Lanelle turned 1 on the 8th. She loved her shopping cart most of all and with all the practice behind it, she has now moved on to walking without it. She changing so fast, I'm starting to feel that I can hardly remember her as a baby. She is really good at demanding what she wants and gets her point across strongly. Her sitter always comments on what an independent little girl she is. She seems like such a strong little character. She and Kellen have been playing together more lately and she doesn't let him push her around at all. They giggle playing silly games of peek-a-boo or chasing. Kellen is understanding how to play at her level more. Mostly she is easy going (unless I'm trying to keep her away from the toliet, her latest obsession). I love watching her observe things around her. She seems to take new things with interest and ease. She is good at giving cuddles that make me melt. We are all so thankful for her and we love her so much!
