Adventures of Rebekah: 12 months = 1 year (already!!)

Dear Rebekah,
What a year it has been! It was so fun for me to go back and read about each month and to see you grow in each of your monthly pictures!

Here are links to each of the past monthly posts about Rebekah for anyone who may have missed one

This last month went by so quickly (and I'm over a week late posting this! yikes!)

This month you got to go on your first picnic! We met your Memaw for a picnic lunch one day and you loved being able to move around  and look at everything while eating some lunch.

You got to meet a new friend (and mommy got to visit with an old friend!)

You are starting to put things back into containers instead of just taking things out ...though you still prefer to take things out.

You can be such a ham sometimes and everyone just melts at your cute smile. 
You are increasingly mobile and are always discovering new things to climb on
And climb in to. 

You even took your first steps before your  first birthday - one night when mommy came home you took 3 steps to get from daddy to mommy - we are so proud of you! 

You love to eat pretty much anything - green beans and blueberries are your current favorites. Oh, and chicken. You LOVE chicken.

You are still taking 2 naps a day and sleep about 11 hours at night. Most nights you wake up one or two times to nurse, but every once and a while you surprise mommy by sleeping all the way through the night. I hope that becomes more of a regular occurrence soon...please? Speaking of nursing, we still are. My goal was to make it to 1 year and then play it by ear. You nurse before you go to sleep (naps and night time) and when you wake up in the morning - so about 4 times a day and once or twice at night. I know our special times in the rocking chair are going to come to an end sometime, but I'm perfectly happy to keep nursing until you are ready to stop.

You are such a sweet girl and I can hardly believe it has been one whole year since I got to hold you in my arms for the first time.

Happy Birthday Little Girl!
