At fourteen months our sweet gal is....

...shaking her head yes.
At fourteen months she can...
...crawl on all fours and is faster than a cheetah, gone is the army crawl.
...stand up on anything solid.

...splash enough water out of the tub to fill a small bucket.

...dance, dance, dance anytime music is on.
...help mommy pull clothes out of the dryer and pull dead flowers (& sometimes not so dead) off the plants.

At fourteen months she has completely stolen the hearts of everyone she meets and has her family wrapped firmly around her little fingers. The continuous outpouring of joy that she has brought to our entire family is incredible. There is not a day that goes by where her daddy and I look at her and smile with tears in our eyes....we have been blessed beyond all measure!
