lucky number 13...

Today I'm 13 months old! So that Mommy will have a record of what I was doing at this age, here's the lowdown...

-On most days, I'm still taking 2 naps a day. At night, I sleep from about 7:30pm- 7:00am.
-I am starting to LOVE songs and rhymes with hand motions like "Itsy Bitsy Spider," "Head, Shoulder, Knees, & Toes," etc. Now, I'm not saying I DO the hand motions (although I may try one or two!), but I'm pretty fascinated with whoever IS.
-Walking is taking over my life. It's all I think about. It's all I want to do. Most recently I just want to walk around the house with a book in my hand. This results in various books and toys ending up in various rooms and places. Which leads us to the next one...
-I just learned what it means to "pick up." I'm pretty sure I don't like it. :)

-Talking is also high on my list. I've started having conversations by myself when I'm playing, complete with inflections and everything! (Hey- it may not make sense to you, but it sure does to me. Mommy & Daddy love it!)
-I love to imitate words that Mommy & Daddy say, and I am understanding ALOT more than I can say. For instance, if I'm reading with Mommy & she asks me "where's the sun/banana/car/butterfly/crackers/kitty-cat/shoes," etc., I'll point to them! It's amazing how many new words I'm collecting in my little brain every day.
-Speaking of pointing, I'm pointing to everything I want to know about. Everything around me is a wonderland that I want to explore!
-My word list now is mama, dada, go go, nana (for banana), ball, hey, bye bye, night night, Mamie, Pop, Nanny, Papa, Lala, "poo" (for spoon.. ha!), and every day, I'm adding more.

- Still a great eater. I love eating whatever Mommy & Daddy are having. Some new favorites added to the menu... fresh tomato pieces, cucumber pieces, pizza (it's a good thing in this family), pasta, black beans, orange pieces, tilapia, and sandwich pieces. Remember how much I loved green beans as a baby food? Well, no luck on the real stuff yet. We'll keep trying.
- I like to push my limits. I want to know if that same thing is STILL a "no no" as it was yesterday. :)
- I'm one loved little gal.

  1. I think you forgot one: "I am the most adorable thing ever!" Ok, maybe you wanted to stick with the humility, but it's true!

  2. and i'd like to add that as soon as i typed that blog entry out today, guess who ate ALL of the green beans that were offered to her?!? ha!

  3. Sweet one! I can't believe you're getting so BIG!

    "Walking is all I think about..." hahaha

    I don't really like picking up either Caroline. :)

  4. We've been gone a few days Caroline. I remembered you 13 month birthday and thought about you. We can hardly wait to see you again. Oh, by the way, Nanny bought you something at the beach. Hope to get it to you soon. You are a Darling little girl. We love you,
