she is a mess.
she is the best 'nuggler.
she is passionate...or just stubborn and dramatic.
she loves to love on abner.
she loves to show him that she is bigger.
her prayers are awesome.
her eyes are killer.
her laugh even more so.
she moves at her own pace...her very own, very slow, pace. my little duck always trailing behind.
she is day time potty trained, and goes without being prompted!
this girl can eat, and eat, and eat.
she tries hard to sing her abcs.
she can count to 15...even though i never worked with her.
she knows the colors of the rainbow...also not my doing!
she may be a bigger klutz than me.
she is still a mama's girl. on long drives it's torture that i can't hold her. "i need you! i 'nuggle you!"
but daddy is okay too.
nana is way up there on her list.
sometimes she just needs a hand to hold, an arm to lean on, a leg to grab...physical touch is her thing.
she is learning the ways of the world...especially when daddy is around.
some days it is tough.
i feel like she is older than she is, but i know that is eliza's influence.
she talks a ton and is as crazy as can be...until people come over, or we go somewhere.
she puts on a big front.
(thanks aunt corinne for this shot!)
i feel like songs will be written about her.
she is wild, she is sweet, she is stubborn, she is moody, she is hilarious, she is dorky, she is everything.

and keeping us on our toes!
going from sitting to crawling to sitting again.
standing against furniture.
screaming like he is in a lot of pain when he wants to nurse.
laughing at his sisters.
exploring the house.
banging toys against the floor, a chair, the table.
water...baths or swimming.
hanging out with daddy.
man this is getting harder and harder. he is keeping us so busy, but i also think i just want to prolong his first year. i cannot believe how old he is getting. dude has a ton of teeth. he weighs 21 pounds. as i lug him around it's hard to remember my little 36 weeker. he wants to go so bad. he is all over the place, and trying to cruise around furniture. active guy, but still as sweet as can be! he's happy 90% of the time. so quiet and content. this month was a little rougher though, getting 4 top teeth at once will do that you. extra snuggles and tickles help ease the pain. now, if we could just find a way to stop him from getting too big!
