twelve *12* twelve




Here it is, month 12. Can you believe it? I normally end the month pictures at 12, so I'm a little sad that this was my last little photo shoot.
Davy has had a really good month. You ready to hear about it?
Davy weighs in at 18 and half pounds and is 30 inches long. That is 10% in weight and 70% in height.
So looks it looks like solids are paying off. We are cautiously moving forward and making so much progress. But I have learned some things the hard way. Like, that freeze dried mangoes do NOT dissolve as fast as Cheetos. Not a pleasant experience.
On a good note, thanks to the time change, Davy wakes up now at 6 am rather then 5am!! It's weird what one hour later can do for you. Hey BTW this morning she slept in til 7!!!!!
Remember when Davy loved looking at peoples faces and she would lovingly caress them? Well, she still loves faces, except now the caresses have turned into slapping. Basically she is playing pat a cake with your face. Every once in a while I'll get some tenderness, but not very often.
Davy is still not crawling on all fours. But she can drag her little body all across the floor. She can pretty much get anywhere now. This has made a huge difference in Davy's(our) life. She is way more content. She can entertain herself for longer periods of time and is getting in lots of trouble.
Davy's favorite toys are the remotes, phones and magazines. Everything gets a taste test now a days. So I'm trying to keep a cleaner house in result.* Key word, trying.
SO I don't have a picture of Davy's latest trick because she only did it a couple of days ago and
it's only been done a handful of times, BUT I walked into our room to get her from her crib and she had pulled herself to a standing position!! The best part was the look on her face. She knew what she did and was very proud.
She is also starting to figure out how she can sit up all by herself...she has built in kick stands, her arms. So she just bears weight on her guns and plays for a bit.


This picture makes me laugh so hard. I love the gas face, Davy is making.


It is done. 12 months of documenting this little girls life.
I always have loved doing this but it has been extra special documenting Davy's 12 months. I love going back and looking at her progress.
Maybe I will keep doing it. Maybe just every couple of months though.

Happy Birthday Davy!

YAY!! I still try to get out and get nice pictures at least every 6 months.. some people think I am nuts, but you know how much you will miss her being little one day - and you will always have these photos to jog your memory. Keep going, but now the pressure is off - if you are having a rough month you can skip it without the guilt.

Her gas face is the BEST! What a cute little stinker!

I'm extra emotional today but your post made me cry. I don't know you or your family but since finding your blog I have been cheering Davy from afar. I love to see her accomplishments. Happy Birthday Davy.

It's amazing to see her progress. It was hard to imagine what her first 12 months would bring. Congratulations to Davy and to your beautiful family.

Will you just stop it right now with that hair in the first picture?!? C'mon, how awesome is that? Love that Davy. I want her to be bffs with Lola Bird. They're only days apart in age.
