My big one year old! This last month of her first year has been all about walking, gaining independence, playing with toys, and talking. Most of her words sound like variations of 'mom' and 'dad' but she really tries mimicking words. Right now she likes saying 'light' (dight), 'dog' (dog-t), 'arf' (the sound dogs and birds supposedly make), 'off' (when she's looking at lights). She likes pointing at things she wants and things she is curious about. She loves dancing and singing. Her hugs and cuddles are even more sincere, and she loves touching soft things, laying her cheek on them, and saying 'awww.'
