You are toughening up against Chelsea’s teases and rough-housing and she is learning to be a little more gentle.
We’re learning about your likes and dislikes as we go.
Still as bald as Grandpa Stange! (alright, maybe not that bald)
You have recently begun pointing your dainty little fingers at objects, mostly at me, Daddy, or Chelsea, to imitate me when I’m saying “no.”
Although your size may be small, your personality is NOT! I love that you say hi to everyone, multiple times in one sitting! You always have the biggest smile and the cutest little hand-wave. I love it so much!
You do the cutest little fishy faces! You started doing it about a week ago and I finally caught it on camera this morning!
You’ve been enjoying books recently, too! It’s fun to look at all the pretty pictures with you!
You know how to go up and DOWN the stairs safely! It’s nice not to have to worry about you falling down the stairs anymore. At least, not as much.
You are still attached to me, a lot, but you tolerate others if they have treats.
I just love your sweet smile and your little babbling! “Woof woof,” “got it,” “thanks,” “ma-ma,” and “da-da,” “thanks,” and “ball” are your most common words.
We love you so much, Alexa! I can’t believe you’re almost an entire year! It doesn’t seem like you were born that long ago at all. You’re just growing much too fast, my dear, but I love getting to know you more and more each day. We love you!
