I am not sure how we made it here so quickly.
But, you, my dear are ONE year old.
Mommy is so thankful for you in her life.
From the very first moment I laid eyes on you I knew you were mine.
You are sweet, very smart, talkative, a busy body, opinionated, and Mommy is by far your favorite.
at 12 months:
You can walk but, have not figured that out yet. You must hold my finger. But are so sure footed. It is only a matter of time before you will be running & chasing your brother & sisters.
You crawl in your own unique sort of way. Best way to describe is a baby gorilla.
You are very smart.
Your speaking ability reminds us of your older sister, Leah at this age. You speak very clear. You have a big vocabulary. At times you connect 2 words, like "hi dog-dog"
(mama, dadda, sissy, bubba, dog-dog, kitty, hi, bye, mamaw, go, tickle, cookie,bite, all done, please)
You still use some signs: all done, please, eat, drink
Last month you spread out your nursing sessions and we only nurse about 2x a day. In the am & pm
You are a pretty good eater. You will try just about anything.
You say "mmmmm" when you see food
Your favorite foods:
cottage cheese, yogurt, blueberries, mac cheese, deli turkey, mandarin oranges, cookies, peas
You love to play in the kitchen while mama cooks. You spend a lot of time exploring the lids, cups, and tupperware. You love on baby dolls, hug them & say "aww" You love when the big kids push you on your ride on toy around the house.
You have several nicknames:
Milly, Emi, Sugar Bear, Sugar, E, Sissy
No matter what name we call you, you are loved so much by everyone who meets you!
Emilia Micah you will forever be my baby.
I love you more than the sun, the moon, and the stars.
