Dear Eisley...Twelve Months.
My little bitty love...how are you already 12 months old. This year went by so fast but at times so very slow. You are changing and growing so quickly I feel like I need to enjoy you every second, because they pass by so fast.
You are starting to show some of your personality and your humor, you are a funny one. Your new "trick" is fake sneezing. It's so cute, you do you fake sneeze then look at us and laugh. You also started saying "Ahhh" after you take a sip of a drink, or when you see someone taking a sip of a drink. You love being hung upside down and swung around and being thrown on the bed. You make so many more faces and noises too, your new one is making duck-lips, and then sniffing you upper lip...I have no idea how you came up with this, but think it is hilarious and will do it all the time. You also try to make whistling sounds, sometimes you get pretty close! Laughing is a daily occurrence, and most everything is making you laugh. It is the sweetest sound, I honestly could listen to your little chuckles all day!
Your biggest belly laughs come from the kitties, anything they do is funny to you, and you are constantly trying to get them to play with you but they are not interested in the least. Sadly we had to say goodbye to one of our kitties. This was so heartbreaking for your Mama and Papa. I was looking forward to the relationship you two would have when you got a little older, he was always so playful and I just new you two would be pals. I am so sad you will never get to really know him. Even though it was sad, I just know you are going to be a cat person. Whenever you see a cat, or really any animal, you meow at them, it is so funny to see you pointing at birds or fish and meowing at them. We can ask you 'what does the kitty say?' and you will meow back at us. Its amazing to see you learn and engage with us more.
You are interacting so much more with everyone, you wave bye and hi all the time now, and even say it sometimes. You blow kisses and can give big slimy open mouth kisses when we ask you. The stage you are in right now is so fun, we can play games, be silly, or just be lazy and cuddle. As much as it is fun, it is also hard. You are into EVERYTHING, and I know when you learn to walk, which will be in no time at all (you have taken a few steps here and there) you will be into things even MORE. I have realized I really need to step up the child proofing because you are a smart girl and quickly figure out how to get into things.
I hope you will look back on this first year of your life, and know that we thought a lot about the choices we made for you, struggled to figure out life with you in it, made mistakes, had fun, made lifetime memories, experienced new things, cried together, laughed together, but most importantly we loved you fiercely.
Mama and Papa
