The last month has been especially fun with Cate. Every day she wakes up wanting to be more observant. She wants to touch and taste more. She wants to sit up. And when we walk by the tree in the morning, she just stares. Today she touched it for the first time, and then noticed one of the wrapped boxes under the tree. (Boxes she’s seen before during the making of our Christmas card!)
She smiles and giggles often. That’s been part of her personality from the beginning, but the last month or two it’s really come alive. She loves going to the grocery and ballgames, where there are lots of people and new things to see. She also makes this great “clicking” sounds … and loves it when I make it too.
I can’t believe she’s already into the second half of her first year.
And I know there’s more to come. So much more. Right now she’s content to be standing and bouncing in the jumperoo. Yes, I’ve been told many times recently to enjoy these times of immobility. So I will, and look forward to what’s to come.
