I just wanted to do an update on Alayna because she is changing so fast.
A couple days ago we had her one year check up. She is 29 lbs and 30 1/2 inches. So she has slowed down on the weight gain and is getting taller everyday.
On August 23rd, she made the decision to walk and she hasn't stopped. I could tell by the look in her eyes that she was on a mission to walk all day and she did. I was so proud of her. I love how when she walks a few steps then falls and doesn't get aggravated, she just gets back up. Let's hope when she is older and falls that she'll just pick herself back up and try again.
Alayna eats everything we eat for our meals, she LOVES to drink water. She is no longer on the bottle as of the beginning of August. She still sleeps in her crib and would prefer two naps a day, but I stopped her morning nap. We'll probably try to put her in a big girl bed early because she is sleeping in what will soon be Chandler's bed.
Alayna loves music and will dance along to it, I'll even catch her grooving in her car seat.
She is a daddy's girl 100%. When he comes home from work all she wants is to be held by her daddy. She'll rest her head on his shoulder and she refuses to be put down. This process last at least ten minutes.
She can say:
blow her nose in a tissue
Make an elephant sound
give sweet kisses
wave hello and goodbye
give things back when I ask (most of the time)
I love this girl!!!!!
