Dear Lydia: 12 & 13 months


dear lydia

Dear Lydia,

You’ve had quite the exciting two months since your last update. You change so much everyday it’s hard to keep up. The best words to describe you are wild and free! You are running, climbing, swinging, and laughing all the time. You can say the following words: Bye, Mama, Dada, Hey, Oatmeal, Banana, Duck, Step, Bunny, Bird, Ball (Words that start with “B” are a favorite at the moment).

You love to be active, rolling around on the ground, being chased by Finn, being rambunctious on the big bed, and shaking things around.

You love bunnies and ducks (toy ones), preferably ones you can hold in the palm of your hand. You love to scribble and “draw” on paper. You also love to help clean up and wipe down various surfaces in the house.

Here’s what else you’ve been up to the past couple months:

You are very busy, always playing and very rarely sitting still. You borrowed Finn's shirt in this pic and you make it look as cute as he does.

You have eight teeth and are always working on more. Here you're kinda sad that your mouth hurts but most of the time you maintain your happy-go-lucky attitude regardless of teeth pain.

You love Finn and are frequently copying things he does and vice versa. Y'all love each other and also annoy each other in equal amounts. lol

We can't leave our phones anywhere because you love them and hold them to your ear and say "Heh-doe".

You turned one on January 24th and there was an ice storm, but we still celebrated with family.

You still don't sleep much but when you do you're hair always looks awesome.

Ice cream is a wonderful remedy for your teething issues, plus you hold the cone like a pro.

You have a great sense of humor and like to play baby jokes on us and Finn. You also play along with our goofiness at bath time.

Much like Finn at your age, you have two speeds 100 or 0, so you keep us on our toes, but there’s never a dull moment with you and your brother. We’ve noticed an independent spirit in you and you’re also very affectionate. We look forward to seeing how those qualities grow over the next few months.

We love you so much and are so thankful for kids with such spirited personalities!

Love,

Mama
