Addison Sophia: 13 Months


Dear Addie::

We are a month into our second year and so far so good. Granted, we are also a couple weeks into Daylight Savings Time ending, which means we are a couple weeks into our sleep being all wacky. What's wrong with getting up at 8:30 again instead of 7:30? I should just be happy you aren't getting up at 6:30 still.

You are changing on a daily basis. You are constantly surprising me. Constantly wearing me out. You are so active and so antsy. You are on the move and interested in everything. You are experiencing some major separation anxieties. But you are growing and learning and changing constantly.

You are cruising around furniture like it's nothing now. And even better you have figured out how to sit down. Awhile ago you started pulling yourself up like it was nothing, but you were terrified to sit down. You would look down and then just start crying. But then you realized that it wasn't so bad to just sit down, so now you get up and down all the time. Lately you have tried letting go on whatever you are holding on to for a few seconds while standing still. You aren't a fan of trying to walk while holding on to our hands though; you act like you don't trust us. You are learning to trust us though and getting more comfortable moving around and walking.

You are still eating anything and everything. I am constantly surprised when I give you something and you eat it. You would think I wouldn't be surprised anymore, but I am. I gave you sausage lentil soup and you loved it. Who knew?! Of course you still get cranky when you get hungry. And the newest thing you do is if you see me cooking then you have a complete meltdown, deciding that you need to be fed at that moment, and you cry and scream the entire time I cook. It is nice to be done with bottles and formula. You love whole milk. You just drink it right up.

You are getting about six teeth right now or possibly more. It always seems like you get all your teeth at once, which makes it pretty miserable sometimes. So you haven't felt great lately. On top of that you are going through some major separation anxiety. Major major separation anxiety. But we are getting through it.

You are an awesome little girl. You are growing so fast. I have a hard time believing that you are already a year old. A month and a year to be exact. It always amazes me how much you change. How much you grow. How much you are learning. I love seeing the person you are becoming. I love you so much little girl.

Love, Mama
