Bye Bye Baby
This is Mali's official last day as a baby. Tomorrow she will be one. How the fuck is that possible?
She is celebrating by taking the first nap in our bed (her bed too) in recent memory. Consolidating naps, she is. Oh well, it's not as though she's ever napped in a manner that was in any way useful to me, so she might as well cut down.
Also last night she took her first step, or "stagger" as witness Ep would say.
After we got home from a very fun though completely draining Thxgiving at JP's house and were greeted by the cats, I said, "Hey, Mali, say 'meow' to the kitty."
"MEOW!!!!" yelled Mali. So she's sentient after all.
A lot of kids later diagnosed with autism are happy bright and chatty up until age 14 or 15 months, but I have to say I am feeling optimistic. She is a very different baby than Leelo was at the same age.
