Marge tries to repeat sounds after us and says “ko” for a cat (the word “cat” sounds like [‘koshka] in Russian) and says “pti” for birds (the word “birds” sounds like [‘ptici] in Russian). She imitates the sound of a fall with “ba-ba-h”.
She puts things in my hand or somewhere (gives and takes) and tries to stack plastic toy glasses.
She figured out how to play with a track — throws a ball inside. She flicks carton books.
She can be frightened by a sudden loud laugh.
Finally, she can normally swallow real food, but still prefers milk over it. Actually I think she has swallowed more of a paper than of the food this month.
She tries to stand up on her feet while propping with hands too (sorry for this awkward picture, but it’s the only one that illustrates this skill). And I’m so grateful that we don’t have a baby crib. Marge has much less temptation of standing up on her feet, which she doesn’t yet at all.
Still loves watching birds!
She is my girl — shows an interest in a camera at her wee age!
This is Marge with her grandmother in the New Year’s Eve. By the way, Marge was the only kid who woke up at 12 o’clock and watched fireworks with me. She was afraid of those at the start, but her interest overcame her fear pretty soon.
Marge flew by plane for the first time this month! Of course, it won’t be something she’ll remember, but she was decent traveller and by no means didn’t spoil our vacation. I wrote about our journey and shared a lot of photos here and here (and there will be more). And she was very happy to see her siblings after returning!
Here she is glad to see her sister for the first time after the flight.
Here she plays her favourite peek-a-boo game with her big brother.
