Typical Daily Schedule
Wake up around 8:30, breakfast bottle, play time, lunch,  nap from 11:30-3:00, bottle, play time (usually a walk when Dad gets home), dinner and bedtime routine (bath, pjs, bottle, bed) starting at 6:30, usually asleep by 8.

Things I Love:

  • My walker and stuffed puppy (DOG)
  • Going for walks in the Ergo or the stroller
  • Swings!
  • Raspberries, mashed potatoes and chicken

This Month's Milestones:
  • Climbing the stairs 
  • Another tooth
  • Can get off the couch (relatively safely) by myself 
  • Gives hugs and kisses when Mom asks 
  • I turned ONE!! 

Highlights of the Month:

  • I moved up to my 9 month clothes this month! The pants are pretty long, but luckily it's summer, so I can just wear shorts most of the time
  • When Mom bought the fruit for my birthday party, I reached in to the bag on the walk home and grabbed the raspberry container and shook them at Mom "asking" to eat them the whole way home. 
  • I could not be more excited than when Dad gets home for the day. As soon as I hear the door I crawl to the kitchen to see him come in. I also really don't like it when he leaves after lunch if I'm awake. 
  • I'm a better listener, but still very stubborn. I am getting better about not pulling on things I'm not supposed to touch. 
  • I love getting to spend so much time outside and at the park, especially the swings. Mom and Dad got me my own swing for the front porch for my birthday. 
  • I am strong enough to walk and stand up by myself, but I'm too chicken. I will let go of the activity table to show Mom and Dad my toys, but if you try to stand me up without something to hold on to I will sit down immediately. 
  • I have discovered the kitchen cabinets and the dishwasher - time for the safety locks!
  • I had a Pink Lemonade themed party on my birthday
