Thirteen months old!

I certainly don't imagine I will keep up with Charlotte's monthly updates indefinitely. Life is too busy for that, especially with our upcoming move. BUT! I have the time and the motivation to write an update for this month, so I'm going for it. With a slightly different structure/layout.

At thirteen months, Charlotte loves: exploring, balloons, animals, reading books/ turning the pages/ pointing out dogs in the pictures, playing with anything electronic (phones, our iPad, wireless speaker, remote controls, etc.), being outside, and sorting things.

She is awesome at taking things OUT and putting them back in. She thinks climbing the stairs is a total blast and this month she actually mastered coming back down the stairs safely on her own. Of course we are behind her both ways, but she doesn't need any help. She also LOVES waving at people and getting their attention so she can grin and wave some more.

Words: Dada, dog, go, Lala (Lily- her white lamb), Ba (ball), and every once in a great while: mama.

Signs: her own version of "more" and her own version of "all done". Seeing her sign is one of my absolute favorite things in life. She is so precious, signing for more whenever she sees something she wants :)

Favorite foods: fruit, of any kind. She loves grapes, blueberries, clementines, bananas, and applesauce. She is also a big fan of cheese, hummus, peanut butter, and green peas. She eats baked oatmeal with whole fat Greek yogurt for breakfast most mornings, but also enjoys eggs with cheddar cheese if that's on the menu.

Great things this month: we took a road trip to visit Charlotte's maternal grandparents for their birthday. She was a champ in the van, only whining a little bit for the last fifteen minutes of the six hour trip. What a relief!

Words to describe Charlotte: curious, determined, independent, playful, friendly, sassy, brave, silly, and happy. 

This girl brings us an unbelievable amount of joy. We love seeing her grow!!
