one year with coco!

I feel like it was just yesterday that I gave birth to this little munchkin. One year ago, I was scared to add another baby to our already very comfortable routine. I didn't think I could love another baby as much as I loved my first. And then Coco came around with her calm, yet persistent, personality and I fell in love all over again. She's been standing up a storm (but not quite walking yet), babbling "thank you" and "agua" and mostly just winning us over with her two-tooth grin. Here's a look back at how my littlest has grown over the past year...

And um, doing laying down monthly photos is pretty much impossible from 9 months on when they get to be super wiggly and won't stay still (hence these photos get a little wilder near the end). If I had to do it all over again, I would take monthly photos very differently (more on that in another post)!

These two. It's not always smooth-sailing with sisters, but this is just the beginning of getting to see how they'll interact with each other in the future. No one makes Coco laugh more than Ruby can. And while Ruby gets upset with Coco not always being able to do the same things that she can, Ruby said she's sorry when earlier this year she asked if Coco could live somewhere else. She would like Coco to stay with us now.
