Bodhi is a very serious little thing. While she does smile and giggle and coo she is always taking in and assessing the situation. She is a watcher, our little professeressa.
She does not like to be tickled. You might get one laugh out of it and then she will start to cry. But make a funny face and talk in a goofy voice and she is in hysterics. She also likes to be jiggled and bounced.
Bodhi loves toys! And absolutely every one goes into her mouth. She loves giving and getting kisses, although hers are decidedly wet and open mouthed.
She loves to snuggle, but on her terms. She wants to be held the way she wants to be held and you best figure it out quick. Once you find the magic position, usually up on your shoulder, she will stay there forever.
While she could snuggle forever she is also perfectly content to hang in her bouncy seat to watch and play by herself. She really digs her play mat as well, and the elephant hanging from it often sends her into peals of laughter. She can roll from her back to her tummy, but she doesn't like to do it. She hates being on her stomach! Once there she will put her face into the playmate and scream until someone comes and gets her. Needless to say there is not a lot of tummy time. She cries so infrequently that we can't stand to her our little mei mei screaming.
She absolutely loves her Daddy. Her face lights up at the sight of him. When he holds her to his chest she will nuzzle her head into his face hard.
She is finally taking a bottle and is a little piggy! She is 15lbs and has folds and dimples simply everywhere. Her little cheeks are fit to burst. And while she finds nursing too much work now that she has the bottle she still wants to in order to comfort herself when she gets sleepy or overtired.
So that is our little Bodhi Mae in a nutshell. She is sweet as can be, quiet most times, but does like to sing and jabber at home. We cannot wait for everyone to meet her!
