13 months old

you turned 13 months old this weekend and we completely forgot to celebrate (oh no...such bad parents!)  we were so busy celebrating another friend's 1st birthday that it completely slipped our minds!  you are busy busy busy! if i tried to sit you down for one second to take your picture, you'd squirm and run away!  here's what you've been up to this past month:

running. once you learned to walk it was all over from there... you run everywhere, all over the house, up and down the driveway.  everywhere.

you cry for food... if we don't feed you STAT, it is all out tears.  i swear kid, we feed you!  you can tell by your chubby legs & belly!

speaking of belly, you learned a new "trick".  if we ask you where your belly is, you'll lift up your shirt and look down at your belly.  it is SO cute!

you give everything hugs & kisses... all your toys, stuffed animals, and family.  

when you drink your milk (FINALLY out of a sippy!!!) you say, "ahhh" afterwards.  not sure where you learned that one from :)

you learned the "milk" sign this week, too.   you also sign "more" and "all-done".   i think (for the first and only time in your life) hanging out with an older boy, taught you some good things!  you loved your evening with brooks this week!! he taught you how to sign "milk" and say "baby.  now when you see a picture of yourself when you were little, you point and say "baby".  SO sweet. 

you say a few words, but we're working on your language.  you'll say
-dado (changed from dada to dado recently)
- doggie (sounds like die! especially cause you SCREAM it when you see a dog)
- baby
-my (not sure what this really means, milk, mine, ... )

if you need your diaper changed, you'll climb up the stairs and go straight to your room.  potty training soon?!?! you'll go to your highchair if you're hungry and you'll stand in front of the fridge reaching up signing milk if you're thirsty! no sippy cup can pass your eyes without being DEMANDED!

you are learning to use your toys in new ways, too.  you'll put the rings on the pole, put the rings on the octopus legs, & LOVE putting things in baskets or cups.  you even put sophie in lucy's dog dish tonight! 

you're responding to certain commands, too.  i'll tell you to go get something, and you run to retrieve it! you look so proud when you do!  if i ask, "where's daddy?" you look around and do an almost shrug with your hands. 

you love...
- going down the slide from uncle mike
- rocking on the rocking moose from uncle kyle (you giggle the whole time!)
- takes FOREVER to get down the block now....
- peek-a-boo (this ensures GREAT giggles!)
- tickles (giggles galore!)
- dancing & music (must sign you up for a music class soon!)
- baths
- cheerios (as always)
- lucy.  especially when she runs around like crazy, you laugh so hard! 

your hair has gotten longer, you've gotten taller, and you look so much older.  still, when you have your pj's on and have your paci and blankie you look like such a baby and i LOVE it!  

you still cry when i pick you up from miss kathy's... 

my favorite moment this month was this past weekend when dad got up with you and let me "sleep" in, you ran into our room shrieking and saying, "mama!" with a HUGE smile on your face.  those are the moments i live for.

i still miss you SO much when i'm at work and i hurry home to pick you up.  monday's are the hardest and i treasure our time together, even though you are just such a peach (ha!) from 5-6pm ;) i know before i blink you'll be running off to play with your friends after school and won't want to spend as much time with me.  every time i see you i just can't help but hug you so tight and kiss your sweet little face.  you'll never know how much we love you, noraboo!
