Liliana is really moving around. She is rolling easily from her back to her front to her back and can roll back the other way too, if she doesn’t get too cranky about being on her tummy first. Over the Memorial Day weekend David and I drove Liliana over to visit David’s parents in Idaho. We had her lying down on the floor under her “activity gym” and watched as she rolled back and forth and eventually ended up on her back, turned 180 degrees from where she had begun. Pretty soon I won’t be able to turn my back, even for a second, because she’ll be off and rolling away! She’s also getting pretty good and pulling herself into a sitting position by just holding onto David’s or my pointer fingers. She’s a strong little girl and it appears that she’s in a big hurry to move and grow.
Yesterday my nephew, Mason, came over and spent the day with Liliana and I. He and Liliana just stared at each other and tried to touch each other’s faces and hands. Mason managed to pull Liliana’s binky out of her mouth by the cord (her “binky bling”, as I call it). Later, possibly in retaliation, Liliana rolled on top of Mason and started checking out his face with her fingers. I happened to be working in the kitchen and was made aware of the situation by the sudden howl my nephew let out. When I came into the living room, I started laughing and quickly moved Liliana. She seemed to be oblivious to the fact that Mason was upset about her laying on him and poking at his mouth and eyes. I wish I had taken a picture, but I’m pretty sure Mason is glad I didn’t take the time to go pull out the camera while he was being attacked. Liliana and Mason enjoyed the rest of the day together, sucking on each other’s toys and observing one another. Liliana hopes her cousin will come back again soon!
