Lux is sick today, but she still managed to make it through our monthly photo shoot without looking terribly exhausted. She was amazed by the sticker and kept trying to take it off...however, when it stuck to her hand, she looked at me like the sticker was attacking her and wouldn't let go. She always finds something better to do than smile and sit on the couch.
This month has been FULL of exciting things for Lux. She seemed to rapidly be changing right before our eyes and it was somewhat difficult to keep track of the things that she was doing.
She took her first steps a day after she turned 10 months, took a few more steps the day after in Sioux City, and then decided crawling was enough for her. After a couple weeks, in all the excitement of family visiting and being in her household, she decided to full on walk full lengths of the house. She still crawls when she intends to get places as fast as a speeding bullet, but she's figured out walking isn't half bad.
She's kinda lost her appetite for food this month. I'm not sure if she's bored sitting in her highchair, or if she's just not hungry, but she just hasn't been too interested in eating. She decides she's done when she tosses the food to alexio, who is usually waiting for her to throw food his way. We're working on it. However, things she will always eat are veggie straws, avocados, and we found out she likes mangos, so thats fun.
She's figured out fun sounds like the letter L, so she likes to say, "lolo," (grandpa in tagalog) all the time. In fact, she'll stand at the fridge and point up at his pic and say his name over and over again, "Lololololololo." She also has taken to pointing at things and "telling" us about it, or if she wants something, she'll point and look at us with a frantic look in her eyes. She loves to point.
Her favorite things right now have to be her cozy coupe, her Little People Ride-on, her puppy, her bitty baby, and her sock monkey. Oh and books. her Animal books.
It's been a fun month of change and development for Lux.
One more month and then she'll be ONE! I can't even begin to believe it.
So here's the scoop.
In honor of Lux's 1st birthday, I'm giving away some pretty fun things. Some of our favorites!
It'll start on June 10th and will go until June 21st-on Lux's birthday!
You'll start hearing about it more as we get closer to June 10 (which also happens to be my birthday!)
To our Lux,
You're going to be a toddler the next time I write a monthly update on you. I get so excited with each milestone you reach, whether it's pointing or putting a cell phone to your ear and "talk." I'm amazed with what such a little person has the ability to do - warm my heart, tug on it, and make it burst with pride. You are the bright spot in our day, and the one that made mommy and daddy fall deeper in love than. You're such a gift to us, and we are absolutely enthralled by you. We pray daily for your salvation to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior at an early age, and that you will want to live your life for HIM. We pray for your joy to continue to encourage others and that you will be used in many peoples lives.
We love you, our sweet little light in our lives.
Love, Mommy and Daddy.
