12 Months Old

Dear Ansley,

I can't believe it's been a year since you came into our lives. Looking back at those newborn pictures from the hospital, with your skinny skinny frog legs, it seems so long ago. But, then there are times when I'm unable to remember what life was like without you. You have been the most easy going, happy and amazing child any parent could ever ask for. You're such a great sleeper, a trait I am certain (and thankful) that you inherited from your father. Even with all of your smiles and good moods, you're starting to show some signs of a determined little personality. Once you get your mind set on something it's hard to change. You're daddy likes to say you inherited this one from me :o) You're not walking yet, but you will be soon. You started saying Ah-yee (Allie) a few days ago and absolutely love that dog. I'm sorry the feeling is not mutual right now, that will change once you're big enough to hand her your food or throw a ball. You've also seemed to stop saying Ma-Ma unless crying. When I ask you to say Ma-Ma you say Da-Da and think it's funny. You've become really good at repeating common words like "bye-bye", "doggie", "thank you", and "kitty", although your first official word was "button". You have also recently mastered the "f" sound (probably helped by the fact that your top teeth are coming in). You LOVE flowers and point at them with intensity while saying "Ffff-Ffff-Ffff". We think you are going to really like music. Already, you try to sing and since standing have begun "dancing". Your daddy and I love you so much and are excited to see your little personality emerge even more. Happy birthday baby girl!
