You are 1!!!! How has this happened? J It seems as though you just came in to our lives, but at the same time we’ve had you forever, right? We really don’t remember much of what life was like before you came. What a joy!
On the days leading up to your birthday, mom and dad discussed your first year. We especially went through all the details of your birth week: the days leading up to, the day of, and a few days after. The reminiscing was full of emotions. We LOVE our little girl!
At twelve months you:
-are VERY much a momma’s girl.
-celebrated your 1st birthday with a pretty bad cold. Runny nose and eyes, with a rough cough.
-have a celebrity wave.
-without using words you sure know how to get what you want! You do a little “grab-wave” towards any item you want. If we pick up the wrong one, you either shake your head now or push it away.
-found out you have a sweet tooth like your daddy. You also really love bread. You know exactly when dessert comes out…. How??
-have stood by yourself a few times, but are still extremely cautious. You can stand, but as soon as you realize you’re not holding on to anything then you sit down.
-mastered climbing (going up) stairs. Your process of going down still needs some work. You make mom and dad nervous!
-got two black kittens.
-you mimic lots of sounds, especially cows and kittens. You and dad have many conversations that consist of “uhhhhs.” You really think you’re talking.
-have curly hair? You have a definitely curl on the back of your head. We're excited to see what it turns in to!
-still have only two teeth, but we can see all of your top two front teeth through your gums. They will be here any time!
-enjoy sitting in a little baby pool in the backyard. We’re trying to work up to the cold city pool.
-like going on runs in the stroller. You don’t enjoy it so much when we walk….do you like the bouncing on the gravel roads?
-switched to size 3 diapers at night because size 2 wasn’t doing its job. Size 3 seems awfully big, but now we’re not having to change your sheets every morning. J
-attended Meade and Ashland graduation ceremonies.
-watched a decent amount of state track with mom and dad on the computer at home. You aren’t really interested in TV, but do watch sporting events….daddy’s girl?
-started "cheesin'" for the camera:
We found out that you like to eat the tips of asparagus.
