One Year Old

We are officially the parents of a toddler. This little girl turned one on the 19th and has been walking around more and more everyday.

She does not like to wear bows. This makes Jared very happy.

She is adjusting to drinking whole milk out of sippy cups and no more bottles. She doesn't love it, but it's getting better. She prefers cups with straws so we bought a few of those yesterday.

She sleeps great through the night and has for quite a few months, but I usually "help" her get to sleep. She has been falling asleep on her own for a few days now (for naps and night time), but does much better for Jared than for me.

She still loves to be outside and is looking forward to swimming this summer!

She is getting into the stage where she likes to show off for people who come over and will crawl and roll all around doing tricks in the middle of the floor. She loves to have everyone's attention.

She says several words and knows what they mean: mama, dada, wa-wa (water), dod (dog), baby, bye-bye, and she signs "bath" and "all gone." She also knows where her hair and nose are and will sometimes point them out for you.

She loves babies, bigger kids, and people in general. Sometimes she waves at everyone she sees when we're out.

She's a big girl and is now facing forward in her car seat. She loves it so much better. We have her doctor's appointment next week and will let you know her stats.

She is one loved little girl!

Wow! It is amazing how fast they develop. She is darling...I love that dress she's wearing. I can hardly believe how much she's changed since I saw her in December.
