The world would certainly be a sadder one without you in it, Lucy Josephine:
Cardinal Dolan days and your hair has finally stopped standing straight up in the back. I hold firmly that you are our most verbal 1-year-old so far, no matter what your father says :)
Your favorite things to say are:
- DADDY, or DA DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE:
- Dookadat!: "look at that"
- BAWL: "ball"
- NO NO NO (while wagging your finger)
- nigh nigh: good night
You have just cut a bunch of teeth which I am hoping is to blame for your erratic night wakings and if you could choose to be doing anything in world I think you would choose these three, in order of priority: 1) playing in the toilet or licking it, 2) playing in Naomi and Bernadette's room with them with the door closed or 3) nursing. We are working in weening, but you do not seem as interested in that as I am.
You have THE best and cutest relationship with your dad, much more than your sisters did at your age and while it may have arisen out of necessity (i.e. me neeeeeding your dad's help with you while I wrangle the older ones) it is so genuine and sweet and you love him so, so much.
We've had a great day so far complete with the customary birthday donut,
|Big thank you to Aunt Becca for the sweet outfit!!|
Your sappy mother.
