Itsy Bitsy spider never fails to make a child smile.... and maybe even giggle just a little.
When you have a 17 month old a dinner table you must always clear the table of any objects that are within an arms length.
With Grace, you must clear two-arms lengths.
A glass knocked over by a 17 month old holding chopsticks will break. Oops.
Don't let her size fool you... she is quite the spitfire! She WILL let you know that she does not want something... mostly by chucking it across the room. and don't try again... because she will just throw it further.
We weren't sure if this was myth or reality... but it is indeed real. A child with an unrepaired cleft palate will sneeze rice out their noses. And is a good way to make a table full of 18 tired people laugh. oh and her sneeze is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever heard.
As warned by blogger friend Emily... don't believe the reports.. The report said she only had four bottles of formula a day (and some crackers for snack). Last night she ate a cup of fried rice, a dumpling and about 50 cheerios (by the fist-full). Clearly she has eaten from both chopsticks and a spoon.
They key to a good night sleep in China is having your daughter within arms reach and hearing her breathe all night long.
I'm pretty sure this is the first morning of her life that she has two people standing over her crib not-so-patiently waiting for her to wake up so we can see her sweet face and play with her.
