You guys, how did this happen?! How do I have an almost ONE YEAR OLD??? I’ve had several drafts of monthly updates here, and have missed posting them because another month has already flown by!
- Started crawling at the Temecula Wine & Hot Air Balloon Festival – trying to get Liam’s ribbon fries! – 8 months
- Stood unassisted with a big smile on her face while playing with Liam and Sprinkles the zebra. 10 months
- Clapped for the first time while we were eating dinner, also a first – spaghetti! 8/26/2017 (11 months)
Nyah is wearing 12 month clothes, and is around 29″ tall. She loves playing churro/ice cream cart with Liam and riding on Sprinkles the Zebra. She has transitioned to just two naps a day (8:30 & 12:30), and has been doing that for a couple of months now. She still likes to be in bed by 6:30 pm every night and wakes up at 6:00 am (finally sleeping through the night!)
Nyah’s current favorite foods are blueberries, scrambled eggs, grape tomatoes, avocado, sautéed mushrooms, and pasta. She is such a messy eater and insists on feeding herself, but it’s so fun to see her enjoying her food!
Nyah loves music just as much as her big brother! We all enjoy going to music class together, and it’s so fun to see her interact with the older kids and play all of the instruments! She can even play the flute! Her favorite songs are currently The Wheels on the Bus, If You’re Happy & You Know It, and the Itsy Bitsy Spider.
She is using some signs and starting to say a few words! She can sign “all done” and “more”. Her first word was “Dada” and now says thank you, done, down, ball, jump, and Bubba (Liam).
One of her favorite things is escaping out the front or back door as soon as the door opens! She loves to go up & down our front step and climb in and out of Liam’s blue car. Nyah also loves to walk holding onto your fingers, but isn’t quite ready for us to let go. If she thinks you’re going to trick her into walking, she’ll just sit down. She is smart, and opinionated! I’m excited to see if she’ll walk before her first birthday!
I love this little girl & her quirky sense of humor so much! She has the funniest fake laugh, and loves playing “getcha” with Liam, which is essentially a game where Liam lays his head in her lap and she pulls his hair! Haha I love watching them play together more these days. The other night when I was putting Liam to bed I asked him what makes him happy…he said, “playing with Nyah makes me happy.” Hearing that melted my heart! They have no idea how much they will grow to mean to each other in the coming years!
I am feeling so lucky to be this sweet girls mama and feeling super emotional about her turning one! I feel like time is going by way too quickly and am just trying to soak in the moments.
