Let's keep it short and sweet: this month was all about walking! You learned to stand up without holding on, took your first steps and then a few days later took off. You are constantly on the move, constantly communicating and telling us what you want, "ze" (this), or showing us. You still love all of the same things: balls, instruments/music, wrestling with your brother, playing in the ball pit, exploring outdoors (especially inspecting the water meters), running away from us and climbing up the stairs, and you like to know exactly what is going on. You expect to be kept on the schedule that suits you (whining at 6:04 p.m. for dinner), to be explained/shown the world, and to be treated like a big boy, like your brother, namely in the form of equal snacks. You consistently light up the room with your endless smiles, and we couldn't possibly love you any more!
