happy 14 months, my sweet girl!
a year ago, you were two months old and being blessed at church. crazy how different you are today!
i seriously can't get over you and your cuteness. sometimes, it feels like my whole body is going to go into sensory overload because it can't handle all the pent-up love i have for you.
i know. super cheesy. but, during those moments, i just have to hug you and kiss the crap out of those chubby cheeks of yours.
i'm starting work here soon. just 1-2 days a week. nothing big, but at the same time, it's huge.
i missed you tonight after an hour at the gym. i don't know what 9 hours is going to do to me. don't worry though, daddy will be home to take care of you. just be sure to tell him how much you miss me and that you love me more. ;)
with it being your 14 month birthday today, here is what you are up to as of now:
-you like to tell us no. but, not in an annoying i'm-a-toddler-and-i-have-dominance-over-you sort of way, but in the kind of way that makes our hearts melt and we want to say yes to all of your demands. your dad usually tells you no by shaking a finger at you, so you picked that up and usually when you don't want something, you give a little finger shake back and forth and through your tears say, "uh-uh" over and over. it's about the cutest thing ever.
-you are obsessed with belly buttons. i can't lie down anymore without my shirt being lifted up. today you discovered that you have a belly button too! life is so fun, huh?
-you love shoes and will match them up and then proceed to have us help you try all of them on.
-you've gotten over the crying phase when we put you down for naps or for bed. usually i will snuggle you right before bed, but nowadays, you like to forego that part and you point to your crib instead. i get the picture.
-you like to get people's attention by waving, but then you're really shy about it and will hide behind me every time.
-you're obsessed with animals. i went to target the other day with the intent of buying you your first baby doll. i was letting you pick out which one you wanted, but you were too interested in the dog stuffed animals in the next aisle. i'm sure you can guess which one won.
-speaking of animals, you can now say, "dog". or rather, "duh". any time a dog barks in the neighborhood, we know about it. you haven't learned a whole lot more words since last month. you definitely know that 'dada' is your dad and 'mama' is me. how about you call me mama for the rest of your life? because it's pretty much adorable.
-you enjoy swimming with your bff, ashtyn czarnocki.
-you think copper's bed was designed especially for you.
-you're afraid of holiday inflatable decorations.
-and you love balloons.
you're the coolest 14 month old there ever was, sweet cheeks.
