A few days late, but here goes...
You are ONE YEAR OLD! This year has gone by so fast, I can hardly believe it. Here are some of the things you are doing:
You just started to walk a few days before your birthday, and now there is no stopping you. You walk with your little pudgy left arm held up in the air for balance. It's so cute!
You can do, "So Big!" and "Patty Cake" and "Peek-a-Boo!"
You can say "Dada," "Mama," and "Hi."
You can wave hi and bye-bye.
You can climb stairs all by yourself and practically anything else you put your mind to.
You wear size 12-18mo clothes, size 4 diapers, size 4 shoes.
You weigh 22.5lbs and are 29.5 inches long!
You love playing with your peeping eggs and Little People.
You sleep all through the night in your crib, and when you wake up in the morning you play with your stuffed animals and various toys that play you lullabies, and sometimes you even put yourself back to sleep.
You stopped drinking out of a bottle a week before your birthday, so you drink out of a cup with a straw, and you can drink whole milk now! You are still nursing, but I'm going to stop pumping soon at work, :( because you eat so much food and drink whole milk during the day.
You love it when Daddy's snacking; you make a beeline for his snacks and water.
You still love playing with your brother.
You love baths and just figured out how to turn the water on by yourself, joy.
Daddy was in North Carolina on your actual birthday, but we had your party a week later. Gaga and Papa and Aunt Paula traveled so far to celebrate with you! You had so many friends and family show up to see our little one year old! The cupcakes were not my best creation...Red Velvet...but I can't do everything right, right? I went out and bought you a little cake from Meijer later on, but to my relief, you didn't seem to like it any better than you liked my cupcakes, which you did eat quite a bit of.
I love you so much and I am so proud of you, Princess!
