Sorry little blog and anyone who actually reads it. The crazy time of year (school starting) been full swing and there are only so many hours in a day. But even though it is late, I have to post some pictures and a little tribute to the fact that our baby girl ONE! A whole year old! She is our spunky, happy little lady and we are so thankful that she is a part of our family! We had a fun farm theme birthday party to celebrate, complete with new sparkly pink cowgirl boots for our little shoe-lover.
At a whole year old Lydia...
Loves: Mama, Dada, Noah, grandmas and grandpas, shoes, chapstick, cows, cats, books, being outside
Doesn't like: sleeping (she still wakes up a couple times each night and usually takes 2 catnaps during the day...), getting her face washed off, slowing down for too long
Weighs 23 pounds, which is just about what her brother weighed at age 2
Crawls very quickly, cruises, and has started standing on her own a little bit, climbs, loves stairs, considers any furniture an obstacle to be overcome
Says quite a few words in her own adorable little way: Mama, Dada, more, all done, amen, trees, hat, the end, moo, meow, woof, neigh. Let's be honest, quite a few of those sound very similar but I usually know what she means and she is definitely trying. She also communicates very loudly is words that I don't understand...
Of course among all the birthday festivities I though back quite a bit to her birth. And then back to Noah's. And then kind of thinking, "why in the world did we even attempt the whole pregnancy thing again?!" Because let's just be honest, the first time around it was really not good. Like life-threatening and dramatic and awful. But I am oh so glad that we did, and grateful beyond words that we were given this precious gift:
I love my one year old!
