Oh, my Chloe Bug...
Where should I begin, my sweet 16 month old wonder?
Perhaps, I love you would be a good place to start although it doesn't even begin to describe how WONDERFUL you are to me. You are my sunshine, my giggles, my happy tears, my cuddles, my first priority, and my greatest blessing!
If you're wondering why Mom-Mom hasn't blogged in so long...well, it's because I can honestly say that I've spent every spare minute soaking you up, collecting memories, and cherishing EVERY new and precious thing that you did each day.
Mom-Mom just started student teaching to finish her Masters degree and it has been AWFULLY hard leaving you. I know that you're making new friends at preschool and that you'll be proud of me one day. I am already SO proud of you!
Here are a few things you've been up to these days-
DaDa (your favorite word!)
Bops (you LOVE the Doodlebops!)
Mo (for Aunt Mo and Mo Doodle)
Mmmmmm! and More! (especially when you see MnM's)
Thank you (you're still working on it but have definitely been trying!)
Dog (pronounced DEWG)
But...as far as walking goes...you're still not totally sold on the idea. For now, you just prefer walking around on your knees. You're really good at it, too! You will stand up and walk when we ask you to and if we clap LOTS :) But we think you're just getting a kick out of fooling us into thinking you can't do it...because you can. You just plain out don't want to yet. My strong-willed booger, you are!
You've been busy, too!
You helped us cheer on the Tigers on many occasions...
You went to the beach *and ate lots of sand*
You had your 1st Birthday party, a ladybug party for our sweet Chloe Bug,
and Mommy and Daddy's hearts were so THANKFUL for the BEST YEAR OF OUR LIVES!
Every day with you gets sweeter, and more hilarious, and more awe-filled than the day before. What I want you to know more than anything, every day of your life, is that YOU ARE AMAZING!
