Today Tori turned one year old. In the few months she has been with us she has already accomplished so many things... 1. She can say mama, dada, hi ya 2. She can use sign language to ask for more 3. She can walk and is trying to run 4. She loves books 5. She loves to swim 6. She loves her bath 7. She is using a cup, but not giving up the bottle any time soon...she demands it at times 8. She can salute (Nick taught her that) 9. She can make a disaster of the sun room, repeatedly emptying her book and video baskets 10. She has learned she can tolerate the car seat if she sleeps in it 11. She went to daycare for the first time (she will go part time when I need to go the doctor, appts, etc.) 12. She loves to harass the dog by taking and giving her toys, playing in her food and water, and not letting her get to her mama 13. She has been to the ocean twice and now likes the wavy water, but still dislikes the sand 14. She can fall asleep easily when going for walks in the stroller 15. She still fights going to sleep and wakes up 2-4 times a night 16. She loves to hear the same book read over and over many times in a night 17. She is eating regular people food 18. She likes to ride in her new Step 2 Convertible (trying to keep up with her big sister) 19. She loves to blow kisses, give hugs and show she loves her family 20. She is definitely attached to her family well! We are thankful to have her in our lives.
