This month was another big one, you found the stairs on your own and climbed all the way up them (with mama right behind you of course). After you found the stairs you didn't forget about them, you kept sneaking down the hallway.. not an easy feat since when you crawl your hands slap the laminate flooring. We also played outside in the snow, the first time you didn't like it so much because we didn't have a sled for you yet and I just plopped you on the ground! The second time you hung out in the sled with your mouth open and tongue out trying to catch all the flakes. This month also brought the purchase of your first real pair of shoes and a lot of standing on your own. We have gotten a half step out of you and that's all. I'm sure you'll be walking before your first birthday which is coming up way too soon! In music class this past week instead of gnawing on the drumsticks when Mr. Chris took them out you put one in each hand and banged them on the ground. It was really cool to watch you do that! I can't believe that the next monthly update I will write for you is the big 1 year! How has it already been almost a year? It's insane and I still trying to put it together in my mind that I'm planning your first birthday party. You are such an amazing baby and I love watching you grow and explore every day. You are such fun to be around and I couldn't imagine my life without you!
