My daughter has ALOT of patience for a near 6 month old. There is some stalk of flowers in my inlaws house with red packets hanging from the branches. I carried her nearer seeing she was interested in the swaying red packets. When she was near enough, she tried to grasp the red packets. And it swaying and all that, made it tougher for her to grab between her fore finger and her thumb. but she tried and tried and didn't show any real signs of exasperation. And she got it about 3-4 times in that 30 min or so I stood there with her. Everyone who was watching her commented that she was so patient and determined to catch the red packet.
Miss High Tolerance to Pain
The nanny accidentally clipped little missy's skin when cutting her finger nails last Friday. She gave a yelp but didn't cry. It looks deep coz it has been 2 days now and it is still red and 'angry'. Also, her bum is having a bad case of diaper rash and apart from when I wash it with warm water and apply lotion, the girl does not show any other kind of fuss or irritation.
She wants to grab everything she sees. And anything as always goes into her mouth after looking at it careful front and back, top and bottom. And she pushes herself out of your grasp to get what she wants. It frustrates her like mad when you try to hold her back.
She gives a good chuckle when we play with her. And smile sheepishly at you when you play peekaboo with her and hides herself in the shoulder of the person carrying her.
And the other day, I was blowing warm kisses into her neck and she was giggling away. After a few kisses, when she saw me come close to give another kiss, she put her hands in front of me and shouted playfully. Somewhat like a kid who could talk would do while saying "Nooooo" yet still wanting you to play with them. What a reation!
Ever heard the song with this lyrics 'You're my inny minny minnie mo lover'? Christopher likes this song and claims they are singing about his little sisiter. As in Min-Yi = minnie!
