My daughter has quirks. Doesn't everyone, though?
Sometimes they're cute and sometimes they're just weird.
Most of the time they are changing. For example, when she was about 4 months old she would do this weird growling/grunting sound. It was funny and weird and noisy, but after awhile she stopped doing it. Now and then it pops back out to visit, but she's upgraded to bubbling gurgle noises and word-like sounds.
Currently, some of her quirks include:
- During bath time, one of the first things that she does is stick a
washcloth in her mouth. Usually she holds on to it, but sometimes
she'll just leave it there to hang out of her mouth while her hands do other things.
- When she gets tired she scratches at her head. She's done this ever since she was around a month old. Sometimes it drives me crazy, especially when her nails are long because I have yet to trim them. Sometimes, however, it is incredibly cute. Especially when she is lying in her crib trying to fall asleep.
- She is enamored with the chickens in our backyard. She could watch them all day. Okay, so maybe it's not a quirk...
- She likes to kick with her foot. All. The. Time. She'll be lying in her crib awake (either trying to sleep or just waking up) and her foot will kick the mattress. She'll be hanging out on the floor during tummy time and her foot will kick. It especially kicks when there is something there that she feels on her foot.
I'm always worried that she's going to break her toe from kicking the ground so hard, but she has yet to do so. Do I foresee a soccer player in our future?! Yes, please!
