Happy Birthday Addison

This little baby girl is 1! We had a wonderful family party last night and some hilarious stories to share...but for now, we'll just post a picture and tell you her year stats.

Addison is 23.1 pounds and measures 28" tall (to be corrected by the doctor on Tuesday). Quite a change from the 8 pound 6 ounce, 19" baby girl born a year ago. She now says mama, dada, ball, boo, uh-oh, and hi. She is getting some hair, especially on the back of her head and she has 12 teeth! She is a lightening fast crawler and still prefers that as her main mode of transit but she is becoming a more courageous walker everyday and does the best without an audience and without her shoes. She is able to walk anywhere only being supported by one finger and loves to push the grocery cart. She definately knows what she wants and will scream and shriek until she gets her way or is distracted by something else (we often fall for her antics and give in to her which we might one day regret). Her favorite food is eggs and she loves to play with balls and her picnic basket. She still sleeps 11-12 hours a night and two naps during the day. She loves the water - her pool, the water park, the bath, the kitchen sink - she isn't particular. She likes to hold a toy out to you like she's going to share and then yank it back and giggle. She loves to snuggle her bear and sleeps with it every night. We love her so much and can't imagine our family without her - it has been a great first year!
