrist band I made her.
And I've wanted to show pictures of her using her wrist band to release the marker, flip through her coloring book, then with a flick of her wrist, grab said marker again and resume coloring.
I've wanted to show pictures of how she likes to clean the windows (or any surface really) with wipes. Wipes mama, wipes.
Or even just show some pictures of the awesome ways she figures out how to hold things.
But the novelty of these things has sorta come and gone. In one sense these things are milestones I never imagined, but in another sense she's just like any other kid...she's figuring her world out. That's what kids do. Only in her case, I'm not showing her what to do or how to do it. This is all her own amazingness. It's true that we all love our kids and think everything they do is amazing anyway, whether it's learning to walk or pooping in the toilet. But I have to say, watching her navigate this world in a completely original, authentic little Lampy way is awe-inspiring and awe-mazing. But like any kid, these newly acquired talents have come too quickly to actually document each one.
But there is one thing that tops the cool-things-I-want-to-tell-you-about-list for the past couple months. It's her feet. Lamp is doing cool, cool stuff with her feet and I can't get over it. She grabs, holds and picks up stuff with her feet. With her toes. Like her fishy crackers. Which she loves to pick up one by one and put them in a bowl.
And if you thought drawing with a wrist band was cool, then hold onto your hats....
My daughter draws with her feet ya'll.
