My baby girl needs some air time

I think I figured out why 2nd kids never get as many pictures or baby albums or even basic documentation of their babyhood. We have probably 17 hours of my son's first year on tape and maybe 1 hour of my youngest. First, you've already seen all the cute stuff babies can do and second, it's not nearly as cute when compared to older kids who can talk. However, my little girl did do some cute things this weekend.

Being that we're still furniture-less, the stereo tuner is sitting on the floor. My daughter crawled over to it, turned the volume up and started dancing. She thought that was great fun and kept turning it louder and louder until I got over to her, thankfully before she blew the speakers out.

In the bath, she's standing up and pulling the knob that turns on the shower. Luckily, the water's off when she does it, but I'm thinking one of these days I should let her do it with the water on. She'd probably think that was great fun as well.

My daughter likes to imitate whatever we say. I asked if anyone wanted ice cream after dinner and everyone said "I do" and she repeated "I do"! And she's said "Josie", the dog's name. But her favorite is still "dada". She'll point to me or my husband and repeat "dada" over and over. Still can't convince her that I'm mama.

She also took her first steps last Friday. And her latest is shaking her head no. It's really cute because she gets her arms in on the act. Her head moves one way and her torso and arms the other. She's such a happy baby and everyone loves to be around her.

She sounds adorable! You need to post a pic. My baby girl is a big 1 year old today. I can't believe how fast it went.

You had asked me to ask you five questions last week, so here they are:

1. How and when did you first become aware of blogging?
2. What inspired you to start your own?
3. How should a childless couple eating dinner in a relatively grown-up place deal with a nearby table with two out-of-control children completely disrupting the entire restaurant?
4. Is loud sighing inappropriate?
5. What kind of car do you drive and do you think it represents your personality well?
