One year milestones

I keep meaning to sit down and summarize all the little things that Teresa's been doing at around a year... Well, I finally got the chance tonight while mom's at pottery class. She's:

Walking... forward and backward.
Has a favorite song (The wheels on the bus), which she's played for many many months now.
Has a favorite book (Animal pop-up)
She says (mostly) 'light', 'hat', 'shoes', 'dada', 'doggy', 'cheese'
She signs 'more (often with our hands)', 'all done', 'milk' (although the meanings are somewhat fuzzy... milk is a catchall for food, milk, water, mama, etc. All done sometimes means 'want more'.
She responds to sentences like: 'Where's your hat?' 'Go put on your hat!' 'Where are your shoes?' 'Where's the flower?'
She dances... 'the twist', 'the shoulders' and 'the stomp'.
She claps when a song ends.
She expresses preferences (for food, for books, etc.)
She likes to read books: she turns the pages herself and often insists on returning to the 'good parts'.
She helps to get dressed by holding her arms and legs up for shirt arms and pant legs.
She responds to airplanes, cars, trucks, doggies, other kids.
She pretty consistently naps twice a day.
She sleeps in a big girl bed.
She likes to spin/be upside down/swing.
She's a sweetheart!
