Happy Birthday!


happy first birthday to my amazing daughter!
Mommy loves you so much and I'm so proud of you! (Daddy loves you and is proud of you too, but he can blog somewhere on his own if he wants to brag about you!)


Your accomplishements so far (that I can remember as I sit her in a sappy fog):
You say:
Dada
Mama
shoe (new this week!)
bye
ball
Max
kitty
Dot
You sign:
Love (our favorite!)
milk
please
thank you

You also:
* are walking!
* blow kisses when asked
* wave bye bye
* feed your baby and Dot from a play bottle and share your pacis with them (you make a cute smacking sound while doing this-- priceless!)
* feed yourself
* can get off the bed/couch by turning around and sliding off backwards
* sit down when asked
* drink very well from a regular cup
* dance when you hear music
* lift Mommy's shirt and lay your head on her belly when asked where New Baby is
You are such a sweet sweet joy to us and we know you'll be a wonderful big sister! XOXO
