" I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that LOVING is the best calorie burner. I believe kissing. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." ~Audrey Hepburn

13 Months...

You are officially not a baby anymore. You are a toddler and SOOO independent!

One of my most favorite times of the day is at night after bath time and getting you in your jammies, is rocking you while you finish your bottle. Ill sing I am a Child of God and you will just stare in my eyes. I love it.

YOU WALK!!! Like FULL on WALK! You started taking steps on August 26th and got up to 32 going back and forth to dad and I, you were just a little nervous to start on you own. On September 1st, you decided you were ready and off you went. Now you walk in circles around the couch just because you think it is fun!

You LOVE it when I sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Patty Cake - you hold my hands and help me to the hand motions to it.

You can say: Mom, Dad, ickle ickle (tickle, tickle), uppeee (puppy), up.

You can sign: more, drink and thank you.

You love Boggs and your blanket.

You love getting in the shower with mom or dad. You will just play in the bottom of shower and let the water hit you.

You give dad chest bumps when he asks for them.

You are totally a mommas boy - and I hope it stays like that.

You love green smoothies and would drink multiples a day if I would make them.

You take the most ginormous bites when eating a banana.

You dance by yourself when music comes on and you like to dance with me when no one else is around.

You know where your belly button and your nose is. And when I ask you where your teeth are you bite down multiple times

You get shy when little girls smile at you. (like, close your eyes and tilt your head towards your shoulder shy)

You still love it when I read to you.

You like to brush your teeth! And will even let me finish up for you!

You like the park. You will even back up to the slide (like you are going down stairs) and go down the slide all by yourself.

Weve upgraded to a Sounds (by First Impressions) DVD that is 28 minutes and you will watch the entire thing!

You are obsessed with WHEELS! You will notice them from a mile away. Yesterday we were at the park and you started b-lining it towards one of those big garbage cans, I wasnt sure what you were doing at first - but then realized once you were there, you wanted the little wheels that were on it.

And, you are a TOTAL mommas boy and I wouldnt have it any other way!
