Carsyn is One!

As in 1 year old!! Back up, didn't we just bring home that little pink bundle??

Carsyn P, you are such a joy!

Personality wise you are always laughing and smiling. You are seriously the happiest baby, Can I call you baby forever, please? You rarely cry and are content most of the time.

You typically rise in the morning with a smile on your face. You actually wake up early, early have some milk, then sleep til 9:30 or so. Not the best habit, but you seem to be happy, so we'll work on that later. You have oatmeal, a cereal bar, or a banana for breakfast in your high chair while watching your Disney channel favorites. If Mickey happens to be on you'll bob up and down for the hot dog dance. After you eat and drink a little milk from your sippy you'll sit there and let mom pick up some or play in your pack in pay, You're getting much better about playing by yourself.

If its a work day you are more than content to babble the whole way to work. Sometimes you'll take a little catnap. During the day you will play with random things-still not a lover of toys! You love to take a stack of magazines and throw in the floor. You also love to take your current favorite toy (rubber ducky) and hide it and find it. Your lunch consists of chicken nuggets and maybe some yogurt. You will almost always take a 2 hour afternoon nap. After that nap is over-somewhere between 3:30 and 4:30 you play some more. We usually work on your walking skills. Lately you will push your little shopping cart, but are terrified of letting go!

We have dinner around 6:30, usually grilled cheese, then daddy play time. This is probably your favorite time of day. Daddy gives you 100% of his attention and you'll chase each other crawling around the house. Next its bath and bed time. Sometimes we have a story. Your bedtime is usually between 8:00 and 9:00 but you're a go with the flow baby. If we're out and about sometimes you'll sit up til 10:00.

You are very long and lean, Carsyn P. We go to the ped Thursday and I think you'll weigh around 17 lbs. Your appetite has really increased lately! You are wearing 9 and 12 month clothing but can actually still wear some 6 months-At least that's friendly on momma's wallet! You are really strong and love to do chin ups on furniture-its too funny! You also love to drop things on the floor, say uh-oh, then pick them up and put them on a table, and drop them again. You love to pull a blanket over your face and pull it down to say boo!

Speaking of words, you are a chatty Cathy.. You say many words if you are repeating someone but words you say on your own are hi, bye, uh-oh, duck, dog, momma, and dada. You sometimes say poop when we change your diaper. You will holler Ro-Sie if you really want to get her attention. When mom tries to teach you to sign for more you'll say mo? Your favorite word in the world is No. No, no, no to everything.

You still love babies and kids. You throw up your hand and say hi to every kid you see-Even some adults. Just the other day auntie and uncle wobble babysat you all day and tried everything to coerce you into saying their names, After meeting their little neighbor Cole for 5 minutes you yelled "Bye Cole" as you strolled off. Stinker!

You love to be free and play in the floor but you also love to be held. You will sit in momma or daddy's lap and watch TV for a while. You still love to nap in dad or papaw's lap. You love to play with your pops! You usually spend an hour a day chasing each other around.

Carsyn, momma and daddy love you to the moon and back..please stay our little girl forever!
