**This is the first time in 5 years that I forgot to take one of my kids' official "monthly photo"
Bad mami blogger! Luckily I had this cute picture of you Paloma, and it was taken just a week after you turned 13 months. Please forgive me, it will not happen again!
You are officially a walker Paloma!!!
A few days after your birthday you took your first steps (Oct 5) 3 days after that (Oct 8) you were done with crawling. And just like that - we have a toddler!
Although you have said "mama" many times, it doesn't compare to the amount of times you call out for your papi. "papa, papa." You follow him around the house. You get excited when I say "Papi's home!" You know when I command Siri to "call Neto" that it is time to start yelling out his name until I put him on speaker to talk to you.
You aren't saying too many words, but your communication skills are great. You point to what you want and say "DA." You sign for "more" and this is so helpful. With that sign you also started saying "ch-ch" which leads me to believe weaning you from breast milk isn't going to be as easy as it was with your brothers. Oh well, I still enjoy our cuddle time and Im not feeling any rush to cut you off.
Mami has been so busy with Christmas lights and carting kids and you have been the sweetest easy going baby girl - for the most part. You did have a couple bad weeks after finding out [at your one year check-up] that you had an ear infection. You woke up nightly crying, and I ran in your room to console you! You would go right back to sleep, but we both had interrupted . We may have created a little habit... that of course had to be broken once you got better. We are back on track now.
This month has been about CAR RIDES AND CAR SLEEP for you mamacita, but I promise we are going to have a lot more fun in the future....one December 15 arrives, we will be all about playing again! Te prometo!
