I do not know how this happened, but my little girl is one…this year has gone by so fast (cliche, I know).
She’s changed so much in the last year, it’s hard to believe she’s even the same human being. She’s gone from a poopin’, cryin’, eatin’ machine to a little girl who still does all those things, but so much more!
walk holding my hand
try to eat with a fork
brush her teeth
brush her hair (and mine)
try to put on socks, shoes, shirts
try to take off diapers!
put her cap on her sippy cup
do a somersault (with help)
climb up slides
and go down them
drink from a bottle (this was a big feat)
say “see you later” and “i love you” (sounds like seoolayla and ilavoo)
talk on the phone, and call people too
say “nana” and “hello” and “bye” and “bubble” and bark like Zoe
She’s just an amazing little thing, and the most perfect thing Michael and I have ever accomplished together. I think surviving her first year is also a huge accomplishment, and I’m giving us a much deserved pat on the back for the great job we’ve done. We’ve thus far raised a compassionate, loving, sweet little girl, who’s intensity of emotion continues to surprise and amaze me.
Peanut is fantastic, and judging by this first year, the rest of our lives are going to be a rollercoaster of epic proportions and I can’t wait! I really do look forward to watching her continue to grow and change and develop as a person.
