1 year

Today Mingli is 1 year old. He is learning more and more.  He is learning to stand by himself right now.  The other day he was standing holding onto something, and he looked at me, grinned, then let go.  He stood there for a few seconds, then grabbed back on, grinned, and then did it again.  He was clearly very happy about what he was able to do.  He has also taken a few steps, but he doesn’t really seem interested in walking yet.  We have to really work with him to get him to do it.  Mingli’s favorite toys are cars.  He loves pushing them around, and has even started trying to say vroom vroom while pushing them around like I do.  He has trouble with the vr sound, but gets the oom sound pretty well.  He says mama a lot, and has said daddy a few times, though he has trouble with the d sound.  He also loves books, especially the lift a flap books.  If you lift the flap just the tinniest bit he can open it the rest of the way, then close it again.  When he closes it you are supposed to turn the page, and he will sit waiting patiently until you do, as long as you don’t take too long.  He is eating more and more, and he has two teeth now, finally.  They are his two front bottom teeth, and they came in at the same time.  Mingli is still such a happy baby, and very cuddly.  I can’t believe he is already a year old.  He is quickly turning into a little boy, instead of a baby.  I love him so much, and I am so blessed to have him in my life.
