One Year Old – Carlyn

It is so hard to believe that my little baby is now one year old.  It is amazing how quickly time flies.  Carlyn is such a great, happy baby, oh I mean Toddler.  Her cake smash at her party went so well.  She demolished the cake, although she didn’t eat much of it.  I thought for sure this was going to be epic, but she just wasn’t into it on this day.  We still have a ton of great shots.

The big news for the month is that Carlyn is now walking.  She started at the middle of the month with a few steps, but now she’s a boss!  She has this walking thing down and doesn’t fall very much anymore.  She is also a climber.  She loves to climb up on our couches, the step stool, the tables, anything really.

She is very inquisitive and wanting to check everything new out!  She doesn’t mind a mess or getting her hands dirty.  She also LOVES the water.  We went to the beach a couple of times and she spent every minute she could playing in the water, exploring the sand and rocks.

She has also started bringing me books to read.  I love it!  She will sit and listen during our nightly story time while her sister reads before bed.
