I can’t believe I’m wrapping up my little 12 months of Blake posts. It hurts my heart a little bit, but also makes me a little excited for everything to come. It’s crazy how fast that year went though. I still to this day think my pregnancy DRAGGED on forever–but this first year of her little life, it’s like I blinked and it was over. It’s crazy!
She’s amazing though, seriously I can’t even describe the amount of love I have for her. Her little personality is the cutest! She makes the funniest faces and currently gives everyone kisses (aka: wide open mouth kisses. Ha!). She loves to talk and will tell you “Thank you” and “Here you go!” all day long, but the only time she will say Mama is when she wants something…she’s got that one figured out 😉 She is totally obsessed with her pups and screams in excitement anytime she hears any dog bark. Both, Doc and Howie are great with her and generally cover her in kisses right back!
I just can’t believe she is a year. I’ve been in total denial for the last few weeks, but I can’t deny it anymore..IT’S HERE AND IT’S REAL. WAH. But…okay, let’s just move on and pretend we’re just giving an update because if I’m totally being honest today has actually been really hard for me! I don’t know why…but seriously I’ve been so sad..it just went too fast.
So yeah, new subject and let’s just talk about her little monthly update. 😉
Weight: She’s weighing in at just about 20 pounds! I’m interested to see her height though at her one year appointment this week!
Routine: I never thought I would say it…BUT Y’ALL WE ARE ON A SCHEDULE! Seriously, she naps almost the same time twice a day, in her crib, by herself and goes down for bed at night like a champ! She even (and I’m nervous to say this part…) sleeps through the night..*knock on wood times twenty*
Sleeping: Like I said..she’s sleeping through the night and has for a couple of months! BUT I don’t want to jinx myself..so that’s all I’ll say about that.
Eating: She loves food, seriously can’t get enough. In fact, I’m just trying to figure out where it’s all going?! Ha! Let me just give you an example, we went to Olive Garden for our anniversary a couple of weeks ago and this is what she ate: 9-10 grapes, the entire kids serving of Mac & Cheese, 1 breadstick, 4 pieces of broccoli and apple juice in between. Like that’s seriously what I eat! It’s crazy, but I’m so glad she’s a good eater, I hope it stays around.
Milestones: Well..she’s taken a couple of steps a few times on her own..so my guess is she will probably be walking any day now! She still only has two bottom teeth, but well–that doesn’t stop her from eating the good stuff! She says “Mama, Dada, Gramama, Here you go, Thank you, Uh-Oh, Whoop, HI!, Dog (in a high pitch screech),” and loves to talk as much as possible. She answers the phone and will “talk” on it for like 20 minutes…whoops. Does that tell you I’m on the phone a lot? 😉
She’s growing and thriving and we are so lucky to be her Mom and Dad!
Happy birthday my sweet girl, don’t you ever forget how much we love you. You’re our entire world. We love you tons!
-Mama & Daddy
