1 Year Old

You are ONE YEAR OLD today! You wear 9-12 months clothing.  You are in a size "3" diaper and size 3 shoes.  You weigh 19.6 pounds.  You are drinking 3, 8 ounce bottles a day and we are now giving you half a bottle of whole milk and the other half formula.  You are eating table scraps and are a good eater.  You are still taking two naps and now sleep 11 hours straight from 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.  You are teething your molars on top and the canines.  You are crawling fast, pulling up and cruising!  You can stand on your own for about 5 seconds.  You can say EIGHT WORDS which is very advanced!  And you know exactly what they mean.  You don't say them perfectly, but we can tell what you are saying and that you are trying to repeat us.  "Bye, bye", "cat", "thank you", "uh oh", "banana", "cookie", "Momma", and "Daddy".  "Momma" is your favorite word by far.  :) You love to hear singing and love to clap and are starting to really like "patty cake".  You are pointing and start pointing and fussing if you want more food off my plate. You are waving "bye bye" and love to give me and Audrey goodnight kisses before Daddy puts you to bed.  I'm reading Audrey a story and have started reading to you a little bit.  You are a little interested, mainly in flipping the pages of the book, but we will get there.  You have been really attached to Momma for the past couple of months, which is very normal.  You LOVE swimming and splashing and have no fear of the water.  Your favorite thing is still your yellow lovie with your paci.  You enjoy playing with things with buttons to push and that make sound.  I just can't tell you enough how much I love you!  This has been the best year of my life.  You complete our family and bring us so much joy!  I love you with every inch of my being and am so glad you are mine!  Happy Birthday to our "Happy" Ava!!
