Talking and imitating a lot! Your new favorite game is to say “cheese!!!” whenever I pull out the camera! Are you a photographer’s daughter or what?? It’s the cutest thing in the whole wide world. In fact, in the picture below, you’re laughing after saying “cheese!”
You continue to be the sweetest, goofiest most amazing baby. I’m so in love with you and your smile and happy go lucky attitude! Your vocabulary is growing and you try to say all sorts of words…most sound like “dog” but that’s okay. :)
You are very super attached to me and will cry if anyone else tries to hold you…including daddy! Well, unless daddy is tossing you in the air, then you laugh!
When Daddy gets home from work, you run to him to greet him and give him a hug and a kiss. It melts me every time! You are super in love with your sister and I love watching the two of you together. You will run up to her and wrap your cute little baby arms around her and hold on as long as she’ll let you! When you wake up in the morning, you look to see where she is and then smile and laugh when you find her. You love to play with your sissy and she is still the person who can make you laugh the hardest!
Happy 15 months my precious little baby!! I LOVE YOU!

You are SUPER attached to me right now. I think you’re going through a phase. You want nothing to do with anyone else and if I even try to set you down you cry. I feel terrible, like I’m traumatizing you if I try to leave you with anyone…so I don’t! Sometimes I can’t even go potty without putting you down…how’s that for never wanting to leave my side ha! It’s okay though…I remind myself that one day you won’t need me, one day I will long for you to wrap your arms around me and never let go. So I’m savoring you right now. You are perfection.
You are seriously one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen and I know I say that because I’m your mother, but also, everyone else tells me too! You are too cute my love and your smile and giggle can light up an entire room!
Happy 14 months!
And the developments keep rolling on in!! Mommy’ heart is so full watching you grow and change and also a little sad to see you leaving babyhood behind! 😢
Four days ago (July 17) you started to stand, unassisted, for short periods of time and it was the cutest thing ever!! You would squeal with delight at yourself every time you successfully stood up and you would place your hands up over your head or behind your head, Ya know, to really show off!
Then, on Sunday (July 19) I discovered that your top left tooth had broken through! You are now the proud owner of three teeth! 😁
No wonder you’d been chewing on your hands and been a little fussy at night!
Then tonight…you did something incredible!!!! My sweet baby girl, YOU TOOK YOUR FIRST STEPS!!!! Are you kidding me?! I caught a quick video of you about to take some steps and then when you actually took your first steps I mistakenly only took a snapshot. I’m so mad at myself!!! I know you’ll do it again, so I will do my best to capture it, but for now, this video and one picture of you walking will have to do. You are so big girl right now!!!
Look at that face!!!! So happy. So proud. My heart is bursting!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
