13 Months Old !

I'm not really sure how long I'll continue to post Elaina's milestones since she has turned one ... maybe until she stops doing new things each and every month. So, it looks like they'll never stop !

It's hard to believe that a month ago, we celebrated our baby's first birthday. Whew ! Where does the time go ? Elaina just gets sweeter by the day and is as much fun as ever. Eric and I have loved every minute of her. I guess that's one thing that has remained a constant over the past 13 months. That's one thing that will never change. She is 100 % lovable.

So here's what Elaina has been doing as a 12 month old :

* one more new tooth on the bottom row has pushed through, another is slightly visible
* Elaina is a meat- eater and LOVES all beef bologna ! No more baby food, no more bottles !
* Went swimming twice this past month, doesn't care for the water no matter the temperature
* Taking on monkey-like characteristics as she climbs and pulls herself onto everything ! ( and I mean everything !)
* Beginning to say more words : "hereyougo" "thankyou" "Woof ! Woof !" " doggie"
* Loves playground slides !
* Her "Scum" is already healing up ! I'm beginning to think that the chlorine in the pool had something to do with it's recent disappearance. Yeah ! Only a slight trace left.
* Posed for a 4 generation family picture
* Made transition from infant carrier to forward facing car seat. I love being able to see her !
* Spending 3 days at home in the care of " Camp Grandma"

* Able to walk backwards
* Can point to her (and Mommy's) eyes, nose, mouth and ears
* GROWING ! Every time I look in at her sleeping in her crib, she fills more and more of her bed space. She is growing like crazy !

Yet another fabulous month for all of us !!
