These newsletters come way too soon each month. It almost seems like tomorrow you will be packing your bags to go off to college. I remember the first few weeks after we brought you home, I never thought I would ever sleep again. It’s amazing how things change and how I would give just about anything to be back in those first few weeks.
So, let’s see, what are you up to now. How about EVERYTHING! Nothing is off limits to you. You try and reach your little hand into kitchen drawers, you love to take your clothes out of your drawers, and you love to play in dirt. Dirt.
Oh, and you love to sit at the computer. You know how to click the mouse and everything!
Probably the biggest development is your speech. You have REALLY started talking this month. Your ever-growing list of words includes: Momma, Dadda, ball, bite, pretty, shoes, bye-bye, drink, nose, mouth, eyes, ear, belly, Mamaw, Papaw, your own variation of Grandmom and Grandad, dog, and cat. There may be a few more, but that’s all I can think of. You respond to many more words than this, you just haven’t figured out how to say them yet.
You LOVE to play outside. And hate to come indoors after frolicking around.
You are my little girl. Sometimes I stare at your little face trying to remember everything about you. Your little cheeks and the dimples when you smile. Your sweet little nose. Your bangs. The part of your neck that meets your jaw.
You make my days worth living.
I love you,
