You are now 14 months old, time is flying by and I feel like I can hardly keep up with how much you are changing! You are ALMOST walking, but you just aren't there yet. You've started pushing things around the floor, and you stand alone all the time but you have yet to take that first step.
You are getting so chatty and playful! You love playing peekaboo, we ask "where's mabel?" and you reply "a dere!" You are into exploring everything around you, mostly to pull things out of drawers, throw things around and look under everything. You are relatively cautious but so curious!
You are still taking 2 naps a day. Usually one mid day and a cat nap while I make dinner. By 1 year both of your sisters were only napping 1x a day (and they were relatively short naps!) but you are still needing 2.
You tried to help daddy fix something under the sink. It was pretty cute, but not actually helpful.
Lucy loves being your big sister, and picking you up, or pushing you around (for better or worse!)
We went to a christmas light show, and you were moderately impressed. By 'moderately impressed' I mean that you dozed off a few times and didn't scream at me.
It's winter break so we are having lots of fun outings. You love OMSI!
Hanging with your BFF Flannery
I love that your head and the water have the same swirl.
We had a belated birthday celebration at Auntie Bug's house during our family christmas. You loved the candles and cake!
Lucy is so in love with you (and Ruby!) and kisses you every morning, and hugs you anytime you are sad (even when it's her fault!)
You three are sometimes like the 3 Muskateers, inseparable.
You helped me wrap some Christmas presents. It was less than helpful.
We all had matching PJs for Christmas Eve! I never thought I would be THAT mom, but I guess I am.
You helped wrap, and unwrap!
You also helped lay out cookies for Santa, and snuck one for yourself!
You apparently love doing laundry. At least someone does.
You were less than impressed with how cold it was.
But I kept you snuggled up and you realized it could be fun.
Your sisters had a blast on the sled!
And eventually you did too!
You are SUCH a lover. You are happy and friendly and hug everyone you love. It's the most precious thing I've ever seen.
You absolutely LOVE going to the zoo and seeing the elephants.
So do your sisters and Cormac.
Flannery is your BFF. She and her family come for taco Tuesday every week and you are both so happy to see each other every time. You hug each other and laugh and are so silly.
My darling Mabel, watching you grow has been so much fun. Your personality is contagious and delightful. Even when you sleep on my neck or crawl on my head you are still nothing but a joy. I can't wait to see what's next.
All my heart, Mama
