Today is the day my little baby Ada turns one. All day today has been moments of laughing, followed by me bursting into tears. Does this whole mom emotional thing ever get any better? 😉 It feels like just yesterday I was holding my little girl for the very first time and now she is one.
It has been an absolute joy watching Ada grow, change, and learn. This past year has been the best year of my life and I can’t even remember what life was like before Ada. She has completed our family and lives so perfectly and completely.
Ada has to be the sweetest, calmest baby ever! She loves to snuggle and will stop doing what ever she is doing for a quick snuggle. Her favorite thing to do right now is to summon you over by opening and closing her hands in which she demands to snuggle for a second. As she snuggles up to you she says, “Aww.” It is seriously the sweetest thing you will ever see! She is happy pretty much all the time, unless she has skipped a nap then she is Miss. Grumpy Pants.
She has finally figured out her walker and she is rolling all around the house. She loves to follow me around while I am cleaning or cooking. It is the greatest because I can get so much done while she is in there! She scoots and army crawls backwards. I am hoping that she will get to forward crawling soon. But to be honest, I am just relieved that she can army crawl backwards – she is finally on the move! 😉
She officially has 3 teeth now – two lower and an eye tooth. I am certain that she is working on her front teeth and the other eye tooth so sleep has been difficult for her. She has been getting up a lot these past two months. I hope that she finishes teething and starts sleeping through the night again soon!
She is constantly repeating what Randy and I say. Her favorite right now is to play with her dog and say woof! woof! It is pretty darn cute! She can say – mama, dada, no, star, dog, kitty, bye-bye, yeah, duck, bath, and whoa. Whenever she is awake, she is constantly babbling a way. She is definitely a talker!
She still loves music and will dance and sing anytime she hears it. She also still loves her books. She can sit there flipping through her books forever. Her favorite stuff animals are her dogs, she usually has one with her at all times. Ada is still a great eater and will eat whatever I give her. She loves to feed herself now and even pretends to feed herself during play time. So she has a spoon and a small bowl in her hands all the time.
We love you sweet Ada Marie! You are the sunshine in our lives, you brighten the room with your sweet smile and your contagious laugh! We couldn’t imagine life without you! Happy Birthday my sweet, darling girl!
