One Year!

Oh this sweet girl! Oh this past year! She's a treasure and it's been a blessing! I can't believe how quickly this year went by! Suddenly, my little baby is a bubbling toddler with a personality that's bursting forth each day... and we love it! She makes us laugh all day with her funny faces and her excitement over every little thing.
At one year old:
  • Lulu can say a few words: Mama, Dada, ba (balloon, ball), up, and more. 
  • Lulu can also sign please, more, and thank you.
  • She LOVES to eat and doesn't seem to ever get full. Her favorites are raisins, yogurt, berries, cheese, pickles and chicken.
  •  Lulu still isn't crawling. She is (maybe) getting close. She sits in one spot and spins like a windmill to see everything around her. I can put her in one spot on the floor and come back and she's somehow moved several feet... inch by inch without crawling haha. It's not very effective, but I guess she's moving. 
  • Lu is OBSESSED with standing and pulling up to stand and walking while holding our fingers. Maybe she'll just skip crawling?
  • Lulu's favorite toy is her Foxie. By far! She squeals in delight and wiggles and wiggles when she has Foxie in her arms.
  • She is sleeping 11-12 hours a night (yay!) and still takes a 2 hour morning nap and a 3 hour afternoon nap. 
  • She has 9-10 teeth. She doesn't like when we try to open her mouth for a peek.
  • She has become super flexible and easy going. 
  • She loves to be apart of whatever is going on, but doesn't really want to be the center of attention. 
  • She hates loud noises (aka fireworks, garbage trucks, train whistles). She makes the funniest face and then buries her head in my neck. 
  • She LOVES singing and being sung to. 
  • Viv is still her favorite person and they are beginning to play together and wrestle and giggle like crazy. It's just the cutest!
  • She also doesn't sit still for photos very easily anymore and is so curious!
And we are off to a Twins game today to celebrate! Fun!
