Age: 1 year!!

Birthday: January 15, 2013

Weight: 17 pounds 4 ounces

Height: 30 inches

Sleep: Starting to sleep better at night where you wake up around 2/3 for a feeding and sometimes will sleep till about 8:30/9. Because its been so busy lately, naps get the brunt of everything. I try to still have you take a morning nap around 10/10:30 and then again at 3, but if we are out, you will sleep in your seat or as of late, a shopping cart. Putting you down has been really rough. You dont like sleeping if I am not holding you, which is a first. If I put you down you scream your head off. Its sad.

Can you see her on the phone?
Bedtime: Lately its been late. Like 10 o'clock late. If we are on schedule its normally around 8/8:30

You are ONE year old today! Its such a bittersweet day because I love the fact that you are growing up and "blooming" but then a small part of me misses when you were itty bitty. This year has flown. Some days it felt like forever till I would get to meet you and finally see what you looked like and what you would be like and here we are a year later and you this huge personality and sweet presence about you. I remember a year ago when I wanted you to come so bad and you just werent ready. This past year has been based around you and all on your timing. You have a time frame and agenda that you like us to hold to and so we have adjusted. You like things your way and in your own time. Its been so fun to watch you grow up over this year. You have taught me so many things in one year that I have in time over many years am still learning. My heart is so full with you. You have changed me for the better. Someday you will understand. Thank you for giving your daddy and I so many fun memories and great moments. You are alot like his sense of humor and its brought much happiness and laughter to this home. Silly girl!
