How can this be? How did I go from trying to get pregnant for 8 months, to having a 1 year old. I am absolutely astonished that she is one. It makes me happy that she is becoming a big girl and is starting to really talk and communicate and be curious...but where is that newborn baby I get to snuggle on the couch after I nurse her? I am happy-sad.
Colbie, you are so big. You are so smart! You are saying "bye bye," "hi there," "uh oh," "all done," "diaper," "sock," "da da," "mmmm," and you copy so many other words and sounds. You sign - light, fan, more, all done and you are picking up new words/signs all the time. As far as getting around - you love to crawl. You get anywhere you want to go and love to crawl up our two stairs. You get so angry at me if I don't let you!! You pull up all the time and have stood independently a handful of times. If we stand you up and try to get you to walk while holding our hands you bend your knees because you don't want to stand. You just want to crawl! It is so silly. I can't wait to see you chow your cake on Saturday. I know you will love it and eat it all up! You are also my tiny girl. You have your 1 year check-up next week, but are so small, yet proportionate. Everyone we meet says how friendly you are (opposite or your sister, she was shy and sober). You are smiley and friendly and outgoing. You are also feisty when it comes to diaper changes and me dressing you, socks and hats. You really want to be on the go! I love you sweet girl and can't believe you are SO big. XOXO sweet girl.

Baylor, You are 4! I love how big you are. But don't love that you aren't a baby anymore. It feels like you were only a baby for like a week. You are so active. You have gotten more active and "boy" like this year. You constantly bounce off the walls and are moving and jumping and running and it's kind of nuts! You were so calm as a 2 and 3 year old and around 3.5 you started getting more rambunctious. I try not to squelch it, but there is a time and place for it and you are capable of listening when it's time to settle down. You still love blankie and duck. Blankie is now in 2 pieces, but you snuggle one or the other or both. You love duckie too. You sleep in your big boy bed still and share a room with sis. You nap from 2-3:30pm and sleep at night from about 9pm-7am (you go to bed at 8pm and lounge, and in the morning you lounge til 7:45am). You love trucks, cars, airplanes, trains, helicopters, semis, gators and everything and anything with wheels. You ask to play cars constantly. You still love reading books and pick out library books about cars, trucks and tools etc. You love playing outside and digging in dirt. You are also very good at riding your bike. You can run fast, jump and climb very well. You recently started becomming interested in coloring and writing. This is a first for you. You can write your name and all of the letters. They are just a tad big. You draw bikes, flowers and many other things. For your Birthday party we went to our favorite Mexican restaurant. Your close family was there to celebrate with you. You got make cars, a remote control Gator, Lego's, Trio's and a Go Blue outfit! You were so happy! XOXO, Love you sweet boy.
