This week you finally started allowing me to give you kisses. Before you’d always turn your head and offer your cheek, but now you’ll do both open mouth and closed mouth kisses, and every time I kiss you, you laugh hysterically. I’m not sure why my kisses are so funny, but I’ll take it. 🙂
You love pointing at everything now days – “Dat!” or “Uh-oh!” – are heard nonstop around the house. If I put some food on your tray and you want something else, you’ll point at it and say DAT! Well okay – you have an opinion now and know how to express it. Nice! You also say Mama, Dada, THhhhhhh or EEEF (for Chief).
Grandma Julie and Grandpa Elmo sent you a shopping cart last week as an early birthday present, and you absolutely love it. You push it around full of toys, then pull out all the toys, play for awhile, load the toys back up, and on your way you go. You basically use it as a portable toy box and as a means to furniture cruise from point A to point B. Smart kid!
Last weekend was your friend Hennessy’s first birthday, and you got to have a cupcake with frosting on it. OH MY GOSH child, you were not so sure of it at first, but after a bit you absolutely devoured it. Daddy cannot WAIT for your smash cake at your birthday. Speaking of birthdays, how in the world are you turning 1 in just 9 short days?!
The days and weeks are flying by my daughter… I can’t believe how far we’ve come in one year. I love you so much.
