Stats time! She's a big girl! Her 1yr appointment was just last week and she hasn't had the vaccines yet because the clinic was out of them, but I should be able to get her in for those this week.
Height: 31 inches (95% for her age)
Weight: 27lb 13.5oz (100%-ish for her age)
Head: 19.5 inches (75% or something, didn't really look at that)
|She didn't really like the cake, but she liked|
the whipped cream frosting.
She LOVES to swing. She's working on fitting small things into bigger things, signing "all done" and "milk" (possibly more, but it's hard to tell what's a sign and what's just flailing lol), waving, getting in and out of her little car, identifying objects that I ask for, lots of sharing, and lots of destruction when she gets ahold of a magazine. She jabbers a lot but no real words yet that I've heard. Grandma says she can say "kitty" but she hasn't said it for me. However, she does "mow-mow" back at the kitties when they're wandering around the house hollering, which is rather hilarious. I need to get a video of it but whenever she sees the camera she stops what she's doing and grabs for it.
|She loves to smile for the camera, but the flash|
always messes it up somehow...
My garden is making a little slow progress, which is good considering how much I've been gone this summer, but there's a lot I want to get done still. I don't think that list will ever get shorter. :P Hopefully soon we'll get the front room built so I can get some bushes/ornamental grasses in the ground before fall so we have a head start on next year. There are some planks of my cork flooring that need to be replaced and the baseboards need to be put in and the floors sealed so more flooring doesn't get ruined by moisture, and at some point the bedroom here and the 2 smaller ones at my parents' house are getting new carpet! I'm so excited about that, the carpet in my bedroom still smells like unsupervised cats sometimes. Not fresh, so I know it's not my cats, just leftover from before. It used to be the least smelly room in the house, now it's the worst... but it won't be that way for much longer. Long to-do list... and I'm trying to keep exercising on days I don't work, which is hard to do but I just need to keep at it.
Happy birthday pretty girl! I hope this year is as amazing as the last one was. I love watching you grow into your own little personality.
