Giving herself a kiss in the mirror!
Kyra loves looking in the mirror. She thinks it's hilarious! Every time she sees herself, she gets all giggly and smiley. She also likes to give herself kisses in the mirror. It's pretty cute to see!
Kyra got an early Birthday present recently. Grandma and Grandpa got Kyra this adorable faux leather chair, which she has happily been enjoying in our living room. She still needs help climbing up into the chair, but she's figured out how to take little leaps to get down and out of the chair.
She loves to sit in her chair to watch her Baby Signing Time DVDs. After a few months of watching her signing videos, she finally gave us her first sign a few days ago. While watching the "Strollin" segment of one of the DVDs, which deals with all of the various things a baby might see while outside on a stroller walk, Kyra very clearly signed "grass" during the "grass" part. It was the most amazing thing we've ever seen! And today, while Geoff was signing "Thank You" to Kyra after her breakfast, she copied him and signed "Thank You" right back at him.
It's been so fascinating to watch her learn. She's understanding so much more lately! We ask to her find various toys and she quickly looks at them, points at them, and/or picks them up. She loves to mimic our movements too. She's getting smarter and smarter each day! She's cruising around like crazy lately and her speed is picking up, but still no unassisted walking yet. There's no rush on that, as far as I'm concerned!
Less than a month until Kyra's first Birthday. Numerous times throughout the day, I find myself wondering how her first year could've flown by so fast. It feels like her newborn days were over so quickly. I wish I could memorize every little moment, but unfortunately they fly by in the blink of an eye. We're having so much fun with our little girl, and she continues to amaze us everyday.
