The day after I posted that Lennon couldn't walk yet, she started to walk! She falls down quite a bit because when she tries to go too fast, but other than that she a really great walker.

We've been working on the sign for "more" for months now and she finally started using it after I gave her a little bite of cake. Now whenever she wants something she signs for more.

And, for your viewing pleasure, here is a video of LB dancing to one of her signing DVDs:

I just found this picture at my parent's house

It's freaking me out how much Lennon looks like me when I was little.

Can somebody please tell me what happened to the past year?

Everyone said it would go by too fast, but I really had no idea until now. Our baby is one year old already! In just matter of months she transformed from a tiny, helpless infant into a curious and determined little girl with a huge personality.

I'm not sure if throwing a temper tantrum is considered a milestone, but she has mastered it. Walking is coming too soon. She can take six or seven steps in a row before she falls down or has to grab on to something. Climbing is a scary new obsession, whether it's on moving boxes, furniture, or my legs, she wants up.

We're still working on sign language, but she has only done three signs so far. She can ask for "milk" and now her hands never stop flapping open and closed, open and closed.

Lennon and I are starting to settle into a daily routine in the new house with regular nap times and everything! She is still sleeping in our bed, which we are all happy with, but the exciting news is that she doesn't need to be ON someone during her nap! Hurray!!!
