14 Months

Carys is 14 months old today and I can't believe that a year ago we were getting some of our first smiles from our sweet girl!  So, first a flashback to last October when Carys was 2 months old.

Carys, those first few months with you felt like a magical blur.  Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but there were so many nights before and even after I met your dad that I felt like it was never going to happen.  When you were born, I can't even begin to tell you the overwhelming joy that you brought both of us.  Even today, I'm so unbelievably thankful that God has given us such a precious gift, and has chosen me to be your mommy.

Now, at 14 months, you've become quite the busy little girl and are always keeping us entertained.  You look so much more grown up to me now, and you always impress us with how much you are learning everyday. 

You are constantly on the go, and have gotten so much faster.  It's getting harder to keep up with you!  You still love to read, but don't have the patience for more than one book at a time.  You have decided that you hate to get dressed.  You love playing with clothes and carrying them around the house, but have no interest in actually putting them on.  Shoes on the other hand are a different story - you love shoes and always bring them to us to put on them on you!  We are definitely starting to see your stubborn side, and have learned that you can be VERY expressive when you don't want to do something - like getting dressed!

You are very affectionate and are always giving hugs and kisses to mommy, daddy, your toys, and even yourself if you happen to pass a mirror!  The only real word you say is Mumma - you used to say Dada, but now when I ask you to say anything, the response is always Mumma.  Can't say that I mind that one bit though!  Your other "word" has been and still is ah-dah.  You say this ALL the time for everything! 

You are officially done with bottles.  A few weeks ago, I finally was able to get you to drink milk from a sippy cup, so after that I put all of your bottles away and we've never looked back!  You never seemed to miss them, so I'm glad it was easier than I expected. 

We can't believe you are getting big so fast, but we are having so much fun watching you grow.  We love you sweet girl!

Oh, and we have to say...

 Happy Birthday to Grandma Alice!  

She is an amazing Mom and Grandma, and loves her Bug so much.  
We are so blessed to have her in our lives.  

Grandma, We hope you are having tons of fun in Germany, but hurry home because we miss you! 
We love you so much!!

Note:  I just have to say when I started this post it was October 7th, but since it is now past midnight it will post on the 8th - the days just aren't long enough! ;)  Anyway, now I really need to get in bed!

  1. Carys!

    Just returned home from
    Germany and the first thing I did was to check your "blog." My heart is bursting. I love you, sweet girl. I am so lonesome for you and can't wait to see you. Look for a Halloween package this week from G'ma and G'pa!
