The first month of your second year is already behind us. You are as cute and sweet as ever and I feel like you've grown up a ton in the past month. Your hair is growing longer (and starting to curl a little bit!!), you are quick on your feet (when you're holding onto things), you can stand up by yourself for about 10 seconds at a time, and you are taking a few steps here and there. But you are certainly not a "walker" yet. And I'm totally okay with that. I have a feeling you'll be walking by Christmas... talk about the best gift ever!
A few days after you turned 1, you celebrated your second Halloween. But since last year you were only 9 days old on Halloween, this was the first year you wore a costume and went trick-or-treating! And by trick-or-treating I mean you were bundled up in 20 layers of clothes and buckled into the wagon while Hailey hopped in and out to trick-or-treat :)
A few days later we had a fun day playing in the leaves at grandma & grandpa's house!
You've started to do this darling little "cheese face"....
You wore your first pony tail.... :)
We went to Jeff City...
We watched daddy run his first 10k!
And had lots of other miscellaneous fun!
And if one thing is certain, it's that you love to eat. You have no idea how big of a deal that is to me. Your sister's picky and just plain terrible eating habits have been a thorn in my side since she was 15 months old, and it's SUCH a relief for me to know that you will eat whatever I put in front of you. Please, oh please, keep it up!
Last but not least, we took a trip to Kansas City to visit mommy's college friends. It's the first time we've all been together since anyone but me has had kids and it was so much fun for everyone to be together!
Until next month, baby girl!
Love you forever,
