Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

13 Months Old

Every day is more fun! Amelia is just jabbering up a storm and it's sooo cute. We have no idea what she says, but we respond to her like we're having a conversation and she responds as well, so I guess we're saying the right things back to her! Her new "word" is doy. I think she is saying toy, but we're not 100 percent certain yet. She also likes to do this thing with an "ooh" sound that sounds like she's going from one note up a fourth (Daddy says third) and back down. More musical than an ambulance, though.

She is walking everywhere and is discovering all sorts of new things around the house. She is also getting curious about trying things on her own that she sees Mommy and Daddy doing - like opening the kitchen cabinets. So far it's still fun for us to watch her world expand as she walks around a corner following one of us out of a room or discovers Tigger in the corner of the sunroom. She does really well getting down the slight step from the kitchen into the sunroom, and back into the kitchen. She is really patient with herself and very methodical. She's also very stubborn and independent. We have noooo idea where she gets those last two traits from! (LOL ... poor girl has a dose from each of us!!)
