Hayden and Lily

Whenever Lily is in her crib and is awake, Hayden wants to climb in there with her. I asked him the other day why he does that and he told me it's because she needs him.

In the last picture Lily was starting to fuss about something and he reached over to give her a hug. He's such a good big brother too.

1 Year Old

Look who turned 1 year old on March 14!!!

This last month has been a big month for the little girl. She's changing and getting more mobile which means she's getting into EVERYTHING.

Here's information about her at the moment:

- Going through a big growth spurt. Already outgrowing her 12 months clothes and starting to wear 18 months. Currently weights 21 lbs. 4 oz. and is in the 52% percentile. She's 30 1/4" tall and is in the 82% percentile.

- Wearing size 4 diapers.

- Drinking more from her sippy cup than the bottle.

- Wanting to take a bite of everything that you're eating. She's eating more and more table food. Loves strawberry Nutri-grain bars.

- This month 3 teeth on the top have came in. Has a total of 5 teeth.

- Starting to pull up to stand while against the furniture. She will now stand on her tippy toes to reach something. Also, will let go and keep her balance for a short bit before falling over.

- She speed crawls. Her little knees are red and dry. At each diaper change I put lotion on her knees.

- Her hair is getting longer, especially in the back. It has a few soft little curls. I can now put a clip bow on the side of her hair.

- Loves to dance and wiggle when she hears music. Loves the Patty Cake song and Itsy Bitsy Spider.

- Showing an interest in books.

- Now riding in a big girl car-seat but still facing the rear.

- Wearing a size 3 shoe.

- Whenever she sees Fritz, our dog, she chases him and then will bark like a dog.

- When she gets upset she will cover her eyes and yell.

- Hayden and Lily now have little moments where they get into it. He doesn't like her touching his stuff. She goes right for his things everytime.

- Likes to give us love by patting our shoulders or kissing our cheeks.

- She's still a cuddle bug and I hope this continues for a long time.

Busy Bee

Ok...I know, no pictures.

It's hard to take a picture of a little girl who's on the move non-stop. The latest thing is to pull up on the furniture and stand. When I see her do it I run off to get the camera and by the time I come back, she's back down again or crawled off to something else. I kept it by me this morning for a good hour and she kept looking at me but didn't do it anymore. When I went to put my camera up and walked back into the living room, she was up again at the sofa.

Also, several times a day I have to rub lotion on her little knees. She crawls so fast her little knees are red and now a little dry. We've got one champion speed crawler on our hands.
