Favorite activity: coloring, reading books, playing in the dirt/sand/water

Favorite food: berries, graham crackers, macaroni and cheese

Favorite spot: sitting at her activity table or sitting in her rocking chair.

Cutest moment: Too many to choose from! It's got to be a tie between playing hide and seek behind the living room curtains with Grady or waving and blowing kisses while riding around in Logan's new wagon! 

Important milestones: She's officially one and a half years old!

Signs: 11 (more, all done, dog, please, berry, cheese, grape, water, milk, help, thank you)

How Mom's Feeling: This month has been really fantastic. I had two full weeks off, so I had two weeks to be a stay at home mom, which was a lot of fun. I did better during these two weeks. When I had my first week off, I packed it with so many activities that by Thursday, I was exhausted. This time, we stuck closer to home and spread out our activities. It was great because I was able to get a routine down with her (and see how she actually naps, eats and plays). In the mornings, we would get up and eat breakfast, then play until about 10-10:30. Then nap until around 12:30-1:00, eat lunch and go out to run errands, go to the playground or Golden Gate Park. We'd come home and nap from around 4-6, play, watch some Sesame Street while I made dinner, eat dinner, bath and bedtime.

This month Lorelei has also taken to mimicking and "helping". She's really working on talking, and while sign and speak at the same time. She frequently tries to repeat words that she hears (so watch your language, people!). She also wants to help: putting away the dishes, putting away her diapers and cleaning up her toys. Most interesting, she wants to put garbage in the trash can. We can't walk through the playground without her picking up every piece of trash to throw away!

And just for reference:
