One Year Old?!
She looked like this right when she was born.
She's been adored by her daddy since day one.
Then she started to grow up (too fast!)
This past month has been an exciting one. She said her first word (dog, naturally). She now chants it when she sees dogs or cats. She started saying MMMMMM when she eats tasty things. She predictably does this, and sometimes it's really funny. Two times in the past couple of weeks she was chillin on the floor and I heard it, and then found that she had located a cheerio on her person and eaten it both times. She learned how to get a book and turn the pages for herself, and she loves doing this. She learned to pull herself up on just about anything and stand for up to an hour at a time, and also to walk along using furniture. After learning to clap and wave she now understands the idea of mimicking actions, and she'll copy actions like pointing, head nodding to music, rocking, ect. She bangs things together. She points to what she wants.
Being a parent is a wonderful thing. She's so much fun to spend my days with and I've never been happier.
