So, I took 2 whole pictures of Gemma at 12 months old.
But my camera is broken.
Seriously. It broke the day after her big shindig.
At some point (soon) I will get the pictures off of the memory stick on the desktop. Until then, I want to at least get my monthly post done before she is 13 months old!
This month has been nuts. I mentioned recently (in my 11 months post maybe?) that my baby was becoming a toddler...
ain't that the truth!
This month Gemma has learned all kinds of sweet toddler things. She climbs things. Like tables and stairs and clothes baskets. She gives me sweet baby kisses, often more slobbery than I want them to be. She feeds her breakfast to the dog, sings along to her favorite song, and rocks out to the radio. She's no big girl, but she's close(r).
As far as the sleeping stuff this month...eh. You sleep. With me. You are down to only one nap some days, which I actually kind of like because it will free up more of our days together.
At your 1 year appointment you weighed 18 pounds and 9 ounces and you were 29.65" long. Your head circumference was like 17 maybe? You wear size 12 months clothes and size 3 diapers.
I get comments on your coloring pretty often. You have blonde curls and big brown eyes. Today (9/2) was actually the very first day I put your hair in a ponytail. It is finally getting long again!!!
We are 100 percent off of baby food and formula now! I can't believe it. I have started sending dinner for you to the sitter that doesn't come in a jar. I fed you chicken nuggets the other day when I was busy, and French fries the day before yesterday. I am usually so good about feeding you good things, so I felt the need to confess...and let you know I am sorry about that!
Let's see...what else...you have 6 teeth!
Gosh baby, this year has been a whirlwind. I can remember one year seeming so far away, and now we're here and...well, its been a year. Ups and downs, hugs and kisses, tears and giggles. With every ounce you've gained or milestone you have reached, I have gained something too. You have such a sweet little personality and I am really looking forward to see how that blossoms in the coming year.
It's been hard but worth it.
Totally worth it.
Love ya Snooks.
Forever and always...
