Happy 13 months Sass!!

How crazy this last month flew by, seems like I was just planning her 1st B-day party. That day quickly came and went and now it is a month later. Doesn't even seem like it! I thought I would use this post to brag, yes brag, about my little girl. She is truly amazing in every sense of the word.

Today she discovered she can walk backwards, and this just tickles her pink. She finds it hilarious and laughs so hard when she does it. She is so funny and I can't help but smile and laugh too.

She knows the difference between a cat and a dog. She can point them out in pictures.

She knows upward of 25 ASL signs. I can even sign to her, without saying the word and she responds correctly. I can also sign and she says the word back.

She can say Mom, mama, mommy, dad, daddy, dada, cat, kitty, dog, doggy, baba (she says this directly to her sippy of milk, she asks for it this way too), ball, banana, ut oh, hi, hello, bye, bye bye, bobby?? I have no idea what she means with bobby but she says it often, not, baby, yeah? (she says it with a question inflection) and I think I am missing some...

I can ask her to give me something and she usually does. She understands animals and their sounds. She can sing songs with me, and on cue sing the next part without me saying it first.

She loves to climb right now, anything she can climb she does! She likes to always eat what I am eating, she'll stand by me and say "Mmmmmm" until I give her some. I like to say to her, "This is mommy's mmmmm, eat your mmmmm" hahaha.

She really only drinks water and milk. I have tried giving her juices now and then, usually because a friend offers it, and she hates it...wants nothing to do with it....Fine by me..:) At least she loves water.

She is still in size 4 diapers. She generally wears 18-24 month old sized clothes.

She loves stuffed animals, sometimes it seems she likes the more than her other toys.

She is just changing and doing more things everyday that just amaze me. How quickly they learn to do things, blink and you'll miss something big.

Her baby ways are quickly fading, how quick those moments are here before they are gone. People like to rush milestones, wished they do things quickly, but when they do that, they miss the stage they are currently at that they will never get back. They have their whole lives to walk, talk, eat solid food....enjoy the infant stage while it some cases, its over before a year. That is such a fraction of time. I often times miss infant Sass, the Sass that let me love on her all I wanted without pushing away to go play. Sometimes I wish I held onto her longer, rocked her more, held on to her little hands and feet longer, because I will never get those days back. My little girl, no longer an infant, but fast becoming a big girl.

Ok, enough of that, here are a couple recent pics. Here lately she started making this squinting face when I grab the camera and point it towards her...she cracks me up...
