I keep telling people she just turned one, but now that I think about it she's more like 13-and-a-half months. How did that happen? We feel like Faye sort of skipped babyhood and went straight to a running-around toddler.
Faye still nurses once or twice a day. I almost quit when she went through a biting phase at 10 or 11 months, but we worked it out, and I'm so glad we did.
In the last week, she's started to say a few words clearly. "Mommy" and "baby" are said often and with excitement. These first words are the cutest!
I sewed a dress for this girl! It's much cuter in person than in this awful phone picture. And it fits her better when she doesn't have that right-after-dinner full belly.
My boys have always been pretty well-behaved while running errands. But this Faye-girl refuses to sit in shopping cart, freaks out if she sees a treat or something she wants, and begs to be allowed to run around the store. We make our grocery trips quick these days!
Faye likes to carry a purse or a bag around at all times. Sometimes even the loaf of bread she always steals off the shelf will do.
We always start the day with cute pigtails or a nice bow in her hair. But by naptime she is a mess!
Sometimes I just watch her for a few minutes and feel so happy that I have a cute, busy baby girl full of personality and spunk. We sure love her!
