What a wonderful year it has been with Lauralyn.  She amazes us everyday with her little personality.  Her birthday was November 4th, so I'm just 10 days behind on this post :)

She's walking, climbing, driving Lawson's cozy coupe, and into everything!  One of her favorite things to do is try to put lids on things. It will keep her entertained for a while!  She is one tough little girl.  She takes spills all the time, mostly when she is climbing or playing with Lawson, and usually just gets up like nothing happened.

Her nightly routine changed this month.  She started hating the bottle at night and would cry the instant I took her to her room to give her a bottle and put her to bed.  So we tried milk in a sippy cup and let her play and drink it until it was time for bed.  She loved it and usually doesn't cry when we put her to bed.  Either her daddy or I take her to her room, sit in her chair and sing her a couple of songs while she drinks her milk, and then put her in her crib at a little after 8:00.  It has been wonderful!

She loves her milk in the morning and at night and is still eating everything she can get her hands on.

She is constantly trying to talk, but says mama, dada, bubba or byebye (not sure which) very well.  She is also signing "more"  which makes meals a little easier than before.  Before she would just scream when she wanted something.  Lawson likes to try to get her to sign "more"  and it is absolutely precious.  She and Lawson are playing better and better together as she gets older.

It hurts my heart when I think about my baby growing up, but it truly is so much fun to see her grow and change and become a little toddler.
