Brielle's Development [1 Year!]

This little girl is ONE!

What a great year it's been! She came into the world fairly easily (thank you, Baby!) and the transition from one to two was pretty easy for me. Brielle was an easy and sweet baby. She became more difficult from 6-9 months. I'm not sure if it was the move or if it was recognizing she had vocal chords but being unable to move (she always wanted Mommy!). Once she started crawling at 9 months, she became a happier baby.

It has been so fun to discover her personality. She likes attention, she is an instigator (Little Sister Syndrome?), she is a cautious daredevil (oxymoron?), she loves the outdoors and water, she is sensitive, and she loves people.

This past month she has learned to walk along furniture. She also stands for very short periods of times by letting go of something (the longest was about 15 seconds). She gets so proud of herself when she does so and starts giggling and bouncing which then results in falling :)

She claps her hands now and waves "bye bye".

She's been told "No" a lot more lately (pulling hair, playing with the toilet paper, playing in the toilet, playing with trash), and she usually cries immediately upon hearing the word.

Typical Schedule:
7:30am - Wake
8am - Banana, Toast, Bottle
10:30am- Nap (around 1 hour)
12pm - Lunch
2pm - Nap (usually 2 hours)
4pm - Snack
5:30pm - Supper
Sometimes still requires a night nap
7pm - Bottle
7:30pm - Bed
