It really feels like we brought E home yesterday. I'm not quite sure where this year has gone!
After the initial newborn fussy stage for the first month, E has been an incredibly happy kid and is such a joy to have in our lives. Parenting her is such a blessing!
A few fun facts about our 1 year old:
She's right around 16 pounds right now and fits perfectly into 6 month clothes.
I'll add her official stats from her 12 month check up at the end of December.
She absolutely loves to people watch and is always content when we are out of our house.
She loves dogs and puppies and can spot one half a block away.
She has 5 teeth, all of which have come through in the last two months.
She crawls everywhere and has very little interest in walking. This is surprising to us because she was much more interested in walking than crawling six months ago. At about eight months old she resigned to crawling and hasn't thought much about walking since then.
She's incredibly stubborn just like her mama and daddy.
She will eat absolutely anything! Her current favorites are chicken, beef, peaches, apples, carrots, broccoli, or whatever I'm eating. The only food she doesn't like is bananas; she stopped eating them a few weeks ago. I have no idea what they did to offend her, but she won't go near them any more :)
She says mama, baba (daddy or puppy), and kitty cat. She signs more, please, bye, milk, and water and she's working on apple.
Here are a few pictures of the past year. It's been the best year of my life!
