ONE YEAR OLD!

I know they say the baby days just fly by, but boy do they.  I blinked and my baby girl turned one.








Milestones:

Seven teeth
Lots of mimicking our actions and and sounds we make
Different facial expressions, including a pretty mean looking stink eye
Pulling blankets over her own head to play peek-a-boo
Saying "Hiiiiiiiii" and "Heeeyyyy"
Lots of finger pointing






Likes:

Being chased---she'll peak around a corner until we start to come after her and then she RUNS!
Cats---Violet LOVES cats.  She got a book for her birthday called Meow Meow! from her cousin and she went nuts over it.  We also saw a cat on a leash on our outing today which was pretty exciting for her.  
Eating whatever we're eating---she's happiest when she's got food in her mouth.  
Being outside---she loves going for walks, exploring the front and backyard where she likes to pick up and crumble leaves, and swinging.

Dislikes:

As expected, Violet doesn't like being told "no" or not getting what she wants.  Tough life, huh?  The other day I found The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman: The Famous, Inspiring Story of One Woman's Courageous Battle for Freedom amongst her pile of board books.  She's quite the oppressed little reader.






Life Now-a-Days:

Violet is such a sweet, little girl.  She has a smile on her face from the moment she wakes up.  I usually wake up to hearing her on the baby monitor saying "hiiiiiiii" to her little lamb security blanket.  When I go in her room to get her, she offers me a pacifier, though sometimes it's a fake-out.  All day long she is so generous with her hugs and kisses.  She loves to share everything from her toys to her half-chewed food (yummy, right?).



Happy birthday, sweet Violet!
