Tulia Sept 30

I’m back dating this to the 30th even though today is the 4th of October because the photos are from September.

Tulia has changed yet again.  We went to a San Jose community festival.  She got to check out a horse and play on the playground.  Tulia has started climbing everything.

Tulia points at things she wants and if she doesn’t get them, she throws a tantrum.  She is eating finger foods now and will occasionally eat what we are eating.  Tulia also cut her first tooth.  I tried to get a close up but it didn’t turn out.

Tulia also says “sat” as what’s that… Tulia also switched from two naps a day to one!!!  That was a huge step.

My mom taught her to clap her hands then cover her ears on command in Chinese!!!  It was amazing.  Tulia will stand on her own for a few seconds as well…

Tulia Sept 13

Just yesterday Tulia was able to stand on her own for a few seconds.  It’s really amazing to see her progress this fast.

She is now eating real food (soft cut up foods) like green beans, cheerios, banana, peaches, pears, rice, etc… It’s also amazing how strong she is now.  (see picture of her holding herself up on the foot of the bed.)

I converted the BOB stroller that we have into a bike trailer.  I widened the axel by 50% and fabricated a front bike mount with the help of Todd.  The front mount uses parts from a mount kit for another trailer brand, but also with custom fabbed pieces.  Tulia enjoys riding in the back, because she gets to see dad work his but off.

We are also starting to teach her how to sign basic needs like food, sleep, etc…  Tulia talks quite a bit now.  In addition to saying dada, baba, mama, and dit, dit ,dit, she also says wsssttt.  (baby for what’s that)  She really says that when she sees something interesting.

She also now waves at people that wave to her.  I know I promised some video,  so for now here is some camera phone video.  The quality is bad, but their cute anyway.  I will get the good stuff on soon.
