13 months

Dear Egan,
A few days ago, you turned 13 months old. You are into everything... EVERYTHING! Just today you climbed up on top of your music table and stood on your scooter. You always keep me on my toes!
You have been walking for over a month now, but you are still primarily a crawler, and boy do you crawl fast. I don't know how you do it! You have pretty much always been a "spirited" kid, and that has not changed. You now express your feelings LOUDLY for everyone to hear. Fortunately for me you really like to be out and about so you are normally pretty happy when we are shopping or out to eat. That doesn't stop you from telling everyone about it though! Throughout the day we have lots of conversations. I have no idea what you are saying, but you sure seem to! You have picked up on some sign language. Your favorite one is "milk". You also know "all done" and "more", but you hate to do more. You'd rather scream and point.
We have been having a lot of fun in the back yard. You have a new swimming pool, sandbox (that we will be filling with sand soon), a slide and lots of other fun stuff. This is going to be a great summer!
I've been trying to get you to say mama, but you haven't really done that yet, but I think you are trying to! I noticed you saying "ie-ya" repeatedly after I say mama. It's a stretch, but I guess I'll take it!
You love chasing the dogs around the house and throw toys for them. You like it when they lick you or give you attention of any kind. Ah, the dogs. They always happily clean up after you eat which I love!
We have so much fun playing and learning new things each day.
We love you, Egan!
