One year ago today

Well, it has been 1 year as of today and what a year. LiLi has gone from a 10 month old infant who could just sit with support to a 22 month old toddler who decided today to make one of those developmental leaps that toddlers seem to make in their sleep. She seems to be more confident in her skills and is trying new things. Today she practiced walking up the stairs only holding one of my hands and then by the end of the day decided to walk up our front steps all by herself. She also spoke a definitive sentence today. We had gone to Starbucks and she was practicing climbing into the big girl chair by herself and wanted no help. After doing this with a little bit of a struggle a couple of times, she did it quite easily and then turned to me and said “I do, Mommy!” She was quite proud of herself.
As a tribute to the last year, I am going to do a retrospective of pictures. Some may be repeats and some are ones we never got around to posting because we were not posting very often.

    Catherine,

    Spectacular. Great idea and great job! I think this, Jan. 29, should be a special day from now on. Give Lili a big kiss and a head-butt for me.

    Love you, Dad
