In just the past few days, M has figured out consonants (‘Dadadaydayba-pbbbfft!’), how to put toys into other people’s mouths (a bigger developmental leap than it might seem), and how to drink out of a straw. She’d tried that last one several times in the past with no success, but today she wanted to taste some of my smoothie, and — tada — no problem. It was only a handful of months ago that she was a little lump, and today I looked in the rear-view mirror to see her turning the pages of a book in her car seat. Babies, you guys. Highly recommended!
