14 Months

Yesterday I turned 14 months old. A lot has happened in the past month. I'm happy to report that I now have 8 teeth (ok, 7 and a half, that last one is just poking through). I'm learning more and more about chewing. It's getting easier the more teeth I get. I'm working on some molars in the back, but they are taking their sweet time.

My signing has been getting much better. I use the signs I know more and more and say "Mama" to get Mommy's attention. Sometimes I say it very loudly. I'm very polite. "Please" is one of my favorite signs, except sometimes, even though I say please, I don't get what I want. What is up with that?

I had a great holiday! Mom and Dad both had the week of Christmas off, so we got to spend lots of time together as a family. We didn't put up a tree, but Daddy put up some lights and hung up all the holiday cards we received. I got a lot of great gifts and I'm very grateful for all of them.

And now for the big news...I'm walking! Yesterday I started walking big time. I'm still working on my balance issues and I have to take it slow, but I prefer to walk instead of crawl. Now that I'm walking, Mommy says I can't necessarily go wherever I want to, though. Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

I hope you all had a great holiday season. There are lots of present-opening pictures below.
