Highlights of the Month:
- I almost fit in most of my 12 month clothes now and I'm still in size 3 diapers.
- I bring my books to Mom or Dad and sit on their lap until they read to me. When I read them by myself I repeat "buh" over and over as I "read".
- My hair got long enough for a fountain pony on top and now pigtails. I end up with little buns because it is SO curly.
- I make funny faces at Mom and Dad, crinkling up my nose.
- My "friends" are starting to become real friends. Pax and I are really excited to see each other in the morning and I got to play at the 4th of July parade with Logan, Ryder, Finley and Hunter! So much fun!
- When Mom goes to put me down for nap, I give her a big hug, snuggle on her shoulder, give her kiss and then lean into the crib to tell her to lay me down to sleep.
- We traveled a lot this summer. I still won't sleep in the car, so that was exciting, but I'm still a pretty good sport. On the way to and from Oklahoma (8 hours each way) I only slept about an hour total!
- I met my Great-Great Grandma in July! She was almost 98 years old! After her birthday in August, she sent me her balloons so I could play with them.
- I also spent a lot of time in the Ergo with Mom this summer because Mom and Dad love to go on walks after work.
- I loved the pool in OK but hate it at home, so mom thinks it's probably because of how cold the water is here.
- Mom and Dad left me with my grandparents for two weekend trips this summer - with Nana and Papa when they went to Galena and with Grammy and Grampy when they went to Kansas City. I finally learned how to walk while Mom and Dad were in KC, so I walked to Mom for the first time on her birthday.
- I got my first real injury in July when I took a header off the love seat and hit my face on the TV stand. I looked like Scarface, but after a short cry it was worse for Mommy than for me.
- I need to moved up to the toddler room at D6 since I started walking. I've been in that room for a long time so Mom was a little nervous, but I did great with Jessamy and the Beckers.
- Mom and Dad have really enjoyed playing with me now that I'm more of a toddler than an infant - I get to play with them instead of just look at them like they're weird.
