Mother's Day

Hey baby girl,
Thank you for making a mom!

I know I haven't posted in a long time. When I start to write, it feels like nothing's happened, but then when I look back at my last post, it's obvious that a lot has changed! The most exciting thing of course is that you've started walking!! You waited until the perfect time. I was scared that you'd start while I was at work, but you waited until Good Friday, and even your Aunt Rachel & Uncle Chris got to watch, thanks to the internet!!

You're so happy and so proud of yourself. Now you want to walk everywhere!! The only downside is that now, taking you shopping is a bit tricky, you want to walk and take things off the shelf and hand them to me, which will work much better once you can read the grocery list.You've also recently decided that sleeping at night is a good thing, and daddy and I couldn't agree more. You usually sleep 12 or 13 hours a night now, which is a huge improvement from the 4 hour spurts we were getting just a few short weeks ago.

We took you to the park today and you went down the slides and played on the swings. You love to watch the other kids play. I can't wait until you're old enough to play with them.
You love to tickling! You tickle my feet all the time, and when you're sitting in the car seat, you tickle your own legs. You're so fun! You have a great sense of humor. You love to laugh and make us laugh.

Baby, I love you! For the first time, I feel like I wish time would just slow down. I'm loving my time with you. Thank you for making me a mommy. I love you princess!
