baker bree | 13 months

thirteen months old, today!! I feel like we just celebrated her birthday- like last weekend!! 
she's growing like a weed.. her baby thighs are thinning out a teensy bit, but oh thank heavens for her belly.  THAT BELLY is out of control.  
 
 on the move and constantly having some place to be or go or see.  
climbing up and down off the couch and then on the couch.. and then off again. moving herself around as she pleases.  the personality spewing from this little girls face and demeanor is absolutely hilarious and kinda frightening.  terrifying actually.  she is already sassing everyone around her until she gets what she wants when she wants it. 
I cant imagine where she picked that up from.
I mean.. exhibit A:
Baker Bree
continues to be the sweetest little girl on the planet.
..her demeanor is beyond anything I can describe in words.
..she loves loves loves her baby dolls.  
..the light up of her face when you hand her the baby is like outrageously cute.

LOVES her paci.  
..she isn't ready to get out of her crib in the morning or after nap until she has managed to fit 6+ in her tiny hands.
..points and squeaks towards things she desires or needs.
 grunts at the pantry or fridge if she wants a drink or snack, and she especially loves to tell you that she wants to go outside.

she is so patient, so sweet, so gentle.
..and then she'll slap you square in the nose.
..all while she laughs until tears are running down her face.
she only does this to me.  
..never her dad. 

Baker girl sleeps 12-14 hours a night.
..naps like a champ {one 3-hour nap in the morning and occasionally another 1-2hrs in the afternoon}.
..and become quite the chubby bunny when it comes to food.
 ..guarantee a clean plate anytime grilled chicken, macaroni, strawberries and raspberries, & waffles are served.
..particularly piggy when she eats guacamole, yogurt, or peanut butter. 
..will choose the veggies or fruit on her plate before touching the meat.
..unless its chicken or a turkey meatball.  

currently cutting her fifth and sixth tooth. 
..but you wouldn't even know it, unless its 2am and she's screaming her head off. 

she loves to be outside. 
..she would stay outside for the day's entirety if I allowed it.
she also loves loves loves to dance.  
..she shakes her little bootie at any sign or sound of music or a beat.  
I cant even explain how hilarious her dancing is.. 
..its like the deepest/lowest squat and then back up. squat and pop.  squat and pop.   
I'm telling you.  nut job. 

over this last month she has started to independently play along with her sisters and having every movement monitored by me or her daddy isn't a complete necessity.
she has become so attached to those big sister girls.  
..she comes running to sounds of one of them crying and will do anything to attend to them in their time of need.
..and {again} in the same moment steal every toy they are playing with in sight and take off running.
I think she loves to hear the big girls loose their minds in frustration. 
..when I find her to retrieve the stolen toys, she's got the biggest grin on her face.
she knows what she's doing.

she has a serious 'tude at times..
..its hilarious and cute now, but I am actually terrified for what the next year will bring.
purses, scarves, bracelets, and necklaces..
..just a few of her favorite things.

Her laugh is absolutely contagious.
..her smile is super cheese-y.
..puts perfection to shame with her ridiculous crazy curly hair.
..and her eyes are the most beautiful in the sunlight.

I.am.so.smitten. with you Baker girl.
