Finally clapping!

Well B turns 13 months old today and she finally decided to clap. HAHA! She runs, has pretty much all of her teeth, laughs hysterically, shakes her head yes and no, says "whats that?" a million times a day, and will go get anything (lovey, milk, ball) if you ask her to. But, up until yesterday the girl refused to clap. We would end up looking like idiots trying to get her to clap and it was just amusing. Haha. Finally, though she gets it, and thinks its pretty darn funny :)

She also is experiencing quite a bit of stranger anxiety lately. Poor kiddo. I thought we had escaped it but not so much. If I'm around, no way jose, are you going to be able to hold her. And -- if I take her out in public she clings to me for dear life. Grandpa Steve is the only one she really wants to be around just as much as me, and we've decided that could be because he is like a big toy to her, haha! She DOES love her Mimi (my mom), her daddy and her Grandma Becca-- but she is definitely a Mommy's girl these days. I can't say I mind it-- most of the time-- but sometimes I just want to be able to pee in peace!

An example is yesterday. I went to the chiropractor because I messed up my neck somehow. I took Bella with me and she SCREAMED her head off every time I put her down. So she pretty much sat on my lap the whole time-- and let me just say for the record that getting adjusted with a 13 month old on your lap is not easy. Unfortunately for me-- part of the reason I've hurt my neck so much is from carrying my 22 pound child around all day.

She is a doll though. And I couldn't love her more.

In other news.... I'm stretched pretty thin these days with all of my various jobs/hobbies/committments and so I'm trying to prioritize again. Its not an easy decision really, but I have got to figure something out so that I'm not pulled in 25 different directions.
