12 Months!!

I'm going to call this a 12 month update rather than 1 year, because it's just too hard for me to say that my baby girl is 1. Each of the months went by so fast, but this last month of babyhood seemed especially quick.

She's such a happy girl, crawling ALL OVER THE PLACE now. She's also walking along furniture, and this morning she pulled up on me, and let go for a few seconds before falling down. She loves taking all of the books off her shelf in the living room and throw them on the floor. And taking all of the plastic containers out of the drawers in the kitchen.

Baby A is also a chatty one this month. We hear lots of "mama" and "dada", but even more gogidygogidy (Daddy thinks she sounds like a leprechaun). Last week she was really into "uh-oh" but we haven't heard it much this week.

She's not feeling the best today (it just doesn't seem right to be sick on your 1st birthday), so I let her have her very favorite toy, the remote control, to get the pictures started. Other favorites include our cell phones, my ipod, and if she could get her hands on it, she'd be happy to take the computer.

We've slowly been making the switch over to whole milk for the past few weeks, and slowing down nursing. It's a bittersweet mark for me. I'm going to be a little sad to miss that sweet time when she first wakes up in the morning.

Baby A is still in mostly 12 month clothes, but she's growing quickly. Her legs just keep getting longer and longer!

Amazingly (to me), it seems Baby A's eyes are going to stay blue. I never thought I would end up with a blue-eyed babe, but it seems that's what I have. And they are a beautiful blue, like her Daddy.


  1. Happy Birthday! I agree, it's hard to accept toddlerhood. :) It's been a great year, hasn't it!?

  2. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
    this post makes me so happy in my heart.

    I am so thankful you have been sharing her life on this blog! it helps Miss Heather feel a little less far away!
