Madison–We are only 1 month away from you being 1 year old! We want to make sure to savor this month and not let it go too fast. We are busy planning your 1st birthday party and taking pictures for your invitations. Even though it is hard to believe you are almost 1, it seems like you have been in our lives forever.

Milestones: you do a great job standing while leaning on the couch and taking steps side to side while holding on. You are starting to loose interst in your red car and standing toy. You love your pink push car, going for walks and reading books. You favorite books are 5 Little Ladybugs, Goodnight Thumper and anything with a flap. You are showing interest in imitating animal sounds. When you eat, you show us more and finished using signs you have learned.
Special Moments: At the beginning of this month, we went to the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort with Uncle Michael, Aunt Heather and your cousins. You had a great time in the beach entry area and ate a handful of sand. We also got you a convertible car seat this month. You are still facing backwards, but you love getting to sit up straighter and look out the window. Towards the middle of the month, Katie came to visit us from NYC! We had a great time playing with her. You started back at school this month in the Guppy room. You are so happy to be with your friends and teachers!
