Mercedes the Growing Weed

Mercedes is never short on attention. I spend most of my day trying to give her a little space. But she always loves when the kids are around her. I thought this was especially cute when Avri would read to her and then show her the pictures. A little teacher in the making.

She is a side sleeper, which I find funny. When you lay her down she is not happy until she rolls onto her side and burrows her face into a blanket or something. I thought she was sleeping and when I went to take the picture she peeked at me.
She has also found that toys are amazingly fun little objects. She grabs for everything now. Her favorite thing is the phone (the real one) but she likes pretty much everything now. She is an amazing little roller now and she windmills when I put her on the floor. She will turn like 270 degrees around on the floor. She thinks it is really fun.
She also enjoys the Luv Sac, but I feel like I have to watch her really closely on it so she doesn't burrow too deep and suffocate.
She found her tongue again and it is her way of flirting. I don't have a picture of that yet, I need to do that. She will stick her tongue out if she wants attention and then grin great big when she gets it, but the tongue stays out the whole time. And today she realized that she has ears. I love watching kids this age, it is so much fun to see their growth every day! She is my comfort child, she is always good for a smile and a laugh and a good little snuggle.

Merrill is the same way with sleep. He seriously can't sleep without something completely over his face. When he was younger I always checked on him to make sure he was still breathing!
