1 year

Before we move on to 13 months old around here, I thought I would take some time to share about our sweet 1 year old. So what is she up to these days...?
We took some toys to the backyard to play and I took these pictures with one of the favorites right now. Makenah is super busy and really into playing with her toys. The best part about the toy box right now, is that you can dig in it and throw everything out. Her ball popper, books, tea set, doctor kit, and light up toys are favorites right now, along with her play table and scooter.
Makenah continues to be on the move, and we watch her get stronger and stronger on her feet. She loves to push her toys around, and cruise the furniture. She will make her way around the living room, making sure to hit the most interesting spots. When she gets somewhere or touches something that she knows is not for her, she shakes her head "no no." Does that keep her from pulling on those curtains? We're working on that. Ha! :) 
We continue to be proud of her daily routine. We are so thankful for a great sleeper, and impressed with how well she feeds herself. She can eat and enjoy most foods with us. She's a big girl now. 
It seems we are always on the look out for a new development around here. New skills, sounds, name it, and we're seeing it! Now that Makenah is getting good at imitating, we are having fun practicing new skills. We had a great 1 year doctor's appointment, and we are so thankful for a happy and healthy little girl. Our little ladybug is 20 lbs. and 29 inches long. 
As you have seen, Casey and Makenah have become buddies. Seeing them together makes me happy, and I start to picture what their relationship will be like as she grows. I see patience in him, so I hope that he will be special to her.
Makenah is a silly girl. Very animated and seems to know how to be funny. We are grateful for her easy going nature, too. She will tease with us, and it's fun to get her giggling. 
We are pretty proud of this 1 year old. What a wonderful year it has been. 
We love you Makenah Grace!
