Vivian: A Cliff’s Note’s version (12 Mos)

December- 12 mos
Daddy is supposed to come home this month. You can say dada but you can’t, or won't say mama yet, but I can’t wait to hear you call out for me. You do say “hi, baby!” though, because that’s what I say to you. You say “Hi, baby!” to everyone and it’s adorable. 

You got a really bad diaper rash that turned into a yeast infection that kept you up crying until 3am. We drove around with Auntie Audge and looked at Christmas lights in the hopes you’d fall asleep…. It didn’t work. You were just too uncomfortable. And we were both miserable. I was a crying mess and Audrey, I'm sure, was regretting her visit.  Finally you fell asleep with Auntie Audge at about the time I had to go to work. I’m ready for Daddy to come home. So READY.

We picked your Daddy up from the airport on the 19th. Just in time for Christmas! It was really, really good to see him.  He teared up when he saw you and how big you’d gotten. He hugged you and kissed you and took big gulpy sniffs of your neck. For you, it was like no time had passed. You grabbed his nose and let him hold you for as long as he wanted.

I don’t think he’ll let go of you for quite awhile. It’s good to have him home. 
Great Grandpa on the Farm (Nana’s daddy) and Grandma Beth came to visit from Kansas to meet you for the first time over Christmas, you had a great time playing with them and they came to dinner for your birthday and had cupcakes.
