Not So Li'l Anymore!

Our Li'l G has grown in leaps and bounds over the last 10 months, so here's a quick update on milestones as my feeble mind remembers them.

Since turning 1, she

* has taken her first steps and moved into running around like a crazy woman
* makes good use of her nearly full set of teeth, chomping down on cheeseburgers and pickles alike
* makes the sign of the cross with pretty good pluck, not quite getting to the Father as we start, but chiming in for the Son and the Holy Spirit with a hearty AMEN.
* adores her daddy and their nightly walks and adventures in the park. Swings, slides, bridge, oh my!
* enjoys coloring and drawing, and will even ask to sit in her chair and draw
* sings back to us when we sing with her

* loves dancing and shaking her little booty
* started talking using full phrases and sentences - she LOVES to talk. A lot. And loudly.
* quite enjoys the water, be it bathtime or pooltime...just sad that we didn't get as much of a chance to hit the pool or beach this summer!

* moved into a "big girl bed" (which is just a mattress on the floor) and is doing spectacularly with naps and nighttime. Maybe we should have moved her sooner! ;)
* is learning to be a good big sister, and loves giving baby brother kisses and sharing her toys

I'm sure there are a thousand things I'm forgetting, but these seem to be the highlights for now!

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Rest assured I do read each and every word, but please forgive me if I don't get back to you right away. The toddler tugging on my leg and the one year old pulling my hair may have seized control of my typing abilities. Blessings on your day!
