Favorite activity: Getting into EVERYTHING!
Favorite food: blueberries, blackberries, cheese, mashed potatoes...
Favorite spot: Anywhere she can make a mess!
Naughtiest moment: Torturing Finnegan! He is her very very best friend and she loves to give him hugs!
Important milestones: Teeth! Two teeth on the bottom, and two coming in on top! Also, pushing herself up into a standing postition all on her own--then falling down 5 seconds later.
How Mom's Feeling: I cannot believe a whole year has gone by. Where did the time go? Well, I know, actually. It's all in here! Visits with friends, trips to the park, the museum, San Francisco...It just boggles my mind that in a mere 12 months, Lorelei has gone from being a little (but very cute) lump of baby to the tiny person she is today! In this year we've seen snippets of the person she will become shining through. She is clever (opening gates on her own), persistent (it doesn't matter how many times you hide the cell phone, SHE WILL FIND IT), and hates the word "NO." She is also loving (always kissing the babies in her books), curious and delighted by the world around her (she just loves to sit outside and laugh!)
I keep trying to pinpoint best moments and worst moments of the year, and I just can't. There are so many to choose from. This year has been an amazing journey, and it's just beginning...
It's Birthday Season! 1st birthday party of the year: Madeline (only 5 days older than Lorelei!)
|In the ball pit!|
|Climbing up the slide is almost as fun as going down!|
|Ronen is always the life of the party!|
|Lorelei is digging this rocking horse!|
|Raise your hand if you've seen this look on Auntie Toff's face!|
Happy Hollow is the Place to Be!
|Goats. We dig them!|
|Lorelei and Danica, chatting in the sand pit|
|First big girl ride: the carousel!|
|Carousels are fun (when they aren't moving!)|
