Our tiny girl is one year old! April brought spring flowers, sunshine, second vaccination shots, playdates, and friends. An all-around improvement from March!! In April she got excited about crawling around outside, and got SO excited about trains, waterfalls, trees, buildings (she won’t stop pointing and telling us all about them). She improved at pulling […]
