Today is the day Miss. A turns the big 1.5, yes 18months have passed so quickly before our eyes. I was looking back at photos from a year ago and this day last year we were getting ready to feed her solids for the first time. for some reason I was quite excited about this.
Ambitious to make all of her food knowing(thinking) she would love it. The first thing I made for her was some rice cereal and I still remember her distaste for it.
I could not understand her reaction until I tried it for myself and sure enough it tasted like paste. I guess when you go for six months of getting sweet milk the change is quite drastic.
Jumping forward a year and she is now quite the eater but has an opinion. She loves to eat Tofu uncooked but is quite picky about her meat choices. She will eat cured meats and Brie but will not eat turkey slices with cheddar. When we are shopping she will beg for the olives and will not discriminate she loves them all. She loves corn on the cob and would eat it for days but will not touch broccoli. It is amazing to see how her tastes have changed with time and I am sure this is only the beginning.
It is wonderful to see how much she has grown and changed in the year. Not only does she now sit-up on her own but she is running, walking backwards (quite strange to me), picking up new words by the day, potty training and more. She is ambitious and determined to figure things out. Her most recent obsession is keys. She will sit with a set of keys and for twenty minutes try to unlock something. I am constantly amazed by what she teaches me each day. I look forward to what we will be looking back on a year from now.
We are off to the coast for a relaxing weekend with friends. I have one book and one knitting project to bring along with a pair of running shoes. My goal is to enjoy a fun filled weekend with no obligations. I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend as well.
