It's been another rollercoaster year with so many ups and downs. For one thing, it's gotten easier for me and daddy. We're catching on to this patenting thing! You seem to also be settling into the world more. Words! All your new words help us all so much with navigating this journey. You sleep better at night (really thought I'd be saying "all night" at this point, but we'll take what we can get), you potty trained yourself, you still love to nurse, you give the biggest and best kisses, you love to hang out with your little friends and I even catch you pretend sharing with them when no one is around. I adore your sweet, sensitive soul. I have to remind myself that your tantrums and resistance to change are just signs of what an amazingly sensitive, intelligent, and loving person you are going to be and I need to slow down, give you time to adjust, and most importantly, cherish you.
I love you, kiddo!
