- scooting around the floor on her tummy
- watermelon, cheese, feeding herself
- putting things on her head (except hats, of course)
- balls and blocks
- reorganizing her toys (seriously, she could put her toys in and out of a basket/kleenex box for 20 minutes)
- snuggling with mama
- tossing food she doesn't approve of onto the floor while maintaining eye contact
- dogs! cats! kids! anyone!

She is getting so wiggly and is curious about everything. She loves to crawl, though it's mostly still army crawling... one leg is just starting to get involved though! She laughs in my face when I say "No, don't touch. That's hot." when she gets too close to the (currently off) fireplace. We have a gate that will be installed before the fall, but she really should get used to not going near it. She has started to give us a smidge of attitude, demanding that we share any and all food with her. Her default sound is laughter, for which I am still so grateful, but she has a pretty impressive holler too. She will go to most people if they look friendly and have their arms out, but will also politely decline such invitations if she's not in the mood. She still loves to cuddle with me, but they are becoming shorter and shorter as life is getting too exciting to sit still. She is getting to be so much FUN, as she loves to play and chatter away and laugh. Time is seriously flying by!
It's hard to believe that she's been in our lives for an entire year now. All of the cliches are true: It's hard to imagine life without her, she is growing up so fast, and it is terrifying to love someone so deeply.
My baby is one year old! <3 <3 <3
