Keifer's latest "thing" to do is to play with puppets. She received a finger puppet
a few months ago from my Auntie Barb (a monkey) and has shown an interest in using the puppet to give kisses out to her other toys and baby dolls. Well, mommy took home her own personal puppets from work: an M&M puppet (I call him "Mr. M"), a monster from the Target $1 bin section, and a piggie. Keifer LOVES her puppets and frequently asks "where puppet go?", and will call for her monster or "M".
Daddy noticed this past weekend that Keifer was having her puppets give lots of kisses, and yesterday on K's note from Elaine's, Elaine said that Keifer took an oven mitt, placed it on her hand, and was blowing kisses to all her friends with it. Ahh, what a doll.
This AM, I could hear her in her crib as I was getting ready for work, and I heard her smooching away in there "mmmmm mwah, mmmm mwah". I peeked in unbeknownst to her, and she was smooching her baby doll, smack on the doll's lips. Then she was using the "motherese" tone to her voice and talking to her baby. My heart, my heart! I so hope she is this kind and sweet to her real baby come June!
