Growing Up: 13 Months
We've all 3 been a little under the weather for various reasons at our house for the past 7 days, but things are looking up! God was taking complete care of each one of us as always and thankfully Nathan and I alternated being well enough to take care of Hayes each day. You truly depend only on each other when you have no grandparents in town and each sickness/scare brings another true bonding experience! I hope this is the end of the sicknesses for this household for 2010! Now I feel spring coming on and we are all ready for that!!
Bye-bye old carseat!
Hello big girl car seat!
She's a little over 13 months and growing way too fast and making big changes everyday. Her favorite toys right now are her 3 little pigs w/playhouses, plastic rings, books (although she doesn't want you to read them to her-maybe half of a story at times), her talking tea set, piano, necklaces which she takes off and puts back on constantly, and her laundry basket. She's a funny eater. Today she ate peas and butterbeans for lunch and loved them. Lately she has not napped in the afternoon, just lays in her bed and plays, talks, makes noises and explores. She throws everything out of her crib. We can expect to hear a loud bump about 15 seconds after she gets in her bed from throwing her glow worm or baby dolls down on the floor. She can reach the blinds from her bed and bangs them against the wall and thinks it is hilarious, and it really is very funny to peek in and watch that!
Today we had a lunchtime ice cream date with Daddy. She knows her Daddy will share some ice cream with her. If he ever has anything in a cup or bowl, she will drop everything in her hands and stand right underneath him like a puppy. And that man can't say no to her. She gets all the ice cream she wants from him. Mommy is a different story-she doesn't like to share her food-hahaha!
We made a quick trip to the park afterwards. I could eat those little baby legs and feet!
Happy Spring! Hope everyone is staying healthy and enjoying the beautiful weather!!
