I want to touch that.
I’m going to grab that.
Can I reach it? *stretches* *cries*
I want that. *Mama moves her or it away*
Now, I want that. *Mama repeats move*
Does this make noise? *shakes object*
Tastes like blue.
Does this make noise? *bangs things together*
I want to nurse. *tugs on mama’s shirt*
I want to see that. *Flips, twists, and turns..still latched*
What’s that noise?
I should grab mama’s hair.
I want to taste it.
I don’t want to miss anything! No nap!
Some days… I just don’t know what to do. She’s soooo curious. She wants to touch everything and put everything in her mouth. Nothing in this house is safe! She can be on the floor, on my lap, or in my arms. If she is near anything she tries to reach for it. She’s quick too!
I never thought I’d spend so much time trying to redirect her or constantly try to move things out of her reach. It can be quite exhausting. Does it mean we need to do more babyproofing? Quite possibly.
This post was inspired by the following chart found on Mammalingo. I expanded upon it because she definitely is a grabby grabber right now!
