Is that not the cutest little face that you’ve ever seen??

We somehow forgot Miriam’s jacket, so we had to make do with Gabe’s vest.

It’s time to do kid updates.  My baby is not really a baby any more. She is in that in between stage where she isn’t really a baby anymore but not  quite a toddler. Shall we call it the Baddler stage maybe?? Here are some of the stats on my precious girl:

*Miriam still has her diva’ish tendencies going on. She loves to be held a lot still, and she gets very jealous if Chris or I hold anyone else ever (even Sofia and Gabe). She sometimes even gets jealous when friends of mine hold their own children. She may be a little diva, but she is a cute one.

*She talks non stop, but only she knows what she is saying. It is so cute when she comes up and talks to us. Besides saying Mama and Dada, she also says hi.

*She is more and more steady on her feet every day.

*She is into everything and climbing onto everything.

*She has the best sense of humor. She is always hamming it up trying to get us to all be silly with her.

*She still wakes up once in the middle of the night to nurse for a few minutes. I’m sure sometime soon we will cut off her one night time feeding, but her overall sleep has improved so much (including naps).

*Gabe and Sofia both adore Miriam still, but they do not love when she messes with their toys. They often will play on the top bunk bed to escape from her.

*I love love love my one year old, but I have to admit that 1 is a hard age for me. I think that in many ways, one year olds are harder than babies.

We love this little girl so much. She consumes a lot of my parenting energy right now, but her cuteness is just as intense as her energy. I was away from her for 7 hours today while I worked (I work one day a week), and I missed her so much by the time that I got home.

She is getting more beautiful and more expressive all of the time. Those eyes!

And very nice stats.

What a sweetie! She’s beautiful. And I also think that 1 is a very trying age. Geneva is definitely into EVERYTHING!
