You definitely are the second child, even your birthday post is a day late!
My itty bitty, you light up our lives. You’ve just started to really be able to communicate with us. You love to wave goodbye, and when you shake your little head “no”, you always have a really serious look on your face!
You’ve started to copy a lot of the sounds we make, and we love playing at it with you.
You’re eating mostly “grown up” food now, and we get a kick out of how methodically you pick each morsel out. If there’s something you don’t particularly like, you very careful pick it all out and set it to the side.
You like to help pull the cutlery out of the dishwasher and hand it to me, you just haven’t figured out that we only do that part when it’s clean!
You get outraged very easily, by us taking away something unsafe, or being told no, but you’re calmed very easily too.
You love your blankie, you snuggle with it, and if I say, “where’s Alex?” you stop whatever you’re doing and pull the blanket up over your face.
Last night, while we were cuddling, you had your hand on my arm, and I realized, it felt like a toddler hand, not a baby hand anymore. It’s so fun to watch you grow up and interact more with your world.
We love you baby girl, we can’t wait to watch you grow this year,
