Hollyn Monroe: 12 Months!

*You are standing up and squatting all the time by yourself and you're so proud!  You just smile from ear to ear when we catch you standing.

*You do pretty well at cruising around things, but no walking yet!  You like to take steps holding a hand or two and sometimes will take a step without a hand. You are not quite confident enough to go it alone. :)

*You weigh 20 lbs and are in the 88% in height, 36% in weight, and 50% in head circumference. You are wearing a size 3 diaper and 12-18 months in clothing.

*You are still a momma's doubt about it.

*You are loving green beans, carrots, and peas these days!  You aren't eating that much baby food either.  When you want more of something you usually squeeze your hands together like you're waving "it" close to you.

*You are still a speed crawler.

*As soon as you walk a few steps, you can go to school!

*You are really starting to understand what we are saying lately and we are getting lots of smiles and excitement when we mention something you want! I'm praying our communication excelerates quickly because there are lots of grunts and squeals when we don't get it right!

*You are about to get another tooth on the bottom!

*Your hair is growing and growing in the back! I see a few curls forming just like your sisters!

*You love the Tupperware drawer. :)

*You really don't want me to leave your side right now and you scream/squeal until I pick you up. It depends on the day how long I let you go on without giving in! As soon as you're picked up tears! Let's just say, you've got us all wrapped around your finger.

*I love our bonding time during nursing and I'm not sure that I'll be giving that up anytime soon.  I love our time together with few distractions and I'm not sure that you're ready either.

*We are so thankful for your sweet little life, Hollyn. You brought us joy after our hearts had been broken and we are beyond grateful to the Lord for His faithfulness. We are looking forward to watching you as you go through growing spurts and reach milestones in the coming months. We love watching your personality shine through more and more each day and we can't wait to see how God uses you. We love you precious girl.
