One Year Old!

Sophia, you are ONE today!  I can't believe how quickly we've reached this milestone.  You are such an awesome little girl and you amaze me each and every day. 

I took the day off to be home with you today but it wasn't all fun and games.  I had to take you to the doctor for your one year wellness check.  You passed all of you developmental stuff with flying colors.  You charmed the nurses and doctors by giving them toys and babbling your sweet baby talk.  Here's the lowdown of your stats:
Birth: 8 pounds 5 ounces
1 month: 9 pounds 3 ounces
 2 months: 11 pounds
3 months: 11 pounds 8 ounces
4 months: 13 pounds 13 ounces
5 months: 15 pounds 4 ounces
6 months: 16 pounds
7 months: 17 pounds
8 months: 18 pounds 6 ounces 
9 months: 19 pounds 9 ounces
10 months: 20 pounds 6 ounces 
11 months: 20 pounds 6 ounces 
12 months!!!: 20 pounds 13 ounces
Birth: 19 inches
1 month: 20 1/2 inches
2 months: 22 3/8 inches
3 months: 23 1/2 inches
4 months: 23 1/2 inches
5 months: 25 inches
6 months: 25 1/2 inches
7 months: 27 inches
8 months: 27 1/4 inches 
9 months:  27 1/2 inches
10 months: 28 1/4 inches
11 months: 28 1/2 inches
12 months: 28 1/2 inches

You've definitely plateaued on both height and weight, which is normal.  You are wearing mostly 12 month clothing now but can still "squeeze" into some of your 9 months clothes. You wear a size 3 shoe, but getting you to actually keep them on your feet is a challenge. 

You are really getting the hang of feeding yourself, but still like to be fed occasionally.  You like to hold our hands when we feed you.  Your favorites right now are Cheerios, cantaloupe, strawberries (which you just tried today!), pancakes, oatmeal, black beans, cheese, and toast.  We give you a little of everything we have to get you used to new tastes and textures, but you're not an adventurous eater. 

Last month, you had just gotten your second tooth.  This month, you have six teeth; four on top, two on the bottom.'s been a rough month in the teething department.

You are a walking and talking machine!  You are into everything.  We have had to baby proof a lot more with you than we did your sister.  You're fearless, little girl. 

You love to read and will entertain yourself for a good, long while just flipping through a book.  You have a hard time sitting still listening to a story though.  You want to turn the pages faster than I can read them so I have to choose books with few words per page.

We had such an awesome day today (minus the shots).  I loved being home with you to celebrate your special day.  

In between the clouds, we had a relatively nice day so we managed to get outside and play. 

We had a special family dinner tonight (your favorite: pancakes) and of course, celebrated with cupcakes.  You were a little unsure but once you got your first taste of sugar, your life was changed!

I hope you enjoyed your first birthday, baby girl!  We love you SO much!
