Just Another Day

Today has been quite an interesting day with Bella. This morning I was woken up by her in a very different way. Usually she will wake up, play in her crib for a while, and then fuss a little until I decide to roll out of bed and get her. Well this morning when she woke up she immediately wanted out of the crib and let me know by two very distinct (and demanding) "MAMA!" "MMMMAMA!" That was very out of the norm for her so I got up and got her out. As I was changing her diaper she wanted to get up... so she told me..."ut..ut" (which in her language is "up"). Then I took her downstairs and my mother-in-law was in the kitchen. The minute I walked in the room Bella shouted "NANA!"
Now Bella has known these words, so it wasn't surprising that she said them, but what was so shocking to me was how she was using them. She will say things for no particular reason and in no particular order, but today she woke up and POOF; she knew the way they should be used, and she had to show Mama. I thought that was first that is. She would no stop talking!!! Granted most of it made no sense at all, but the rest of the day she wanted to show me all her words (and in a very loud voice). The one day I have a major headache right?
If that wasn't enough....
Tonight while I was feeding Bella dinner, she decided to take the spoon and feed herself. Usually I will not let her because of the obvious reasons. I don't mind cleaning, but she's only one years old... its not messy when she feeds herself.... its a tornado of flying food, and anyone (or anything) in her path better beware. As I have not been feeling well, I had a temporary lapse of judgment, and I let my one year old spoon feed herself green mushy veggies. Yes I admit it, but she actually did very well! She ate all of those mushy veggies, and started acting very silly. The two pictures were taken one after the other in the sequence shown... one smile... the next... who knows!
