It is quite fun to watch Adelle learn and grow. The past month has brought the use of a new facial expression…the scowl. She started scowling a couple of weeks ago, and it really caught us by surprise when we first saw it! Since that time, we’ve come to realize that “the scowl” doesn’t mean she’s angry, but happens when she’s really trying to figure something out. For instance, when she meets anyone new, she will scowl at them for the first half hour or so whenever they try to talk to her. Or she will scowl at the hand puppet when I make it move. Or sometimes she’ll just scowl for the fun of it (we can’t help but laugh each time we see it).
