Laine is one

I adore these pics of her! She's so gentle and sweet

this was so sweet- he was kissing you and you were blowing kisses
this is my Lainey girl to a T. All smiles and happy

Sweet little Laine,

You have somehow had a birthday and turned one year old and this really, really makes me kinda sad. You are growing up way too fast. Trust me, slow down, it's not fun getting old. We recently had your one year appt and it went fantastic. You were right where you need to be on everything developmentally.

Here are your stats-

ht-32.5 inches >97 %
wt-26.55 lbs >97%
dark chocolate brown eyes and brown hair

You wear 18-24 month clothing and size 5 diapers. We have you down to 2-3 bottles of whole milk a day. I'm kinda nervous about breaking you from the bottle since that's what you use to go to sleep, but you are kind of breaking yourself on your own. You have latched onto a bear that you have and are using that more and more for soothing yourself to sleep, since you don't use a paci.

You now have 5 teeth, with the 6th currently breaking through. 4 top and 2 bottom. We are still so limited on your food choices because of chewing issues and that's why I am still letting you have a few bottles for the calories. You sleep all night!! 12-13 hrs just like your brother! You are mostly on 1 nap a day, but have had a little virus the last week and your nap schedule is a little messed up right now.

Everyone that meets you comments on how happy and smiley you are. You smile all the time and are so so happy. I love this about you, it puts everyone around you in a better mood. You LOVE your brother! Sometimes a little too much and he get's annoyed with you and needs a little alone time, but mostly he loves the attention and plays so well with you.

You say Dada, Momma, bye bye, bite, no(ba)-this comes from your brother, Da(dog) You know the sound for a sheep and a cow.

Love you my sweet little monkey! We adore you and are so blessed by your sweet spirit.

checking out Mickey Mouse

he spotted Buzz Lightyear and was so very excited

This past weekend we had the kids birthday party. We are so blessed with awesome friends and family and so many of them were able to make it out. I can't believe we now have a 1 and 2 year old. Laine is now walking all over the place. She seems very proud of herself for doing it, but I think she just desperately wants to be just like her big bubba!
