When Brielle turned one, she wasn't walking and was only standing for short periods of time. In the last three months, she's learned to stand easily and she walks all the time now. She has been walking for over a month now, but she's been walking consistently (without crawling) for a little less than a month. She's even able to do a speed walk now, although she still falls over things a lot.
As for words, it is so fun to watch her learn new ones! Sophie knew quite a few more words at this age, and so it can be frustrating for both Brielle and for me to figure out what she wants. Her current words are: mama (and mom), dada, more, ball, bubbles, and hi.
Likes: playing outside, blanky, paci, food, water, bubbles, slides, singing, being held, swinging
Dislikes: diaper changes, having her hands held, animals (she actually has a love-hate relationship with them)
