As for January, we didn't do a whole lot. The month started with some new years fun for mommy. Aka a night away from Layla. It was only the second time she has spent the night away from me. It was mostly cold in January, and we spent some time staying with friends in Chicago, getting snowed in for a couple days longer than we planned.
Layla improved her walking skills throughout the month and is nearly running now. She has learned to say the usual Mama and dada. By about the end of January she was also saying eat and doing the sign for it, and started saying no by the very end of the month. It always feels like she is mocking me when she says no. She also says up and hot and tries to imitate many other words.
