These little ones have so much learning to do their first few years of life, it continually amazes me how fast they’re able to catch on to things. So while my almost 15-month-old still isn’t walking (don’t worry, I’m not worried), he is working extremely hard at practicing his walk. This past weekend we took him out to the park so he could have some wide open space to put his new push walker to use. Within minutes he had caught on and got the idea of this thing called walking. Now, is he walking on his own yet?

Every year I say I’m going to do an advent calendar, and every year I come up empty handed. I guess at my core, I’m just really not all that crafty. Sort of crafty, but also super busy and tired, and usually busy and tired trump my desire to craft and create. That said, this is definitely going to be the year … the year of the advent calendar for our family, because I’ve been feeling an extra dose of holiday cheer, and because I know my daughter would think it was totally magical, which will make it all worth the effort. Also, for those of you who just don’t feel like you have the time, energy, or motivation to take on another DIY? Don’t fret — these are all super simple, and I’ve chosen my DIY advent of choice from this bunch — so you know it’s easy!

Day by day, slowly but surely this girl is turning into her own little person. A little person who loves bread and jam, any type of sauce, and who will gobble up raisins and pickles like they are going out of style. A little person who loves to wear rain boots…all day, every day. A little person who loves to sing “It’s a Small World” and dances every time she hears a beat. A little person who loves the color pink.

It all started early Thursday morning. Just before my husband left for work, Judah rolled over on the bed and clear as day said, “Baba!” I did a double take and Judah said it again, bringing his hands to his mouth like he was trying to drink from a bottle. At first we just thought it was a fluke, but since then, he’s been saying “baba!” before every meal. It seems like it’s not so much a direct representation of “bottle” but more “I’m hungry – let’s eat!”
We know it’s super early for baby’s first word; Judah is just over six months old. But the more we hear him say “baba” as he associates it with meals, the more we’re starting to think that it might be his first word after all.
