happy 13 months! you are officially a toddler. way to go!
you have grown up so much in the last month. i can hardly believe, but you are sweet as ever. please, please stay that way forever. thanks.
you are walking all over the place. you crawl sometimes, but only when you need to be really fast. i love watching you walk, you grow more sure of yourself with every step and are so proud of yourself when you reach your destination. you have 3 words, well you have more, but i have not figured out what they mean, mama, dada, and book. speaking of books, you still love to read! this makes me so happy. we read lots of books during the course of the day and you have taken to reading them on your own. you are eating alot of solid food these days. fruit is your absolute favorite, you would kill someone for blueberries, bananas and strawberries. but you also are a fan of grilled cheese and peanut butter and jelly. you had ground beef with tomato sauce last night and loved it. i am so grateful that you are a good eater.
you are so much fun. you have your own little personality and its like i have a constant little friend with me at all times. but, you have also begun to assert and express yourself. just yesterday i closed the door to the family room, which you did not want me to do, and to show me your displeasure you flopped on the floor and screamed. it was hard not to laugh, you were so pathetic laying there on the floor. luckily, your tantrum did not last long and you were your happy self within minutes.
i can not wait to see how you change and grow this month. it is such a joy and honor to be your mama.
