Its been awhile since we have done a roll call of the bumper crop of babies that our difficult child's have produced. I just know we are dying to brag about these darling little ones...least I am...lol. My little Princess turned a year old in June! Can you believe it? She still isnt walking yet but that should come soon. She has the most gorgeous blond tight curly hair in finger rolls all over her head. You cant do a thing with her hair! She still has big blue eyes that she just melts our hearts with. She looks just like her daddy at a year old except she has my eyes. She is saying Mama, Papa, Mema, and Dada and something that approximates bayeee which is the dogs name...lol. Bailey. She has been fully off the bottle and onto a sippy cup since 9 months. She went first to the ones with the soft spout and now to the ones with the hard spout about a month ago. She gave us absolutely no trouble with that. She doesnt even know what a bottle is anymore. It probably helps that she never took a pacifier. She is a very easy baby who scampers up to us when she comes for her weekend visits to Papa and Mema's house every weekend. Her big smile just lights up our house. She loves her Uncle Billy too. She understands the word no and obeys it! She does cry from time to time but thats ok, she redirects easily. She eats very well and is not picky at all. She is learning to self feed quite well. She loves finger foods like small veggies, fruits, cereal, cut up sandwiches, eggs, fish, even avocado. She still hasnt mastered the spoon but we shall get there. She loves her toys. She has started playing with blocks now along with her old favorite baby toys. But her favorite is still her puppy she got for xmas that plays songs and talks to her. She now weighs about 22 pounds and wears a size 12 months. Well thats my girl! Now Im waiting for number two to arrive. I thank heaven that this next one is coming exactly a year apart because they will wear the same size clothes at the same time so hand-me-downs will be no problems...lol. Lets hear about all the other babies!!!
