Little Dorrit turned one

On September 17th, Little Dorrit turned one. As the date of her birthday approached and then passed, I couldn't help remembering so many of the things we experienced after she was I felt like our lives were in constant turmoil and we had absolutely no control over what was happening. It really is a miracle that Little Dorrit has made it this far and that she is doing so well! We are so grateful

I wanted to do something big and wonderful to celebrate the first year of Little Dorrit's life but my work schedule was really busy that week so our celebration ended up being just our little family. It was simple and sweet. We went out to eat as a family, bought some cupcakes and watched Little Dorrit "open" presents.

I love seeing Little Dorrit grow and learn. She's making fun little baby sounds and loves to mimic other people. Her favorite sounds are, of course, a run of mamamamma's and dadadadada's. She'll also whisper "Hi" to us and she's recently started using what I can best describe as a "Batman" voice. Her face lights up whenever she sees me or Mr. Rochester and she absolutely adores Trotwood. The other day, Trotwood had a day off of school and she just leaned on the beanbag we use to keep her out of the kitchen and watched him for awhile.

Little Dorrit loves to crawl and always wants to be moving, now that she can move. She has a slight little hitch to her crawl sometimes that her physcial therapist thinks is due to some remaining torticollis. Overall, we feel like she's really doing fabulously and hope to be able to celebrate many more birthdays to come.
