Rael is 11 Months. Last year, at this time, I was making lists, preparing our home and packing our hospital bag for the arrive of our little baby Rael. And now, I am planning her 1st birthday party at the beach. Wow, it is amazing how much Rael has grown in one year. I must say I am completely and utterly in love with my little girl. I can’t imagine life without my two little gifts from God. Rael is surprising us each and every day with something new that she is doing and I am really noticing how much she is growing. She now can sign “all done” when she is finished with her meal, and shakes her head “no” when we offer her something that she isn't interested in. Her newest accomplishments are: clapping her hands, dancing to music and moving her little hips up and down to the beat, waving hello and goodbye, smiling non-stop with her 12 teeth, and pointing at everything that she sees. She is a pro at climbing stairs and is now even standing alone! We are eagerly awaiting her first steps and hoping to catch it on camera. She is such a jolly, joyful and easy going baby, and most of all, she loves playing with her big sister. Laylie and Rael have so much fun crawling on the floor together and playing tag – it’s the cutest thing to watch and brings so many giggles these sweet sisters. We can’t believe Rael is turning 1 in a few weeks and we will no longer have a tiny baby on our hands - but a toddler. We love you baby girl and can’t wait to celebrate your 1stbirthday!
