It's been a while since I've had a Simone update. She's nearly a year old now. What's she up to???
She loves to stand - can't get up there on her own, but she'll hang on to your leg or the ottoman for a long time. She still doesn't want to crawl but is starting to do the butt scoot (she goes backwards, kind of like a squid). Simone is getting more and more ticklish, and loves being thrown in the air. She's also beginning to play hide and seek - actually hiding herself.
Today Mary went walking with a friend, and Simone and I tagged along. We were walking in a new neighborhood that had a pretty cool looking playground, so Simone and I went off to investigate. It turns out, they had an infant swing set. Swing Simone, Swing!
Here are some of the pictures - she loved it.
