M(ataya): Pretty good, Mom. I am really enjoying all of the new things I can do.
Mom: Me too! What are some of those things?
M: Well, I can sit up all by myself and I am getting really close to crawling. With a lot of determination, I can get any where I want to go!
M: I know, mom, but it is so fun.
Mom: I think I a going to be in big trouble the more mobile you get. How is eating going?
Mom: Applesauce does make things go down much easier, doesn't it. And what things do you like to play with?
M: I really all of my toys, but especially things that make music or a noise when you shake them, like my shape sorter and my picnic basket. I also like to look at my dolls and chew on their hands. Books are fun, but mostly for eating. And I like to do a wiggly dance anytime music is on.
Mom: We all like to see you dance and smile. I will let you get back at it!
