on this post a while and she's inching closer and closer to six... Sigh.

She rolled over for the first time in the past week, from belly to back. She wasn't really trying to, but has done it a few times since. She will hold a sitting position for a while, but hasn't gotten into it by herself yet.

She's coming out of the stranger shyness, but in general I think she's just an easily overstimulated and shy child. She likes people one on one or in small groups, but gets nervous and shy in a crowd. Probably a future introvert though obviously too soon to tell. With small amounts of people she can slowly warm up and soon be okay with them. At home with just me or Ryan though she's always a bubbly delight lately.

She's giggling, playing, chattering away. She's got new sounds all the time. I don't get to capture it as much as I'd like because she sees the camera and changes. She also changes if she senses someone else there, even my parents on webcam, getting more reserved. Like something that would get her pealing in laughter might elicit a half smile. In public she's by far better behaved if she's in her ergo but a few times now I've brought a mat and put her on it if she's getting restless being worn and it's been okay. She'll cry immediately though if I put her on it if she's not feeling restless. So I have to read her mood.

She went on her first auto rickshaw ride this month! And she was fine! A little nervous, but no crying. Ryan's been hesitant to let her, but she did good and has done it a few times since.
She is so close to crawling. She could care less about sitting (she can, supported, but isn't trying to) or rolling over, but she is determined to crawl. She was rotating in a counterclockwise circle. Now she'll rotate clockwise as well. Basically she just hasn't found her balance, moving left and right with equal force. Once she does, she'll be on the move!

I just adore her. My darling Dreamer!
