Only 4 More Weeks Until We Have a One Year Old

48 weeks ago, my baby was born. Peyton came into the world and we were blessed with a beautiful child. I am still in awe that my kiddo will be a year old in just 4 short weeks. Never did I think we would have a child, I was resolved to having cats. Now, not only do we have a child, but she looks JUST LIKE ME. I can’t even understand how lucky we are. I can’t even fathom what we did to get a baby girl who is beautiful, smart and sweet.

Peyton is learning all sorts of new things. She knows where her nose, toes, mouth, eyes and SOMETIMES her ears are. She can clap, wave, high five, and point. She has been saying new sounds, ‘s’, ‘t’, ‘d’, ‘b’, ‘h’ And we are certain we heard her say ‘cat’ when we did. She sticks her tongue out and she’s eating big people food. She’s mastered her sippy cup and doesn’t drink formula until she goes to sleep for naps or bedtime. She loves spinach, even though her tummy doesn’t, she loves apple juice, organic puffs, and goldfish crackers.

In the last year, I just can’t believe how much she has grown. She’s in 12 month pants and 18 month shirts and onesies. She wears a size 3 shoe. Look at those ladybug shoes! It’s amazing to me how much she is growing. She’s getting taller and she’s always on the move. She has 8 teeth that we know of (whose going to stick their fingers in her mouth? Not me!!) there are four on top and four on bottom.

It amazes me that she is crawling around and wandering from one piece of furniture to another. She will start to let go of something to walk and then she thinks better of it! She loves peek-a-boo, headstands, and somersaults. Her favorite songs are ‘itsy bitsy’ and ‘twinkle twinkle’.

Her all time favorite is ‘apple apple‘. If you haven’t shared this video with your little ones, you should try it! They will probably like it. She loves the Bubble Guppies, Your Baby Can Read, and Blue’s Clues.

I’m not really sure of the purpose of this post, other than to put down all the things that she is doing, the things she’s learning, the things that she loves and all the things about her that astounds me.

Here’s a nice little video of her (Make sure you turn up the volume), its a little dark in our apartment, but if you haven’t see a kiddo watch ‘Your Baby Can Read‘, here’s Peyton’s second real day of it:

Take Care ❤
