Wow! Our little girl is getting big! It’s already time to start planning her first birthday. Ideas are definitely in the works. I cannot believe she is almost a year old. And no one is more excited than she is. This little thing wants to be big so bad. She sees everything that her older sister and brother are doing and wants to be just like them. She follows them around the house on her belly. Little right foot pushes and does all the work.
She’s a very social little thing and loves to hop around from person to person so long as I’m within arms reach. And she loves to talk (or should I say “squawk”?). When she wants something or is upset, she won’t cry about it. Instead she’ll squawk. And if she doesn’t get her way, she’ll squawk louder and louder until whatever need of hers is met. It’s quite funny.
I think she really believes that she’s a big person trapped in a little person’s body. She’s no longer content just sitting on the floor. She now wants to go every where I go and do everything I’m doing. Except for nap time and an hour at the gym, and the occasional scooting around the house, I now have a permanent fixture on my right hip. She still insists that it’s her “spot.”
But as soon as Daddy comes home, all eyes are on him. She LOVES her daddy. She always wants to go to him . . . and then to me . . . and then back to him . . . and then . . . for as long as we’ll let her. She’s starting to say “Da da” and is saying “Ma ma” so much more now. I melt every time and of course come running. She also LOVES music. Whenever she gets a little fussy in the car, I’ll turn on the Little People soundtrack (the kids’ favorite) and she buttons right up. She’s still our Little Goodsie! We love our little Skittle Bittle.
And here’s one with the three of them together. These shots are few and far between.
