Top observations of the month:
1. OBSESSION with the cat! She showed interest in him at the beginning of the month and so I called him over and helped her pet him. She was so excited! But now the minute she sees or hears him, she starts going crazy trying to get to him: kicking her legs, throwing her arms around, screaming at him. It is hilarious! She also loves the dog and tries to grab her and eat her every time she walks close-by. The funniest thing is that Susanna laughs hysterically when the dog and cat play with each other (usually the cat sits up on a chair and swats at the dog and the dog sits and barks and lunges at the cat). She even laughs anytime she just hears the dog barking in another room! The following picture was taken when the dog was barking loudly at the cat beside her. You can tell Karis has her hands over her ears but Susanna thinks it is hilarious!
5. She is still a Mama's girl but sure does smile when she sees her Daddy!
6. She is VERY interested in food. I have not given her anything yet and am in no hurry since she is nursing well and often but she watches my every bite and will sometimes holler at my food like she wants some. Maybe I'll give her a banana for Thanksgiving and let her feast some, too :)
7. Laughs very easily and often. I love this stage! She is just so happy to see me and will just laugh and laugh when I play with her. Such a sweet, happy baby!
