Family is so magical for children — they are so full of love and are ready to give kisses, hugs, cuddles at any time (well, unless they are in their ‘special’ mood.)
I am lucky to have my family leave close by, and it’s even more beautiful to see my siblings in their roles as tío (uncle) and tía (aunt). They are both younger than me, and to be honest, it took a little bit of time for them to grow into their roles. I personally have not yet had the privilege to be a tía so I don’t know what it’s like to care and love my siblings children (yet!) So I am overcome with emotion when I see just how much they love my children.
Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and giving me the Minnie Mouse Musical Touch n Crawl for free.
I mentioned Little L turned one and how she is a master crawler — she won’t take the plunge and let go of the sofa just yet and walk on her own, but she can get away in seconds on all fours.
Now she has a little friend — Minnie Mouse crawls right with her! The Touch n Crawl has Minnie singing some tunes and moving forward right along side her Little L.
It happened! Finally my sweet Little L, my precious girl is ONE. She has changed and developed so much and each day brings new surprises and milestones.
She pulled herself up at 7 months and cruising just after. Because she has an older brother she is constantly trying to keep up with I thought for sure she’d be up and walking long before 12 months. After all, she can stand perfectly fine on her own, she has great balance and can sit herself down without falling down — it’s a very controlled move. However, she will not take a step. When it comes to getting from point A to point B, she slowly gets on the ground and crawls over.
It’s official — Little L has *just* enough hair to gather a bit from the front and use a hair clip! This is super exciting as a mama, I mean, she looks extra adorable and more like a girl. She’s been called “little guy”, “little buddy” by passerby’s despite having on polka dot purple leggings!
I’m still on a first birthday high — I can’t believe she is one! My husband and I keep saying how different she is at this age from our son. She is vibrant, loud and super active.
Every day, I shower her with kisses from her head to her feet. Every part of her is absolutely delicious, especially after a nap; she is just so warm and cuddly.
