- are obsessed with puffs!
-are no longer that into pureed baby just want finger food so you can feed yourself (which reminds are SO independent!)
-love to take baths. In fact, if I turn my head for 1 minute and you are out of sight I can always find you in the bathroom standing by the bathtub yelling in excitement.
-are always talking. Your favorite phrases to date are bababababba...mamamamamma......dadaadaddadada.
-are in 12 month pants (although they are loose on your waist but your legs are so long that the 9 month pants look like capris) and 6 and 9 month onesies.

-are an adrenaline love to climb things- like the dishwasher and stairs...and love swings, the higher the better.
