Sweet Millie Girl, it's been almost 2 months since you turned one! I can't believe how quickly the year went by and don't know how the last few weeks have gotten away from me. I can't put into words what a perfect addition to our family you are. You are a loving little girl saying "Dub" and putting your forehead on almost anyone (or anything) that will get close to you. You're friendly and will gladly leap into the arms of anyone willing to take you. You're quite the comedian and keep your mamma, daddy, and little brother laughing (and crack yourself up quite often, too). You're quite content to explore and play in your room or the playroom by yourself for an hour or more at a time. You love to sit in a lap and if one becomes available, you bee-line for it (and if there's a book involved, all the better!). You're going to bed at about 7:00 and wake up around 6:30, but stay in your bed with a cup of juice until around 8:00. You go down for a nap around 2:00 and sleep for 2 or 3 hours. You're starting to pretend a little- you'll get a cup from your tea-set and pretend to sip then offer some to anyone with you. You love playing with your babies, their stroller, books (especially lift the flap, touchy feely, and Karen Katz ones), and cars. You must have your puppy or lion lovey to go to sleep. You're favorite games are pat-a-cake and peek-a-boo. You'll clap your hands, rock a little, and say "pa-tu, pa-tu" to get it started and I've also seen you crawl over to a friend and pull her dress over her head and say "weeeah" (which sounds a lot like the way I say "wheeeere's Miller?" when I cover you up!). You eat very well and like most everything except fruit. You're a HUGE Daddy's girl and can't stand to see him leave in the mornings.
