My Tallie!

I know I already posted about Tallie's first birthday, but I wanted to jot down a few things about Tallie at 1!

Tallie is a firecracker!  My little Tootles is full of so much energy.  She loves to be on the go, and is happiest when she is surrounded by people. 

Because she is so social, she always starts crying the second I take her into her bedroom for nap time!  She would so much rather stay up and play. 

She loves her big brother Lance so much.  It is so fun to see my kids interact.  Lance has always been so sweet and loving to Tallie.  I have never had to worry about him hurting her.  And she just adores him.  Anything he says or does brings a huge smile to her face!

She has six teeth, and this is probably bad to say, but her top two teeth are spaced apart, and I love it, I think it looks so cute with a gap in the middle!

Tallie is constantly smiling or laughing.   She is such a happy baby.  Even when she is sick, she still has a smile on her face.

She loves to move, be on the go, and explore things.  She doesn't walk yet, but she pulls herself up to everything and walks around furniture.

She loves to sit in her bed and have 'book time' - especially if Lance comes in and reads books with her.  

She has a lot more hair than Lance did at 1.  She is even starting to get little curls at the back of her head.  I don't know if they will stay, but they are pretty dang cute.

She is a great eater, but is a very independent eater.  She will eat most things, but will not even try a bite if I try to feed it to her.  She has to do everything herself.  So, she ends up being a very messy eater as well.

She loves to sing and dance.  Any time she hears music she will start moving her head to the beat, or if she is crawling or standing up she will start bouncing up and down.  She also 'sings' along to any song we are singing or is on the radio.  It is so cute!

She likes to clap, throw her arms up in the air for 'hurray,' wave hi, bye and goodnight, and give hi fives.  Her favorite word to say is "uh-oh!"  She also says ma-ma, da-da, pa-pa and clap.

The last year was definitely an adjustment, but Tallie has been such a joy to have in our family.  I love her spunky personality and happy demeanor.  We love you Tallie Jo!  Thank you for coming to our family.  We cannot even believe how much you have grown this last year, and we are so excited to see you continue to grow and learn new things.  We love you so much our happy little girl!!!

Her bows and little outfits are so stinking adorable! How do you get her to keep beanies on? She looks like a ball of energy...just like her mommy!
