What a Wonderful Day!

Our little monkey girl turned 1 yesterday! I can't believe how quickly the last year has flown by. We have spent much of the last two days reminiscing about the day that this sweet girl joined our family.

Steve loves playing with E. Her squeals of delight are music to our ears!

Take a look at that silly grin!

Her special birthday breakfast of her favorite...OATMEAL! We also had another success, Little Miss actually CHOSE to drink her milk, rather than having it poured down her throat.

For dinner she had another favorite...spaghetti! I wish I had a video of her eating it. It is so funny to watch her try to get all of the noodles into her mouth.

We got a video of her being sung to. However, it was not a happy experience. I think it freaked her out and she screamed and screamed. Finally, once we picked her up and snuggled her, E was able to enjoy her birthday donut.

One Year Old Stats:
Weight: 19.6 lbs (25%)
Height: 29.25 in (60%)
Head Circ.: 46.5 cm (90%) Looks like she's a little top heavy :)

*Miss E cut her first molar (top left) this month.
*Loves to eat....most of the time
*Favorite foods: apple juice, orange juice, goldfish crackers, kiwi, oatmeal, bananas
*Loves to play peek a boo
*She is starting to understand what it means to be silly.
*E walks along the edge of the couch and with her walker.
*Miss E thinks she is one of the big kids whenever her cousins are around.
*She loves Sesame Street!
*She is finally starting to look at books without eating them.
*Church is now a huge chore for mom because E CANNOT sit still for more than a few minutes at a time. She will scream if we do not understand this.
*E is still a great sleeper: at least 12 hours at night and 2 daytime naps.
*E LOVES to make a mess...more on that to come.

What an exciting day for you as a mom to have your little E turn one! Isn't it amazing to think about how much your life has changed in the last year? She is absolutely adorable!

Fun, can you believe how fast the first year went? Good job for everything you guys have accomplished since then too. Give her extra hags and kisses for us too.
