Dearest Davilyn ~

Fourteen months… I cannot believe that this time last year you were still just a wee babe, eating every three hours. We have certainly come along way in such a short time.
You are my happy but reserved child. You aren’t quick to leap into anything. Including walking. You still aren’t walking but that’s okay… I can still catch you. Daddy thinks you will start walking soon. I don’t really know when to expect this big event to occur, but I do know it will happen when you are ready and not a second before.
You aren’t as quick to love rides like your older sister. You much prefer the easy going rides. The ones without much in the way of bumps. Just like your Mama.
You are still going through a very clingy stage with me and I must admit that I find it very exhausting. It’s difficult on me to listen to you whine at my heels when I am trying to make dinner. What I have been enjoying is just how snuggly you are with me lately. I love getting a hug and a kiss from you. You love to have a bed time snuggle now too, which is not something you really wanted or needed before this. It’s been nice. I love kissing your soft head as you drift off to sleep.
You are still a fabulous sleeper… but only in your own crib. Anywhere else, fahgedaboutit! But when we are at home you sleep at least 12 hours through the night. I never let myself believe that I would have a child that slept like you do.
You have picked up the gift of gab. Davilyn speak…. and I have no idea what you are saying, but I pretend that I do. I just like to hear you talking. You do have a few words like Mama, Dada, Piper, Hi. You point to pictures of Piper and say her name. I look forward to the day that the two of you are able to communicate. I can just imagine the things that you will say to each other.
You are starting to enjoy books… you love holding them and looking at the pictures in them. When I am reading to you both, you need to have one in your hands to look at. Then every so often you will look over at the book that I am reading and listen for a little bit.
I don’t know if I can ever tell you enough how very blessed I feel to have you in my life. How did I get so lucky?
Mama loves you Boo,
Love Mommy.
