What you should know about Adelle at 1 year old:
Adelle is about 20 pounds and 29 inches.
Adelle has been making some effort at words in the past 2 weeks. The sounds we've been hearing (but I haven't for sure declared) are (in order of appearance)
"Da-ya" - Daddy (when waving hi to him),
"Ha" - hat,
"Mumumumum" - Mama (only when she is upset and wants my attention)
She's an avid dancer. She has a very serious face when she dances.
She likes to wave bye, hi, and night-night.
We have a large yellow tonka truck, and Adelle likes to climb in the back of it. She then waits for someone to push her around the room.
Adelle enjoys reading - she find books, and brings them to us to read to her. She also finds books, opens the up and starts reading aloud to her self. Loudly. Very Loudly.
Finally, she has all four front teeth. Now she can really tear things up. I think she'll discover that eating solids can be pretty fun. If I'd let her make a mess with it. :)
