Isabella is 12 months and doesn't walk yet. but she's getting closer. I think she finds that crawling is a much faster, and safer, method of transportation. We have so many hard floors here, so her falls hurt more. she avoids falling. She is such an active little girl, she climbs on all the furnature and up the stairs and gets into all the cupboards and drawers. We've been staying with Ricky's parents since Christmas. Their house isn't baby proofed so I'm always running after Isabella as she tries to escape outside or climb into the tub.
She began saying some words over the last few months, but now things are getting clearer. The other day we were asking her where all the people were, by name. When we asked where is Peter (her grandpa) she said, Ahi esta (there he is in Spanish). She's said this before, but this time it came out very clearly. She understands both English and Spanish, and can respond certain things in both languages, although she understands more in English than in Spanish because I work with her on English all the time.
A wonderful thing happened the other night. After one year of night wakings, Isabella finally started sleeping through the night. 10 hours straight. Thank you LORD!
