Last month, Ingrid turned into a little kid (sort of). She's taller, more stable on her feet and loves to talk.
With each passing month, I like Ingrid more and more. I know I'd mentioned that before and it sounds weird but, it's true. Her personality is warm, she loves kisses and books and above all things, the moon.
She's starting to join words together, as in "buh-bye Hahpah" and "read book." I know that sounds like small potatoes, but after listening to a year of cooing, signing, babbling and single words, getting a glimpse into Ingrid's thoughts through verbal communication is wonderful.
It's like listening to a song and understanding the verse, when yesterday you could only make out the refrain.
