Dear Indigo: 1 year old

Dear Indigo,

You've made it to your first birthday!!!  Happy birthday sweet girl!!  We love you so much, and are so proud of you.  You are such a sweet little lady; observant, laid-back, tender-hearted, curious, content, snuggly, quiet, independent and loving.  It has been so much fun watching your personality develop these last few months.  You've cut 6 teeth, and I fear your molars are coming now.  We starting bringing you to nursery on Sundays, and it is always pretty teary because you know that we are dropping you off, but you are a brave girl and calm down after a short bit.  The day before your birthday, as we were decorating the Christmas tree, you stood up in the middle of the room and took three steps towards me!!  Walking of your own accord!  Crawling is still much faster, but you are taking more and more steps.  Your current record is 8.  You've added Da (James) and ma (more) to your vocab, mostly for pointing to something (usually food) and wanting it.  Also you are drinking solo from a sippy cup, and still need some help from a regular one.  We bundle up most days and go for a walk, which you LOVE.  This makes me so happy, as I have dreams of many walks in the future.  Also you charm the pants off the lady at our local chocolatier, which is a dangerously close 0.5 miles away.  We may have taken that walk a few times.  But sweet little Indy, you haven't had dessert until we celebrated your birthday with a chocolate cupcake.  You very neatly ate up every last crumb - and then started ma - ing and pointing at the tray of leftovers on the table.

Happy birthday Indigo!!  We love you!

Mama, Dada, Da (James)
