I can't believe that I have to start planning a 1st Birthday soon, tear! This past month Brooke has done a LOT. She has mastered crawling, she is climbing stairs, she can pull herself up to a standing position (and stand alone for a few seconds) and she can "walk" by using the chair in the kitchen and pushing it. She got another tooth (5 in total), and is saying "mama" and "dada" and waves hi and bye. She got to experience her first Christmas (she gladly let big brother open all of her presents!). She did get another ear infection and so we have an appointment with the doctor in a few days to decide if she needs to get tubes, poor girl has been on antibiotics forever. She wants to be in the action all the time and has figured out that if she wants something she just crawls to one of us and starts to whine. Haha. We also moved her from her baby carseat to a bigger carseat to make it more comfortable.
