London is officially ONE and even though we are only a few days in, I couldn't WAIT to update you all on what she's doing. I feel like if I hold off until the end of the month, she'll be doing hand stands and driving ... so I better do it now! ;)
First of all, we had an amazing time celebrating her birthday! (You can get all of the details here!) She took her first steps on Father's Day, which was super special ... and then every day that followed she would take more and more. I can say now that we officially have a walker on our hands! It's literally the cutest thing ever, and I will never get tired of her wobbly little self coming toward me...arms out to the sides and a grin from ear to ear.
Favorite Food: Cheese + Hummus. Cheddar, mozzarella, feta..she doesn't discriminate ;) This little chica loves her cheese! Also, she can't get enough of the homemade red pepper hummus we get from Sophia's, a Greek shop down the street from where we live. I spread that on a piece of oatmeal bread and she goes crazy!
Favorite Thing To Do: Be outside! She loves to splash around in her "kiddie" pool or sit in the grass trying to eat every single thing she can find!
Most Aww-Worthy Moment: Open mouth kisses, her little babbling noises when she's trying to say ALL the words, + when she held up her one little pointer finger in the middle of digging into her smash cake. Melt my heart!
Most Exciting Thing She Did: Walked! She is also saying so many words now: tree, ball, "uh oh" ... She loves to imitate everything we say!
Biggest Thing I've Learned: One year olds have an attention span of like...less than 5 seconds! Ha! I'll gather four or five books and get all snuggled up with her like we are about to have an amazing reading/cuddle sesh, and I'm about two pages in before she's wiggling to get down on the floor and play. I'm hoping one day soon we can make it through an entire book! ;)
