Happy 12 Months!

Happy 12 months to my precious souvenir!! We made it munchi!!! One whole year!! Boy oh boy what a year it has been too, huh? We have come such a long way since you made your entrance and yet it seems like yesterday that I was pregnant with you!!

You had an amazing birthday party yesterday (pictures to come) and you had such an outpouring of love from your friends and family. It was such a joy to see. It really moved me to see how many people love you so much!! You had a milk and cookies themed party and your nanny, Liz, helped make your day so so special! She helped decorate, did all the baking, and even helped host your day yesterday. You love her so much and I love seeing the bond you two share! ๐Ÿ™‚

You were quite the princess yesterday, in a gorgeous Luna Luna Copenhagen purple sequence dress with a custom white lace crown. You looked every bit the part of a princess 1 year old haha! I even color coordinated my dress so we matched a little! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Newest Developments:

  • You are a walker!!! You chose your first birthday to take your very first steps!! 10 to be exact! In front of EVERYONE! Girlfriend, you sure do love an audience! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • You are really talking up a storm! You pick up words every day and you communicated with us so easily now! You continue to speak AND sign. It’s amazing. Really amazing. Your spoken words include: dog, mama, dada, balloon, bubbles, all done, that, book, ball and you smack your lips when you want something or someone to come over to you haha! Your signed words include: hi, milk, more, food, water, outside, shoes, all done, bird, hat…
  • You’ve also started to experience more complex emotions! You’ve had your first experience with anger my love! It’s so hard to see you get angry but also so interesting to see your little mind try to work through. And with the new anger emotion guess what? You finally hit me for the very first time, with intention. Oh man, that was rough! You’ve done it a few times now and we are working on curbing that behavior, but hey it’s a milestone, right? Haha. I still love you even when you hit! ๐Ÿ˜‰

About Em

After the loss of our first pregnancy, we took a much needed vacation to Costa Rica to enjoy each other and clear our minds. Well, as luck would have it, we brought home much more than great memories and great tans...our own little Costa Rican souvenir. Here is our journey!
