Birthday Girl

Oops a little late!  My baby turned 1 on May 9th.  We had a wonderful party the Saturday before where she got spoiled with gifts and lots of love from all the Uncles, Aunts and Cousins and Grandparents too. Then on the actual day of her birthday I took the day off of work and we went and got sushi for lunch and spent the day with our Cousin Sarah. 

She is such a beautiful little girl.  She is standing now on her own and taking a few steps here and there.  She is getting more independent and having fun playing on her own.  She will push trucks around on the floor until big brother comes and steals them.  Not really saying many words just yet but no doubt she lets you know what she is thinking via facial expressions and other noises. 

She thinks Richie is hilarious and loves wrestling around with him.  She is still napping 2x per day a short nap in the morning and a longer afternoon nap.  She is NOT a morning person.  She'd prefer to sleep in and Richie likes getting up early.  Her favorite food has to be mac n cheese and she also loves avocados.  She loves being outside and pulling grass and weeds.  She also loves playing in the sandbox.  We haven't done a lot of swimming yet, but so far she enjoys bath time.

She was just under 22 pounds and I forgot the length, I think around 30".  Tooth #7 & 8 on the bottom just popped through.  Life is so hectic and wonderful these days as you can tell I am rushed even typing up this post. 

In two weekends, we are going to visit my friend in Chicago and we are taking her BFF Violet (& momma Laci).  The boys will stay home.  Anyways, I wish I could document every precious moment but we are too busy living them and loving them!
