Dear Zahara: 13 months

Dear Zahara,

There is no denying now that you are no longer a little baby; you are a wonderful little toddler. Of course, you'll always be my baby, but you are starting to look and act more like a big girl each day. 

You are finally sleeping through the night! I cannot believe it took a full year to get to this point, but I'm so thrilled we're there now. You are waking up earlier than I would like (5:30-6:00 am), but at least I don't have to get up in the middle of the night to feed you any more. 

You've started blowing kisses now. You take your chubby little hands, put them to your mouth, smile big, and blow. You're getting better/more enthusiastic about real kisses too. You're still doing "zombie kisses" with your mouth all the way open, but daddy and I melt when you kiss us and then clap proudly at yourself.

This month marked your first time in daycare. You did pretty well! I think it was much harder for mummy than it was for you. You were the youngest in the pre-toddler room, and the only one not fully walking yet. The daycare requires everyone to wear shoes, so you got your very first pair (for £20!).

Speaking of walking, you took your first steps this month! At the Tour de France party
at Tracy's house, you just turned to our friend Deanna and walked. Daddy and I shouted, we were so excited! You've taken a few steps since then, but are still crawling and "cruising" to get around.

We had a pretty rotten few days this month while you were going through a big wonder week. Thankfully, you came out the other side even sweeter than before. You're now much happier cuddling or sitting quietly with mummy and daddy. It's lovely.

Happy 13 months! Love you lots!
