You are 16 months old today and MY GOODNESS are you a little person! The difference between now and the last note I wrote is enormous. You can really communicate with us now. Your vocabuary has grown to at least fifty words and you're adding new ones each day. As we watch you grow your personality is emerging more and more. You're goofy- you love to laugh and joke around- but you're also deepy sensitive. I think we've always known this to be true to an extent but you show it more each day. You're not terribly into cuddling but hugging is a different story. Your face lights up when you see your "dada" after school each day. You like to "help", handing me your plate when you're done with your meal, putting all your pacifiers back into your crib before we go downstairs, bringing a toy over to us when we ask for it, etc. You're getting much better about wearing your glasses in fact you really only take them off when you're tired. You're starting to love books, flipping the pages and pointing to images that are interesting to you. Walking is coming along but you aren't quite there yet. We think you're tricking us... you could definitely do it, you're just a bit cauteous and want to make sure you don't fall before you really take off. You love using your wooden walker and have figured out how to turn it when you run into a wall. You also love walking between mom and dad and being cheered on as you dive into our arms.
We love you sweet peanut! We can't wait for Christmas and for the adventures the next few weeks bring!
