My sister gave Isabella a couple of very cute finger puppets for Christmas, a hedgehog and an ostrich. At first Bella would have nothing to do with the ostrich chick, though she loved the hedgehog. Now she’s pulled the ostrich out of the toy basket and is using it to scrub the floor. Poor little bird! I have no idea where this behavior is coming from. Kids are so odd.
Bella’s other new trick today is playing peek-a-boo with daddy. She pulled one of her jackets out of a pile and started holding the sleeve up in front of her face. Dom was puzzled at first, then realized she was playing and started saying “peek-a-boo” to her. How cute is that?
Bella is really loving the freedom of picking out her own toys from the basket rather than bing dependent on mom’s selection. So fun to see her gaining independence and self-sufficiency.
