My sweet baby girl turned ONE YEAR OLD last Friday!!! I seriously cannot believe a whole year has passed since we were at the hospital having her. What did we ever do without her? She makes life so much more fun! That is my old highchair and outfit that I wore at my first birthday party!
To my Gracie Belle,
You are such a happy baby. You only get cranky when Mama doesn’t let you down to run wild. You love your Daddy and Gran Gran best, and thats okay with me, lol my time will come. You can speed crawl, and pull up on everything. I really think you will be walking anytime, and you actually can walk, but your too big of a chicken to try. Some of your favorite foods are berries, avocado, yogurt, and puffs. You sleep all night in your own room, nap twice a day, and go to bed around 8 and wake up around 7:30. You still take 3-4 bottles of formula a day. We are slowly switching to whole milk. It seems like we have to force feed you right now, so hopefully your appetite will increase. You never want to sit still, however you do amazing in your car seat!! You love your pacis (Rudy, Gretta, Jeff-RIP, and the butterfly). I know we should start taking those away, but I don’t have the heart to do it. Your favorite toys include Sophie, your puppy dog, riding toys, and your new play table. Mama loves to play dress up with you, and you are really a good sport about it. You can say Dada, Mama (kind of), Uh Oh, Peekaboo, and Bye Bye. You will try to mimic things that we say. You sing Jesus Loves Me with Mama, and you have started dancing when you hear music. You know and recognize Minnie Mouse (Disney Trip Daddy??). You love to read, and will open a book and point to words and pictures. Your Sophie books are your favorite. You love for people to chase you while you crawl away, and you like when Aunt Tiff helps you chase AnnaLea. You have 2 bottom teeth, a top tooth, and another top tooth coming in. You absolutely LOVE to be outside. In the grass. Getting dirty. And most important of all, YOU ARE SO LOVED BY SO MANY PEOPLE!!
Love your Mama (with input from Daddy)
