The Baby Is TWELVE Months

Wow, baby! Look at you!

If I had a quarter for every time your Dada and I talked about time flying by, your first year's tuition at Furman would be paid (wink). 

There's not a day that goes by that we are not talking about how fun you are. All babies are glorious, but you are also COOL. You have a very distinct and unique personality.

We are incredibly in love with you and everything you do.

Wearing: You're in 12 month clothes and 12-18 month clothes. You have some 18-month jammies that we occasionally put you in, but there is definitely room to grow. You are in size 3 diapers for day and night, and Pampers is our brand of choice. 

Talking: You have a big voice and you love to talk and holler. Here are the words you can say: Mama, Dada, book, duck, dog-dog. You love pointing at things and saying "DAT!" when you want them. You have a lot of tricks, and this month we've conquered "How big is the baby?" (you put your hands up high as we say "soooooo big!") and "Are you a boy?" (you shake your head no). You also go "night night" and lay your head down whereever you are -- on a pillow, on the couch, in your birthday cake. You can point to things we ask about, and if we say "Hello, hello?" you hold your hand up to your ear like a phone. 

Moving: Crawling so quickly and standing/balancing on your own, but no independent walking yet without holding our hands or holding on to a walker. You are soooo close!

Sleep: You are sleeping from 7p-7a, taking two 30 minute naps a day on the weekends, and taking one hour-long afternoon nap at daycare. 

Eating: You are off purees and you are doing finger foods only. We are just wrapping up our nursing journey together and you will soon be given cow's milk. 

You are still in the 2nd room at daycare but will likely be transitioning up to the next room in June. You love your teacher and she loves you. She tells us that you cheer on the younger babies as they accomplish new tricks (like sitting at the big table and eating table food) and that your signature move is bringing books to the new kid in the class. You are now the oldest baby out of four in the room.

We will not be doing monthly updates any longer, which is probably a good thing, because you hate the stickers I put on your white onesie. Getting a good shot before you rip up the sticker or try to hurl yourself off the chair is proving to be a challenge. Sayonara, monthly updates! But I'm glad we did them, because while I feel as if you still look like my little newborn baby, I see that I'm wrong. You have grown and changed so much. 

Love you, dear baby. You are our world, our whole world.

  4. Doesn't time just fly with babies?! She is so precious! Can't believe she's 1 already!

  5. 12 months?! How just how does it happen (and if they are getting older that means we are too!) Mama tears coming in hot and fresh!

  6. This is too sweet! It truly does fly by in the blink of an eye!

  7. Sweet girl. Can't believe she's 12 months! I remember when you were pregnant with her, past your due date, and just ready for that baby to come on out:) And now she's been here a whole year. It really is crazy how fast time goes when you have children. It's a bit scary sometimes! Hoping that the next 12 months go a bit slower:)

  8. So sweet. Time really does fly by!

  9. So sweet. Time really does fly by!

  12. she's such a pretty little girl!

  13. I cannot believe she is already 1! Time really does fly! She is such a pretty girl - Happy Birthday Camille!

  14. Her putting her head down and going "night night" anywhere has got to be the cutest thing ever! It's so funny to hear how time flies once the baby is born because being pregnant feels like time has stopped! She's such a cute little girl and loved hearing about her personality!

  15. She is scrumptious! Happy Birthday sweet girl!

  16. Oooo those monthly pictures got HARD there at the end, didn't they?! hah Lawter would start trying to crawl off the chair every time I backed up to take the pic giving me a heart attack as I lunged forward to catch her! haha Happy 12 months Camille, and could you PLEASE teach Lawter how to be a great sleeper?!?! This tired mama is beyond jealous of that good snoozing!

  17. Happy Birthday, sweet Camille! When I first started reading your blog, you and Ian were engaged and I've loved watching your family grow! Beautiful baby girl!
