Evani update

Its been a while since I last posted an update on Evani. So for all my friends and family who haven't seen her in a while and I know you read my blog but you're just too lazy to comment (you're related/aquainted to me after all), here goes:

She is able to repeat plenty of words after me and can point to fish, tree, igloo, house and camel on her Ikea play mat. I was personally impressed with igloo and camel. She loves playing with cars. She is addicted to her bottle and I am scared she's going to take the longest time weaning out of it. She has learned to hug and kiss which totally melts my heart when she does it without being asked. However, the clever little thing that she is, she sometimes uses that tactic when she doesn't want to go to sleep. She has been climbing up the stairs for a while and has recently learned to crawl down. She calls both Shomeek and me 'baba' which actually means dad. For a 15 month old who can say camel, you would think she would be able to call me 'mamma'. She loves splashing around in the bathtub but hates the process of being changed. She carries my purse around the house saying 'ta ta' and loves being out and about. The cute things set aside, one fine day she woke up and turned into this temper tantrum throwing alien. She definitely lets you know when she doesn't like something or maybe wants to get hold of the keys or remote. Bathroom doors need to be kept close at all times since one day I did catch her in the act of dipping my cell phone into the toilet bowl and then licking it. She thrives on being independent and wants to do everything on her own. Meal times end up with more food on her entire body and floor than in her tummy.

Here is a clip of the calm right before the storm ~
