DH and I are still in shock that she is 1 years old today. Didn't I just have her yesterday?
We are throwing her a birthday party this Saturday. My sister will be arriving from Boston tonight, so we will have 2 days to prepare for the party. We finalized the menu yesterday through emails and phone calls. She ordered the party decorations online and it should be arriving today. Thank goodness for her help. I admit that I am a bundle of nerves right now. There will plenty of baking and cooking to do, so I am glad to have some help.
Plus, she has her 12 month doctor's appointment tomorrow morning which I am not looking forward to. She has to have her blood drawn and I doubt that she will like it at all. DH keeps reassuring me that it will be fine and that they know what they are doing. Normally, she hates going to the doctor's and can be quite the handful when she starts crying, so this is going to be worse.
I posted this picture a long time ago. It was taken when she was almost 2 months old. I hardly recognize her in that photo.Look at her now! I thought it would be cute to recreate the picture so we can all see how much she has grown.I love her enthusiasm.My sister got her this Cow Rocker, named Buttercup, for Christmas. She hasn't shown much interest in rocking yet, but I am sure she will like it as she gets older. Whenever I put her on Buttercup, she likes to slide off one side. I was petting Buttercup and saying Buttercup's name. To my surprise, she started saying, "Butt!" over and over again and started to pet it's back like I was doing.Hmmm...I need to be more careful about what I say in front of her from now on.
