I have a story about that actually... Jer was in the office working while I was off running errands. Ada was sitting in the office doorway watching Seung Mo go from his bedroom to the bathroom and back several times. After watching him for a while, when he closed a door she would walk up to it and start knocking till he opened the door. Then he'd go to the other room and close the door and she'd start knocking on that one till he opened the door.
For her birthday he gave her pink legos... and if he came home while I was making dinner and Ada was throwing a tantrum, he'd get down on the floor and play with her until I was done.
He's a good guy and I wish him the best!

Another thing that recently happened, we were watching Kung Fu Panda and in the trailers is one for the Madagascar 2 movie... Ada will watch a little bit of movies but usually gets distracted before to long... but not with this trailer! She was so excited about it that she even started giggling... I've never even seen the first one, but maybe I should if it's something that Ada would enjoy.

So I don't know if anybody read about when Ada and her friend Lizzy hijacked the graham cracker box... but we had those same friends over tonight to play games... so Ada and Lizzy were playing again. When we finished our game... we all looked over and saw that they had completely emptied four boxes of Capri Suns onto the floor and had detached all of the straws from the pouches... luckily they hadn't tried stepping on any of them or anything... but we just had to get a picture... it was too funny.

At least three months ago, she was playing with her cousins Aubrey and Devin. They all wanted the same toys. Devin got them by taking them from the other person and throwing them out of everyone elses reach. Aubrey got them in her strong grasp and wouldn't let go of them. Ada got them by pretending to not want them. Aubrey was playing with the one that Ada wanted and wouldn't let go of it, so Ada picked up another toy and started playing with it... I thought, "Oh good, she's learning not to fight over the toys." Then when Ada was sure that Aubrey had seen the toy that she'd been playing with she carefully laid it to the one side. When Aubrey went for that toy... Ada took the opportunity to get the toy that they had originally been fighting over. My mom's comment was, "I don't want to play chess with her when she grows up."
The other story is less about a toy, and more about playing with cousin Grace's eyes. She had just decided that eyes were really neat and she wanted to touch or gouge out everyone's eyes. She was sitting next to her cousin Grace and saw that Grace had nice big eyes. She tried playing with them. Becca told her "No", so Ada stopped. Then she reached for Grace again... Becca told her "No", so she stopped. Ada started watching the TV and without looking away from it, she started reaching for Grace again... So I guess that just because she's not looking Grace's way means that she's not touching her eyes right?
The other day we were at Jer's parents house past 1 am. I was carrying a sleeping Ada out to the car. It was kind of funny because she had the biggest frown on her face as we left... whether she was having a nightmare or just didn't like being moved in the middle of the night, I don't know. But, I started whispering to her to try to get her a little more relaxed and while I was talking to her she reached out her hand to my face and started saying, "Mama." My chest about burst with joy knowing that she trusted me and that she knew me even in her dreams!

Ada was pretty funny today. I was trying to distract her for a minute while daddy left the room... so I threw a pillow at her. She smiled, picked it up, and handed it back to me. We did that for a good couple of minutes... I never thought I'd be having a pillow fight with my 10 month old.
This entry was actually inspired by Becca... it is just amazing how much babies change! Here's an example... This first picture was taken Dec 2007...
And this second picture is of the same 5 babies 8 months later. I'd say they've changed a bit don't you?
