Anyhow, below are a few pictures out of many over the past months. Charis is growing so quickly! I can't believe how mature she is getting, and I can't believe that she is almost a year old.
She loves to talk and points at everything saying, "Whaz dat?" Her other words said at random according to her pleasure are: tree, dog, daddy, mama, tick (for clock), teddy, etc. She also loves to give hugs and kisses (which are accompanied by the sounds mmmmm-mwa!) She is crawling up stairs for quite some time now but has not quite accomplished the down part sometimes going backwards, rolling head over heels, or length-wise. She has been pulling up on everything. Strangely enough, she doesn't seem to like pulling up on tables unless it is an object which is waist height, but rather will "pull up" on flat surfaces or chair legs. Charis absolutely adores playing with everything but her toys, minus any toy toss-able. She will sit for quite a while throwing her tennis ball, rubber ball, or pretty much anything back and forth. We tease that she must be preparing to be a tennis player because she has the grunting down pat which accompanies most throws. She also loves sticks. I will post some pictures later which particularly display this adoration on her part.
So, until next time... Enjoy!
Helping mummy with laundry as well as displaying the dangers of sitting for a professional photographer on her left cheek. All pictures thereafter where taken from the right side only.
Having fun looking "outside." Whazdat? ... a doggy? Nope, just mommy! :)
Watching Baby Einstein and playing in a box. The best!!!
She absolutely loves the color blue and her ball!
