You are such a funny little girl. You love to laugh but only as long as you are in the safety of those that love you. You are very wary around new people. You met the Dr last week and I swear you him one long look from head to toe with one eye brow raised. That is just how you are with new people. You have to take it all in before you will let down that wall.
Contemplative. That is the best word to describe you. You like to sit back and watch the situation unfold. Take it all in.
You love your brother. You two seem to have this secret language that only you two understand. You sit and "talk" to each other and laugh and squeal.
This stomach bug you had really took a toll on you. You went from almost 18 lbs(75%) at 6 months to just over 16 lbs(15%) today. If you had stayed on your growth curve you would of been over 20 lbs today. The Dr was not worried though. You are still growing in height and your head. You are 28.5 in tall. So we just might not to be able to turn you around at one year. Sounds like you are going to be tall and skinny.
You love food. You eat what we do for the most part now with fillers of jarred food and breast milk in between. You love pancakes and eggs.
You love to smile and babble all day long. And you have this wierd fasination with Bears cars. You love to sit there and drive them back and forth and growl. No doubt that you have learned that from your brother.
You love to clap and play peek-a-boo and you love to wave at people in the store. Now you have that face of stone on while you are doing it though.
You have been crawling for a couple weeks now and are very proficient at it. You have been pulling up to your knees on things for about a month, but the last few days you have actually started to get your feet under you. It is only a matter of time before you are furniture cruising.
You are such a sweet baby that loves to cuddle. You love to play with my hair while you are nursing and if mine is pulled back you like to reach up to your own head, get a handful and twirl it.
I love you little girl. I love watching you change and grow every day. I love watching you learn new things and that look of pride on your face when you figure something out. You are quick to let me know when you are upset, you have quite a little temper on you but you more than make up for it with your toothy smiles and your waves from across the room and then eventually following me around the room and being underfoot every time I turn around. I love it.
