13 Months

At 13 months Daphne has decided to use walking as her primary method of transportation. She rarely crawls anymore - only if she needs to get somewhere EXTRA fast. She is still a little wobbly, but overall she is doing great! As long as Daphne is fed and rested she couldn't be happier. She definitely wants her food instantly and NEEDS her sleep - that's what makes her the perfect combination of Kevin and me.

Daphne enjoys exploring every nook and cranny of this house. She often gets stuck in things, between things, behind things, under things, etc. She reaches onto tables for anything hanging over the edge and the reaches under things - who know what she might find.

Daphne definitely loves to be held. She is often glued to my hip at the end of each day. If someone else is around to give her extra attention - you can bet she will expect to be held.

Daphne babbles constantly but still only says dada and mama clearly. If we ask her "Where is Norah/Lucy?" she will turn towards them - sometimes she walks to them. She understands a lot of what we say - but just doesn't really have any words yet. Although with 2 big sisters to talk for her - she may never need to talk!

Daphne loves her food. She will eat just about any fruit. Her other favorites include cheese, yogurt, toast with butter, turkey, chicken, carrots, corn and pasta.

We are enjoying her so much and it is so fun to watch Daphne grow. We are so thankful for this little blessing that God gave us!!
Check out Daphne's long hair! From behind she doesn't look like a 1 year old.
