WOW is all I can say! You, baby girl, are a big one-year-old now. I can't even believe that one year ago today I was at the hospital meeting you for the first time. Uh oh, I'm already starting to get teary-eyed...better make this quick :) We've had such a wonderful year with you, and you are so much fun to be around. You are very crazy and hyper, like your mom and dad, but that makes you much more fun (most of the time). We are excited about your Cowgirl First Birthday party at your Grammy and Granddaddy's house this Saturday!!
*You weigh 20 pounds 9 ounces and are 27.5 inches tall. I can actually know about your height this time because you had your 12-month check up on February 1st. You had to get more shots, but you're always such a trooper with those!! There were four of them, but you only cried for a second.
*You took your first step at the beginning of January, and you took several more later in the month. Last night, you kept cracking yourself up laughing so hard as you walked back and forth from me, your dad, your aunt Kimberly, and your Grammy. I guess walking is really funny to you silly girl!
*You had your 12-month pictures taken this morning with Laura Negri. She hasn't seen you since you were 6-months old, and she was surprised at how much you've grown!
*You can say "dog" and something that sounds really similar to "Chevy" when you look at him. You also say "baby" when you look at pictures of you when you were a tinier baby in the photo album. You still say "mama", "dada", "uh-oh", "nana", and you just started saying "hi" and "bye-bye".
*You still love to stand up and push off the floor by yourself to stand. You also still love to drink your bottles while standing.
*You have three teeth that finally popped through upstairs, and we're still waiting on that last one thta is right on the verge.
*You still sleep from 11-13 hours a night. (so crazy to think that 11 short months ago you were only sleeping 1.5-2 hours at a time!!).
*You take two naps a day on most days, unless we are at a party, Bible study, or just out and about. In that case, you will take one long almost 3 hour nap in the afternoon when we get back.
*You still love patty-cake, although your "where is warehouse mouse" game isn't as fun to you anymore. You also love to play peek-a-boo with us still, which I think is so cute!
*You are OBSESSED with your 25th Anniversary Sesame Street DVD that Grammy and Granddaddy got your for Christmas. You will actually sit (relatively) still for the entire 50 minutes of the movie and sometimes another 50 minutes if I hit play again (sometimes I need another 50 minutes of immobile Lila time!).
*You have two new favorite foods: blueberries and raspberries. If either of those fruits are in sight, you will refuse to eat anything else. You eat so many of them that I swear you will turn into a berry one day! You also are in love with bananas and bagels with cream cheese (although the mess of the cream cheese is quite annoying!). You are eating everything that we do, and when I don't eat too healthy, I give you a Gerber meal which you like a lot.
We can't believe you are 1 year old today, but so glad that we get to see you grow and learn new things everday! We can't wait to see what your second year will bring! We love you sweet Lila Boo!
