Today, Edith suddenly figured out how to remove and reinsert her bottle. She can’t quite manage it on her own yet, but she learned how to pull the bottle away from her mouth, and then how to nudge it back toward her mouth while making guppy faces toward it to indicate where she wanted it to go.
I was thrilled at her brilliance! “You’re so smart, Edith!” I crowed! I was pretty sure this was early, developmentally speaking. She also figured out how to roll from her back to her tummy today. She was killing it, knocking down milestones left and right!
Then, Edith removed and reinserted her bottle approximately 500 more times, all requiring my help and both of my hands.
My delight in this new achievement swiftly waned. I would actually be fine with a stupid child.
