It happened. My baby turned one. I’ll save party details for another day and fill you in on the last week.

Lyra’s “words” are multiplying rapidly. She’s going a pretty good job of repeating what we say as well. Obviously it’s not perfect, but she concentrates hard in matching mouth shape and sound. It’s very fun.

She is also super into shaking her head. Not “no,” but I’m-so-happy-I-can’t-handle-it. She gets giggling and then shaking her head and then she just collapses into you (often managing to head butt me in the nose).

She can walk holding just one hand now. And once or twice she has stood up by herself while partially propped up on something. It shouldn’t be long now.
