Showing her age

Clover will be one in less than 2 weeks.  She has really taken off with words and walking by holding on to things. She is playing with toys differently than she did before and she has such a great sense of humor. 

I have lots of words to add to her list. Today she said, "Sean", "Angel", "Ace".  She is still working on MeMe, PaPa, Grandma, and Grandpa.  However, she knows who they all are and is trying very hard to say the names correctly.  She is also saying "thank you", "water", and "Rachel".  Last weekend, when Johnny got her, she saw him before I did and she exclaimed, "Daddy's here!".  She is signing more too.  Today she learned the sign for "cup".  She signed it and then did the sign for "drink" which is cup, but then you act out drinking from it.  Then she said, "ah" if she just drank and was satisfied.  She amazes me every day and we are so proud of her. 

She has been not feeling as great as normal because she has started cutting her teeth.  She has one coming in on the bottom and it is very sharp.  She has been running a little temperature here and there, but is still happy.  She shows more and more affection and loves to cuddle when she is tired. 

I start a new job on Monday and have been feeling really awful about not being able to be with Clover all of the time.  I bet it will be harder for me than it is for her.  I'm looking in to daycares now, but grandma will take good care of Clover until we find one for her.  I know she needs the interaction with other kids for her development.  The great thing is that I will be able to be off work in the early afternoon most days and will get to spend some good time with her before she heads to bed.

We have been extremely busy this month and its going to get busier.  Clover's big day is going to be great.  My next post will be up in the next couple of days with details for Clover's party.  I wanted to wait until everyone that reads her blog has gotten the invitation in the mail before posting about it.  It will be a very fun and special time and we are so happy to share it with family and friends.
