It has been a crazy week to say this least, but it’s been a good week. It seems like in a matter of a week Kaylen has grown leaps and bounds. Last Sunday, she took the first step that I saw. Today, she can take a good three or four steps in a row. If she is really on a roll, she can get up to ten steps. She is jabbing a lot more these days. She started saying UH OH, but I don’t think she knows what it means, she just knows how to make the sound. So now, she is can say, ma ma, da da, up, and now uh oh. I have heard her say hi and bye, but she is still working on those. She is waving more often now too. I was able to get her to wave all weekend, but she waves to herself. I just am feeling so very blessed to have her for my daughter. She is a wonderful little girl and I just love her to pieces. She warms my heart and she reminds me of what is important in this world. It was the greatest joy today to pick her up from the childcare center at Shadow Hills and to see her scream in delight when she saw Jeff and I were there to pick her up. It’s the little things that let you know that you must be doing an okay job at raising her. She at least seems to know how much we love and adore her. I long for the end of the work day so that I can go pick up and play with her. There is also a slight sadness in my heart knowing that in a few month she will really be past her baby days and will be more like a toddler. I’m looking forward to it, but I have enjoyed her so much as a baby I know I will miss it. I just can’t believe she is taking some steps and just progressing like she is. It just seems like yesterday, I was anxiously awaiting her arrival. It REALLY just go by WAY too fast! Today, she is eleven months, 1 week, and 4 days old. I guess I should also mentioned that she managed to bruise her right cheek yesterday. Today, she managed to bruise her forehead and her right eye. She looks like she was in a boxing match! Oh, the joys of learning to stand and walk!
