Carissa is a Big Girl Now

Carissa turned one year old August 15th. Her doctor stats say she is a little over 18 lbs, tall and lean, with kind of a big head.

She is a chameleon, quickly changing from this:

to this:

That’s because she insists on feeding herself. It keeps her busy and quiet for several minutes at a time, which I appreciate. But wow, the paper towels we go through.

She likes draping things over her head.

Also a fan of balloons.

And today, a new skill! Two new skills, actually.

I saw her climb up the slide all by herself. And, then, ta-dah! Go down, all by herself. I didn’t even see it coming. I happened to have a camera in my hand to catch her coming down for the first time. (In my defense, I was on the phone with my folks at the time, which accounts for my chattering and laughing to seemingly no one.)

Check out her look of wonder as she goes down. She loves it.
