Comments About Coraline

Coraline (aka Cora, Cor Cor, Miss C., Littlest Pea, Baby Pterodactyl, Cora Coo)

Coraline is the wacky one. She is always ready to strike a pose for the camera. But she's quite bashful and coy. If you ask her, she'll agree, and either bury her head into your shoulder, or bow her head low to the ground. She cries often at night, but is quickly appeased by her pacifier.

She hasn't started crawling yet, but she is able to go forward a few inches. But after that, she promptly lays down on her belly, and starts trying to swim to her destination. I keep telling her that she's in the shallow end, and to put her feet down. When she sits, she still keeps her arms outstretched for balance, never wanting to fall.

She's finally figured out the joys of eating solids. She is a little slow with eating rice cakes, however, having to glance at her siblings for instructions. While she used to be the lightest, she now seems to have a slight edge on Arthur. Water, again, ranks high on her list of favorite foods.

She likes to suck on the fruit-filled "lollipops," and enjoys playing with her click-clack caterpillar. Favorite playtime activities include crinkling plastic cereal bags, and scritch-scratching her hand on other textures. She dislikes the stroller, instead preferring to ride with Mom in the Ergo. And again, she is the one most addicted to her pacifier.

It's funny that you call her your "baby pterodactyl". I have one of those too! ::haha:: Hailey screeches at the top of her lungs! Too funny!
