Josie waters the baby

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009 by Jen

Just this week Josie seems to have started to understand the idea that her baby Cabbage Patch Doll is a representation for a real baby. This also came along with her saying the word baby and signing it appropriately. Watch her ‘take care’ of her baby. After the video she threw the baby on the floor — she didn’t learn it from me.

Jumping Josie

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009 by Jen

Last week the 2 year old I babysit came over and showed Josie how to jump off of things. Mostly the exercise mat which is pretty high for Josie, she pretty much fell down every time. Instead she made this new game with the drawer from her toy chest. This video was taken after she’d already been doing it for about five minutes, so she had done a great job tiring herself out.

Josie likes pesto

Sunday, July 26th, 2009 by Jen

I made some home-made pasta with pesto today without pine nuts. Turns out Josie likes it. Seems to follow her general trend of liking anything I put lots of cheese and garlic into!

She is a great eater at home and whenever I’m making the food. She doesn’t do quite so well at restaurants unless we order extremely plain food, so we always bring an avocado as backup. Not sure what’s up with that.

Sunscreen queen

Sunday, July 26th, 2009 by Jen

Josie really seems to like sunscreen. Really really likes it. If she can get her hands on it, she brings it to us and rubs her body to tell us to put it on her. Even if we already put it on. One of these mornings she took it a little far perhaps, she took one look at her greek yogurt, the thick white stuff, and smeared it into her legs. Ick

Here’s just a funny photo of Josie and Jane, a two year old I’ve been babysitting some occasional days. Josie thinks Jane is fantastic — so fantastic she even went to shake Jane awake from her nap before I intervened.

Old Birthday Party Photos

Saturday, July 25th, 2009 by Jen

Clearing out the backlog again, I’ve got some fantastic and fun photos from Josie’s birthday party (um almost two months ago). Our friend Sharona took the black and white ones.

New dance move

See Josie shake her head no in the middle when she does something she knows she’s not supposed to (grab the camera). At the end, see the hot new dance move, now she has three dances!

This girl knows where she’s going

Here’s a video just showing Josie doing her thing, out on the sidewalk after a nice dinner out. Gratuitous parent’s just thinking their kid is so cute doing anything.

Playing alone

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009 by Jen

The Sears’ book said it would happen, and it finally is starting to: Josie can spend a few minutes playing by herself. I have the video to prove it. You lucked out and get to see her make her car sound while playing with her vehicle! She does a good job putting her MegaBloks together now too.

Caught George in the act

I’ve heard of puppy love, but this? (that is a lion doll by the way)
