Twelve Months

Elyse- It happened. The day came. You turned one and there isn't anything I could do about it. My baby is technically no longer a baby. I held you a little longer the night before and may have cried a little.

Your birthday was on a Tuesday, so the Sunday night before I threw you a birthday party. You were NOT sure about all those people in your house! But you loved the cake. You've always done this little "huhuhuhu" giggle thing when you are pleased, and you definitely "huhuhu"ed your way through that cake. You weren't too interested in unwrapping your presents (which I expected), and I know you will be MUCH more impressed with the diamond studs your daddy bought you in a few years. He LOVES you!

Tuesday on your real birthday we took a trip out to the pumpkin patch. You didn't really care about that either. But it was something to do! And later after dinner we sang you happy birthday again and let you have a cupcake. You only turn one once, after all!

Wednesday you had your 12 month well check. You weigh 19 lbs and are 29 inches long! That means you've grown a whooping 9 INCHES in a year. That seems like a lot. It is a lot. But you are still a petite little thing, and I love it.

Saturday we took your 12 month pictures with Stacey, and I can't wait to see them!

Let's see....what are you up to..... You still crawl the same way, with one leg down and one leg up. But you are pretty fast at it. You eat just about everything (although, not a whole lot in quantity!) and drink almond milk in your cup. We don't nurse during the day and you are almost out of frozen milk, so pretty soon you will just nurse morning and night. You say "dadada" and "pa-pa", but you will only say "momomomom" when you are upset at something. Not sure what that means. You wear size 12 month clothes and a size three diaper. Lately you don't seem to really care about your paci. I find that odd!

So this year was a smashing success. I love you more than you can imagine. Your daddy loves you. Your brother loves you. Your sister loves you. Your grandparents just eat you right up. Thank you for being you, my sweet baby. I have loved every minute of the past 365 days and I'm so thankful we have countless more to go.
