Graduation part 1

My little girl is growing up... It's crazy how the little things make you stop and wonder where the time has gone. This past week Malaia has graduated from high chair to booster seat. She simply refused to sit in her high chair for more than 2-3 minutes, before she would stand up and try to climb over the edge of the seat. And yes we did have straps for the high chair, but it wasn't worth the screaming if she was locked in. So we'd take her and set her on the ground and she would run around to the other side of the table, pull out a chair, climb up and sit down like she just wanted to sit the way that mom and dad do. We're still in the process of teaching her not to climb on the table. If your not fast enough with giving her a sippy cup for instance, she whips up onto the table, crawls over and grabs it. It's slowly starting to sink in, so hopefully not too much longer before she stays in her seat.
I mentioned in a post earlier this week that she's climbed out of her crib. So today is the day that we transform the crib into a day bed with guardrails. No good will come of this. I definitely see some sleepless nights over the next couple of weeks. With her just wandering around the upstairs. But at least it will be safer than her falling from the top of the crib.
And lastly this past week she's started giving hugs. Yes she's given hugs before but I've taught her how to give a bear hug. So now I can actually get her to growl and a give a super long hard hug. It's great. Although I was upstairs the other day and heard her growling at Ang and she had no idea why Malaia was making that sound. I chuckled and explained a short time later.
Can't wait to see what comes next!

  1. Wow, I can't even imagine getting to that point. Although we just had to drop her crib a few notches in order to keep her from standing up and flipping over. They really do grow way to fast.
