ok – it’s been three weeks since alex’s birthday, and it’s about time for me to make sure i document some things about her at one glorious year old:
…she is a sweet, sweet girl who likes to laugh. she is pretty social, and waves hello to anyone and any animal. she also sometimes waves to the trees, bushes and parking lots.
she loves music and has a particular knack for percussion. (like her dad) she perks up immediately and dances with any song that has a catchy beat, even if it’s just a short commercial. she seems to be developing a like for reggae, and she will turn anything into a drum.
she loves animals – especially cats. she spends a lot of time chasing the cat and dog, and calling most things “cat.” her other words include “mama,” “dada,” and “baba.”
she has this funny, sneaky grin when she’s about to do something that she knows will get her redirected – like trying to eat the dog food.
she thinks being tickled is hilarious.
she has no fear of dirt and mess.
she likes to be outside.
she can be very serious when she is observing a new situation. one friend once said that alex seemed to be looking into her soul.
she is taking her sweet time with walking independently, like she did with crawling. but she does like to push her walking toy.
she eats almost anything we give her. her favorite foods include soy yogurt, chicken and tofu.
she has totally turned our lives upside down, and i wouldn’t trade it for anything.
