Baby Girl Turns 1

One year has gone by and it's been one of the best years of our lives. Baby Girl has brought us such joy and happiness. She loves to play right along with her big brother and big sister. She enjoys standing at the window or screen door watching them, reading with them or playing 'where's your belly button'. She is very pleasant and happy all the time. She's also very quick! She's faster than Kermit and Miss Piggy were at this age! And she LOVES to get into anything and everything. The wet wipes, the dish towels, the garbage, the movies... you name it she finds a way to get to it! She is still nursing in the morning, but loves her sippy cup of whole milk now! She also loves Reeses Pieces! Actually Baby Girl loves most any food as long as it's not too chunky. She still thinks she needs to swallow everything whole and not use her 6 teeth! Baby Girl is quick to give kisses, but doesn't offer hugs very often. She jabbers up a storm, but we only understand Mama and Dada. Oh, and Mama has trained her well... Baby Girl loves chocolate and ice cream, like mother, like daughter!!!

Here are her stats.

Weight: 16lbs 9.5 - 1%
Length: 27 3/4 inches - 15%
Head: 45cm - 50%

So, she's got a normal head size but for her, it's big! She's progressing with her weight, gaining nearly a pound in the last 6 weeks (since our last weight check), but she's also increased her activity, so the dr is not worried at all.

Alright, her birthday party... what a hoot! She loved it, all of it! Kermit and Miss Piggy thought it was great as well... sometimes helping Baby Girl too much, lol! And since pictures speak louder than words.... here we go!

Her "bestie" came to her birthday party! Baby Girl loves to play with her!Daddy's favorite thing to do is have Baby Girl sit on his lap and eat, so he bought her a BIG candy bar!
