Our pumpkin is twelve months old!
Kennedy understands so much now! She's totally becoming a toddler and doing all of the funny things that toddlers do. She makes me laugh all day.
|Such a big girl!|
At twelve months you:
- Say "hello," "dada," and "toes." There have been times when you say other words, but these are the only consistent ones.
- Do three animal sounds. Dogs, cows, and elephants.
- Know where your toes and ears are.
- Play "How big is Kennedy?"
- We can ask you to bring us a certain toy or book. You know all of them.
- Are one busy girl! You can crawl SO fast. All of our friends with babies your age comment on how fast you are.
- Walk with your walker. No steps on your own yet, but you're standing for longer periods of time.
- Mylar balloons. The grocery store is the highlight of your life because there are so many balloons to point to.
- Your Cookie Monster stuffed animal. Grandpa Carl bought it for you when he came down to visit us for your birthday, and it was love at first sight.
- People. You are seriously, the most social little girl. You love getting attention from people, playing peek-a-boo, and are so friendly.
Highlights of the Month:
- Your first birthday party! I have so many pictures that I'm going to do a separate post for it, but it was quite the event.
- Mommy turned 29. We got to practice blowing our candles out before your party.
- You've been doing GREAT at nursery. No tears and lots happy smiles.
- Your hair is long enough to do the "Pebbles" ponytail. It lasts a few seconds before it's ripped out.
|I don't usually let Kennedy play with wire hangers, but whatever it takes to get a picture :)|
- Mor mor and Gramps came to stay while Doug was in New York for work. Kennedy got a horrible double ear infection and bronchitis while he was gone, so I was very thankful that they were here to help out.
- Grandpa Carl came down for Kennedy's party, and we had a great time hanging out with him. Kennedy HATED taking her antibiotics, and it took two of us to hold her down and try to stuff the antibiotics down her throat. Thanks Grandpa for your professional help with that!
